General Details


Our 48 Sabre Salon Express is built with Cummins QSC 8.3 @ 550 hp Zeus Pods, a flag blue hull, cherry interior cabinetry, and with the crew quarters with head.  She provides a comfortable 30 knot cruise and will attain more than 34 knots at WOT.  Factory specs indicate that less than 75 Dba makes her very quiet while underway.

The raised cockpit brings together the social aspects of the salon and cockpit and the sliding salon doors allows you to make this one entertaining space.  This boat is built with two staterooms and two heads along with the optional crew stateroom and head in the utility room.
