2002 Sabre 42 Flybridge

Bridgeport, Connecticut


TAJ has been owned by the sellers since 2012, and before that it was lightly used in Massachusetts by the original owners. This bristol 42 Flybridge has 2 staterooms, and a cleaner, more attentively cared for yacht would be difficult to find.  Her twin Yanmar 500HP engines have a modest 1,100 hours, and a solid cruising speed of 18-20 kts and a wide open throttle speed of 24 kts.  

She has emerged from her winter shrink wrap cocoon and will shortly be at dockside ready to board. She must be seen to be appreciated.
