2012 Sabre 48 Salon Express

Greenport, New York


The best-selling luxury yacht in her class, the Sabre 48 Salon Express joins classic Down East styling and modern technology in a cruising yacht of uncommon beauty and sophistication. An enclosed pilothouse with cherry joinery provides a weather protected environment for cruising or entertaining, and large salon windows provide panoramic views of the water.  Walk The Line is a well thought out, and very well-equipped Sabre 48 with several customizations that have been built into the standard build of later boats.  Some of the notable items are: 1000 hour service just completed including cooling system and genset. Engines are like new. Immaculate engine room.  Owner has taken exceptional care.  Example is all hose clamps are capped with plastic covers to minimize injury during work in engine room.  Never seen on other boats.  FLIR signal (High-resolution 640x480) feeds into the MFDs and TVS for full passenger participation in navigation and enjoyment.  Three staterooms (king, and two queen beds).  All mattresses have been replaced with high-end foam type perfect-sleepers with matching covers and pillows.  Boat has been professionally decorated. Upgraded transmissions. Spare parts for most replaceable items convey with boat. West Marine inflatable dinghy with LEHR propane engine available.  All teak swim platform and cockpit.  Excellent condition.  High-end FUSION sound system with rocket speakers on bow.  Cushions add to a great place to party.  Check out the Full Specs and call to schedule a viewing.

Manufacturer Provided Description

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 owner confidence. The all-new Sabre 48 Salon Express is our fifth pod driven model and she 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 is the quiet that one experiences at cruise speeds. Less than 75 Dba makes her 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 serves her helmsman and crew, well. The two cabin, two head layout is supplemented by a mechanical space forward of the engine room. Optionally, this space can be laid out as a crew quarters with berth and head unit.
