2004 Sabre 386

Sister Bay, Wisconsin



Sabre teamed with renowned yacht designer, Jim Taylor, to launch the Sabre 386 in January 2004, and in 2005, the boat was named Cruising World Magazine's Best Mid-Sized Performance Cruiser Boat of the Year, as well as Overall Domestic Boat of the Year. Adesso embraces those standards that have kept Sabre at the top of the quality spectrum of boatbuilding for many years. You'll find that her intuitive and responsive handling, boat speed, and balance of form and function both on the water and below deck will exceed your expectations. 

 As Adesso's new owner, you'll appreciate the numerous upgrades and updates made within the past ten years. A Doyle cradle added in 2021 makes dropping the mainsail quick and simple from the safety of the cockpit - no more wrestling with the main in a stiff breeze. The isolation transformer added in 2020 controls corrosion and provides reliable AC current even in a rustic marina. Her Solbian solar panels and new AGM batteries allow you to hang out in that remote anchorage.

She never fails to turn heads wherever she goes. The compliments you'll receive about her rich flag blue Awlgrip hull and professionally maintained teak brightwork will lead to many engaging dockside conversations.

Adesso has been impeccably maintained and serviced by the experienced Yacht Works crew in Sister Bay, Wisconsin. She is ready and waiting in heated indoor storage for you to transport to your home port for many years of sailing enjoyment and pride of ownership.
