Manufacturer Provided Description

True to form, Sabre Yachts has designed a boat with all the comfort and class of her traditional Downeast design, with modern precision control and advanced performance. A U-shaped settee transforms her cockpit into an elegant and livable space, equally suited to entertaining or enjoying some peace on the water. Her functional side decks, with handholds wherever they are needed, provide a previously unheard of level of security and comfort. The Sabre 45 Salon Express offers two staterooms with two full heads and a salon that flows down two gentle steps to a bright half-up galley. Her unique proposition is the utility space located between the engine room and the guest stateroom. This space is reserved for the installation of optional accessories like washer/dryer units, additional freezers, or wine chillers. By creating this working space all storage areas within the vessel have been preserved, and her cruising accommodations feel like those of a much larger craft.
