This spring and summer has, no doubt, been a unique time. There is not a person, a family, a small business owner, a large corporation, medical personnel, etc. that is not affected by Covid. We boaters have always been a special group and in this climate, it is one of the few activities that can safely be enjoyed. We are seeing a large number of new boaters emerge as people explore new way to spend their time and are thrilled to welcome these folks to our special community.
On Friday, we had a rare opportunity to photograph something pretty darn special. Sabre's newest model, the 58 Salon Express, left the factory in January, before the Pandemic exploded. In February, Hull #1 was shown at the Miami Yachts Show and was due to officially debut at the Palm Beach Boat Show in March. In March, the world as we knew stopped and all foreseeable boat shows were cancelled. Amidst the struggles of Covid, remote work and Sabre shutting down for a period of time, Hull #2 and Hull #3 were completed, transported over the road, launched and run to DiMillo’s Marina. They are now receiving their final touches for delivery to their new owners.
