Broker's Comments

This particular boat has had many upgrades in this ownership from 2016, including Fibreglass Spray Hood, Standing Rigging (side stays), Engine Water Separator, New Exhaust (Engine), Electrics Rewired, Solar Panel, New Batteries, Horizon DSC radio, Lawrence Chart Plotter, Osmosis Prevention ( 3 coats) New Tiller & Rudder Bearings, 5 HP mariner ( 2016) She's well set up, all lines leading aft into cockpit. This is a nice example, was found clean and dry and extremely well equipped.

She comes with a mooring which is paid up until April 2020.

When Alan F Hill designed Sabre 27 in 1969, his brief was to create a yacht that the ‘average wage earner’ could afford, suitable for ‘a week’s cruise with the whole family’. She would certainly suit a small family but is also a capable coast-hopper for a cruising couple, or an easily manageable single hander.

They were originally moulded and fitted out by by Marine Construction (Marcon) Ltd. of Southampton, who also moulded Trident and Rival hulls, amongst others.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
