Comments & Broker’s Notes

Built to CECategory B, NMMA, ABYC,and USCG standards The versatile Hybrid Lounge accommodates a variety of needs. In the “berth” configuration, guests enjoy a spacious and comfortable overnight oasis. Meanwhile, in the standard “lounge” configuration, the lower-third of the berth converts into a convenient storage compartment hidden behind the aft-most backrest. Storage is an oft-noted need in vessels of this size, and the Sabre 43 delivers. A hatch in the salon sole provides access to the multipurpose Utility Space, which offers various supplemental storage and appliance options, including storage lockers, wine cooler, or even separate side-by-side washer and dryer units.
