2000 Sabre 36 Express Hardtop
Boat Type: Downeast Address: Chester, MD, US Price: $187,500


Traditional styling, comfortable accommodations, and quality
construction are the hallmarks of the Sabre 36 Hardtop Express, a
Down East classic whose timeless lines turns heads in any marina.
Built on a Divinicell foam cored hull with moderate beam, the bottom was
redesigned in 2000 (the MKII version) by increasing the transom
deadrise from 14 to 18 degrees and eliminating the skeg of the
earlier model. While the Sabre's bi-level cockpit is roomy
enough for some light-tackle fishing and the bridge deck has
adequate seating for family and friends. It's the elegant interior
that captures the hearts of purists. Here, a blend of varnished
hardwood joinery, solid panel doors, and a teak-and-holly sole
create a warm and completely inviting living area. Notable features
of the Sabre 36 include wide side decks, a transom door, side
exhausts, radar mast, and a well-arranged engine room. On the
downside, there's no shower stall in the head.
With 300hp Cat diesels she cruises at 20 knots (around 24 knots top).
