Your Day on the Water just got better!

This beautiful performance cruiser has spent her entire life on the cold, clean, freshwater of the Great Lakes. She is in outstanding condition with many recent upgrades and extras (including NEW sails) that will enhance your sailing experience, and extend the life of this classic yacht for many more years of dependable sailing. This boat is a joy to sail, comfortable to live aboard, and beautiful to look at. You will get many envious stares with each new port of call.


Sabre sailboats are known for their solid, high quality construction. The interior is varnished teak & cherry with white overhead, hunter green upholstery, multiple opening ports, and a teak and holly cabin sole. “Windwalker” has the classic warmth and appeal of a true yacht.

Good light and ventilation are provided by multiple opening ports w/screens, Dorade vents, screened deck hatches, and the companionway has both proper drop boards and decorative teak hinged door. The interior grab rails make movement below decks safe and secure in a seaway.
