The KINSHIP is a good, sound lightly-used example of this SABRE YACHTS 38 Mk I cruising classic. She has just been launched commissioned and is now located at her Summer slip. At her level of equipage for cruising on Long Island Sound New England waters, as the Owners have done for the past 25 years, and given her overall condition, the KINSHIP is a great opportunity for the coming Season of 2022!
