(SOLD) 1997 Sabre 47

Preliminary Listing - 1997 Sabre 47 Motoryacht

Destiny is a wonderful example of a well outfitted & well appointed Sabre 47 Aft Cabin MY. Her equipment list is generous and she has many upgrades over the past few years, including a new interior and exterior upholstery set.  The performance of the Sabre 47 is arguably the best in her class.  The accommodations, storage space and live-ability are unmatched.  Most will agree, the master cabin is the roomiest and most comfortable in her size range.

Destiny is currently indoors with a launch schedule coming up soon.  Additional photos will be uploaded once she is in-the-water.
