2014 Sabre 42 Salon Express

South Norwalk, Connecticut



The 42 Salon Express: less noise, better fuel efficiency, and increased maneuverability. The Sabre Design Team understands that clients expect the same levels of personal luxury and comfort available to them in their homes and automobiles. The Sabre 42 Salon Express, which is also available in a Fly Bridge design, provides just that. Pod drives allow for precision control, while expert design makes for satisfying performance at remarkably low sound levels. Add to all of this her classic lines that never go out of style and it’s no wonder the Sabre 42 Salon Express is a customer favorite.  Her salon provides an elegant social space with the same 360-degree visibility available at the helm. Her galley is bright and naturally included in the social spaces due to her half-up layout. Below, the 42 Salon Express has a master stateroom forward featuring a comfortable island berth, and a conveniently designed head, while the second dinette converts to a double berth and pocket doors create a cozy guest cabin.

Manufacturer Provided Description

At Sabre Yachts our goal has always been to fulfill the dreams and wishes of our boat owners by listening carefully to their requests and blending their ideas into exciting designs. We consider our owners and potential owners to be valued members of the Sabre Design Team. The Sabre 42 is the result of our observation that our clients want to enjoy the same levels of personal luxury and comfort that they have come to expect in their homes and in their automobiles. To that end we have developed a style of sedan, available with or without fly bridge, that permits boaters 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 if there is a new technology available, we will employ it in our designs. We have dramatically changed the way we build our yachts and the way in which they are propelled. Traditional values such as fine craftsmanship and great looks remain, as our owners have come to expect, but below the surface things are state-of-the-art.In our fiberglass shop we have changed infusion molding. It is greener in the sense that it uses considerably less resin and cleaner in that the emissions levels are much lower. It's lighter because we use less resin and that allows the hull to run faster and use less fuel. Infusion differs from traditional hand lay-up in that all materials are loaded dry into the mold in a stack, the stack is then covered with a plastic bag and resin is infused into the stack. This creates a stronger part with higher glass to resin ratios. With Zeus Pod everything has changed and nothing remains the same. The smaller engines using vectored thrust propel the boat at higher speeds using less fuel. And when maneuvering in tight spaces a joy stick makes child's play of docking.
