The Boat: ADAGIO
ADAGIO is a 1987 Sabre 42 that we bought in 1998. Previously we owned a 1988 Pearson 31 for eight years. A lot of thought went into the decision to buy this boat. Basically it all boiled down to a question of getting where we are going as safely and quickly as possible while keeping in mind that we ordinarily sail in shallow water. Specs for the boat.
|ADAGIO is equipped as one would expect for a
long coastal cruise with four people living aboard.
Lots of other web sites go into a lot of detail here, so I'll spare you. You can also find more about us and the boat with a click.
She is shown here in the shadow of Domino Sugar at Tidewater yacht Services in Baltimore.
|This is the layout for the 425 not our 42, but the boats are so similar that little violence is done by using this drawing.|
The stove has three burners and an oven. It uses CNG; less heat per unit of measure, but it is lighter than air so poses less risk of blowing us all up than does propane.
|The nav station
This is the heart of communications, electronics and navigation for the boat. We don't have an SSB radio, but do have a shortwave receiver.
|The aft cabin, or quarter berth. Christopher has staked this out as his teenager's lair.|
|The forward cabin, or v-berth. This is Dians' room. She shares it with a lot of gear.|
|The salon. The settee on the left, or port, folds out for our berth.|
ADAGIO is a centerboard boat.
