From Casco, Maine the Sabre get’s trucked, with a major escort, to Fairhaven, MA.
Our relationship with Sabre started after signing a contract with Down East Yachts of FL in October with the selection of the major options available for the boat….color, woods, arrangements, etc. Assembly started in December after the hull and deck were molded. Dave Jirikoviv did a great job.
Working with S&S fabrics, the cushions, mattress, fabrics, window covering and the like were selected.
Working with Siebert Yacht Mangement, the electronics of boat including chartplotters, radars, radios and the like were selected and layouts established.
West Marine got a monster order for anchors, life jackets, grills and the like.
Everything you need for a house…pots, pans, wine glasses, towels, etc. were ordered based on our past boating experiences.
In Feburary, after wiring the final payment the broker wrote back “congradulations on the 36,000 lbs. baby.”
In March the boat and all the misc pieces came together at Fairhaven Shipyard for the commissioning with a launch scheduled for April.
