2006 Sabre 426

Stevensville, Maryland


The Sabre 42 Express is considered by many to be the best coastal cruiser created by Sabre Yachts. This 2006 offering is a CLEAN example of this impressive downeast design. The yacht has been professionally maintained by expert technicians. ARCTURUS is equipped with all the creature comforts, and is beautifully finished. She offers a phenomenal ride with her twin "common-rail" Cummins 500 turbo-diesels and "fly by wire" electronic engine controls. A stunning Flag Blue Awlgripped topsides, a Freedom-lift dinghy launch, an Avon inflatable RIB with Honda 15hp, her "tried-and-true" Direct Drive shafts, and her bow thruster for added maneuverability, collectively make her a well-equipped, beautifully finished, gentleman's cruising yacht.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Sabre 426 embraces the standards which have put Sabre's name atop the quality spectrum of boatbuilding for the last 30 years. Current Sabre owners and those who have followed the brand over time, will see details here which make it feel familiar. Details which make sense, which add to comfort, security and well being. Logical details that, above all, make each Sabre design a great safe and beautiful sailboat. But details from the past are just part of the story. Keeping up with technology has to go hand in hand with our desire to build the finest possible sailing yachts for our clients. The Sabre 426 hull and deck will be built using vacuum bagged, closed cell, cross linked PVC foam and structural E Glass, which will give her one of the strongest, lightest, most durable structures available today. Hull lines, underwater appendages and rigs were drawn by Jim Taylor Yacht Design. The deck, deck styling and interior were accomplished by the Sabre Design Team. The result is a yacht which will, like her siblings, establish a benchmark in sailing that will endure for many years to come.
