General Description

This 2025 Sabre 48 Salon Express is currently on order with Bluewater Yacht Sales with an anticipated delivery date in the early Summer of 2024. This boat will feature a striking Sport Yacht White hull, which can be optionally painted to the owner's taste. It will be powered with the twin Volvo IPS-700 package, giving this boat a quick 33 knot top speed and a comfortable and efficient 29 knot cruise. Some of the notable options will include a Seakeeper 6, an electric sunroof, a stand-alone inverter, an icemaker, and a utility room with a washer and dryer. Please contact a Bluewater Sales Professional today for more information about this boat or any other Sabre Yachts models.

Manufacturer Description

The 48 Salon Express has a traditional exterior profile that belies her contemporary performance. She cruises at 27 knots and, and at wide open throttle, she’ll attain more than 32 knots. Pod drives and joystick controls give every owner-operator the confidence to dock her in the most difficult of circumstances, and remarkably low sound levels while underway allow for a more pleasant experience while cruising.

Featuring a standard configuration of two cabins and two heads, the 48 Salon Express is supplemented by a utility space forward of the engine room that can be laid out as additional crew quarters. Designed with our customers in mind, her galley-down layout doesn’t compromise on space and light, making food and drink preparation a pure pleasure. Unique to the Sabre 48 design, her master berth and en-suite head have an athwartships orientation, allowing for flat cabin sole on all side of the spacious island queen.
