About this Sabre Yachts 38


BLACK SEAL is an exceptionally well-equipped example of one of the best cruising sailboats ever designed by SABRE yachts. With her aft cabin layout, spacious interior, and classic yet contemporary lines, the SABRE 38 Mark II is often mistaken for a much newer yacht. This boat is in excellent condition with a beautiful FLAG BLUE hull, and many recent sail, mechanical, electrical, and cosmetic upgrades.

The SABRE 38 Mark II achieves high performance levels through a unique combination of power and handling characteristics. So whether you are bluewater sailing or cruising to your favorite local destination, this yacht gives you the control you need while providing comfort and convenience.


With a separate cabin fore and aft and a spacious main salon, the SABRE 38 can easily accommodate three couples with privacy. Elegantly finished in teak, she makes entertaining at the dock or at sea a pleasure.

Below, BLACK SEAL has 6' 4" of headroom, a teak and holly sole throughout (refinished 2010), and navy blue upholstery. The aft cabin is a delightful retreat, with a comfortable double berth, a wide settee and hanging locker, and plenty of shelf space. The forward cabin has a wide V-berth with custom fitted sheets, hanging closet, and an elegant vanity with sink and settee.

The main salon features a large dining area with contoured seating and a handsome teak table. When not in use, the table folds up against the main bulkhead, and the port settee converts to a double berth. A brass oil lamp adds a touch of elegance. The starboard settee serves as another berth. The aft facing nav station enhances communication with the cockpit, and features its own seat and plenty of room for electronics.

The L-shaped galley is simply a pleasure to be in. With generous storage and counter space, it has everything needed to prepare an elegant meal including a well insulated icebox with Seafrost engine-driven refrigeration (rebuilt 2015) and Plexiglas shelves, deep double stainless steel sinks, and a four burner Regal propane stove with oven. Custom teak trash and sink covers.

Hull & Deck

The SABRE 38 Mark II is designed to enhance every aspect of her performance. Her ergonomically designed cockpit measures 8' 3" long and is fitted with top quality hardware. This SABRE's hull is designed to be easily driven while carrying the weight of a moderate displacement yacht. It's a powerful hull shape that yields speed, stability, and sail carrying ability.The rudder, a semi-elliptical foil section, adds to the yachts performance abilities. Her small integrated skeg provides the directional stability of a full keel boat with much less drag and much better maneuverability.

The hull and deck are made of hand laminated fiberglass matt and knitted roving with balsa core as a stiffener. SABRE increases hull durability by incorporating vinylester resin and ISO NPG gelcoat into their Duralam protection system.
