Manufacturer 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.


"Tart" is a two cabin layout with a single head with separate shower stall.  In keeping with the Sabre quality and attention to detail the interior woodwork is satin finished cherry with a Teak and Holly cabin sole, and interior fabrics are microfiber ultra-suede.

Entering from the companionway the enclosed aft Guest cabin is to port. It features a double berth, vanity sink, hanging locker, shelves and abundant storage. Forward of the aft cabin is the forward facing Nav Station.

To starboard at the base of the companionway is a large U-shaped Galley. The fully equipped galley has both abundant storage and counter space. 

The Main Salon has two L-shaped settees. With a 6'6" headroom throughout the interior it is open, bright and airy. The port settee can extend to a double berth. The large dropleaf table services either the port settee or both which makes this layout perfect if you are traveling with family/friends. Incorporated in the bulkhead table is additional dishware storage.

Forward of the salon to port is the enclosed head with a separate shower stall. The head is an electric macerator style. There is an additional macerator for holding tank discharge.

The Owner's cabin is all the way forward with an island berth, multiple drawers, hanging locker and shelves
