Sabre – 42 Salon Express

Florida, United States

ODISEA is a one, very meticulous owner, boat and she stands very tall! She boats low hours and is extremely well maintained both cosmetically and mechanically. This Sabre 42SE is perfect for extended cruising as well as day trips and entertaining. Versatile and popular dinette layout below easily converts to extra sleeping accommodations and the mid-level galley is spacious, open, and filled with natural daylight. Undoubtedly one of the nicest Sabre 42s on the market and a motivated seller means this vessel should be on your short list!
