This Sabre has been well maintained with great updates by the owners. She should be seen to be appreciated.

The minute you step into the cockpit you notice the great, flexible layout and new Sunbrella Upholstery 2020. There is plenty of room to entertain or fold up the aft cockpit seat, grab a rod from the holders and go fish. Or, have a larger space for your evening dance party. From the dinghy davit system, storage, hot/cold pull out shower and more, you won't lack a thing in this cockpit.

The flow to the helm deck connects the interior and exterior with the perfect entertainment bar to aft. You'll appreciate the counter space, sink, under counter storage and a new Nova Kool fridge/freezer in 2019.

The Helm deck offers a forward facing double seat with new Ultra Leather in 2019, STIDD Helm and Mate seats and a spacious floor plan with clear and easy access to the galley/cabin area.

The Captain will love this helm layout. The Garmin Radar, ChartPlotter and GPS were updated in 2018. Everyone benefits from the expansive views.

A few steps down from the helm deck is the perfect galley set up to port boasting Corian countertops, microwave, 2 burner cooktop, Tundra Fridge/Freezer, storage and Sabres famous cherry cabinetry. Everything is within easy reach.

Across from the galley starboard is a spacious dinette with new Ultra Suede Upholstery in 2020 that converts to sleep two with plenty of storage, cabinetry and TV. This is the perfect private space for people to be together to escape the sun, rain or to simply dine and relax in privacy.

The head has two access doors, Sandstone Corian countertop, separate shower with seat and electra flush toilets.

Forward is the perfect centerline tapered Queen Berth with storage below, hanging cedar lined locker, drawers, cabinetry, reading light and private access to the head.

Don't wait too long to read the complete specs and call to chat or make plans to see her. She won't last long in the current market.

Manufacturer Provided Description

Elegant, traditional designs, luxurious accommodations and excellent performance are the hallmarks of the Sabre 38 Express. Quiet and economical to operate, the Sabre 38 will impress the most experienced yachtsman. The helm deck is a careful study in ergonomics. Surrounded by large opening windows and overhead hatches for maximum ventilation and light. Views for the helmsman and crew are virtually unobstructed. The Stidd helm and mate's chairs, covered in Ultraleather upholstery, provide a degree of comfort rarely found in other boats.

To add to cruising comfort, Sabre's engineers have reduced noise and vibration levels substantially with a careful study of engine room ventilation and insulation. Wide side decks with large diameter stainless steel hand rails, standard rope chain windlass and highly polished aluminum hatches all add to the beauty and functionality of her deck.

A large anchor roller makes anchoring work a breeze. The enclosure closes off the helm deck from the cockpit. Below decks her hand-crafted cherry interior adds to the sense of luxury, evident throughout. The stateroom berth is low and wide, making it both comfortable and easy to access. A pocket door separates the salon and stateroom while the head with stall shower has private access from the stateroom and from the salon.

The main salon is configured with a long L-shaped settee and, her maple-inlaid salon table drops to form a guest berth. A standard thin screen TV and DVD player are recessed in to the furniture of the main cabin bulkhead. Her well equipped galley offers an electric cook top, convection microwave oven and coffee maker as well as ample storage for extended voyages. The Sabre 38 Hard Top Express is a yacht destined to become a classic for years to come.
