Diane – 15 years with Sabre Yachts

Diane recently celebrated 15 yeas with Sabre Yachts, and in those years she has done just about everything. Currently Diane builds all berths for each Sabre model, including the new 45 berth that includes a new motorized lift in the lid. She’s also spent time working in lamination, gelcoat repair, and has even pitched in cleaning bathrooms when the need arose. We’re incredibly lucky to have dedicated team players like Diane here at Sabre Yachts, an we are so grateful for her time and her commitment.
