(SOLD) 1996 Sabreline Motoryacht

Don't miss out on this beautiful Sabre 43 Motoryacht, maintained and up-dated like no other on the market today. The Sabre 43 Motoryacht differs from the norm in that she's constructed on a modified-V hull which allows her to run efficiently at much higher speeds than you would expect from a trawler-style design. Performance aside, the 43 is a quality-built, double cabin cruiser with full walkaround decks and well-arranged accommodations. The floorplan offers a spacious galley, large V-berth stateroom forward with a private head and a walk-in, tiled shower stall. The master stateroom offers a full-size walkaround queen berth, ample drawer storage, hanging lockers and so much more. The master stateroom also offers a very large head with a tiled walk-in shower stall. Outside access is excellent: There are port & starboard deck doors entering the salon as well as a companionway door entering the aft-cabin top. Another door in the owner's stateroom provides direct access to the cockpit. The custom "Herreshoff" interior, with matched grain mahogany, is attractively finished with an abundance of fine craftsmanship from the proud folks at Sabre Yachts right here in Maine. Please call our office today for complete details and your own private showing. This Vessel wil not disapoint you.
