Photos taken October 2023

Vienna‘s beauty is matched only by her mechanical reliability.

The Volvo engines/ pods setup have demonstrated superior performance and have quickly become, since their introduction 10 years ago, the choice for those who value pod performance and maneuverability. With approximately 1250 hours on her engines, well and regularly maintained and in wonderful condition, she is a joy to own and operate.

She has been lightly cruised by her current owners, between Florida, the Chesapeake and the upper East coast and maintained with an open check book.

She is possibly the best of her kind, new or used, thoroughly sea trialed and ready for extended cruising, currently available.

She has been operated strictly in accordance with protocols & serviced regularly.

Her Generator, Seakeeper, AC unit, Freezer and all equipment are all in top condition and the list of equipment includes everything a well fitted out vessel of this size needs.

Highlights Include:

  • Hard bottom inflatable center console dinghy with outboard
  • Full internet connectivity
  • Direct TV receiver
  • Sirius weather receiver
  • Engine room cameras
  • 4 television sets
  • Added freezer capacity
  • Diesel fired heating system

Steering System

Joystick Control Manufacturer Provided Description

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 mechanical space forward of the engine room. Optionally, this space can be laid out as a crew quarters with berth and head unit.
