Motor Yachts 2007 Sabre 42 Fly Bridge Sedan

Off Market since Nov 24th 2022

To see full description of this boat from the seller click on the Seller Description tab above.


The ELIXIR is a 2007 SABRE 42 Sedan Bridge as produced by SABRE YACHTS of South Casco, ME from 2001 through 2010. The marque was rebadged from "SABRELINE" to "SABRE" in early 2006 . She's powered by a pair of the Factory optional CUMMINS QSC 8.3M 500 HO 500 HP marine diesels that will give her a cruise speed of some 24 knots or better and a top end of approximately 30 knots.

The ELIXIR is a superbly-equipped and maintained example of this very desirable SABRE 42 Sedan Bridge model. She features the optional CUMMINS 500 HP diesels, the Flybridge option (and she does retain the lower steering station too), a custom Factory modification to the Flybridge and the extended Hardtop aft over the Cockpit to provide an enhanced deck area and a hydraulic tender lift! A review of the Listing will certainly reveal all the rest of the details that make the ELIXIR a remarkably good choice for clients who aspire to acquire one of the nicest "Downeast" style yachts produced by SABRE over the years.

The Owners of the ELIXIR have opted to sell her this Fall as they have ordered a new larger yacht to replace her and for a 2022 delivery. For more information regarding the ELIXIR and to make appointments for a viewing, contact her Listing Broker, Randy Altemus of Brewer Yacht Sales (Stamford, CT) at cell 203 512 0847 or by email at "raltemus(at)".
