2015 Sabre 48 Salon Express: ” At Ease” is an Ideal Combination of Evolution and Revolution that will turn head’s in any harbor. ” At Ease” is in excellent condition, maintained, cruised, and loved by experienced boaters. The pride of ownership is evident in every detail, and she will be a pleasure to show and a greater pleasure to own. Call listing broker for your private showing of this equisite yacht today!

The 48 Salon Express has a traditional exterior profile that belies her contemporary performance. She’s reported to cruise at 25 knot’s, and 28 knot’s at wide open throttle. Pod drives and joystick controls give the owner the confidence to dock her in the most difficult of circumstances, and remarkably low sound levels while underway allow for a more pleasant experience while cruising.

Featuring a standard configuration of two cabins and two heads, “At Ease” is supplemented by a utility space forward of the engine room that is laid out with a work station, refrigerator, freezer, washer, and dryer. Designed with long range cruising in mind, her galley-down layout doesn’t compromise on space and light, making food and drink preparation a pure pleasure. Unique to the Sabre 48 design, her master berth and en-suite head have an athwartships orientation, allowing for flat cabin sole on all side of the spacious island queen.
