About this Sabre 386

The SABRE 386 was SABRE's last totally new cruising sailboat design. As you can see in the photos she combines practical cruising amenities and functionality with an unmatched elegance of fit and finish. DOTTIE B is in beautiful condition. This is an excellent opportunity to get a recent SABRE 386 and save.


The salon furniture of the Sabre 386 is crafted in American Cherry and finished with a solvent based varnish for durability and depth. The varnish is then hand-rubbed to a smooth satin finish. Sabre’s fold-up table allows dining space to evolve into living space unlike boats with fixed pedestal tables. Louvered locker doors provide good ventilation to storage spaces and overhead hatches, stainless steel opening ports and fixed ports allow plenty of light and air to fill this luxurious space. Massive stainless steel chainplates bolted to solid fiberglass bulkheads which are overlaid with cherry veneer. This construction detail will ensure long and reliable service to your Sabre 386.

The Sabre 386 galley is a sea chef’s delight. A stainless steel three burner stove with oven is surrounded by many lockers and drawers that will hold all the stores required for a long voyage. The microwave oven is standard as are the DC refrigerator, front access door for the refrigerator and the galley counter extension. A convenient and elegant laminated fiddle surrounds the countertop and a strong safety bar is provided at the stove for cooking in rough seas.

The navigation table is aft facing allowing for visual contact from the helm to the navigation station. There is ample space provided here for all the electronic equipment one would wish to install. The navigator’s seat back folds away to become part of the berth back when not in use and so as to allow the starboard settee to be used as a sea berth.

In the aft cabin, the berth is oriented athwartships to provide a large 60″ x 80″ sleeping accommodation below the cockpit. A large deck hatch over the head of the berth opens up the space overhead. A cedar lined hanging locker and vanity provide ample spaces for your personal gear.

The fiberglass head unit with separate stall shower is spacious and functional. The easy to clean fiberglass surface, a solid surface material countertop, a soap dispenser and fresh water MSD, all add to the comfort and convenience of this space. A standard macerator pump is also provided.

The forward stateroom is a popular feature for many owners. We lowered this large pedestal berth and brought it aft in the hull to allow more “foot space” at the forward end and to provide easy access into and out of the berth. The berth top is low: just 25″ off the cabin sole. Four large drawers are provided under the berth and more storage space is located in the vanity to port. The sink and vanity mirror are standard in this cabin, as is a large cedar lined hanging locker to starboard.

Additional Comments

The Sabre Design Team focused on two main issues while creating the Sabre 386. In her interior, the aim was to provide larger and more accessible berths, more storage and more comfort, and to make the Sabre 386 the most accommodating Sabre we have ever built. As for her hull, keel and rig design, she needed to be easily driven and capable of outstanding performance, yet easily managed by a small crew. New materials used in conjunction with the latest in design technology have created an exciting new model which, like her siblings, is sure to become a modern classic.

The Sabre 386 is the fifth model created by the Design Team of Sabre Yachts and Jim Taylor Yacht Design. This successful collaboration led to the award winning Sabre 362 in 1991 and continued with the Sabre 402, Sabre 452 and Sabre 426. All medium displacement yachts that are as comfortable on the race course as they are in the open ocean or on an extended cruise with family and friends.

The emphasis on an easily driven hull allows you to be sailing when others have started motoring. While any sailing yacht can sail downwind in a blow, only an efficient design with an easily driven hull shape and tall rig can be fun to sail when the winds go light. A pleasant evening sailing with friends is a rare moment to be cherished for years to come.
