About this Sabre Yachts 425


DAYSTAR is an excellent example of the very popular SABRE 425. She has been well kept by knowledgable sailors throughout her life. She features recent sails (2018), radar (2020) and chart plotter (2020).The Sabre 425 is designed to meet the demands of the sea while offering her crew handling characteristics that provide comfort and build confidence. The deck plan is thoughtfully designed for safety and ease of handling. She has a high aspect, balanced rig and a powerful hull shape that yields excellent sea kindliness and directional control. Her readily managed sail plan and rigging featuring Hood in-mast furling have been developed for the correct balance between light-air performance and heavy weather stability. She has sturdy rigging and double airfoil spreaders, a strong and aerodynamically precise design.Safety and structural integrity are incorporated into the construction by alternating layers of hand-laminated fiberglass mat and knitted roving with balsa core as an added stiffener. Hull durability is increased by incorporating vinylester resin and ISO NPG gelcoat into the DuraLam protection system.The Sabre 425 has two spacious sleeping cabins, an elegant main salon, two heads and a large navigation station and galley. The main salon is inviting, with a wrap-around settee and a beautifully finished custom-built dining table. The port settee can be converted into a double berth.The Sabre 425's hull is designed to be easily driven, with a fine entry forward and fuller sections aft. Her NACA-section wing keel achieves an efficient lateral plane with low wetted surface, and her small "skeg" with spade rudder gives the directional stability of a full keel boat with much less drag.Sailing from the Sabre 425's T-shaped cockpit is truly a pleasure. Ergonomically designed for function and comfort, the cockpit has high backrest coamings and plenty of room to spread out. The helmsman's seat is raised, allowing excellent visibility over the destroyer wheel, and two deep lockers and a storage bin keep sail gear well-organized. With over 1,500 hand-crafted, vanished wood components, the Sabre 425 is built to custom boat builder's standards.In keeping with the Sabre heritage of quality, Sabre selected the finest materials for every yacht they built. You'll find names such as Edson, Hood Spars, Harken, Lewmar and Westerbeke to name a few - a few more reasons why Sabre has come to stand for superior quality for over two decades. PHRF Handicap (average) 90.


The accommodations on DAYSTAR are excellent. It is the desirable two state room, two head, Sabre 425 model.  All interior teak finishes are beautifully varnished, overhead hatches are protected with custom screens and the teak and holly sole is in very good condition.   There is a spacious forward Vee berth with hanging locker and storage drawers.  Large Bomar opening hatch above berth. Opening ports on port and starboard sides. Separate head immediately aft of  Vee berth on port side with shower, dedicated holding tank, macerator, y-valve and deck pump-out. 

Main salon features custom built dining table with two leaves offering great flexibility and comfortable seating for 8 . Settees on port and starboard are convertible to bunks.  Ample storage behind settees.  8 custom opening ports. Custom lighting. Large Bomar hatch above dining table.  8 storage cabinets above settees.   

Aft of the Settees on the port side is a spacious galley with double stainless steel sink, 4  burner propane stove and oven (with 2 propane aluminum tanks in remote cockpit locker), two compartment refrigeration with new (2013) SeaFrost DC system and excellent counter space.   

On the starboard side is the aft facing, very well equipped, navigation station. There is great storage under and around the nav station including the Sabre “Tool drawer”.  All manuals dealing with DAYSTAR's equipment are stored within easy reach.     

Aft of the nav station is a large head with shower and shower seat.  As with the forward head there is a dedicated holding tank, macerator, y-valve and deck pump-out.  

The aft state room is accessed through the galley and extends below the cockpit.  It features a larger than standard king size double berth with lockers and storage on both sides.  It is well ventilated with 4 opening ports.  The aft stateroom has private access to the aft head.
