The interior of the Sabre 426 is hand crafted of the finest American cherry with a teak and holly sole. Satin varnish gives the wood a delicate sheen, which accents the highly detailed joinery work featuring Sabre's signature cold-molded curved laminated trim not found in other yachts. The generous headroom measures 6' 6" in the main salon and aft areas, and 6' 4" in the forward cabin. Drawers are maple dove-tailed construction with smooth sliding roller guides. Locker doors have fully louvered fronts, recessed self-closing hinges, and positive sealing push button latches. The elegant and extensive lighting is by Cantalupi.
Nowhere is the study of old and new elements more eveident than in the main salon of the Sabre 426. The bulkhead-mounted table, a long time Sabre owners' favorite, allows for an exceptionally open and airy salon. For entertaining, or for simply relaxing at the end of an exhilerating day on the water, the two L-shaped settees offer comfortable seating spaces for all of your family and friends. The portside settee converts to a double berth.
Storage is plentiful both above and outboard of the settees. New Sabre woodworking detail found aboard the 426 are sure to please the most discriminating buyer.
The U-shaped galley is both functional and conveniently located at the base of the companionway, within easy reach of the cockpit. Large DC-refrigerated iceboxes are found aft where the most volume is available in the hull shape, and a front opening door provides convenient access to the items in the bottom of the refrigerator.
Stainless steel sinks are situated on the forward arm of the galley, as close as possible to the yacht's centerline. A convenient in-counter dish drainer/locker is located outboard and three large lockers are provided for dry goods. Many drawers are available for utensils and cookware.
The owners' cabin aboard the Sabre 426 is forward, where ventilation, light, and sleeping comfort are the best. This queen size berth is surrounded by many drawers and lockers for storage of personal gear. The hanging locker is cedar lined.
Her head compartment, with ceramic tiled floor and spacious separate shower stall is well equipped, funtional, and easy to clean. Hose runs from the WC to the holding tank are as short as possible so as to minimize head odors. The Jabsco Quiet Flush fresh water head, and Tank Watch 4 monitor further enhance this approach.
The aft cabin is roomy and airy. A clever overhead hatch (concealed under and protected by the cockpit locker lid) offers excellent ventilation as well as connecting the cockpit crew to those below. Many drawers and lockers are provided for stowage of poersonal effects. This boat features addtional drawer storage in lieu of the standard vanity and sink.
The increasing use of personal computers for navigation led us to supply a specific space on the chart table-top for that purpose. The inboard end of the chart table hinges open for chart and accessory storage, and a large panel for flush-mounting of additional electronics is provided in clear view of the navigator. The fully equipped custom Sabre tool drawer highlights the storage in this area.
