(SOLD) 2007 Sabre 52 Salon Express


Time To Play is a  nice example of the wildly successful Sabre 52 Salon Express. Her jaw dropping good looks are only rivaled by the unique and open layout inside. With the 52, Sabre took it's level of fit and finish, as well as interesting details, to a new level. She will cruise at 28 knots at sound levels to rival any boat on the market. Time to Play is equipped with bow and stern thrusters, dinghy lift system, full electronics, and she is very tastefully decorated. She is both priced well below replacement cost, and currently the most aggressive price on the market.  Add the thoughtful and functional updates in the salon, she is worth the look if you are in the market for a large salon express.
