Sabre 48 Salon Express wins “Best Downeast Boat”

Sabre Yachts, based in Raymond, Maine, has just returned from the 43rd Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show after quite an adventure with Hurricane Sandy.

The highlight of the show was the Sabre 48 Salon Express winning Active Interest Media’s (AIM) “Best Downeast Boat: 45-55 FT”. AIM publishes some of the country’s leading consumer enthusiast magazines, including Soundings, Power & Motor Yacht, Yachts International, and Passage Maker. The company also produces major in-water boat shows in Florida.

The Sabre 48 Salon Express, designed by Kevin Burns and the Sabre Design Team, has been a smashing success since it first launched in 2010. The Sabre 48 follows the highly successful 42 and 54 Salon Express models in Sabre’s motor yacht line.

She cruises at 27 knots and is one of the quietest motor yachts available today. 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. The two-cabin, two-head layout is fabulous for cruising with another couple or children. Her optional crew quarters created a big stir at the show.
