Sabre commissioned Jim Taylor Yacht Design to design a 45 foot cruiser that combined performance and comfort without compromising either. Jim`s work in conjunction with the work of the Sabre Design Team produced a boat that has exceeded our expectations, and which Cruising World Magazine called, `one of the year`s best-sailing boats.` Cruising performance and structural integrity did not, however, come at the expense of our traditional high quality finish. As Cruising World notes, `Often, a builder will get the big picture right but fall down on the details. This isn`t the case here.` See for yourself why this boat wins accolades wherever she goes -- contact Sabre Yachts or a Sabre dealer near you.
