Manufacturer Provided Description

The Sabre 42 has become the standard for performance cruising motor yachts. Her deep-vee hull offers cruising speeds from 20 to 27 knots depending on engine choice. With the largest engine option she can sip fuel at an economical 1.1 gallons per mile at 25 knots. Wide side decks with large diameter stainless steel hand rails, standard rope chain windlass and highly polished aluminum hatches all add to the beauty and functionality of her deck. A large double anchor roller makes anchoring work a breeze. Access to the bridge is safe and secure thanks to a well engineered set of steps with large diameter hand rails. The bridge deck with L-settee and table, and the captain and mate chairs, is the ideal place to pass your day on the water. This is the preferred standard galley-down which offers more space in the main salon with a large master stateroom forward and private access to the head with enclosed shower stall. The guest stateroom to starboard is equipped with a pull-out double with another single berth over. The guest stateroom is equipped with many drawers and a hanging locker. French doors enclose this luxurious space.


On her second owner, this Sabre 42 Sedan was a custom order for owner #1, always a New England boat she has been stored out of the water eight months of the year, all but one year in inside storage. She is only for sale as her current owners interests have shifted and they have used her only lightly the past two summers and they wish to downsize to a smaller vessel. 

Her recent survey described her condition as "near perfect" and little has changed the past two seasons.
