  • 3 Staterooms

"MARJOE 3" is an incredibly nice example of the popular Sabre 48' Salon Express that has been meticulously maintained by both of her knowledgeable owners. She offers the 3-stateroom, 3-head layout making her the ideal family boat. Her gorgeous hull was recently PAINTED (2022), and she offers the upgraded teak cockpit option. She is powered by low-hour (660 hours) Cummins QSC 8.3 550hp diesel engines coupled with fresh Zeus pods (less than 100 hours on the pods). She has OceanAire blinds throughout the salon area (including the windshield), the SureShade optional cockpit awning, additional exterior windshield cover, newer (2020) cockpit seating and table covers, Full GARMIN electronics package, TracVision Satellite TV system for all 4 TVs, ONAN 13.5kw diesel generator, and an added BOW THRUSTER in addition to the joystick controls for even easier docking. Purchased by her current owner in 2018, the following upgrades have been made since taking ownership:


-Heat exchangers and aftercoolers cleaned and serviced

-Installed new main engine water pipes

-Brightwork refinished

-Removed, recaulked, and reinstalled portlights

-Steering column replaced


-Port pod replaced

-Starboard pod rebuilt

-Hull Painted

-Bottom painted

-Starting batteries replaced

-Fresh water pump replaced


-SureShade replaced

-Generator starting battery replaced


-Cockpit seating canvas replaced

-Electric window controls (aft in salon) replaced

-OceanAire blinds installed on the inside of the windshield to match the rest of the salon windows

-Engine batteries replaced


-Ice maker replaced

-New washer and dryer installed in 3rd stateroom (crew quarters)

-DVD player added in salon


-Dockside water inlet installed

-Cockpit covers

-Rogue Reach internet booster installed

-TracVision added

The boat is in excellent condition and is very clean inside and out- including the engine room! She has been well-loved and lightly used, spending the majority of her life in the brackish waters of the Chester River on the Upper Chesapeake Bay. She is a "must-see" for anyone in the market for the popular Sabre 48' Salon Express.
