Sabre 48 Salon Express
The Sabre 48 Salon Express is a great boat for cruising. Her contemporary, yet traditional, exterior gives her the look of a classic with the performance of a modern yacht with many of the bells and whistles that deliver style and ease to the new or seasoned boater alike. With a cruising speed between 27-32 knots, she will most certainly get you where you want to go in a hurry. But after spending time on her while underway, you may find yourself asking, “Why?” Why get from Point A to Point B in a hurry when the remarkably low sound levels that are characteristic of the Sabre 48 allows for a super pleasant experience while cruising (without all the annoying ringing in your ears following a long trip)?

Featuring two spacious cabins and two heads on board, the Sabre 48’s interior in no way compromises on space and light, giving the impression of being a much larger yacht. Her master berth and en suite head have an athwartships orientation, allowing for flat cabin sole on all sides of the spacious island queen bed – perfect for those who like to stretch out, not feel cramped, and who may have previously found sleeping on a boat difficult. Her galley is also spacious with plenty of counter space for food prep and presentation.Sabre 48 Salon Express Specs

The Sabre 48 is designed with a great utility space forward of the engine room that can be made into additional sleeping quarters, storage for extra food and drinks, or water toys. And if this isn’t reason enough for you to check her out, her pod drives and joystick controls will likely put you over the tipping point as they give every operator the confidence to dock her (even in the most difficult of circumstances). Learning the systems on a new boat can be challenging enough for the busy professional, but adding docking into the mix can keep you away entirely. The Sabre 48 makes it easy – and docking isn’t always easy. Learn more at Bellingham Yachts.
