FOR SALE | 2019 Sabre 66 Dirigo

2019 Sabre 66 Dirigo | $3,100,000

Unique opportunity to own the only Sabre 66 on the market

Recently relocated to Newport, RI for the summer season!

The construction, fit and finish and hardware on the Dirigo were all designed to be a notch up from the rest of the Sabre product line.  Notably the custom cast stainless deck hardware, the detail in the interior joiner work--even a full Miele appliance package in the galley and the Sub Zero's on the bar deck.  

The Dirigo also offers forward thinking in technology through out the boat. There is a C Zone system for  full ships control and monitoring through iPads located n the salon and master, power actuated salon entry doors, side door and side windows--none of which are found in the rest of the product line. 

Handling the Dirigo by a couple has proven been manageable.  Wide walk arounds, side doors, IPS Joystick control with position hold and plenty of storage are features that make operating the vessel a breeze.

Whirl Away highlights include:

  • Variable speed bowthruster
  • Yacht controller
  • A cavernous master cabin rivaling an 80' yacht
  • Mini galley aft of salon in addition to full galley down
  • A full height engine room with access around and above the engines
  • A pump room forward under the galley
  • Large anchor lockers for fender storage
  • Transom storage
  • Wide walk arounds
  • IPS 1200's
  • C Zone whole boat control
  • Full size galley refrigeration 
  • PEP Wave system for WIFI for shore based or cellular data
  • Carpeting throughout
  • Custom bedding throughout
  • Garmin Cameras for docking and security
  • Ultra anchor with ultra anchor swivel
  • AB 12' VS with 40 hp Yamaha and removable chalks
  • Custom brushed aluminum boarding ladder for better fixed dock accessibility (and easy to remove and store)

The Sabre 66 Dirigo is the largest downeast style cruiser manufactured in the US.  Whirl Away has seen the best in care since she rolled out of Sabre Yachts facility in downeast Maine.  Very lightly used, but kept by a knowledgeable captain and crew since purchased just a few years ago.  Indoor stored when not in use and professionally maintained.  Whirl Away is not a boat to be missed!

The layout and interior accommodations are both very well thought out AND executed.  The cockpit offers an excellent entertaining platform with an gorgeous high gloss aft deck table and room for six.    The bar deck aft of the salon offers refrigeration, ice maker, wine storage, glass and dry storage, and a sink, which more than support a bar and preparation/service of light meals and drinks--and direct connection to both the aft deck and the salon.

The salon features an over sized u-shaped sofa with an ingenious table.  It can be extended to it's max length and put at table height for dining, or retracted and lowered electrically for an unimposing cocktail table.    Opposite the sofa is a 50" TV on a lift, flanked by two full size, comfortable club chairs.  TThere is plenty of storage throughout the salon and into the helm deck.  

Excellent 360 degree visibility is achieved from the two Stidd captains chairs.   Visibility over the bow at cruise speeds in any condition is remarkable thanks to an excellent hull design as well as the Humphress and the trim assist feature through IPS.

To starboard and down a few steps is a true chef's galley.  A full sized refrigerator, an oven, microwave, dishwasher, appliance garage and ample drawer and cabinet storage.

The sleeping accommodations include a guest berth, a VIP midship and a full beam master aft.   The guest berth forward offers the optional scissor berth layout which allows the center island pedestal berth to be electrically split into a v berth function to create flexility, for kids, guests or crew, or sit in in its closed position as a queen.  The shower is to port and the head to starboard is en suite but also opens into the companion way to function as the yacht's day head.    The day head is beautifully designed and finished with high gloss counters, cherry and holly soles, leather wrapped stainless grab bars and thoughtful lighting.

Aft of the forward cabin is the midship VIP.  It offers double doors to open up an atrium like feel with the galley down arrangement.  It has an en-suite head with shower finished in upgraded tile and glass doors.

Down three steps from the galley is a vestibule to the master that offers full size stacking washer and dryer, an AV cabinet and storage.  

The master cabin is arguably the best in it's class.  The size and features rival those on 75'+ yachts.   She offers a king size bed, a sofa, a walk in closet, and multiple drawers and storage cabinets.  The finish is elegant with ample lighting on dimmers, subtle wall coverings and tasteful soft goods.  The head offers a large tiled shower, a beautifully finished vanity, a large hamper and an oversized commode.  Natural light permeates the cabin while the reflective qualities of the water coming through the hull ports enhance the ambiance of the room.
