Fiberglass hull and deck, partially cored with end grain balsa coring. The hull was refinished with Alexseal Flag Blue 2 part linear polyurethane finish with a custom boot-stripe in 2016. ( Alexseal is a very highly regarded fiberglass finish not as widely known as Awlgrip but has better gloss and color retention). In approximately 2013/14 the house and decks were refinished in Awlgrip with the side decks with Griptex in non-skid areas. Exterior woodwork is kept to an attractive teak cap rail, brow on the house and some other more minor pieces, enough to show she is in fact a yacht while keping the maintenance budget in check.
SERENDIPITY is one of the popular Sabre (originally referred to as Sabreline) 47s which has been extensively upgraded under current ownership with fresh Alexseal hull finish, Algrip finish on the house and new bimini, all new electronics and many other items. She is for sale only as her owner wishes to down size.
