The Sabre 38 Salon Express represents the cutting edge in design and naval architecture. Her exterior profile says “Downeast” and she is built in the tradition of Maine boat building: elegant, strong, steady, reliable and seaworthy. Below her skin, technology is everywhere: from her resin infused laminates, to state of the art systems, to her pod propulsion drive train. Her hull lines are the latest thinking in vee-hulled motor yachts and are specifically designed for the installation of pods, offering increased fuel economy, quiet running, and a pleasant dry ride. Pods lower noise by pushing out exhaust through the propeller stream and perhaps most importantly allow confident boat handling when docking or maneuvering in tight spaces.
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. Her cockpit is raised to a level just 5 inches below the main salon so as to connect these two important social spaces, and the aft end of the house opens with a drop down window and a swing door.
In her main salon, a raised, U-shaped settee with fixed table comfortably seats six. The forward end of the settee can be oriented forward to provide a comfortable mate’s seat when underway. To starboard, aft of the standard Stidd helm seat is a long cabinet housing an LED television and extensive storage compartments for the owner’s gear.
On the lower level are a master stateroom with island berth and an ensuite head with shower. The master stateroom offers the comfort of a queen-sized island berth and an en suite head compartment. A functional galley is located to port and within easy reach and sight of the main salon. Below the helm deck, to port, is the lower lounge which can also convert to a second sleeping accommodation.
