“Besides the gorgeous lines of the Sabre and Back Cove model range, owners enjoy wide and safe passages from the cockpit to the bow and vision at the helm is nearly unobstructed for a full 360° view. “The rich teak and holly soles and handmade cabinetry are second to none and are truly yacht quality. All systems aboard every vessel are clearly marked and labeled for ease of servicing. Sabre and Back Cove have blended the lines of simplistic and high quality,” adds Hall. APPLIED EXPERIENCE Style and geography are only part of the Downeast story. The talented craftspeople at Sabre are highly skilled in their trade and take immense pride in their work. Many team members count their tenure by decades, not years, and have laid their hands on literally hundreds of semicustom hulls. Sabre’s motto, “Crafted in the Maine Tradition” not only embodies the styling of the boats, but of the high standards and impeccable finishes that go into every Sabre model. Sabre and Back Cove Yachts have become renowned for their classic Downeast design and industry-leading quality and finish. This strong reputation can be attributed to their craftspeople and associates and their unceasing demonstration of artistry, dedication, and workmanship that has propelled the brand into the global yachting market while staying true to their Downeast heritage. Although the use of the term Downeast in describing a yacht’s appearance has become commonplace in the twenty-first century, there are only a select fewwho can truly claim to be building a Downeast boat with this level of quality and passion. Hall sums it up well in saying, “Throughout our 54 years in business, Bluewater has always strived to carry the best built and most respected brands available. We could not have done any better than to team with Sabre and Back Cove Yachts.” SABRE 43 SALON EXPRESS LOA: 47’ 2” Beam: 14’ 2” Draft: 3’ 5” Fuel Capacity: 432 gal. Water Capacity: 150 gal.

FOLLOW THE BUILD: SABRE 43 Sabre’s latest design remains true to her Downeast heritage while offering the latest innovation and technology: the all-new 43 Salon Express will be a fully networked yacht. What does that mean exactly? It means the entire boat will be interconnected into the main multifunction displays (MFDs) at the helm, with an additional interface available via an iPad mini. Owners will be able to check critical functions and control any circuit on the boat, including the “mode of operation” or “scene,” which switches to preset modes for lighting and circuit configurations with the touch of a button. Sentinel Telematics is also available, allowing remote access to components, GPS monitoring, geofencing, trip logging, and alarm notifications. Highlights of the new 43 include a spacious salon, a half-up galley with modern kitchen amenities and plenty of storage, plus a flex space below deck for office or guest quarters and a utility room aft for storage and additional appliances. Her fit, finish and warm American cherry woodwork will all be iconic Sabre quality. You can follow along with the build via the Sabre blog and their social media channels as we anxiously await her debut at the Newport and Annapolis boat shows in the Fall of 2022. 28 BLUEWATER
