DESCRIPTION

Sailing the SABRE 426 is an exhilarating experience. Her well balanced sail plan, working in concert with state of the art keel and rudder designs, makes her glide through the water with ease. The lightest breezes will give her plenty to go on, and when the wind increases, the speeds and control are a sailor's delight.

This design, like all others in the SABRE/Jim Taylor range, makes for a very well mannered yacht, handled with ease yet providing an amazing amount of satisfaction and feedback to the experienced sailor. The SABRE 426 is not another underpowered cruising boat, but rather a high spirited, yet easily managed thoroughbred yacht.

CENTURION has been regularly maintained and lovingly cared for by her first and only owner. As a result she is in excellent condition. Well equipped for extensive coastal cruising, she is also very capable of swift offshore passages.

Highlights include 23,000 BTU AIR CONDITIONING & (6) HELLA FANS, 4KW GENERATOR, LEWMAR ELECTRIC WINDLASS refurbished in 2016, DUAL STATION UPGRADED B&G ELECTRONICS, ULTRALEATHER CUSHIONS IN THE MAIN CABIN, 3-BLADE MAXPROP, FUSION STEREO with REMOTE, (6) GROUP 31 AGM BATTERIES, ZODIAC DINGHY with OUTBOARD, ELECTRIC HEAD, UPGRADED SEAFROST AC REFRIGERATION.

OTHER DETAILS

ACCOMMODATIONS

The interior of the SABRE 426 is hand crafted of the finest American cherry with a teak and holly sole. Satin varnish gives the wood a delicate sheen, which accents the highly detailed joinery work featuring SABRE's signature cold-molded curved laminated trim not found in other yachts. The generous headroom measures 6'6" in the main salon and aft areas, and 6'4" in the forward cabin. Drawers are maple dove-tailed construction with smooth sliding roller guides. Locker doors have fully louvered fronts, recessed self-closing hinges, and positive sealing push button latches. The elegant and extensive lighting is by Cantalupi.

Nowhere is the study of old and new elements more evident than in the main salon of the SABRE 426. The bulkhead-mounted table, a long time SABRE owners' favorite, allows for an exceptionally open and airy salon. For entertaining, or for simply relaxing at the end of an exhilarating day on the water, the two L-shaped settees offer comfortable seating spaces for all of your family and friends. The portside settee converts to a double berth.

Storage is plentiful both above and outboard of the settees. SABRE woodworking details found aboard the 426 are sure to please the most discriminating buyer. An optional liquor storage insert has been added to the starboard center locker.

The U-shaped galley is both functional and conveniently located at the base of the companionway, within easy reach of the cockpit. Large DC-refrigerated iceboxes are found aft where the most volume is available in the hull shape, and a front opening door provides convenient access to the items in the bottom of the refrigerator. CENTURION features a custom SEAFROST SA-III AC powered (AC) refrigeration system with additional cold plate. It runs off the genset, inverter, or shore power. The refrigerator is drained by an optional electric pump. An AC powered microwave oven provides extra convenience.

Stainless steel sinks are situated on the forward arm of the galley, as close as possible to the yacht's centerline. A convenient in-counter dish drainer/locker is located outboard and three large lockers are provided for dry goods. Many drawers are available for utensils and cookware.

The owners' cabin aboard the SABRE 426 is forward, where ventilation, light, and sleeping comfort are optimized. This queen size berth is surrounded by many drawers and lockers for storage of personal gear. The hanging locker is cedar lined. Seat is upholstered with ULTRALEATHER.

Her head compartment, with ceramic tiled floor and spacious separate shower stall is well equipped, functional, and easy to clean. Hose runs from the WC to the holding tank are as short as possible so as to minimize head odors. The Jabsco Quiet Flush fresh water head, and Tank Watch 4 holding tank level monitor further enhance this approach.

The aft cabin is roomy and airy. A clever overhead hatch (concealed under and protected by the cockpit locker lid) offers excellent ventilation as well as connecting the cockpit crew to those below. Many drawers and lockers, including cedar lined hanging locker are provided for stowage of personal effects. The standard vanity and sink allow the occupants of this cabin to wash up in privacy. Seat is upholstered with ULTRALEATHER.

The increasing use of personal computers for navigation led SABRE to supply a specific space on the chart table-top for that purpose. The inboard end of the chart table hinges open for chart and accessory storage, and a large panel for flush-mounting of additional electronics is provided in clear view of the navigator. (3) serial ports are provided for convenient connection to a laptop, the B&G Zeus system, modem, etc. The fully equipped custom SABRE tool drawer highlights the storage in this area.
