Factory Descripton

Sabre Yachts Design Team first presented the Sabre 42 Hard Top Express to the boating public at the Miami International Boat Show and from that moment she has been one of the most sought after Sabre motor yachts

Her helm deck is a careful study in ergonomics, surrounded by large opening windows and overhead hatches for maximum ventilation and light Views for the helmsman and crew are virtually unobstructed The Stidd helm and mate?s chairs, covered in Ultraleather upholstery, provide a degree of comfort rarely found in competitors yachts To add to cruising comfort, our engineers have reduced noise and vibration levels with a careful study of engine room ventilation and insulation

Wide side decks with large diameter stainless steel hand rails, custom stainless steel portlights, line chocks and air intakes, a standard rope chain windlass and highly polished aluminum hatches all add to the beauty and functionality of her deck A double anchor roller makes anchoring work a breeze

Below decks her hand-crafted cherry interior adds to the sense of luxury, evident throughout The master stateroom berth is low and wide, making it both comfortable and easy to access The head with stall shower has private access from the stateroom and from the salon The main salon is configured with a long L-shaped settee and a custom, maple-inlaid salon table The guest stateroom to starboard is equipped with a pull out double berth, many drawers and lockers

Her galley is equipped with an electric cook top, convection microwave oven and offers ample storage for extended voyaging
