Sabre FTD (18’1″) ’23 Model Year

Small Footprint. Big Performance.

The Sabre FTD is a perfect example of good things coming in small packages. This model has everything to satisfy even seasoned anglers. A look at the 2021 SP Series will provide performance that fits most any budget. The SP (Special Package) is the choice for an angler seeking a quick and efficient tournament-ready rig. A common theme here is another efficient hull design. Just like other Bass Cat models the Sabre FTD excels at getting the most in terms of fuel economy and performance. From large lakes to skinny water this 18’ model makes a perfect fishing platform for the versatile angler. This one is not an inexpensive starter, it carries the same construction of the Jaguar, as only the *optional Vinyl Ester *AME 6001 resin is different. This boat carries multiple common strengths across the pride and retains them in a smaller footprint. You’re gonna’ love it in the SP Series.
