Sabre's introduction of the Sabreline 47 redefined the "downeast" style motoryacht. At one time, a "downeast motoryacht" described a modified version of a workboat converted for use as a private yacht. Designed for comfort in rough, offshore conditions, yet capable of smooth running at top speeds of over 20 knots, the modified deep-V hulls quickly gained popularity as they earned a reputation for reliability and seaworthiness. Side decks are wide and comfortable, and ball bearing mounted salon doors slide for and aft so as not to impede passage on the side decks. Above the walk-around deck are two additional surfaces: the aftermost is the sundeck and the other is the command bridge, with its matching helm seats, U-shaped settee and table, aft engine controls and instrumentation, and room for navigation electronics. The Sabreline 47 can be configured with a wide variety of interior options and finishes. A full head with VacuFlush, and a full galley are standard. A U-shaped settee is opposite the entertainment center with convenient access to the sundeck and bridge. The master stateroom is aft. It is large and luxurious with its own shower and head unit.
