Default My new Saber 28 Offshore

Just picked up this 1987 Saber, Hull# SBVA0001B787. Picked it up at an auction and do not know much history on boat. It was a Michigan title. Does anyone recognize it? I now have 2 boats. I am putting my 1995 Sunsation Aggressor up for sale now that I have this one to play with, if anyone is interested. MIKE

You could say that!! I had no idea what to expect. Im still not sure what to expect untill I get it out and run it a little. Will have to wait a couple more weeks. Would also know what kind of horse power this engine has got.

Your right that is the first Saber, lived the majority of its life in Dutton Michigan. Owner was Craig Ellis, I believe he currently has a 30 plus Cigarette.

He owns Appearance Products if you want more history
