Models

SABRE 38 SALON EXPRESS

The Sabre 38 Salon Express represents the latest in design and naval architecture. Her exterior profile says “downeast” and she is built in the tradition of Maine boat building: elegant, strong, steady, reliable and seaworthy. Below her skin, technology is everywhere: from her resin infused laminates, to state of the art systems, to her pod propulsion drive train. Her hull lines are the latest thinking in vee-hulled motor yachts and are specifically designed for the installation of pods, offering increased fuel economy, quiet running and a pleasant dry ride. Pods lower noise by pushing out exhaust through the propeller stream and perhaps most importantly, allow confident boat handling when docking or maneuvering in tight spaces.

The interior of the Sabre 38 Salon Express is an open design that suits a day’s outing with friends as easily as it does a longer cruise. Her cockpit is raised to a level just 5 inches below the main salon so as to connect these two important social spaces, and the aft end of the house opens with a drop down window and a swing door.

In her main salon, a raised, U-shaped settee with fixed table comfortably seats six. The forward end of the settee can be oriented forward to provide a comfortable mate’s seat when underway. To starboard, aft of the standard Stidd helm seat, is a long cabinet housing an LED television and extensive storage compartments for the owner’s gear.

On the lower level are a master stateroom with island berth and an en-suite head with shower. A functional galley is located to port and within easy reach and sight of the main salon. Below the helm deck, to port, is the lower lounge, which can also convert to a second sleeping accommodation.

The master stateroom offers the comfort of a queen-sized island berth and an en- suite head compartment.

SABRE 42 SALON EXPRESS

Less noise, better fuel efficient, increased maneuverability…… many of the things that make a boating experience exceptional.

At Sabre, we consider our owners and potential owners to be valued members of the Sabre Design Team. The Sabre 42 is the result of our understanding that our clients want to enjoy the same levels of personal luxury and comfort that they now expect in their homes and in their automobiles. We have developed a new style, the Salon Express, available with or without a fly bridge, that allows owners to operate from the comfort of the yacht’s interior or from the openness of an optional fly bridge. Technology is advancing rapidly and our owners have come to expect that when there is a new technology available, Sabre will employ it in all new designs.

We have dramatically changed the way we build our yachts, as well as the way in which they are propelled. Traditional values such as elegant interiors, fine craftsmanship and great looks remain, as our owners have come to expect, but below the surface things are state-of-the-art.

SABRE 42 FLYBRIDGE SEDAN

All aspects and details of this magnificent yacht are executed with boat building skills passed down by generations of Maine craftsmen and women. By including in her design and systems the latest equipment and technology, Sabre Yachts has designed a superb cruising yacht. With the suggestions and opinions of many experienced owners, the Sabre Design Team found solutions and created features that greatly enhance the experience of cruising aboard the Sabre 54 Fly Bridge Sedan.

Her vee-hull, powered by Volvo Penta IPS II 950 engines and pods, offers smooth and powerful operation. The 54 Fly Bridge Sedan will cruise comfortably in the mid-20 knot range with very low sound levels of just 75 db. AC Electrical services aboard are provided by an Onan 13.5Kw generator and her DC systems are 24 volt.

Her interior accommodations are elegant and comfortable. Beautiful woodworking throughout the yacht, pleasing proportions, and unusual details such as maple inlays and Shoji screens in the owner’s cabin doors, create an atmosphere of luxury and warmth in the elegant Sabre 54 Fly Bridge Sedan.

SABRE 48 SALON EXPRESS

As an early adopter of pod drive systems, Sabre Yachts has a clear understanding of how these revolutionary drives can best be used to increase efficiency, maximize ease of operation and increase owner confidence. The Sabre 48 Salon Express is our fifth pod driven model and takes full advantage of this technology in both her performance and in her interior accommodation plan.

The 48’s traditional exterior profile belies the contemporary performances of her vee-hull. She cruises at 27 knots and, at wide-open throttle she’ll attain more than 32 knots. With the Zeus pod drive system, turns at speed are as exciting as they are in a fine sports car, but perhaps even more exhilarating are the low sound levels at cruise speed: with less than 75 Dba, the Sabre 48 is one of the quietest motoryachts available today. The joystick and Skyhook operations give every captain the confidence to dock her in the most difficult of circumstances.

Her raised cockpit sole brings together the social aspects of the cockpit and main salon, and the aft end of the house opens up fully to connect the spaces. Her main salon offers ample seating surfaces for entertaining or simply relaxing to read or enjoy the standard entertainment systems. While underway the raised settee to port of the Stidd helm chair is a perfect place for the crew to enjoy the ride. And when docking, a standard side deck door assists her helmsman and crew. The two-cabin, two-head layout is supplemented by a mechanical space forward of the engine room. As an option, this space can be laid out as a crew quarters with berth and head unit.

SABRE 45 SALON EXPRESS

For 2017, Sabre presents the 45 Salon Express.

True to form, Sabre Yachts has designed a boat with all the comfort and class of her traditional Downeast design, with modern precision control and advanced performance. A U-shaped settee transforms her cockpit into an elegant and livable space, equally suited to entertaining or enjoying some peace on the water. Her functional side decks, with handholds wherever they are needed, provide a previously unheard of level of security and comfort.

The Sabre 45 Salon Express offers two staterooms with two full heads and a salon that flows down two gentle steps to a bright half-up galley. Her unique proposition is the utility space located between the engine room and the guest stateroom. This space is reserved for the installation of optional accessories like washer/dryer units, additional freezers, or wine chillers. By creating this working space all storage areas within the vessel have been preserved, and her cruising accommodations feel like those of a much larger craft.

Offering a space for al fresco dining and entertainment, the fly bridge is a practical and elegant alternative to the successful Salon Express series from Sabre Yachts.

Views from the bridge are unparalleled. Views to the water in front of the yacht when underway and views of your surroundings when docking, are unrestricted.

66 DIRIGO

The largest and most luxurious Sabre motor yacht to date will make her debut in the summer of 2015. The Sabre 66 Dirigo is the first American built, downeast-style motor yacht of this size to be introduced to the market. She is, as Designer Kevin Burns states “the highest expression of Sabre yet.”

From her functional foredeck to her spacious and comfortable cockpit, she is every bit a Sabre. The best deck hardware, on-deck walking surfaces that are safe and secure, hand holds wherever they are needed, all speak to Sabre’s 45 year history of building boats for people who know boats, and know how they should be equipped.

Her interior is crafted by boat builders with decades of experience. Her systems are modern and functional and her performance as invigorating as boaters have come to expect from Sabre Yachts.
