Broker's Comments

The Sabre 27 was designed by Alan F. Hill and the prototype was built in 1969 by Eric White of Marine Construction (UK) Ltd (Marcon). Between 1969 and 1979 some 400 hulls were moulded.
This is another one of those boats that makes you wonder how Westerly ever made the Centaur so popular. For one thing it looks like a proper yacht, not a floating caravan, a pretty boat indeed.
Although this example is now getting on in years, her present owner has kept an ongoing policy of constant maintenance and upgrading. She is therefore in a good sail-away condition, ready to please a new owner for many years to come.

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