The Sabre 54 Salon Express is the latest model in a the Sabre Hard Top Express series` that began with the Sabre 42 and continued with 34 and 38 foot hulls, each to rave reviews from the boating press and from owners alike.
The Sabre 54 proudly follows that tradition of style and technology, and the accolades have been exceptional. Features that experienced yacht owners expect to find in a fine motoryacht, power, smooth operation, comfort, quiet and efficiency, do not blend easily unless they are paramount concerns at every step from design mandate to build completion and sea trials. The Sabre 54 achieves these goals, and offers these features along with utmost safety and a strikingly handsome design.
In a world where luxury yachting has become synonymous with quiet whisper-like running, the Sabre 54 leads the way with sound levels that are amongst the quietest yachts in her class. Imagine cruising at 25 knots with noise levels so low (74 Decibels) that a normal conversation can easily be engaged.
The Sabre Design Team developed strict sound level and performance criteria, and worked closely with materials suppliers and large yacht technologies to achieve these exceptional results. First, we wanted the hull to be quiet, and chose vacuum bagged PVC foam core for light weight, strength and noise dampening characteristics. Next, we utilized Nida Core honeycomb coring, also an ideal material for sound deadening, for all deck structures, bulkheads and cabin soles.
The Sabre 54 Salon Express is equipped with Volvo Penta IPS900 engines and pods. Exhaust gasses are expelled through the foot of the pod dramatically reducing exhaust noise levels. And at higher cruise speeds, this innovative drive train system considerably improves fuel economy over straight shaft installations. Around the docks her joy stick allows maneuvering with a great degree of confidence.
Her standard IPS900 common rail, fuel injected engines are powerful and bring her on plane quickly. Once on plane, she is strong and powerful, efficiently throwing aside short chop or large waves without any sensation for her crew. Reliable and easy to understand electrical systems were also part of the strict design mandate for the Sabre 54. A 13.5Kw eQD series gen set is installed to provide AC power requirements when away from the dock and both bow and stern power cords are available when in port. Both cords lead to an automatic AC selector so no matter which cord is plugged in or which gen set is running, the system selector chooses the source without the need to specify which switches are on or off. This same ease of operation is found at the DC panels where just one switch opens all house battery circuits. All individual circuit breakers are found on the more complex panel in the engine room. Systems requiring 24 hour supply such as bilge pumps and audio equipment are excluded from the master switches.

The traditional downeast styling of the Sabre 54 is blended with modern appointments, and with light, airy, open and welcoming spaces. Entering through her full size stainless steel framed sliding door, one is immediately aware of the light and brightness of the salon. With large surrounding windows and an electrically controlled sunroof overhead, the sense of space is dramatic and convivial.
To port is a large and extremely comfortable U-shaped settee and a beautiful inlaid table with elegant high gloss finish. The use of webbing in the seat boxes convey the feel of a luxurious sofa. To starboard is an L-shaped cabinet containing a flat screen LED television on a lift and a standard surround sound audio system.
To port of the helm station is an elevated L-shaped settee where two or three crew members can gather in comfort. To starboard at the helm two standard Stidd helm seats each adjust to the perfect height for helmsperson and mate. Outboard of the helm is a weatherproof, hinged door allowing direct access to the side deck from the helm station.
P erhaps no space in this luxurious motor yacht is as striking as the master suite. Shoji style passageway pocket doors open to a large and welcoming stateroom. An early decision in the design process led us to locate the master cabin amidships, where wave noise and motion are at a minimum. A hull port allows light from the water to reflect into the cabin, where a queen-sized berth is surrounded by wood working details that can only be created by boat builders with exceptional skills. An inlaid head board, inlaid bed side table tops and another inlaid dresser top, all shine with a deep and rich varnish finish.
Lighting is extraordinary throughout with cool LED overhead lights all dimmable from switches at the head board. A flat screen LED television and DVD player are conveniently located on the aft side of the cedar-lined hanging locker. Drawers, a tall dresser and ample storage spaces are provided for the owner’s personal gear. The queen-sized berth lifts on an electronic ram to expose large storage spaces below for bulky items such as golf clubs. Another Shoji door leads to the master head with its designer glass sink, ceramic tiled floors and large shower stall.
This “coastline” galley has the features found in a custom home. Quartz countertops and a hull port light set off the style of this space. Two sets of drawer-style fridge/freezers will store all of the provisions required for an extended cruise. A built-in coffee maker, dishwasher and washer-drier round out the well thought-out list of standard features of a galley clearly intended for spending considerable time on board.
Unlike many yacht “down-galleys”, the Sabre 54 galley is bright and airy. Overhead, the large forward windscreens of the yacht shed light down into this space. The hull port light above the counter reflects light from the water outside and two large opening ports above the counter and an opening hatch overhead, provide volumes of fresh air to the space.
Forward, the guest stateroom is a large, welcoming and pleasant space. An island queen berth is placed low to the cabin sole for easy access. Several drawers and storage spaces are provided for all of your guests’ gear and personal belongings. A cedar lined hanging locker and storage lockers above the berth exhibit the same fine woodworking details for which Sabre’s craftsmen and women are so well known. This berth also lifts to open up large volume storage spaces below.
Guests will enjoy the comfort of a private head with stall shower, the luxury of solid surface countertops, and ceramic tiled flooring under foot. A fresh water flush head keeps salt water odors from the living spaces.
The exterior spaces of the Sabre 54 Salon Express are a boat owner’s dream. From stem to stern, every detail has been thought out with care. Hardware has been carefully chosen for quality and reliability, or custom built when not readily available. You will find the deck to be safe, secure, sea-worthy and comfortable to walk on.
At the bow, a custom anchor roller provides the tools required to easily launch and recover two anchors. Fresh and salt water wash downs are located there for cleaning the ground tackle. All are recessed into the foredeck so that debris from the anchor and chain can drain below deck rather than down the side deck.
Perimeter rails are heavy duty 316 stainless steel tubing, sized for maximum security. Hand rails are found at every point from the bow to the safety of the cockpit.
Underfoot an aggressive diamond anti slip pattern and a wooden toe rail makes footing safe and secure. Along the side deck and below the hard top overhang is a sturdy hand rail, and at the cockpit steps another easily reachable hand rail. The spacious cockpit allows the comfort of fore and aft facing seats with large lazarette storage spaces below. An outward-opening transom door leads to a large swim platform and an optional dinghy lift system is available for dinghy stowage.
Access to the engine room of the Sabre 54 Salon Express is through a wide opening created by raising the steps on centerline in the cockpit. This open, well insulated and well lit space permits easy access to all mechanical and electrical systems on board. Diamond pattern stainless steel flooring, white gelcoated surfaces and bright lights illuminate this space. Fuel polishing systems and dual Racor filters limit operational issues. Fuel tanks are located outboard of each engine and have sight gauges for added operator confidence.
Engines are sided so that all service points, remote panels and equipment such as starter motors are hung on the inside of each motor. To reduce heat and temperatures inside the yacht, a 24VDC ventilation system blows air through the engine room and exhausts it under the cockpit coamings.
The main DC electrical panel, a convenient tool box and all four air conditioning compressors are located forward of the engines.
The helm has been carefully and ergonomically designed, and offers the latest in equipment to make the operation of the Sabre 54 easy, responsive and precise. The Volvo Penta IPS joy stick and controls allow easy maneuvering after just a few hours of training. The navigational electronics panel is large enough to house two chart plotters, LCD screens as well as communication radios, control heads and other navigational and night vision equipment.
The history of Sabre Yachts goes back over 40 years to 1970–a short time in the history of boatbuilding in Maine, where ships were first built as early as 1607 on the shores of the Kennebec River. The traditions of Maine’s boatbuilding have survived through the centuries and Sabre Yachts is today one of Maine’s leading boat-builders with a worldwide reputation for style and quality.
Today’s Sabre motoryachts are built on modern vee-hulls and offer excellent performance, fuel efficiency and sea keeping characteristics. Our hulls are molded using the latest materials and techniques in resin infused, sandwich composite engineering. Foam cores are used to reduce weight and noise while increasing strength, stiffness and durability. Our internal furniture is “tabbed” to the hull’s inner skin and internal glass units are only used in head compartments. Tabbing creates an extremely strong structure by making every piece of furniture a structural part of the whole assembly.
On deck we select the best production hardware available, or when necessary, we design and have custom fabricated the parts that we need. Below the surface where copper wire is hidden with it’s plastic coating we use tinned wire products so as to virtually eliminate corrosion in the electrical system of the yacht.
The sum of all of these small details and decisions is a yacht of the highest quality which will be durable and will retain it’s value longer. We invite your comparisons and questions as they will give us the opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to creating the finest motor yachts available.
