Notes for Sabre 27 sellers

A new owner will want to know all about the boat and its equipment. Records of equipment purchases, maintenance and replacements will also be helpful if a prospective purchaser wants to take advantage of the ‘no survey’ insurance scheme. Owners who plan to sell their Sabres are therefore advised to assemble all relevant documents and receipts, so that they can be passed on when the boat changes hands. Find more information here.

The boat is currently set up as a day boat, it is designed for 6 berth but it would suit 4 in more comfort. All bedding foam is available but these have currently been left out of the boat at the moment. The boat can be under sail in a matter of 5 mins due to her easy set-up, all sails can be reefed quickly and safely.

Great first cruising boat, she has had a lot of work put into her over the last few years and is great fun to sail. You have to remember she is now over forty years old, but she is a very strong boat as these were made in Cowes and well made. We have the original paperwork for her. Currently moored in Queenborough harbour.

Sabre 27, Gayaneh

Gayaneh, Twin Keel, 1974

Latest Entry Update: January 11, 2021
Location: Gillingham Marina, River Medway, Kent
Contact: Joy Ginn
Telephone: 020 8850 7888


Keith and I have sailed Gayaneh for 40 years. Initially we crewed for Frank, sailing regularly most weekends in the season and annual holidays across the English Channel to Holland. After 12 years Frank sadly died and we bought the boat from his widow. We continued to sail the boat with Geraint, our own crew member, on annual trips to Holland and once to the Channel Islands in company with the RYA as well as competing the Inter-Club races and rallies with the Essex Yacht Club.

Sailing has been my life for over 50 years and I would love to carry on but sadly, Keith recently passed away and it is now time to sell our beloved Gayaneh. She is well equipped for comfort as well as great sailing. She is an excellent sea boat and sails well in all conditions.
