Custom Hull Doors for a Sabre 66

The creation of custom hull doors for a new Sabre 66 called upon the skills of several GIBY departments – fiberglass, paint/finish, carpentry, and metal fabrication. In the interest of time, the crew also teamed up with our friends at Cumberland Ironworks. The boat’s existing rails were carefully trimmed and capped, while John G worked in the GIBY metal shop to fabricate new sections of stainless rail for each new door. These were later painted, mounted, and aligned. The carpentry team made its contribution near the end of the job, reinstalling pieces of the original teak toe rail to recreate the effect of a continuous wood grain. The end result – a beautiful and easy boarding option for the owner and his guests, whether from the port or starboard side.
