Tailwind is a beautiful example of Roger Hewson ‘s best performing sailboat design. Her whole design captures performance, refined styling, elegance and sea kindliness all in one boat. The design of the Saber 36 features a fine entry forward for excellent windward performance and a long run aft for ultimate sea kindliness. Her deep fin keel and easily driven moderate displacement hull shape make the Sabre 36 a top performer. Sabers are not wet race boats, nor are they heavy displacement tanks. They are comfortable, fast and highly refined yachts. This is a safe, comfortable cruiser that performs well and has been continually upgraded to be in very good condition
