(SOLD) 2009 Sabre 38 Express | $349,000

Elegant, traditional designs, luxurious accommodations and exceptional performance are the hallmarks of the Sabre 38 Express. Quiet, smooth and economical to operate the Sabre 38 will impress the most experienced yachtsman.

The helm deck is a careful study in ergonomics. Surrounded by large opening windows, overhead hatches and an electronically controlled center windshield, all providing maximum airflow and ventilation. Visibility from the helm and navigator seats are virtually unobstructed. Her Stidd helm and Navigator seats are the industry best, covered in Ultra leather, provide comfort and style.

To add to cruising comfort Sabre Yachts engineers have reduced noise and vibration levels with substantial ventilation and sound down insulation.

Wide side decks and large diameter 316 stainless handrails, standard rope chain windlass and highly polished aluminum hatched all add to the beauty and functionality of her deck. Large anchor rollers make anchoring a breeze.

Aft helm deck enclosure is updated using the best material with clear strataglass.

Below decks, her hand crafted cherry interior adds to the sense of luxury through out. The stateroom berth is low and wide, making both comfortable and easy to access.  A pocket door separates the salon and the stateroom, while head with stall shower has private access from the stateroom or salon.

The main salon is configured with a long L shape setter and her maple inlaid salon table converts to guest accommodations.  

Her gallery is well equipped and is easily accessible, equipped with electric cook top, convection micro wave oven and ample storage.

Companionway to and from the helm deck to salon is three easy step with secure safety grabs rails.
