Classic and beautiful 1982 Sabre 34 (MKI) for sale in decent condition. Many nice features on this sailboat. The Sabre 34 is a sturdy solidly built sailboat highly capable in most conditions and also provides a great stylish living space below. This sailboat would make a nice floating cottage on the water or a great way to explore the bays and inlets. This boat is in fair overall condition and could be used as-is. Some work could be done to bring her back to her former glory (repaint topsides, new running rigging, some updating). Interior is attractive and classic. Very nice layout and easy to manage. Some high moisture in the cockpit floor could be fixed at some point, but isnt noticeable under foot. This sailboat can function as-is, or could be fully restored with light effort. This is the centerboard version - perfect for exploring the Bahamas and shallow bays. Sailboat is on the hard until May and then will be in the water for the season.
Equipment: Some of the highlights here: - Sails are in good condition and were just cleaned, restitched, and inspected. ( also Includes a Spinnaker) - New Raymarine Axiom 7 chart plotter - AC/Heater unit (runs on shore power) - New propane lines for stove - Engine starts right up (27HP Westerbeke Diesel) - Recent batteries - New Raritan head - Dodger and Bimini (fair condition, could use stitching) - Three sails (Main, Head, Spinnaker) - Refurbished original Ritchie compass - Good condition cockpit cushion set - Working top loading fridge/freezer - Stereo with speakers - Interior is in good shape overall
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.
