'About Time', a centreboard version of the Sabre 32, is the perfect combination of a racer-cruiser that can take you around to the Florida Keys, the Bahamas, and beyond. In fact, a previous owner completed the Great Loop in her.

She draws 3ft 8in when the centerboard is up to provide access to more areas. With the centerboard down, she draws 7ft for better performance when sailing. In addition to a new mainsail, 'About Time' has a roller furling jib and a spinnaker.

When needed, a 25-hp Beta Marine diesel engine, with approximately 800 hours is available.

Below deck you will find a level of detail and craftsmanship that is the signature of Sabre Yachts who creates quality yachts with classic lines, built in Maine. Louvered teak cabinet doors and a teak and holly sole create a warm and functional environment below.

We have really enjoyed exploring the northern Gulf of Mexico and participating in local races, but we are ready to purchase a larger boat for long-term, liveaboard bluewater cruising.

'About Time' is not a project boat, as she is in fantastic condition and ready for your family to enjoy! A survey from 2016 and additional photos are available upon request.
