Daryl: 5 Years with Sabre Yachts

The world of small parts lamination at the Sabre Yachts facility in Rockland, Maine, is wide open, and full of sounds, movement, and people. In the midst of all this activity, Daryl has spend the last five years crafting for Sabre,and according to him the variety is the best part of his day. During our interview I was able to start appreciating what he means – with so many parts and pieces in various stages along the laminating process there hardly seems to be a dull moment. For a man who spends most of his free time working a Christmas Tree farm and fishing, this kind of constant activity seems right up his alley.

Pepsi or Coke?


What’s your favorite dessert?


What do you do in your spare time?

I don’t have much to spare, but when I do I go fishing. I spend most of my weekends working on a local Christmas tree farm. I had a friend who worked there an he got me a job. It’s a pretty good way to spend my time when I’m not here, I get to drive ATVs through the woods all day.

Where did you grow up?

Alton, Maine

What do you cook when you’re the only one home?

Steak and baked potatoes with Brussels sprouts. I live alone, but I grew up with my aunt and my grandmother and they taught me to cook. 

If you won a million dollars what would you spend it on?

I would move to a tropical paradise, probably St. Martens, and open up my own watering hole. I was there on a cruise once and I’ve always wanted to go back.

Fishing or Hunting?

Fishing. I grew up fishing and you can do it all year round. 

If you could talk to one person who has passed away who would it be and what would you say?

My Grandfather. We would talk about life and gardening.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?

Apart from St. Martens, I’d probably go to Scotland. My family is from there, but I don’t know much about it. I think I’d like to learn.
