Sabre is built "old school". The hull is supported by stringers and grids which are lamiated into the hull to give structural integrity and stiffness to the yacht. All bulkheads are glassed into the hull and tabbed to the deck. All furniture is built up from the bottom in the "sticks" method. No pan or liner is used to stiffen the hull.

This method of construction used by Sabre Yacht is more akin to high end custom yachts than the production boats commonly seen today. This method results in a lighter, stiff and extremely strong vessel. She is also a fast yacht with superb handling characteristics, which is a hallmark of Sabre Sailing Yachts.
