SOLD | 2004 Sabre 42 Hardtop Express

(SOLD) 2004 Sabre 42 Hardtop Express

New listing January 2014.   Extremely fresh example of the ever popular Sabre 42 Hardtop Express.  Recent Awlgrip, new varnish on both the exterior and the helm deck, and the right equipment should make this boat tops on your list for inspection.

Easy to see at our yard in Freeport, Maine, just minutes from the Portland Jetport.  

Take advantage of the location and cruise Maine for part of the summer.  We are a full service facility and can make the delivery and orientation process a delivery you won't forget.  Our marina is within walking distance of shops, restaurants and all provisioning and would make a great spot for a start to your summer season.
