Newport: Sabre 38 Hardtop Express

The 21,500-pound vessel was launched in Maine earlier this year, and made her public debut in Newport. She sports two standard 380-hp Yanmar 6LY3A-UTP diesels, a ZF 220-A transmission, and four-blade nibral wheels to help propel her through the water. Teleflex hydraulic steering and Bennett trim tabs comprise her steering and trim systems, respectively. A deep-V planning hull with shallow prop pockets combined with a 16-degree deadrise should help her performance, and her 38’6” LOA means you probably won’t have trouble finding room for her at your local marina. You can learn more at Sabre's Web site, and while you're there, check out the new 42 Express—another head-turning Downeast boat.
