Yesterday, we had the pleasure of meeting our client at Sabre Yachts, in Raymond, Maine. This is one of the most interesting stages of production because it’s the last opportunity to see the innards of the boat (wiring, plumbing, thru hulls, bilge pumps, A/C systems, cabinetry, bulkheads, etc.) before the deck is place on top of the hull.
The boat pictured here is the wildly successful Sabre 48 and more specifically, hull #179. Once the boat ships from Sabre, the team at DiMillo’s has arranged for her to be painted at a local yard (tune back in for the color). At this point, the customized electronics package will be installed and the DiMillo’s Service Team will complete the commissioning process which includes bottom prepped and barrier coats and bottom paint applied, underwater metals and pods have protective antifouling applied, exterior varnish, interior varnish and testing all systems, just to name a few major pieces of the process.
