This Sabre was custom designed by the award-winning design team at Sabre Yachts with thoughtful input from this knowledgeable multi-Sabre Yacht owner and Boston Yacht Broker Scott Lucas.

What are you looking for? IF you want to boat a bit now and want time to personalize some interior decor or accessories before next season ( or leave her as is!) OR if you want to head south for the winter to explore or head to your homeport – don’t delay making this one yours! Read on to see why she’s worthy of your consideration.

Detailed thought and planning went into the layout of the helm, the electronics and TV systems, with each Stateroom being wired for the future. The boat has been equally cared for with all service work diligently overseen by this meticulous owner. 

The Sabre 48 offers an incredible layout for both entertaining or long cruises enjoyed by owners only or with special guests. This is a popular model due to the spacious cockpit, welcoming salon, helm set-up, a galley that provides all you need, and the design of the 3 staterooms.

The walk around spacious Master with en suite head brings privacy and plentiful storage. There’s a well planned distance between the Master and companionway to the VIP Stateroom that has a door to close whenever your VIP guests want spacious AND private access to the second head on this level. 

The optional crew quarters in the lower level, accessed from the salon, boasts a third head, shower, sleeping quarters for two with an attached, built-in seat and a full size Splendid Washer and Dryer. 

Moving this settee at any time also offers you easy reach of the salon table for group dining, cards, games or puzzles.  There are separate thermostats for AC/Heat in the Salon, Galley, Master and VIP Staterooms and the Lower Level Stateroom/Head/Washer Dryer Room. Comfort and usability was clearly planned throughout this yacht.

This yacht is definitely worth your consideration if you are looking for a quality Sabre 48 with one caring and knowledgeable prior owner.

She is easy to see just south of Boston, at the dock and ready to go wherever your heart desires.
