1975 Sabre 28 Mk I

Norfolk, Virginia, United States
$8,900 USD

The owner bought this boat in 2017

General condition and any additional information

Pick up only in Norfolk Virginia.

Great boat for a day sail, or weekend trip! 28ft is getting a little cramped for our expanding family, or I would keep her.

Standard features

Genoa, main, and spinnaker sails included. Used, acquired in 2017 with the boat. Genoa was repaired last year and is in good shape, main sail needs a repair near the clew but otherwise is in good shape.

Engine is original atomic 4, but runs well. Impeller, Saltwater intake filter, fuel filter, bilge pump, all changed over the winter.

20 gal freshwater tank, compact marine toilet with wastewater tank.

Extra gear included

New sheets, halyards, additional lines, boom tent, wind scoop, binoculars, handheld marine band radio, tool kit, fids, cams, life jackets, etc… all included.

Improvements to the hull, deck, rigging, engine, or interior

Bottom was just soda blasted, re-fiber glassed, and painted.

New through hull NMEA 2000 speed, depth, and temperature sensor installed.

Solar panel and SmartSolar MPPT charger installed.

Raymarine ST2000 auto tiller.
