Zephyr is a stunning example of the wildly successful Sabre 52 Salon Express. Her jaw dropping good looks are only rivaled by the unique and open layout inside. With the 52, Sabre took its level of fit and finish, as well as interesting details, to a new level. With her Caterpillar C-15 straight shafts, she cruises at 28 knots at sound levels to rival any boat on the market. Zephyr is equipped with bow and stern thrusters, Freedom dinghy lift system, full electronics, hi-def TracVision satellite receivers at 3 locations, and she is very tastefully decorated. She has two full heads, dual Sub-Zero drawer refrigeration and freezers, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. She is both priced well below replacement cost, and currently the only Sabre 52 on the market. She has been maintained at DiMillos on the Chesapeake, West and is ready to inspect on the West River near Annapolis, Maryland.
