The Saracen Saber by boomerangmouth The Saracen Saber by boomerangmouth
My first deckplan commission! This was done for ~BaronSaber of his (heavily) modified YT-1300, The Saracen Saber.

I had a rough plan to work with on this, so the layout was already envisioned - I just made sure that it follows standard design elements featured in the stock YT-1300 to make for a more convincing deckplan. The kind Baron was very supportive all the way through the plan's creation, keying me into exactly what was required and why! I hope he enjoys it as much as I did making it!

How do they get the landspeeder out of the ship? It's bigger than the lift.

If you look carefully the lift actually spans the entire width of the cargo bay. The whole thing has been split into three panels so it didn't just look like a single metal sheet.

(btw; thanks for calling me out on these discrepancies - really helps me to get a better grasp on forgotten basics of ship design!)

From the design I have a hard time believing that is a YT-1300. I know this level of nitpicking cannon is irrelevant and annoying, but this ship bears far mor resemblance to either the 1000 or the 1930 models of the yt series. If it had a longer "neck" leading up to the cockpit it could be a yt-2000

YT-1300s have cockpits left, right, and center, going way back to the 1980s West End Star Wars RPG, and restated in the recent The Millennium Falcon Owner's Workshop Manual.…

Agreed it does look radically different from the stock YT-1300, but the beauty of the ship was that it was so eminently customisable, there's even a slew of pages in the owner's manual (nerdy I know) dedicated to the additional modules! I would disagree that it looked like a 1000 or a 1930 in anything other than the central cockpit and the fact it doesn't have the standard wide bar engine. For one thing the mandibles on the YT-1000 are far stubbier than the 1300. ;D

Just for further clarification, here's a bit from the old WEG Galaxy Guide 6 with the configuration on: echostation57.files.wordpress.…

(And don't get me started on the YT-2000, how it has so much cargo capacity when half the ship's a tube corridor I'll never know!)

Awesome ship. Few ships are quite so versatile as a YT-1300.
