The 42 Salon Express experience is quiet, fuel efficient, and maneuverable. The Sabre 42 Salon Express has Pod drives that allow for precision control, while expert design makes for satisfying performance at remarkably low sound levels. Add to all of this her classic lines that never go out of style and it’s no wonder the Sabre 42 Salon Express is a customer favorite.  Her salon provides an elegant social space with the same 360-degree visibility available at the helm. Her galley is bright and naturally included in the social spaces due to her half-up layout. Below, the 42 Salon Express has a master stateroom forward featuring a comfortable island berth, and a conveniently designed head, while the second dinette converts to a double berth and pocket doors create a cozy guest cabin.

Manufacturer Provided Description

At Sabre Yachts our goal has always been to fulfill the dreams and wishes of our boat owners by listening carefully to their requests and blending their ideas into exciting designs. We consider our owners and potential owners to be valued members of the Sabre Design Team. The Sabre 42 is the result of our observation that our clients want to enjoy the same levels of personal luxury and comfort that they have come to expect in their homes and in their automobiles. To that end we have developed a style of sedan, available with or without fly bridge, that permits boaters to operate from the comfort of the yacht's interior or from the openness of an optional fly bridge. Technology is advancing rapidly and our owners have come to expect that if there is a new technology available, we will employ it in our designs. We have dramatically changed the way we build our yachts and the way in which they are propelled. Traditional values such as fine craftsmanship and great looks remain, as our owners have come to expect, but below the surface things are state-of-the-art.
