The Sabre 28 is a small recreation keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with extensive teak wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig, a rake stern, vertical transom, skeg-mounted rudder controlled by an Edson Pedestal Steering Wheel and a swept fixed fin keel (4'3'' draft). 6' headroom in cabin. 

The hull of the Sabre 28 is constructed of solid laminate fiberglass and polyester resin. The deck is balsa-cored for stiffness with plywood core at high stress areas such as winch mountings. The deck-to-hull joint uses an inward flange and is securely fastened with stainless steel bolts on approximately 6" centers. You will find the construction details of the Sabre 28’ among the best of any 28-foot production boat on the market. Secondary bonding and attachment of bulkheads and structural members is almost always flawless.
