2005 Sabre 38 Salon Express

Heathsville, Virginia


"Painkiller" is a fine example of the very popular Sabre 38' Salon Express.  She has low hours on her twin Yanmar 440hp diesel engines (1,178 total hours), and approximately 500 hours on her 9kw Onan generator.  She comes equipped with a full electronics package, bow thruster, new hem deck enclosure and windshield curtain (currently being made at the time of this writing), new cockpit seat cushion, twin STIDD chairs, teak cockpit covering boards, dorade boxes on her foredeck,  and so much more!  Her brightwork is in excellent condition, and is covered by canvas to protect it from the sun. Priced to sell, she is a must-see!
