Jim Taylor Yacht Design and the Sabre Design Team have collaborated on five award winning designs over the past 15 years and, for 2007, are proud to introduce the Sabre Spirit daysailor with classic good looks and spirited performance. For 35 years, Sabre Yachts has built sailing yachts with a performance pedigree, all built for people who love sailing and who treasure the exhilarating feeling that a great sailboat design can offer her crew. But just as some owners allow the time for long range cruising, there are those whose schedules require a different sailing lifestyle. And so Sabre again turned to Jim Taylor to design a daysailor with the style and elegance of sailing yachts of a bygone era, and added to the design mandate blending the performance of a youthful sport boat with "grown-up" ease of handling available with today's modern sailing hardware. To merely use a number to describe such a boat seemed inadequate, and so the name "Spirit" was chosen to better describe the very essence of this yacht.

S Yachts S 700
The S-700 is a luxurious and elegant sailing yacht with a lifting keel which gives versatility in coastal waters. There is a variety of deck equipment, comfortable interior and perfect sailing properties. The S-700 comes complete with a sea toilet, water system for the sink and two gas burners for cooking. Oak woodwork and high quality upholstery makes the cabin a cosy and functional interior. It is a very dynamic and stylish unit. The S-700 also offers the option of being trail-able.

S Yachts S 500
The S-500 is a modern Micro Tonner from Poland and has a cabin forward, but a wide open dinghy-style cock-pit with toe straps for three people hiking. Both the keel and rudder lift vertically to leave a completely flush bottom that allows the boat to dry out on a mooring. The S500 is powered by a fully battened main sail and has a retractable bowsprit with a generously sized asymmetric spinnaker to speed the boat off wind. The S-500 is a 16’ lifting keel suitable for a racing or day sailing.

First 24
The First 24 is a stylish racer and a fast cruiser, an unparalleled compromise in the category of high-performance, transportable, cruising yachts. Ideal for racing with a crew of four, it can accommodate six on a coastal cruise, and eight on day trips.

First 27
Designed to withstand winds of up to force 8, the First 27 has been certified in the CE B category (Offshore) and ISAF OSR category 3. The imputrescible foam beneath the soles renders her unsinkable.

Cornish Crabber 22
The Cornish Crabber 22 is the next logical step up from the Cornish Shrimper. Staying with the shallow draft, lifting keel theme, the Cornish Crabber 22 is easily managed with a simple gaff cutter sail plan. The headsails on the Cornish Crabber 22 are individually the same size as that on the shrimper which makes them easy to trim without the aid of winches and single handed sailing is still a reality. A little more freeboard than the Cornish Shrimper and the optional addition of guard wires makes her a seaworthy Category B offshore cruiser whilst still capable of being towed behind a sturdy 4X4 on the optional twin axle road trailer. Down below in the Cornish Crabber 22, you get the luxury of a separate forward cabin and a cooker with double burner and grill. The standard boat comes complete with the latest Yanmar 2YM15 inboard diesel engine which can also provide pressurised hot water as an option. The Cornish Crabber 22 is fast becoming the peoples favourite with many long standing Cornish Shrimper owners trading up for a little more comfort without losing that bit of charm they are so fond of.

Cornish Shrimper 19
The Cornish Shrimper 19 is our most popular model. She has a classic styling that appeals to sailors from any generation and a build quality that will match her reputation as the best British production Gaffer of all time. We have built over 1000 Cornish Shrimpers since 1979 with the original boats still sailing all over the world. The modern Cornish Shrimper 19 now comes with a choice of interior layouts and optional 9hp inboard diesel engine. Every boat is built for the owner with hull colour and interior paint / varnish finished to your liking. Top quality deck fittings, sails and accessories come as standard. The self draining cockpit in the Cornish Shrimper 19 is vast compared to other boats of her size and the companionway leads down to a classic 2 berth arrangement or modern 2+2 layout with space for a sea toilet if required.

Cornish Crabber 17
The Cornish Crabber 17 is an excellent entry level boat for sailing newcomers and a fantastic day boat for enthusiasts. With her easily handled high peaked gaff rig, she bears all the characteristics of the Cornish Crabber range. A central, internally mounted engine well can accept up to 6hp and gives great manoeuvrability and drive in all conditions. This roomy day-boat handles superbly under sail or power. She is in our opinion "the perfect trailer-sailer." The spacious self draining cockpit of the Cornish Crabber 17 can be immediately transformed into a light spacious cabin with two berths and abundant stowage, by raising the optional fold-down spray-hood. The Cornish Crabber 17 can be easily launched or retrieved single-handed from her custom built road trailer and accommodates up to five for day sailing. As with all our boats the Crabber 17 can be moulded in your choice of colour and specified with your choice of extras for a truly unique boat which will hold her value for the future. Please follow the link below for a detailed standard specification. To create your own perfect specification for the Cornish Crabber 17, please follow the 'Specify My Boat' link on the left, where you can choose from a list of optional extras

Catalina Yachts aims to encourage more family racing with the thousands of first generation 22s by offering an alternative to finding an older boat, and restoring it just to be competitive in the dozens of established Catalina 22 fleets.

Catalina 18
The entire deck, cabin house and cockpit are new for the mark II edition of the popular Catalina 18.

The cockpit seats are still 6 ft. 10 inches long and even more comfortable than before. Below is a well lighted and ventilated compartment, perfect for overnight accommodations for a couple or family with children.
