The Sabre 456 is coming

The Sabre 456 (ex-452) will make a come back in the summer of 2010. This fabulous Jim Taylor design is timeless. She sailed so well that most people would not believe she could compete boat for boat with the likes of the J46 but once the results were in, the Sabre 456 had shown her transom to most of the fleet.

In this new layout, (original version is shown here below) the forward cabin berth will be shifted aft to create an island berth forward for the owner. The owners stateroom will also include a larger dressing area, more hanging locker space and more drawers for personal effects and gear.

In her aft cabin the berth will be laid athwartships so that the guests too will have a queen sized mattress on their berth. They too will enjoy more standing/dressing space in their cabin.

Jim Taylor will be working on a new keel design to really optimize her performance with the latest research.

Look for the 456 launch in mid-summer 2010 !


And look for an updated interior layout posting in a couple of weeks from now.

    She looks beautiful! Will Sabre Yachts be at any of the Florida boat show in 2010?

    I have a 1994 Sabre 425. Some day I would like to upgrade to a 456. The two things I really like on the 425, that are not on the 452, are the 6 in hull portholes and the forward facing fixed porthole in the forward cabin. Adding them to the 456 would add the light and visibility that I so enjoy with the 425. Can’t wait to see the 456 this summer. Best of luck with her. Dennis

    Great to hear Sabre is coming out with the 456. It looks great and I bet it will sail like a demon. I’m also relieved that Sabre is willing to continue their sailboat heritage even in these rough economic times. Best of luck!
