This anniversary series highlights Sabre Yachts’ crafts-people and associates as they reach seniority milestones, and is just one small way for us to give credit and thanks for all their hard work, time, and dedication. Our latest interview is with Trevor, who recently celebrated an impressive 10 years at Sabre Yachts. His down-to-earth practicality, combined with his acerbic wit, not only make Trevor a respected member of the Sabre Yachts team, but also a refreshingly insightful person to talk to, as demonstrated in the interview below. Thank you, Trevor, and congratulations from everyone here at Sabre Yachts.
