Sea Rose Notes

Delivered to her original owners in northern Wisconsin in 2018, she is being offered for sale by her second, knowledgeable owners who purchased her late in 2023, coming up from a smaller Sabre! This stunning Sabre 48 Salon Express is not to be missed. She really is in amazing condition for her age, and has a lot of the options popular for comfortably cruising with family and friends. She has always been professionally maintained by personnel familiar with Sabre Yachts. A change of the owner's plans means that she is now being offered for sale to you.

Please be sure to view the details below for notes on all of her equipment. If you have any specific questions, please let us know!

Manufacturer Provided Description

As an early adopter of pod drive systems, Sabre Yachts has a clear understanding of how these revolutionary drives can best be used to increase efficiency, maximize ease of operation and owner confidence. The all-new Sabre 48 Salon Express is our fifth pod driven model and she takes full advantage of this technology in both her performance and in her interior accommodation plan.

The 48's traditional exterior profile belies the contemporary performances of her vee-hull. She cruises at 27 knots and at wide open throttle she'll attain more than 32 knots. With the Volvo IPS pod drive system, turns at speed are as exciting as they are in a fine sports car but perhaps even more exhilarating is the quiet that one experiences at cruise speeds. Less than 75 Dba makes her one of the quietest motoryachts available today. The joystick and Volvo DPS (Dynamic Positioning System) operations give every Captain the confidence to dock her in the most difficult of circumstances.

Her raised cockpit sole brings together the social aspects of the cockpit and main salon and the aft end of the house opens up fully to connect the spaces. Her main salon offers ample seating surfaces for entertaining or simply relaxing to read or enjoy the standard entertainment systems. While underway the raised settee to port of the twin Stidd helm chairs is a perfect place for the crew to enjoy the ride. And when docking, a standard side deck door serves her helmsman and crew well. The two cabin, two head layout is supplemented by the optional third cabin and third head space forward of the engine room.
