A well respected design built in Maine hull no.245 centerboard model making it a great Bahamas, Florida cruising boat or club racer since it maintains a good turn of speed for a 34 ft sailboat 6.5 knots and better easy to handle with her max prop, also very well equipped. Just coming back from Bahamas cruise this year.
Equipment: Recent Max prop New aluminum fuel tank Recent electronics, Garmin touch screen radar overlay, wind speed, knot log, depth sounder Newer hotwater tank New transmission, prop shaft, dripless stuffing box. Cutless bearing ,new motermounts, also new binnacle and grabbar all cables to engine new lift pump and waterpump and heatexchanger reconditioned. Refrideration 2 batteries 2 years old All canvas good condition with islinglass in dodger and connector to bimini. All cushions new 12 years ago and cleaned Sails in excellent condition Includes drifter with sock Storm sail Fully battened main new condition Rocna vulcan anchor Bottom stripped and multible layers of bottom paint applied Brightwork done All new led lighting and anchorlight 300 watt solar to keep up with refrigerator and lights etc while at anchor Full canvas cover and frame New lifelines
The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
Hull #1 - #255.
SABRE 34-2 introduced in 1986.
A keel/CB version was also available.
