Manufacturer Provided Description

The Sabre 426 embraces the standards which have put Sabre's name atop the quality spectrum of boatbuilding for the last 40 years.  Current Sabre owners and those who have followed the brand over time, will see details here which make it feel familiar.  Details which make sense, which add to comfort, security and well being.  Logical details that, above all, make each Sabre design a great safe and beautiful sailboat.  But details from the past are just part of the story.  Keeping up with technology has to go hand in hand with our desire to build the finest possible sailing yachts for our clients.  The Sabre 426 hull and deck are built using vacuum bagged, closed cell, cross linked PVC foam and structural E Glass, which gives her one of the strongest, lightest, most durable structures available today.  Hull lines, underwater appendages and rig were drawn by Jim Taylor Yacht Design.  The deck, deck styling and interior were accomplished by the Sabre Design Team.  The result is a yacht which, like her siblings establishes a benchmark in sailing that will endure for many years to come.
