General Description

The 42 Salon Express: less noise, better fuel efficiency, and increased maneuverability. The Sabre Design Team understands that clients expect the same levels of personal luxury and comfort available to them in their homes and automobiles. The Sabre 42 Salon Express, which is also available in a Fly Bridge design, provides just that. Pod drives allow for precision control, while expert design makes for satisfying performance at remarkably low sound levels. Add to all of this her classic lines that never go out of style and it’s no wonder the Sabre 42 Salon Express is a customer favorite.  Her salon provides an elegant social space with the same 360-degree visibility available at the helm. Her galley is bright and naturally included in the social spaces due to her half-up layout. Below, the 42 Salon Express has a master stateroom forward featuring a comfortable island berth, and a conveniently designed head, while the second dinette converts to a double berth and pocket doors create a cozy guest cabin.
