36’ Sabre 362



Located In: San Carlos, Mexico
Year: 1994
Hull Material: Fiberglass
Yachtworld Number: 3747796

A great solid classic from Sabre Yachts. This is not your average 362; it was extensively upgraded in 2017. Upgrades include:

Professionally installed hydraulic auto pilot

  • New chart plotter with gauges
  • Solar panels
  • LED lights
  • Inverter/charger
  • Expanded battery capacity
  • Radar,
  • Outboard lift,
  • LED TV,
  • Satellite email & text

All of the upgrades have served to make a great boat for sailing the Sea of Cortez during the last two years

From Practical Sailor:


Because a lightweight speed demon was not a criterion for the 362, more attention is given to producing a strong hull and deck structure than to counting ounces of resin and fiberglass.

The hull and deck are cored, laid up by hand using a different schedule than most manufacturers: The bottom is balsa-cored to the waterline, except on the centerline, where it is reinforced with eight layers of overlapping bi-axial and unidirectional reinforcing cloth to provide impact resistance and reinforcement for the keel and skeg. The engine bed is constructed of plywood stringers with threaded steel caps encased in fiberglass into which engine bolts are threaded.

The hull is further stiffened by installation of furniture components and cabinetry, all of which are tabbed to the hull. We think this method produces a stronger, quieter and more accessible structure than installation of pre-molded pans.

Topsides are solid fiberglass, the major difference between Sabre and other maufacturers who want stiffness in the large unsupported panels of the topsides, and don’t want the risk of wet balsa below the waterline. Sabre’s reasoning is that balsa stiffens the high load panels of the underwater hull, but because it sells mostly dark-colored hulls, it’s use in the topsides too often causes print through.

In the deck, marine mahogany plywood replaces the balsa in high load areas and where deck fittings and hardware are to be installed.

Vinylester resin under the ISO NPG gelcoat provides a superior moisture barrier; Sabre calls its protection system Duralam™. The company warrants that “all fiberglass hulls will be free from structural defects under normal use” for 10 years, and “the gelcoat below the waterline of all fiberglass hulls manufactured by it against premature weathering or deterioration” for five years.

The hull-deck joint is the same internal flange used on Hewson’s first boats. The deck is bonded to the flange with 3M 5200, and fastened with stainless steel bolts on 6″ centers.

The mast is stepped on the keel, and shrouds are attached to stainless steel deck chainplate fittings bedded in solid fiberglass and through-bolted to backing plates with 3/8″ bolts. Belowdecks, Navtec rod is attached to the lower section of the deckplate; its lower end is bolted to a 4″ wide stainless steel chainplate secured to the hull using 1/2″ bolts.


Spaces below decks have been completely rearranged and are more spacious and comfortable than on the earlier 36, a reflection of the additional interior volume. Headroom in the saloon is 6′ 4″.

The interior is accented by varnished cherry wood, a teak and holly sole and 4-1/2″ thick foam cushions upholstered with removable covers.

Sleeping arrangements provide privacy for four persons in two compartments. The forward cabin has a 78″ x 73″ V-berth, vanity sink, mirror and storage lockers. The aft stateroom has a 77″ x 60″ double berth.

The starboard settee converts to a double berth measuring 78″ x 55″, the single to port is 76″ x 26″, so it is possible to sleep seven adults.

The dining table, mounted on the forward bulkhead, provides seating for five. Storage is behind and below the settees and in cabinets.

The galley is L-shaped below the companionway and features a double stainless steel sink, two-burner CNG stove, ice box, dry locker and hot and cold pressure water. Additional stowage is outboard in cabinets.

If there’s an apparent compromise in favor of comfort versus utility, it’s between the large head and small nav station. The head is divided into two compartments, one 36″ wide for the sink and Raritan PH II toilet, the other 30″ wide for the shower. Hence, the nav station seat is the end of a settee, located just forward of the head, and faces aft without a backrest. There’s adequate room for a typical array of instruments (VHF, GPS, AM/FM stereo, radar, repeaters), shelving for books, two drawers and room for charts under the hinged lid.
