Sabre FTD

Sabre FTD

When you look at a Sabre FTD you tend to compare it to bargain boats and it is no bargain boat. You can undress this model with the Advantage Elite package and nothing falls short as it is a package for seasoned anglers. So much so that the earlier generation, 18’ hull, was preferred by Sam Rayburn legend, Robert Tucker, when he competed on big water going on to a pro level Top 100 victory at Lake Martin. As a first boat in your garage, you give up little with this rig. Team it up with one of the new four strokes and you have a ref that will outlast any payment plan you choose.

Bass Cat Bass Boat Sabre FTD Rockdale Boat MartThe Sabre FTD was brought out to enhance the market trend to smaller refs in a time we saw an economy beginning to wane. Many anglers have slipped back to this top end 18’ rig and 175 for their choice. All while they continue to fish and seek a lighter more easily maneuvered rig, which has fuel mileage matching their needs today with performance just behind that of the maxed-out Pantera II. This is not an inexpensive starter, though a boat with all the materials and construction techniques of the Jaguar in an 18’ package.
