Large Swim Platform with Freedom Lift

Furuno Nav-Net Electronics

Hull Awlgrip paint

Approx. 1000 engine hours

This boat has been maintained to the hilt with pride and joy showing through on every aspect. Priced well below the other 48s currently on the market.  

The cockpit has plenty of seating for you and your guests with a sun/rain shade for those hot sunny days or when a light rain falls. She is powered with Cummins QSC 550 hp motors coupled with pod technology.

She will cruise comfortably around 28 knots and top out about 34. The Sabre 48 Salon Express has been an extremely popular model since its inception in 2012 and still in production today with over 190 built. The layout of the 48 is very unique and inviting. Plenty of seating from salon to cockpit for entertaining.

If you are in the market for a Sabre 48 SE then this is the boat for you. The owners have moved to a new Sabre Yacht, having enjoyed several models and being spoiled by the great craftsmanship of this Maine built vessel.

Do not hesitate to call me directly to set up an appointment to see this extremely well taken care of yacht. She will be the next one to sell.

Why wait when you can be boating in weeks? Please call or email today to schedule your appointment to see this beautiful boat!

Layout Description

As you step through the stainless steel glass door to the salon you are immediately caught by its beautifully laid out floor plan. The sofas port and starboard, the jump seat, as well as the Captains and Mates Stidd helm chairs, are covered in plush Ultraleather. The cherry wood interior is bright and rich which is complimented by the teak and holly flooring. The helm is a captains dream come true. Everything is at your fingertips to monitor your routes, watch the radar and even the weather. Check out the extensive list of electronics below.

Down a few steps to port is a very spacious galley. Here you will find a full stand-up refrigerator and freezer, a convection microwave, a glass cook top, Corian counters and a large stainless steel sink. The storage is great for all your galley needs.

Just opposite to starboard is a full master suite. The king sized berth is athwartship with lockers on each side, port lights above, dresser style drawer storage, and Soji style doors. The en-suite head is spacious with a separate shower all highlighted with accent glass tiles on the walls.

Just forward of the galley is the day head and your VIP guest stateroom. This has a full queen sized berth with cedar lined hanging closets, and drawer storage abound.

One very unique space is located under the main salon. Your access is via a sliding settee on the port aft side of the salon. This space can have many uses. This boat had it designed into a utility area but you can do with it as you please. Add a mattress, a washer/dryer or just leave as it is.

The hull of this boat has been completely painted in a custom navy blue awlgrip then clear coated. This is a very hard, durable finish that only needs to be washed, not compounded, and will remain glossy and beautiful for years to come. The sport white decks are clean with the bone color nonskid that is complimented by the toast canvas.
