New Model: Sabre 66 Dirigo

The largest and most luxurious Sabre motor yacht to date the 66 Dirigo has finally launched in the water. The Sabre 66 Dirigo is the first American built, Down-East style motor yacht of this size to be introduced to the market. She is a design of Kevin Burns.  The 66 Dirigo features a functional fore-deck which joins to a spacious and comfortable cockpit. The best deck hardware, on-deck walking surfaces that are safe and secure, hand holds wherever they are needed, all speak to Sabre’s 45 year history of building boats for people, and how they should be equipped.  Sabre 66 Dirigo will feature a three double cabin interior with a large full beam midships located owners stateroom, and two similar size VIP suites forward and to port side.  66 Dirigo is to be powered by twin Volvo 900hp units, with the large IPSIII forward looking pod drives units.
