Her hull, deck and small composite parts are all built using Sabre Yacht’s VIP resin infusion process. This method of molding fiberglass parts is cleaner and greener: emissions of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are dramatically reduced making our work environment better for our associates and the air in which we live and boat, cleaner. The infused composite parts are stronger, provide better durability and vessel integrity and yet they are lighter which lowers fuel costs.

Her pod drive train is the latest in technology. Pods offer quieter operation, better fuel economy than straight shafts and an unequaled ease of handling around the docks. She can cruise at speeds up to 30 knots while sound levels at cruise aboard the Sabre 48 Salon Express are an incredible low 74 Dba. Even at her wide open throttle speed, sound levels do not exceed 75Dba.

Curtis Stokes & Associates is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Boston Yacht Sales. It is offered as a convenience by this broker/dealer to its clients and is not intended to convey direct representation of a particular vessel
