2004 Sabre 42 Salon Express

Hampton, Virginia


"Freestyle" is a lovely example of the ever popular 42 Sabre Express.  Built in Maine with timeless lines and phenomenal craftsmanship these boats are not only great looking but also fabulous running boats. "Freestyle" boasts features such as an air conditioned and heated helm deck, bow thruster, Furuno radar and plotters, autopilot, custom canvas and sparkling blue painted hull. Her two stateroom layout is quite inviting and the rich cherry woodwork adorned interior feels warm but light thanks to abundant port lights and overhead hatches. Kept on the lower Chesapeake Bay "Freestyle" is not a boat to be missed for any downeast buyer!

Helm Deck Area
The helm deck features two Stidd helm and companion chairs that are easily adjusted and swiveled around to socialize with friends and family.  The helm area is climate controlled with air conditioning and heat but also has large sliding windows, overhead hatches and a center opening windshield for plenty of breeze on those fair weather days.  The helm deck is fitted with a natural teak deck for superior traction and rich nautical feel.  To port there is a comfortable L-shaped Ultra-Leather upholstered settee with an inlaid pedestal table for seating and dining al fresco and opposite to starboard an additional built in seat.  An on deck wetbar with storage underneath is conveniently located on the helm deck as well.  The helm area has a rear canvas enclosure with zipper door and windows which can be easily removed or rolled for a more open air feel but allows for an extended boating season and protection from the elements when left down.
