(SOLD) 2017 Sabre 54 Salon Express

The Only Sabre 54 Express in the Market

Turnkey and Available Immediately

IPS 950's, 450 hours

Updated Interior Layout

Just traded in on a Sabre 66, this two owner vessel has been expertly maintained and is turnkey for the new owner.  "By Design" boasts a midship master with a walk around berth, mid level galley to keep the chef in the action, VIP forward with ensuite, a bunk room and even a beautifully appointed day head.

The 54 hull has earned a reputation as an excellent performer as well.  She is fast and nimble, with a 30 knot cruise, but at 55,000 pounds, she handles big seas with ease.  

You will not be disappointed with the condition!  Call today to discuss.
