Sabre 48 Flybridge Factory Description

Designed with our experienced and adventurous owners in mind, the Sabre 48 Fly Bridge is the perfect combination of the traditional Downeast style and the wind-in-your-hair freedom of a fly bridge. Nautically sensible design choices preserve the living space inside the pilothouse, meaning our owners do not have to compromise between their indoor and outdoor experience.

The Sabre 48 Fly Bridge offers unparalleled views, providing unrestricted sightlines while underway and clear views of your surroundings while docking. An endearing space for al fresco dining and entertainment, with the full power and control of a traditional helm including joystick controls, makes the 48 Fly Bridge a practical and elegant addition to our successful Salon Express series. The expertly designed stairs leading from the cockpit to the bridge provide security during ascent and descent with full steps and handholds everywhere they are needed.
