About this Sabre 36 Express

On her second owner, who has had her since her second year, this lucky Sabre 36 Express MK II has always been kept inside in heated storage eight months of the year.  Her original owner carefully speced the boat out and she is one of the most nicely equipped Sabre 36's built, coupled with attentive maintenance

(as an example a new 2018 bimini and side curtains)

she makes for a compelling package. 

Vessel Walk-Thru

Accommodations for four in a single stateroom layout with an island queen in the Master in a full varnished cherry interior with varnished teak and holly cabin soles.  Headroom is 6'-6" aft on center-line and 6'-4" forward.  With her eight opening stainless steel ports and three hatches, all with screens, the Sabre 36 Express is a bright and airy boat but when natural light and ventilation are not enough there is reverse cycle (heats and cools) air conditioning.  Well thought out 12 volt lighting provides and abundance of artificial light throughout.

Starting forward is the Master Stateroom with a 75" by 58" island queen berth with storage in drawers under.  The hull is lined with varnished Ash ceilings where not ensconced in Cherry joiner work and there are under deck lockers and a drop face locker outboard for additional storage.  There is a lined hanging locker aft and to starboard and a private owner's access door to the head is aft and to port.

The enclosed Head is to port and features a Sealand Vacuflush W.C., ensuite shower draining to a separate sump, and vanity with Corian counter and under mount sink.

The Salon is aft and to starboard with U-shaped dinette with storage under and in cubbies behind the seat backs and in lockers and shelves above.  Dining is off a large pedestal table which drops down to berth height so as to convert the settee to a generous double when desired.

The U-Shaped Galley is opposite and is equipped with Magna Rain Forest Corian counter tops, stainless steel under mount single basin sink, 2 burner electric cook top and built in convection microwave oven.  Chilled food stuffs are easily handled in the Sub Zero 120 volt refrigerator/freezer and there is plenty of space for dry food stuffs and galley ware in several lockers and drawers.

Up three steps (with storage under) to the Helm Deck with raw teak cabin sole, helm station to starboard and teak backed Pompanette helm and companion chairs.  A thwartship bench seat aft has storage under and there is a varnished teak hi/low pedestal table that is move-able and can be used either on the helm deck or in the cockpit as one desires.

The Cockpit has an aft facing bench seat with storage under, a locker to starboard and additional storage in lazarettes P&S while the generator compartment is on center line.

Two steps up to the side decks with fixed stainless safety rails leading forward, two bow lockers stow and abundance of gear being large enough to handle two fenders each along with other gear.

On just her 2nd owner this Sabre 36 Express was highly optioned by owner #1 who worked with the listing broker on her build but only kept her 1 year in Maine before downsizing back to 25' +/- center consoles. 

Her current owner has kept her in inside heated storage approximately eight months per year and given her a high level of care.  He routinely has oil analysis done and they are all "green label' and service records detailing the 1,000 hour service will all be made available to a buyer at time of offer or survey.  Her use has been day trips and short cruises in the vicinity of Cape Cod.

Exclusions: Chelsea Clock & Barometer, teak deck chairs, and personal items; also the AB RIB that appears in some of the photos is not part of the sale.
