(SOLD) 2003 Sabre 47

Arguably, one of the finest 45'-50' down-east fast trawlers built, the Sabre 47 offers not only comfort but great performance in any conditions. Her accommodations are fabulous, the engineering & design of the Sabre 47 has created spacious comfort & gracious interior/exterior storage for those weekend getaways or those long-range cruising adventures. Many custom appointments are noticed throughout. She was built & outfitted with some of the best equipment in mind, maintained by the great service yards and cared for by wonderful owners (two owners to date). Her topsides are perfect, thanks to the new Awlgrip in late 2007 and she also has a new EZ2CY flybridge enclosure (new 2010). Her interior is very clean and she shows very well. Her performance & seaworthiness is unmatched in her class.

If you are considering a faster way of getting there and want the New England traditional design and style, we suggest you take a closer look at the Sabre 47.
