The mandate given Jim Taylor and the Sabre Design Team was to design and build a sailing yacht with exceptional performance, This original owner took it one step farther by constantly upgrading and spare no expense maintenance...simply outstanding!

 The Main Salon... is impressive and takes full advantage of the 402's beam of 13-feet 4-inches. Comfortable settees are found to port and starboard, with the port side convertible to a double berth. Add a custom fold up table to make her even roomier!

  • Trac Vision Coupled to Direct TV (watch anything underway)
  • Sirius XM Radio Through The Garmin (controlled via Helm or Nav Station)

  • (2) Garmin GMI10 Information Displays.

The Galley... to port has ample storage lockers. Outboard, above the countertop, there are plenty of drawers and an ice box comparable in volume to a domestic refrigerator. A double stainless steel sink with mixing faucet is located in the island above the engine. A three burner propane stove with oven is found at the aft end of the galley.

The Head...  is easily maintained unit incorporates a marine head, a sink recessed in the countertop, and lots of dry storage in the lockers outboard. A separate shower stall with teak seat is located aft of the head. This compartment has a 2nd door providing access to...

The Aft Cabin... has a large berth with storage spaces and drawers underneath. The berth's occupants can recline with open spaces overhead - unlike the aft cabins of many boats of this type. Outboard of the berth is a long shelf with lockers, a set of drawers, and a large hanging locker

The Forward Cabin...the Sabre 402's hull volume comfortably houses a 6-foot 10-inch long center island berth surrounded by hanging lockers, storage lockers, and ample shelving; also in the forward cabin is a vanity with Corian counter, sink, and mirror. There is storage under the berth.

The Westerbeke Diesel... is located under the galley on the centerline. Keeping this weight and the weight of all tankage in the middle of the hull adds greatly to the sea kindliness and comfort of the yacht.
