Wanda R. is a beautiful Sabre 42 Hardtop Express. No pods! Tried and true traditional shaft drive with Cummins power. The owners have taken a boat that was in great shape and made her even better. New electronics, new SidePower bow thruster, new bow thruster wiring harness, adding a new SidePower stern thruster, and a remote to operate both when you're on the boat or on the dock! Easy to single hand when necessary and super handy while grabbing lines. Low power, low heat LED lights throughout, newly upholstered Stidd helm chairs, all new cockpit cushions, even tuning the spare props to match the main prop performance! The list goes on and full details can be seen below in the Maintenance/Upgrades tab. Even the tender has seen a new canvas cover along with a new Torqeedo electric outboard as she rides on a fully tuned Freedom lift. With gleaming brightwork, shiny hull sides, clean decks and a spotless interior, this is the Sabre 42 you've been waiting to find. Everything is done. All she needs is you!
