As an early adopter of pod drive systems, Sabre Yachts has a clear understanding of how these revolutionary drives can best be used to increase efficiency, maximize ease of operation and increase owner confidence. The Sabre 48 Salon Express is our fifth pod driven model and takes full advantage of this technology in both her performance and in her interior accommodation plan.

Features

Notes & Comments

The 48′s traditional exterior profile belies the contemporary performances of her vee-hull. She cruises at 27 knots and, at wide open throttle she’ll attain more than 32 knots. With the Zeus pod drive system, turns at speed are as exciting as they are in a fine sports car, but perhaps even more exhilarating are the low sound levels at cruise speed: with less than 75 Dba, the Sabre 48 is one of the quietest motoryachts available today. The joystick and Skyhook operations give every Captain the confidence to dock her in the most difficult of circumstances.

Her raised cockpit sole brings together the social aspects of the cockpit and main salon, and the aft end of the house opens up fully to connect the spaces. Her main salon offers ample seating surfaces for entertaining or simply relaxing to read or enjoy the standard entertainment systems. While underway the raised settee to port of the Stidd helm chair is a perfect place for the crew to enjoy the ride. And when docking, a standard side deck door assists her helmsman and crew. The two cabin, two head layout is supplemented by a mechanical space forward of the engine room. As an option, this space can be laid out as a crew quarters with berth and head unit.
