2017 Sabre Salon Express
The Sabre 38 Salon Express represents the latest in design and naval architecture. The exterior profile says downeast but is built in the tradition of Maine boat building: elegant, strong, steady, reliable and seaworthy. Technology is everywhere: from the resin infused laminates, to state of the art systems, to the pod propulsion drive train. The hull lines are the latest thinking in vee-hulled motor yachts and are specifically designed for the installation of pods, offering increased fuel economy, quiet running and a pleasant dry ride. Pods lower noise by pushing out exhaust through the propeller stream and perhaps most importantly, allow confident boat handling when docking or maneuvering in tight spaces.
The interior is an open design which suits a days outing with friends as easily as it does a longer cruise. The cockpit is raised to a level just 5 inches below the main salon so as to connect these two important social spaces while the aft end of the house opens with a drop down window and a swing door.
In the main salon, a raised, U-shaped settee with fixed table comfortably seats six. The forward end of the settee can be oriented forward to provide a comfortable mates seat when underway. To starboard, aft of the standard Stidd helm seat, is a long cabinet housing an LED television and extensive storage compartments for the owners gear.
The lower level features a master stateroom with an island berth and an en-suite head with shower. A functional galley is located to port within easy reach and sight of the main salon.
