PRICE REDUCED AGAIN!!!.....Come see for yourself why the Sabre 362 was named Cruising World's 'Mid-Size Cruiser' Boat of the Year in 1994 and remained in production for a remarkable nine years. This example was recently acquired by the present owner, and a change in plans puts her back on the market. With her wing keel drawing only 4' 8" she will go places in the Bay and Delta many sailboats her size can't. Bottom paint 10/2014.
Please contact Listing Agent Jim Tull directly at Oceanic Yachts for further information or to schedule a showing:
Sailor Bird's hull is painted Flag Blue. She features a lead wing keel through-bolted with stainless steel bolts that draws only 4' 8", giving her the ability to go places many sailboats her size cannot. (4) Lewmar stainless steel framed hatches and stainless steel framed ports on the cabin trunk. There is a stainless steel guard/handrail around the companionway and a deep dodger with canvas covers for the isinglass provides weather protection. The sugar-scoop transom has a swim platform with teak treads, a great place to board your dinghy. Also there is a stainless steel swim ladder with teak steps. In the cockpit, a huge lazarette locker to port has a rack for stowing the hatch boards. Aft of the 40" wheel the port corner lazarette gives access to the rudder post and autopilot drive unit. The Edson pedestal features a leather covered wheel and teak cup holder. The cockpit is 7' 5" long. Toerails and handrails have a natural finish.
Anchoring is handled by a 25lb. plow anchor on a chain and rope rode which resides in the deep chain locker. There is an additional 12lb. Danforth-style lunch hook on a chain and rope rode.
Sailor Bird has a good compliment of sails. The main on the boom (7/08) is by North, plus an additional main with Harken battcars (age unknown). The jib is a 90% unit, great for Bay wind conditions, plus a genoa (size and age unknown). There is also a Norlon gennaker (8/05) with lines by North used only occasionally (fair).
The Hall Spars mast is a straight aluminum section supported by double swept airfoil-shaped spreaders.The mast is stepped on the keel, and shrouds are attached to stainless steel deck chainplate fittings bedded in solid fiberglass and through-bolted. Standing rigging was replaced 3/07. The jib is wrapped around a Harken Mark II furler. The boom is supported by a Hall Quik-Vang. A Harken traveler moves the boom and all lines lead to the cockpit through Schaeffer blocks and Lewmar line guides. The cabin trunk flanking the companionway has 2 banks of (3) Lewmar rope clutches and 1 Spinlock clutch. There are 2 Harken snatch blocks. Harken 48 primary winches give a powerful pull on the jib sheets, and Lewmar 40 halyard winches are on the cabin trunk.
