Boats built in Maine have a tradition of premium craftsmanship and classic American style, and the models produced by this Raymond-based yard are no exception. Sabre is quick to boast about the pride its craftsmen take in producing each semi-custom model. That pride is evident in the details, joinery and lovely lines of these Downeast-style boats that the company has dubbed “fast trawlers.”
Today, the motor yacht range consists of models from 38 to 54 feet in length, and configurations include Salon Express and Fly Bridge styles. In addition to exceptional engineering and detail work, the boats offer impressive performance, as each model cruises between 20 and 25 knots and offers a top-end speed of 30 knots plus. Sabre also manufacturers performance sailing yachts of medium displacement designed for blue water.
All aspects and details of this magnificent yacht are executed with boat building skills passed down by generations of Maine craftsmen and women. By including in her design and systems the latest equipment and technology, Sabre Yachts has created the ultimate cruising yacht. With the suggestions and opinions of many experienced yachtsmen, the Sabre Design Team found solutions and created features which greatly enhance the experience of cruising aboard this beautiful yacht.
Her vee-hull with propeller pockets is sea-worthy and dry. As standard she is fitted with Caterpillar C15 865 hp electronic Acert engines, that are linked to Twin Disc Quick Shift transmissions for smooth and powerful operation. The 54 Salon Express will cruise comfortably in the mid-twenty knot range with incredibly low sound levels of 75 db. She is also available with Volvo IPS 900 engines and pods for those seeking the efficiency, convenience and close quarter’s handling capabilities of pod drive systems. AC Electrical services aboard are provided by two 9.0 Kw Onan generators and her DC system is 24 volt. Molded steps from the aft cockpit provide easy access to her functional and well lit mechanical room.
Her interior accommodations are another world of comfort and elegance. Beautiful woodworking throughout the yacht, pleasing proportions and unusual fine points such as maple inlays and Shoji screens in the owner’s cabin doors, all create an atmosphere of luxury and warmth in this masterpiece of the boat builders craft.
