Vessel Walkthrough

Welcome Aboard! The Sabre 42 Salon Express is a wonderfully designed, beautiful cruising yacht, perfect for a family or couple. A large cockpit provides a natural gathering place, with plenty of comfortable seating and sweeping views. A removable table stows out of sight, when not in use. Moving forward and up two steps, you enter the salon and helm deck. An L-shaped settee (with storage) and an adjustable table provide a place to dine, enjoy a cocktail or simply socialize. To starboard is a straight settee and pop-up TV. 

Forward of the settees is the helm station, anchored by twin Stidd helm seats. The helm layout is functional and simple, for easy operation. A door to starboard allows for quick egress to the side deck. 

Forward and down a step is the mid-level galley. Bright and open to the windows of the helm deck, the galley is very efficiently laid out - easy to use, without taking up a large footprint. 

Down three steps and forward of the galley are the two staterooms and shared head. The owner's stateroom is forward, but unlike many similar layouts, the berth is low and easy to get into and out of. Plenty of lockers and storage options abound, and there is ensuite access to the head. The guest stateroom is to starboard, and features a double berth and storage. Access to the head is directly off the companionway. 

Outside, Sabre's hallmarks abound - sturdy handrails and wide side decks provide safe, comfortable passage forward. Anti-skid provides for even more comfort and security. The Sabre 42 Salon Express is a beautiful combination of form, functionality and performance.
