Scott: 15 Years with Sabre Yachts

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Next in our anniversary series is Scott, who recently celebrated 15 years with Sabre Yachts. We recently featured Scott in a video on our YouTube channel as he walked us through the creation of his 2000th window frame, which should give our readers a sense of the time, effort, and attention to detail he has unfailingly shown over the last 15 years. Our deepest thanks go out to Scott – we’re both privileged and proud to work with him, and the many craftspeople like him who make up the heart and soul of Sabre Yachts.
