The new Sabre 58 Salon Express is on its way to Florida!

Check out the all-new Sabre 58 Salon Express! This impressive new model and her delivery crew have quite the winter adventure ahead. Hull #5 left the factory in Raymond, Maine in balmy December and was launched in Portland, Maine for extensive sea trials with Sabre’s engineering team into early January. Our Down East Yachting crew showed up on the scene and completed Sabre Yacht’s first-ever virtual orientation with flying colors. Everyone is all bundled up and now making the chilly way south to warmer climes and this Sabre 58’s new home…our Down East Yachting Sales Office at the Jupiter Yacht Club in Sunny Florida!

Check out photos from Leg 1 of her journey from Portland, ME to Newport, RI and then onto New York City here. And don’t forget to follow her progress as she moves farther south!



Sabre 58SE in Portland, Maine!

Our crew’s first look at the Sabre 58SE in Portland, Maine and YES…that is SNOW ON THE PILOTHOUSE!

Portland’s harbor is pretty empty this time of year!

Captain Chip at the helm as we head out to the Gulf of Maine.

The nasty seas along the Maine coast tried to slow us down but our Sabre 58 was having none of it!

Safe and sound. Dusk at Newport Shipyard.

You know you have made it to NYC when you spy the Green Lady! Always impressive!

Selfie of the hearty DEY crew in front of the Big City and note that some of us have more layers than the others!

Thanks for the smooth ride and enjoy your view of the city throughout your weekend layover at Liberty Landing Marina. Rest up as Leg 2 of your journey south is coming up next!
