MV “Osprey” was originally sold in South Carolina in 2011, making seasonal round trips from Charleston to Marcos Island, Florida.   This Awlgrip painted “Flag Blue” downeast motoryacht arrived in Seattle fall 2016 with 500hrs on her Cummins 380hp QSBs, and in exceptional condition.

In the six PNW cruising seasons that have followed, “Osprey” has been actively cruised, attending monthly Bellevue Yacht Club cruises about the Puget Sound, numerous trips to the San Juans, Victoria BC, Desolation Sound, Gulf Islands, the Broughtons, two visits to rugged Tofino, BC, a trip down the Washington coast to Westport, WA and a month long circumnavigation / exploration of Vancouver Island, bringing her hour meter to the current state of nearly 1350hrs.   

A proven near offshore and long distance express cruiser, not once has she left her owners “high and dry”.   Her owners are delivering her in that same ready mechanical condition so that her new owners may have that same experience.

Manufacturer Provided Description

At Sabre Yachts our goal has always been to fulfill the dreams and wishes of our boat owners by listening carefully to their requests and blending their ideas into exciting designs. We consider our owners and potential owners to be valued members of the Sabre Design Team. The Sabre 42 is the result of our observation that our clients want to enjoy the same levels of personal luxury and comfort that they have come to expect in their homes and in their automobiles. To that end we have developed a style of sedan, available with or without fly bridge, that permits boaters to operate from the comfort of the yacht’s interior or from the openness of an optional fly bridge. Technology is advancing rapidly and our owners have come to expect that if there is a new technology available, we will employ it in our designs. We have dramatically changed the way we build our yachts and the way in which they are propelled. Traditional values such as fine craftsmanship and great looks remain, as our owners have come to expect, but below the surface things are state-of-the-art.In our fiberglass shop we have changed infusion molding. It is greener in the sense that it uses considerably less resin and cleaner in that the emissions levels are much lower. It’s lighter because we use less resin and that allows the hull to run faster and use less fuel. Infusion differs from traditional hand lay-up in that all materials are loaded dry into the mold in a stack, the stack is then covered with a plastic bag and resin is infused into the stack. This creates a stronger part with higher glass to resin ratios. With Zeus Pod everything has changed and nothing remains the same. The smaller engines using vectored thrust propel the boat at higher speeds using less fuel. And when maneuvering in tight spaces a joy stick makes child’s play of docking.
