The Sabre 38 Hardtop Express offers an excellent ride in many sea conditions. “BlueFish” is in very good shape and her Flag Blue painted hull shines like new. The boat through out is in very good condition. One enters the cockpit through a transom door, and moves forward up to an elevated helm deck with plenty of seating for guests, a wet bar and helm controls. Moving forward and down stairs one enters the spacious main salon with a galley to port, convertible settee to starboard, head forward to port and master stateroom all the way forward. “BlueFish” has the highly coveted hard enclosure, and has been maintained in Bristol fashion. A must see for a Sabre Yacht enthusiast.
