SIMPATICO is a beautiful example of the popular 48 Sabre Salon Express. From 2013 to 2020, SIMPATICO was kept exclusively in freshwater (the Great Lakes) and stored indoors for 6 months of the year. In 2020, the boat came to Florida with her second owner and was only used from November to March each year, then stored inside a climate-controlled facility for the rest of the time. Having been kept on a stringent maintenance regimen and only exposed to the environment for half her life, Simpatico shows much newer than her age.

Powered by twin Cummins QSC 8.3’s @ 550hp each, SIMPATICO cruises easily in the mid-20-knot range, topping out in the low 30’s. Pod drives and joystick control make her a breeze to maneuver in tight quarters, and she’s remarkably quiet underway.

SIMPATICO features a spacious midship master stateroom and forward VIP, both with en suite heads, and an optional third “Crew Cabin” forward of the engine room with a double bed, en suite head, washer/dryer, and additional storage. The down galley is spacious and fully equipped for cooking meals onboard, and it’s open to the helm and salon so food preparation can be done without feeling like you’ve been isolated from the rest of the boat.

You truly cannot find a better use of space in a 48-foot platform. SIMPATICO gives you the best of both worlds with the simplicity of a smaller vessel on the exterior, but a “big-boat” feel on the interior with all the comforts you’d want for long-distance cruising.
