In this Sabre Work-iversary post, we’re featuring an interview with Joey, who recently celebrated five years with Sabre Yachts. Joey is part of another ‘Sabre Family’ – he and his brother Peter both work in Sabre’s woodshop. His friends here at Sabre have described Joey as hard working, positive, and kind, and we couldn’t agree more. We’d like to extend our sincerest thanks and congratulations to Joey on five awesome years!
