The Sabre 66 Dirigo debuted at Yachts Miami Beach on Collins Avenue.

Sabre Yachts debuted the new 66 Dirigo, the largest Sabre motoryacht to date, at the Feb. 11-15 Yachts Miami Beach show.

Designer Kevin Burns says the yacht is “the highest expression of Sabre yet.”

The company brought the 66 Dirigo and the 54 Fly Bridge to Yachts Miami Beach and had a second display at the Miami International Boat Show with the Sabre 38 and 48, as well as three Back Coves.

“No question in my mind Yachts Miami Beach is the right show for the 54 and 66, and the Miami International Boat Show is the right show for the smaller models from Sabre and for the Back Cove range,” sales and marketing vice president Bentley Collins said.
