For the keen do-it-yourself type the SABRE is easily amateur built by the simple stitch plywood and fibreglass tape method. It is estimated that most amateurs can complete a SABRE in 40 man-hours. 

Full size templates and comprehensive building notes are available from the association to ensure ease of construction. Timber costs approximately $400 and current estimated all-up cost is $3500 home built.

Low maintenance all Fibreglass/Foam sandwich or Plywood/Fibreglass composite boats are available to varying degrees of completion from licensed builders. The standard and strength of these boats is excellent as well as being very competitive. Moulds are constructed under Association control and there are a number professional builders in Victoria and South Australia.

A boat registration number and a set of building/fitting out notes MUST be purchased from the Association prior to commencing construction. (Both Amateur and Professionally built boats). Following the building notes will ensure compliance and a Class 'A' Measurement Certificate which is mandatory for class championships.

Boat registration, Building/Fitting Out notes and Association Membership are available from :-

Barry Eastgate - National Secretary

Current cost is $90 which also includes the first year's full membership of the Association. Templates are available.
