Built in 1993, Second Star is a Sabre 362, designed by Jim Taylor and the Sabre Design Team, the 362 is the second generation of 36 foot sailboats built by Sabre Yachts. At 36 feet length overall and 12 feet on the beam she is comfortable size for a couple to sail and live on. With a wing keel, she draws under five feet, an asset for the shoal waters in the Bahamas and Florida Keys. Below decks she has three cabins, a forward double berth, a main saloon, and a rear quarter berth. The galley has a large refrigerator and a two burner propane stove and oven. She has a two compartment head with shower. The Sabre 362 won the 1994 Cruising World Boat of the Year award for a mid size cruiser.
Second Star was the seventh of 120 362s built over a 10 year period from 1993 to 2003. The first handful of 362s were initially placed in charter in the US Virgin Islands, having sailed there on their own bottoms. Noted sailor and author John Kretschmer was impressed with the 362s sailing ability during the delivery remarking about it in a review published in Sailing magazine.
