Re: Tartan or Sabre ? Here's a Couple Examples

Ahh. Email. Next tip. Brokers are a business. It's not for fun. Since brokers can only work with one person at any one moment, they are constantly judging whether they are "wasting" time with someone.

Email enquiries from people you don't know are usually a waste of time. Thirteen year old kids, Nigerian scammers, someone in prison (really!), etc.

So I always make first contact with a broker by phone. Right away I tell him a bit about myself (last boat owned, why the boat I'm calling about seems like a possibility) After the first call, Email is OK.

By the end of the call, you want him thinking "This guy's going to buy a boat from someone".

When you are getting serious about the boat (either before an offer or before you come up in a negotiation) ask to have a call with the owner. When buying any boat the two things you care most about are:

1: Build quality. In the case of Sabre and Tartan you know it's very good. Little Harbor, Hinckley, Oyster, Shannon, etc. are a notch up but you pay for it.

2: How well has it been maintained? You'll know the answer to this question after talking to the owner for 10 minutes.

i hear you on the apples to apple with the difference in size. I suppose a better questions would be WHICH of the two sabres look like a better value. and then more of a question on the two brands. is there a tartan that is closer to compare? any other suggestions?

obviously the price of the 88 is more desirable. If i can save 50-80k and get a great boat for the next several years that still is worth something come upgrade time, im all about it! i really appreciate the pointers. Im looking at the 1994 sabre next tuesday and hopefully the 88 the following week as well.

-Jonathan

Sight unseen, of the two Sabres...the '94 is 6 years younger, and looks to be better equipped..and the equipment is newer...it appears that the dinghy, motor, life raft, SSB radio are all conveying...there's no age on the dinghy but the outboard is new. There's no age given on either large roller furling. SO I'd guess that the 94's is original....I prefer the dutchman (94) over the lazy jacks...

The spead in asking price...$31,000....is 5 m per year of age diff....the equipment I mentioned above could run you..close to $10,000 to replace..
So that boils down to 21,000 diff. for a boat 6 years younger.

This is just "asking price" ..you may pay less...

I'm not suggesting that you buy a boat for it's equipment....but you should factor it in to the entire process. You will get a sense of how well maintained each is when you board. How clean are the bilges, the engine room, is it a dry boat, no sign of water intrusion.

A good survey and sea trial are essential...

I don't know enough about Tartans, other than it's a quality vessel..

If I were shopping for a 42 sabre...I'd be looking very hard at the 94...

Personally, I don't need a boat that large. I single hand often. I also like to keep my bridge clearance under 60 ft, etc. I like the newer sabre 362's.
I sail regularly on a newer 386...in my experience Sabres are all great sailing vessels..

Re: Tartan or Sabre ? Here's a Couple Examples

I looked at alot of Sabres and Tartans and finally bought a Bristol 38.8. Having said that, I'd look at the Tartan 3800 or Tartan 40 if you can find one in good condition. I was very interested in a Tartan 40 until the survey revealed that the electrical system would have to be redone. Also, the majority of Tartan 40s were LNG boats, not LPG. So that's 5 grand off the top to convert to propane-- and don't let the broker tell you it will cost less, at least if you want it done right.

Tartan 40's are nice, though. Good sailers, double quarter cabin aft, excellent storage. It's a better boat than the Sabre 38 MK2, and probably equivalent to the 402. I don't know how it stacks up against the 42 foot Sabres.

Re: Tartan or Sabre ? Here's a Couple Examples

Looked at the sabre 42 today with Linda. A turn key boat for sure with minor cosmetics.

I have been lured to a 1988 Alden that has been on the hard for 2 1/2 years with a seller that is really motivated. I have a survey from a year ago where another buyer came close but didn't pull the trigger.

My main concern is centered around moisture. How is it possible to check when the boat has been on land for so long? How long will she have to be in the water prior to the survey? If there is moisture how screwed would it be to repair?

I think i can get a great deal and if restored back to her original glory she would be a dream boat for the family.

I'm going tomorrow to make an offer contingent on the sea trial, and a new survey.

Thoughts?

REMARKS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
ECCO DOMANI was found “Good” overall condition. The vessel is well built and has been generally well maintained over the years. The engine space has all new wiring, plumbing, blower, fuel line runs , sound insulation and etc. The interior has been refinished, and head liner replaced. The Awl grip on the topsides is reported as new. The hull was found in very good condition, coring in apparent solid condition. The deck is generally sound, deficiencies of the deck noted in the report are normal for a vessel of this age, and present no apparent compromise to seaworthiness. Attending to the deck is recommended at some point in the future to mitigate further moisture intrusion, and to preserve the value of the vessel.
In as far as may be ascertained from a general inspection, without making extensive removals or opening up to expose ordinarily concealed areas, and without taking borings to determine thickness or soundness of structures and members, or testing for tightness of components. Upon compliance with the following required items, this vessel should represent a sound financial and insurance risk.
Note: The N.F.P.A. National Fire Protection Association, and ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council), do not represent legal requirements, only safety standards. Non -conformity can affect insurance. U.S.C.G Requirements are law by the Federal Boat Safety Act of 1971.
* REQUIRED NOW:
  • 1 Assure a minimum of (3) visual distress signals are aboard that have future expiration dates. (consider SOLAS standard) (46CFR28.145)
  • 2 Assure that all navigational lights are operational.
  • 3 Recharge engine space automatic fire extinguisher
  • 4 Exercise frozen engine intake thru hull valve.
    ** RECOMMENDATIONS:
    Safety Equipment
  • 5 Suggest carrying appropriately sized soft wood tapered plugs at each thru hull fitting below the LWL as a precaution against fitting failure.
  • 6 ABYC recommends annual servicing and tagging (46CFR28.155) of handheld and engine space automatic fire extinguishers.

You won't be disappointed with a Tartan. And you will have excellent value getting a modern, late model, hi-tech beauty - besides not having to worry about replacing tanks, or rig. Awesome boat (I have a 4100)

Re: Tartan or Sabre ? Here's a Couple of Examples

Congrats. be sure to join the Tartan email list - I think the best thing about a Tartan is the very smart and communicative email list.

Did you get to look at the Sabre 425? What did you think? Was the boat in good shape? Also did you happen to notice the size of the berths -- are they decent for this type of boat?
