Sabre 34 Details & Walkthrough

Built in Maine, home to America's finest yacht builders, the Sabre 34 Hard Top Express design offers the classic look and performance for which Sabre Yachts is so well known. But the Sabre 34 has even more of the elegance and creative details that boat buyers have come to expect from the Sabre Design Team. Her elevated helm deck offers clear sight lines from the Stidd helm chair and the elevated L-settee to port provides ample views for her crew and guests. A convertible back rest at the forward end of the settee creates a comfortable mate's seat. A fully functional galley is located to starboard aft of the helm seat.Standard power for the Sabre 34 is a pair of (optional) Yanmar 380 HP diesel engines with electronic controls and digital gauges. A generator and both helm deck and cabin air conditioning systems are aboard this vessel, so you will be cruising in comfort and style.  Below deck, this 34 foot vessel is truly unique, designed as an open layout which creates a private owner's suite. A full, queen-sized berth, low to the cabin sole, is easy to access. To port and aft is a full head with separate shower stall. To starboard is a comfortable L-settee with ample storage throughout.  She is a beautiful vessel not to be missed!
