The Sabre 42 Flybridge is the outcome of discussions with our clients and prospective clients. These conversations have led us to create a yacht which offers the same levels of personal luxury and comfort that they have come to expect in their homes and in their automobiles. We have developed a yacht with both lower and upper helms, that permits owners to operate from the comfort of the yacht’s interior or from the openness of her flybridge. Technology is advancing rapidly and our owners have come to expect that when there is a new technology available, Sabre will employ it in all new designs.

We have dramatically changed the way we build our yachts and the way in which they are propelled. Traditional values such as fine craftsmanship and great looks remain, as our owners have come to expect, but below the elegant surfaces, things are state-of-art. In our fiberglass shop we have changed to infusion molding. The process is greener in that it uses considerably less resin, and is cleaner in that the emissions levels are much lower. Less resin means less weight, allowing the hull to run faster and use less fuel. Infusion differs from traditional hand lay-up in that all materials are loaded dry into the mold in a stack, which is then covered with a plastic bag to allow the resin to be infused. This creates a stronger part with higher glass to resin ratios.

The Sabre 42 Flybridge uses Zeus pod drives. Smaller engines using vectored thrust propel the boat at higher speeds using less fuel. And when maneuvering in tight spaces a joy stick gives increased confidence to the operator.

Entering from the aft cockpit through a hinged door, the elegance of this Sedan's interior is immediately evident. Hand-crafted cherry joinery is everywhere you look, and the cabin soles are teak and holly throughout. Large windows on all four sides not only make the salon bright and airy but provide excellent exterior visibility. The Salon has an L-Shaped settee along the aft and port side also pulls out to convert to a double-berth, if additional sleeping capacity is needed. Facing the settee is a nice hi-lo, drop-leaf table. Forward of the settee is a cabinet with storage while the large top - perfect to use as a Chart Table. In the Salon's aft starboard corner is a comfortable chair. Forward of that is a built-in cherry angled cabinet with a concealed wine cooler/refrigerator. Further forward is the starboard side complete Helm Station with Helm Seat. A Starboard aluminum sliding door leads out to the side deck. Centerline forward, down a few steps is the portside, U-Shaped fully equipped Galley with 2-burner propane stove, double sink, microwave and plenty of storage. Forward of the Galley is the portside Head compartment. It is complete with dual access doors, stall shower with seat and bi-fold plexi-glass door, vanity with sink, opening portlight, overhead hatch and a Quiet-Flush toilet. Opposite the Galley to starboard is the Guest Cabin with lounge that pulls out to sleep two plus flips up to sleep a third person. There is a hanging locker, drawers, two opening ports, overhead hatch, and two French style doors that open this cabin to the Companionway and Galley. All the way forward is the private Owner's Stateroom with centerline island double berth. It has direct access to the Head, a large cedar-lined hanging locker, storage compartments, drawers, two opening ports and an overhead hatch.
