ESMERALDE, a Sabre 386 was custom built in 2005 for owners looking for a performance cruising sailboat that was well built, and that could hold her own on the race course. She has numerous upgrades and custom improvements, and was built to conform to Newport-Bermuda Race Offshore Safety Regulations. She competed in the Bermuda Race three times, taking fourth in her class on her first try. ESMERALDE is one of only two Sabre 386’s equipped with a tall carbon fiber mast by Hall Spars, along with a deep draft keel and a saildrive for excellent sailing performance. She was the North Sails Poster Girl for Cruising 3DL Marathon sails for almost 10 years, featuring photos by Onne van der Wal. "ESMERALDE is Reserved"

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Sabre Design Team and Jim Taylor joined forces to design the 386 to create a new Sabre sailing yacht. As her design evolved, the desire for luxurious accommodations, blended with great performance characteristics, rose to the top of the list of priorities. Her performance is assured by the pedigree of her designers who's successes are already well known. And as to her luxurious accommodations, Sabre's reputation for building high quality sailing yachts since 1970 should assure any sailor of the quality and integrity of her build.

In thirty years of sailing I have never seen a boat that has been as well thought-out and cared for in every system and detail.
She has been meticulously attended to and it shows in every way.
Anyone that has ever dreamed of owning a new performance cruiser (as they don't build them like this anymore) should consider this vessel.
