About this Sabre 402


"Jim Taylor, the Sabre Design Team and Sabre Yachts faced a daunting challenge when they sat down to develop the Sabre 402 - how to fold the latest technology for safety and performance into a proven hull, rig and interior so that the "look and feel" of their proper yacht were not compromised. They accomplished this task in a superb and elegant way... The result? Cruising World's 1997 Boat of the Year." ~ Mark Schrader - Cruising World March 1997
