SOLD | 2014 Sabre 38 Salon Express

(SOLD) 2014 Sabre 38 Salon Express

New to the market, this 2014 Sabre 38 Salon Express is clean, well equipped, and the service is up to date.  

Her classic profile, energetic performance, precise controls, and low sound levels make the Sabre 38 Salon Express an icon of nautically sensible design. Pod drives and joystick controls provide masterful control, secure handholds wherever they are needed lend security and comfort, and 360-degree sightlines at the helm allow for optimal awareness while underway. All of these features wrapped up in classic Downeast lines make the Sabre 38 Salon Express “a boat that boaters recognize.”

The interior of the Sabre 38 Salon Express is an open design which suits a day’s outing with friends as easily as it does a longer cruise. Below, her galley, lower lounge, and master berth benefit from abundant daylight while providing a luxurious oasis for owners and guests. The roomy and versatile cockpit is the perfect outdoor space to compliment her equally clever salon.
