AVA | Sabre 386 | 38ft


Newport, RI, US


With the 386 model, Sabre Yachts worked together with Jim Taylor Yacht Design to create a performance cruiser that boasts a high degree of finish and comfort. She offers two staterooms with double beds and a head with a proper enclosed shower stall, all while maintaining competitive sailing traits. 

AVA has been well looked after by her one owner, sailing her summers in Narragansett Bay and being kept in heated storage for the winters. She has seen many upgrades including Awlgripped topsides and 3Di sails. Her interior is finished with teak and holly soles, and cherry cabinetry.

The aft cabin’s berth is oriented athwartships and has locker and drawer space along with a small settee at the entrance. The forward cabin has a spacious v-berth, hanging lockers, ample storage and a vanity mirror with washbasin. Both cabins have a warm feeling to them with their cherry cabinetry and planked ceilings.  


The galley has a Force-10, 3-burner stove range with oven beneath, along with a microwave. A two-bay stainless-steel sink is installed. The refrigerator has a small freezer section and is accessed by two chest-type top side doors, and also a side access door allowing for easy access to goods within. 


AVA was designed with a spacious head which has a divider door, making a proper, separate shower stall. The head itself is an electric Jabsco model and the 30 gallon holding tank is monitored by a Tankwatch 4 unit. 


To port is an L-shaped settee which converts into a double berth that also serves as seating around the expandable salon table. The table has beautiful inlay work and folds up into the forward bulkhead when not in use. To starboard, a settee runs the length of the salon and can be used as a berth as well. The aft-most section of the settee has a pivoting back rest which can convert this section into a chart table seat.
