40-42 Salon Express
Length w/ Pulpit:
One of Sabres best-selling yachts, the Sabre 42 Salon Express (called the 40 Sedan in 200911) combines classic Downeast styling with state-of-the-art composite construction. Sabre was one of the first Downeast builders to take advantage of efficient pod drive technologya feature that has much to do with the enduring popularity of this yacht. With her large cockpit, enclosed pilothouse/salon, and spacious two-stateroom layout, the 42 Salon is the consummate cruising and entertaining yacht. The airy salon includes an L-shaped settee with inlaid table, side-by-side Stidd helm and companion seats, dinette, and a step-down galley open to the salon. The opening door at the helm is a nice touch. Forward of the galley is a full head/shower to port and a guest cabin/office to starboard. In the cockpit, a cantilevered cockpit table hides under the transom seat when not in use. Additional features include a cockpit wet bar, Sub Zero galley refrigeration, teak toe rails, and wide walkways around the pilothouse. Cummins 380hp diesels with Zeus pod drives cruise at 2425 knots. Later models with 500hp Yanmar diesels cruise in the high 20s. The Sabre 42 Flybridge Sedan is the same boat with a flybridge.
