Manufacturers Description

The Sabre 42 Hardtop Express is a traditional Downeast styled performance cruiser that offers exceptional performance and luxurious comfort. A fully enclosed and climate controlled helm deck offers excellent sight lines and features Stidd chairs, L-shaped settee and a wet bar. A Full Hard enclosure aft with door opens out on to a large/lower aft cockpit with additional matching seating. The overall combined deck space is perfectly suited for entertaining or family cruising.

Fine craftsmanship and high quality is exhibited throughout the boat, but is especially evident upon inspection of the interior. The spacious accommodations include a 2-stateroom layout that is highlighted by a satin finished cherry woodwork and a teak and holly sole. The dinette is anchored by another L-shaped settee and the fully equipped galley features a Tundra refrigerator. 

State of the art construction techniques incorporate a vacuum-bagged PVC foam core to create a very high strength to weight ratio. The end result being one of the lightest yet strongest structures available. A deep-vee hull shape with prop pockets allows for a smooth ride even in the roughest conditions. In addition to her sea kindly motion while underway, the hull design is capable of powerful running speeds with a comfortable cruise speed of 26 knots and a top end of 32 knots.
