A new boat alternative - Delivered last August and with only 42 hrs it is sure to peak the interest of prospective DownEast buyers alike. A change in plans is the only reason she's come to market. The Sabre 38 Salon Express represents the latest in design and naval architecture. Her exterior profile still says "downeast" and she is built in the tradition of Maine boat building, strong, steady, reliable, and very seaworthy. Yet, below her skin, technology is everywhere; from her resin infused laminates, to state of the art systems, to her pod propulsion drive, Her hull lines are the latest thinking in vee-hulled motor yachts and are specifically designed for the installation of pods, allowing fuel economy, quiet running and a pleasant dry ride.
The pod drive train of the Sabre 38 offers excellent fuel economy, an important consideration in these days of uncertain diesel prices. Pods also lower noise by pushing out exhaust through the propeller stream and importantly allow confident boat handling when docking or meneuvering in tight spaces.
In her interior the Sabre 38 Salon Express provides an open design which will suit a day's outing with friends as easily as a longer cruise. Her cockpit is raised to a level just 5 inches below the main salon so as to connect these two important social spaces, and the aft end of the house opens with drop-down windows and a bi-fold door.
In her main salon, a large, U-shaped settee with fold over table will seat up to three couples, while the forward end of the settee can be oriented forward to provide a comfortable perch when underway. To starboard, aft of the Stidd helm seat, is a long cabinet housing an LED television on an electric lift storage and compartments for the owners gear.
The forward end of the salon opens to the galley below. Communication from the galley to the salon is fluid. A large owner's cabin forward has an island berth and ample storage for long range crusing as well as a private head with stall shower. Below the helm deck and to port, an L-settee converts to second sleeping quarters with privacy curtain.
