ABOUT LIGHTEN UP

Very Serious two boat owners lowered price again to encourage a prompt sale on this popular well equipped shoal draft performance cruiser!

In 1988 Sabre Yachts introduced The MK II version of their 38. It was the model

that made the other manufacturers redo their mid size range to include a private

double berth quarter cabin. The MK II had the accommodations and feel on the

water of a 40 footer. Sabre offered three keel version (a deep fin drawing 6'6"; a

wing keel drawing 4'11" and a keel centerboard version drawing 4'3" )

"Lighten Up" is the centerboard version, which is the best choice for the

Chesapeake, Bahamas and Keys. This Sabre has been upgraded over the last 6 years

and is offered for sale due to the owners purchase of a 2nd boat.

galley, 7 berths, an expansive salon, head and navigation station.

storage and opening, screened portlights.

Just forward of the aft cabin is a well-appointed galley, with oven, rangetop,

double stainless steel sinks, refrigerator and ample storage.

The nav station is outboard to starboard, with a proper storage desktop, main

panel, Victron Battery Monitor, VHF, battery switch, and stereo.

The main salon features a large dining area with contoured seating and a

starboard settee serves as another berth.

The forward cabin has a wide V-berth with custom mattress (2014), long enough
