COST

Listed below are the costs associated with getting our Sabre 34 ready for cruising.  I added links to Amazon.com just so you can see what most of the items I purchased are.  I purchased a lot from them, but eBay.com was where I saved most money.

We are also tracking our monthly budget now that we are out cruising.  To see our Cost of Cruising, click here.

 

 

Purchased 1989 Sabre 34 Targa from Henry Dejong of Holland Yacht Sale on 12/31/10

Sale price of $55500.
Sales tax of $3330
Total price “out the door” $58930

 

 

Maintenance and Upgrade Cost*
Does not include cost for items purchased at Homedepot or Lowes (sandpaper, brushes, paper towels etc…) I lost the receipts for those.

  1. Dear Matt and Jessica:

    I also recently purchased the same type of boat. I bought a 1990 Sabre MKII (Targa) for the Irish boat shop at the end of August this year (2010).

    I enjoyed seeing your website. It showed some ideas for repair projects.

  4. Thanks. I spend way too much time trying to find the lowest cost for each item…. If only I would spend as much effort at my real job, I wouldn’t have to worry about the cost :)

  5. Hey Matt. Great to see that you’re enjoying your new endeavor. You should be close to the St. Lawrence Seaway by now. If you have the time, take a trip up the Saguenay riverand watch the sea otters(at mouth) and further up the river, the buluga white whales. Quite a sight. Hope all is well and you have the time of your life.

  6. Jerry, we’re still not sure if we’ll list the costs of the grounding because since insurance covered it, it most if it wasn’t really coming out of our pockets and didn’t add to our cost of cruising. Still working on those few months though. :)

  8. Oh my goodness! I feel so lucky with my MacGreggor 21, hauling in at a whopping $1200 for the boat, (plus, plus, +++++!) I don’t think I’ll ever complain about “another $50″ after reading through Your tally. Your records inspire (and caution) us! Thank you so much for doing this publicly. Best of Luck to all of your further adventures!!!
