SOLD 1987 Sabre 42 CB



‘Senta’ is a 1987 Sabre 42 Centerboard. The Centerboard is highly desirable option expanding the sailing performance while not limiting her harbor access. “Roger Hewson, the Sabre 42’s designer, clearly had a broader focus than pure performance when drawing her lines: He intended her to be comfortable and safe in open ocean.” – Rich Hoyer, Rover’s Blog. The overall original condition of Senta is near immaculate, with recent additions such as solar power, A/C and Bow Thruster. The current owner has spent the last 8 years of ownership refitting the mechanicals, rigging and amenities, which has made Senta up to date from bow to stern. She is suitably powered with a regularly serviced, Westerbeke 46HP that has 1470 hours. Senta can be enjoyed in local cruising or sailed up and down the eastern seaboard.
