The Sabreline 43 was designed to offer yachtsmen the interior layout, comfort, and functional aspects of a trawler, combined with the speed and performance of a modified deep-V hull. The Sabreline 43 has a 400-mile range at average cruise speeds, and a top speed - with standard engines - of 18-20 knots. Her modified deep-V hull has a 14-degree deadrise angle at the transom, and 20 degrees amidships. Propeller relief pockets are molded into the hull above the wheels. Running gear is protected by a keel which runs aft to a point just forward of the propellers. The keel also helps with directional stability in quartering seas. Sabreline designed the interior to offer custom flexibility without driving the overall purchase price to custom-boat levels. A galley-up, three cabin layout as well as a galley-down, two cabin design are available. Standard interior furnishings are in American cherry, with teak or mahogany available as options. The U.S. built Sabreline was developed with the experienced yachtsman in mind.
