Sabre 34 Express Hard Top - Retired from production
The Sabre 34 Express is based upon the overall design of the highly popular Sabre 38 Express. What sets this boat apart is a much lower entry level price, a galley-up or down, and the ability to fit within a 40' slip. It is still very comfortable for the cruising couple and will appeal to our Northwest clients with the optional rear bulkhead which fully encloses the pilot house helm deck. Its beautiful lines and traditional good looks are timeless. It is a boat that you will be proud to own in any harbor. And, after all, its a Sabre! The quality, comfort, safety, and security to be found in this vessel is second to none. For a virtual tour from Sabre, click here.
Sabre 36 Sedan - Retired from production

The 36 Fly Bridge Sedan is finished in American Cherry. Her layout includes a private owners stateroom forward, a large head with circular shower enclosure and a full galley.

Sabre 38 Express Hard Top - Retired from production
The Sabre 38 Express is the perfect boat for the cruising couple who may have occasional overnight guests. Like the successful Sabre 42 Hard Top Express this new 38 footer is designed and built for comfort, whether underway or at rest. The helm deck is a careful study in ergonomics. Surrounded by large opening windows and overhead hatches for maximum ventilation and light. Views for the helmsman and crew are virtually unobstructed. The helm and mate's chairs, covered in Ultraleather upholstery, provide a degree of comfort rarely found in other boats. To add to cruising comfort, Sabre's engineers have reduced noise and vibration levels substantially with a careful study of engine room ventilation and insulation.
Below decks her hand-crafted cherry interior adds to the sense of luxury, evident throughout this fine yacht. The stateroom berth is low and wide, making it both comfortable and easy to access. A pocket door separates the salon and stateroom while the head with stall shower has private access from the stateroom and from the salon.
The main salon is configured with a long L-shaped settee and, our inlaid salon table which drops to form a second berth. A standard thin screen TV and DVD player are recessed in to the furniture of the main cabin bulkhead. Her well equipped galley offers an electric cook top, convection microwave oven and coffee maker along with plenty of storage for extended voyages.
The Sabre 38 Hardtop Express is a yacht that is recognized as a classic for years to come. For a virtual tour from Sabre, click here.
Sabre 38 Salon Express
The Sabre 38 Salon Express represents the latest in design and naval architecture. Her exterior profile still says "downeast" and she is built in the tradition of Maine boat building: beautiful, strong, steady, reliable and very seaworthy. Yet below her skin, technology is everywhere: from her resin infused laminates, to state of the art systems, to her pod propulsion drive. Her hull lines are the latest thinking in vee-hulled motor yachts and are specifically designed for the installation of pods, allowing fuel economy, quiet running and a pleasant dry ride.
The pod drive train of the Sabre 38 offers excellent fuel economy, an important consideration in these days of uncertain diesel prices. Pods also lower noise by pushing out exhaust through the propeller stream and importantly allow confident boat handling when docking or maneuvering in tight spaces.
In her interior the Sabre 38 Salon Express provides an open design which will suit a day's outing with friends as easily as a longer cruise. Her cockpit is raised to a level just 5 inches below the main salon so as to connect these two important social spaces, and the aft end of the house opens with drop down windows and a swing door.
In her main salon a large, U-shaped settee with fold over table will seat up to three couples, while the forward end of the settee can be oriented forward to provide a comfortable perch when underway. To starboard, aft of the Stidd helm seat, is a long cabinet housing an LED television on an electric lift and storage compartments for the owners gear.

The Sabre 42 Salon Express with Cummins Zeus Drives (with or without Flybridge)
The Sabre 40 follows the successful Sabre tradition of offering high performance, solid sea keeping and state-of-the-art construction along with classic down east styling and a clearly contemporary flair. The new model furthers Sabre's modern image by taking steps forward in improved performance, comfort and styling.
The standard twin Cummins QSB 380hp engines with CMD Zeus pod drives will deliver a new level of maneuverability around the dock and superior handling underway with a top full-load speed of 32 knots, and up to 35 knots with a light load. She will cruise all day in the mid 20's. This exciting new driveline also offers a compact arrangement, quieter operation and improved cruising range.
The exterior arrangement offers a large aft cockpit with plenty of comfortable seating, wide side decks leading to the bow, and the option for a flybridge with additional seating and a second helm station.
The interior has been arranged around a mid level galley, a first for Sabre, and is made possible by the compact arrangement of the pod drives. At only two steps down from the main salon the chef will be eye-to-eye with a guest on the settee, and will have full views through the large salon windows. The main salon features a helm station to starboard and a convertible "L" settee to port. Stereo, flat screen TV and bottle and glass storage with an optional ice-maker are incorporated into the starboard-side journey.
Please contact us for further information.

Sabre 47 Motoryacht - Retired from production
SABRE's introduction of the Sabre 47 in October 1996 redefined the "Downeast" style motoryacht. At one time, a "Downeast Motoryacht" described a modified version of a work boat, converted for use as a private yacht. These designs included many famous fishing trawler and lobster boat hulls. In the 1980s several Maine yards began redesigning the traditional downeaster. In the end, only a hint of the work boat lines remained. These new yachts looked more like pleasure craft versions of such famous military vessels as the World War II PT boats. Their flat shear lines and flaring bows introduced the handsome, conservative and rugged look which has now become the "Downeast Style." Designed for comfort in rough, offshore conditions, yet capable of smooth running at top speeds of over twenty knots, these modified deep-vee hulls quickly gained popularity as they earned a reputation for reliability and seaworthiness. This model is no longer in production, but check our brokerage listings. For a virtual tour from Sabre, click here.

Sabre 48 Salon Express with Cummins Zeus Drives
The Sabre 48 debuted in 2011 and in our opinion is the most impressive yacht that Sabre has built so far. The design team set out to improve on the best and that's just what they did. This elegant vessel features 2 private staterooms with island queen berths and ensuite heads; a spacious galley, salon, and cockpit; wide opening doors and windows; and space below for a utility room or optional crews quarters. In this yacht you will find both the fit and finish that set Sabres apart and cutting edge technology that offer quieter operation, better fuel economy than straight shafts, and unequalled ease of handling.

Sabre 54 Salon Express (with or without Flybridge)
All the aspects and details of this magnificent yacht are executed with boat building skills passed down by generations of Maine craftsmen. And by including in her design and systems the most modern 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 this beautiful yacht.
Her vee-hull with propeller pockets is sea-worthy and dry. Standard Caterpillar C15 fully electronic Acert engines, each capable of delivering 865 horsepower, 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 sound levels in the 73 db range. This one statement is a reflection of the quality and high tech engineering that you will find in this vessel. No other yacht in its class can boast such quiet sound levels. Electrical services aboard are provided by twin 9 KW 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 Shoji screens in the owners cabin doors make one feel inside a stylish home on the water.
