Sabre – 45 Salon Express

Maryland, United States

ARIES is a well optioned, and exceptionally well-maintained Sabre 45 Salon Express. This three-owner vessel shows very well throughout aesthetically as well as from a systems standpoint. The current owners are experienced boaters and have lived aboard since June, testing and dialing-in all systems. Her unique Claret Red AwlGrip hull side makes her stand out and was the vessel used in all of Sabre 45 brochures and website for exterior photographs.

The Sabre 45 is Sabre’s quietest model yet and has all the comfort and class of a traditional Downeast design with modern precision control and advanced performance. ARIES is well outfitted and ready to cruise with options including, but not limited to – SeaKeeper, Sureshade retractable cockpit awning, teak cockpit decks, underwater lights, and a Freedom Lift for the 11ft AB RIB with 25hp Yamaha 4-stroke outboard.

A rare offering, at an attractive price, ARIES is sure to sell quickly.
