2009 Sabre 52 Salon Express

Hampton, Virginia


All the aspects and details of this magnificent yacht are executed with boat building skills passed down by generations of Maine craftsmen and women. 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 V-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 52 Salon Express will cruise comfortably in the mid-twenty knot range. AC Electrical services aboard are provided by twin 9kw 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 owner's cabin doors make one feel inside a stylish home on the water.


Yacht Registry is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Bluewater Yacht Sales.
