Manufacturer Provided Description

An Ideal Combination of Evolution and Revolution: The 48 Salon Express offers a traditional exterior profile that conceals its contemporary performance. It can cruise at 27 knots and, with full throttle, reach speeds of over 32 knots. The inclusion of pod drives and joystick controls provides owners with the confidence to easily dock even in challenging situations. Additionally, the boat produces remarkably low sound levels while underway, resulting in a more enjoyable cruising experience.

This 48 Salon Express features a standard layout of two cabins and two heads, with the additional crew quarters in the utility space forward of the engine room. The galley-down layout is designed specifically to include space and light, making food and drink preparation a pleasure. One unique feature of the Sabre 48 design is the athwartships orientation of the master berth and en-suite head, creating a spacious island queen bed with a flat cabin sole on all sides.
