The Sabre 34 sailboat is one of the best designs to emerge from the drawing board of Roger Hewson and Sabre Yachts. With 430 of these built, owners and enthusiasts around the world know of their high build quality and excellent sailing performance. And if you are looking for fast cruising or club racing, look no further.
Every once in a while we come across a quality built boat in need of rehabilitation. Last year we sold a Hinckley 40 cutter that is currently undergoing a full makeover. We have always felt that these classic yachts are worthy of restoration and once complete, can provide their new owners with many years of sailing enjoyment.
"Buster" is a keel centerboard model with shoal draft of under 4 feet and in need of a new home. She has not been sailed in six years and is in need of some refurbishing. Please take a look at the following pages for details and specs so that you can get an idea of what she has and what she needs.
If you have the skills and constitution to supervise Buster's rehabilitation give me a call to discuss how best to get it done within a budget.
She's a diamond in the rough and waiting for a little polishing. Don't hesitate to arrange to inspect this yacht personally in Redington Beach, Florida.

Enter the companionway to a rich teak interior finish of solid teak cabinets, bulkheads and teak and holly sole floor. All bulkheads have been fully glassed into the hull and the hull is reinforced with ribs and stringers without use of a "fiberglass pan" as found on most production built sailboats. This results in a light, stiff and strong hull.
Stainless steel chainplates are easily visible and mounted to solid bulkheads for easy inspection.
To port aft is a quarterberth with nav table. To starboard is a galley with plenty of storage with stainless steel sink with Hot Cold Pressure water service, a 12 V Dc refrigerator, and a two burner CNG stove and oven.
Engine access is through the companionway stairs and countertop which are easily removed.
Forward to port and starboard are two settes, one of which slides out to become a double berth. The dining table is hinged and mounted on the forward bulkhead allowing for plenty of floor space when stowed. When used, the table is hinged permitting dinette table for either the starboard side settee, or for both when expanded to its full cabin width.
