(SOLD) 2014 Sabre 48 SE

Lovely example of the wildly popular Sabre 48 Salon Express. Sunshine offers a bright and cherry interior, a full equipment list and under 100 hours.

The owner spared no expense in building the boat.  She has all the big options including the power sunroof, full crew quarters, teak decking, Freedom Lift with tender and even a Sure Shade.  Arguably the most expensive Sabre 48 built to date.

Just hauled for the winter, but accessible for viewing.  Call with any questions.
