Sabre Motor Yachts 42 Salon Express Maine USA from builders of Back Cove Yachts

Price POA


This Sabre 42 is hull #139 and it is a superlative example of this highly-desirable model from the same folks that bring you Back Cove. Fully equipped, including the largest available power option, Volvo Penta 600 IPS, this downeast express cruiser offers unmatched performance, with quality and style that will be relevant for generations. As with all Sabre models, she is built to CE Category B, NMMA, ABYC and USCG Standards.

She has been immaculately maintained, and continuously updated since being commissioned and delivered new by us in Sydney for an experienced yachtsman late in 2017 without regard to cost. She has the best of everything. Built in Maine USA with bespoke custom quality craftsmanship and state of the art composite infusion techniques. She will run from Sydney Harbour to Palm Beach in quiet comfort with a cruise speed of 32 knots.

Seas the Moment has a comfortable and spacious cockpit with teak laid deck and side steps and additional seating that accommodates a large group comfortably. A custom awning with integrated LED lights provides exceptional shade cover and integrates seamlessly with the factory hardtop. Mirror polished stainless steel door frame and an easy step into the salon plus matching stainless frame opening windows facing the cockpit provide airflow and, as with all Sabre models, extraordinary visibility in all directions.

Teak and holly sole combine with beautiful cherry to create a timeless interior with large windows and ocean air interior blinds for privacy when desired. All interior furniture and bulkheads are structurally fused and bonded to the hull. This results in a vessel of unmatched structural rigidity and strength. Twin STIDD helm chairs wrapped in Ultra Leather with unmatched helm visibility and ease of movement are comfortable in all sea conditions. A side door allows for ease of access to her wide side decks with substantial hand holds always in easy reach. Joystick control and all navigation electronics are beautifully laid out and immediately at hand.

Her bright and airy spaces are enhanced by a full 6'5" headroom and her owners cabin and guest cabin are remarkably large and includes cedar lined handing lockers and abundant storage throughout. Her head is cleverly designed with two doors to function as an owners en suite, a day head and a guest head without compromising privacy. Fully air conditioned and abundant ventilation throughout the vessel. In addition, she features a diesel heater that is quiet and efficient and ducted across all interior cabins.

The mid level galley is open to the salon space for entertaining and features corian solid counter top and a deep stainless steel sink, two burner electric cooktop and convection oven. Abundant refrigeration and storage spaces further enhance the elegant practicality for which Sabre Yachts have been renown since 1970.

Ascetically, her teak toe rails have been finished with 12 coats of Awlwood exterior varnish and her contrasting non skid is tooled in and provides superb grip under foot in all conditions, with a distinctive look that speaks to her tradition and quality. On the hardtop, her radar mast, antennas and twin KVH domes have been painted in matching two pack Awlgrip befitting a vessel of her pedigree.

Seas the Moment is priced to sell and represents a unique opportunity to take delivery of a "turn key" pre owned Sabre 42 Salon Express today. She will suit the most fastidious buyer and is a must see for anyone seeking a high performance down east style vessel that will stand the test of time. If you're a buyer looking for a Palm Beach, Riviera, Hinckley, Maritimo, Grand banks, Alaska, Sunseeker, Princess or Chris-Craft then this is the ideal vessel for you.
