Dancin' Downwind is a pristine example of a very fine Sabre cruising yacht. This is a rare find in that the sellers are the original owners of this custom yacht. The finish inside looks as if it just sailed off the factory floor. Known for superb build quality and excellent sailing characteristics, Dancin' Downwind does not disappoint. She's been as far south as the Bahamas and as far north as Nova Scotia, making her equally a great Caribbean boat and cold water boat. The owners have cruised extensively, living aboard, since 2004 and have taken great pride in ownership maintaining the boat and all systems to a very high standard. Why buy new, when you can buy like new quality for half the price. It's highly recommended you view this Sabre if you're in the market for a custom, liveaboard cruising boat. Seller's are looking to close quickly, please bring reasonable offers. 

Manufacturing Description: 
The mandate given Jim Taylor and the Sabre Design Team was to design and build a sailing yacht with exceptional performance, yet still easily sailed by a couple. The Sabre 402 is fast but requires little physical effort to make her perform. She is ruggedly built and incorporates new technology such as a carbon fiber rudder post and state of the art keel designs.
Layouts and Accommodations: The Sabre 402 features a modern sophisticated interior with rich cherry woods and Antarctic White colored Corian solid surfaces. A custom Lexan companionway door with palm tree motif welcomes you below. All the way forward is a large double v-berth with en-suite vanity and sink. Plenty of storage in various drawers and a large hanging locker with shelves. The main salon is impressive and takes full advantage of the 402's beam of 13-feet 4-inches. Comfortable settees are found to port and starboard, with the port side convertible to a double berth. An elegant yacht table, which will comfortably seat six at meal time, is located on the centerline. Storage lockers above the berth backs provide ample space for stowage. Aft and to starboard is the forward facing navigator's table, which has all of the space required for a sophisticated electronics system. The navigator's seat also serves as a place for socializing with the cook when meals are being prepared in the galley to port. To starboard and aft of the nav station are the head and shower. Molded in fiberglass, this easily maintained unit incorporates an electric, fresh water marine head, a sink recessed in the countertop, and lots of dry storage in the lockers outboard. A separate shower stall with teak seat is located aft of the head. This compartment has a door providing access to the aft cabin. The aft cabin has a large berth with storage spaces and drawers underneath. The berth's occupants can recline with open spaces overhead - unlike the aft cabins of many boats of this type. Outboard of the berth is a long shelf with lockers, a set of drawers, and a large hanging locker.
