Brief Summary

Sabre's 38 Express Motor Yacht is a Downeaster for the 21st century. The term "Down East" used to evoke images of rustic Maine seaports full of picturesque wooden boats, lobstermen in orange bib pants hauling aboard pots full of the pricey crustaceans, grizzled old-timers reverting to barely comprehensible New England argot when mis-directing tourists to an attraction just down the road. But yachtbuilders have changed all that (or maybe it was their advertising agencies): Today Down East refers as much to a style of yacht as to a locale, a style that evolved from, but now bears little resemblance to, Maine lobsterboats. Nevertheless, you'll still enjoy cracking a few claws in the Sabre 38's cockpit.
