2015 Sabre 48 Express

Thomaston, Maine

$895,000

PRELIMINARY LISTING

It is time for a new caretaker of Guardian.  The owners have enjoyed cruising her from Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay up to Acadia National Park on the coast of Maine.  Limitation on travel for all of us this season has brought about a tough decision to place Guardian on the market.  She is well fitted out and properly cared for 2015 Sabre 48 Salon Express.  Her 500 hour engine service was completed at Lyman-Morse during the 2019-2020 storage season.  She is being launched and commission as I write this(July 29, 2020) and will be ready for showing very soon.

Design and Performance

As an early adopter of pod drive systems, Sabre Yachts has a clear understanding of how these revolutionary drives can best be used to increase efficiency, maximize ease of operation and owner confidence. The all-new Sabre 48 Salon Express is our fifth pod driven model and she takes full advantage of this technology in both her performance and in her interior accommodation plan.

The 48's traditional exterior profile belies the contemporary performances of her vee-hull. She cruises at 27 knots and at wide open throttle she'll attain more than 32 knots. With the Zeus pod drive system, turns at speed are as exciting as they are in a fine sports car but perhaps even more exhilarating is the quiet that one experiences at cruise speeds. Less than 75 Dba makes her one of the quietest motoryachts available today. The joystick and Skyhook operations give every Captain the confidence to dock her in the most difficult of circumstances.

Her raised cockpit sole brings together the social aspects of the cockpit and main salon and the aft end of the house opens up fully to connect the spaces. Her main salon offers ample seating surfaces for entertaining or simply relaxing to read or enjoy the standard entertainment systems. While underway the raised settee to port of the Stidd helm chair is a perfect place for the crew to enjoy the ride. And when docking, a standard side deck door serves her helmsman and crew, well. The two cabin, two head layout is supplemented by a living space forward of the engine room, accessed through the salon sole.
