The Sabre 38 Express (originally called the Saberline 38 Express) combines classic Downeast styling and lively performance in a hardtop cruising yacht of exceptional beauty. Built on vacuum-bagged hull with a wide 13-foot, 8-inch beam and prop pockets, the focal point of the 38 Express is her semi-enclosed pilothouse with its swivel helm and companion seats, folding teak table, and full wet bar with refrigerator and ice maker. Stepping below, the handcrafted cherry interior of the 38 Express offers all the conveniences and amenities sophisticated cruisers demand, from a recessed entertainment center with flat-screen TV and DVD player to a beautiful inlaid dinette table crafted in cherry and bird’s-eye maple. A sliding door separates the master stateroom from the salon, and the compact but functional galley is positioned close to the companionway steps where it’s convenient to the helm deck. The hardtop has a pair of screened hatches for ventilation and the side windows slide open. The wide side decks of the Sabreline are notable.

  Footloose is an excellent example of a well cared for boat by an experienced owner. The next owner will be the beneficiary of all this attention.

Manufacturer Provided Description

Elegant, traditional designs, luxurious accommodations and excellent performance are the hallmarks of the Sabre 38 Express. Quiet and economical to operate, the Sabre 38 will impress the most experienced yachtsman. The helm deck is a careful study in ergonomics. Surrounded by large opening windows and overhead hatches for maximum ventilation and light. Views for the helmsman and crew are virtually unobstructed. The Stidd helm and mate's chairs, covered in Ultraleather upholstery, provide a degree of comfort rarely found in other boats. To add to cruising comfort, Sabre's engineers have reduced noise and vibration levels substantially with a careful study of engine room ventilation and insulation. Wide side decks with large diameter stainless steel hand rails, standard rope chain windlass and highly polished aluminum hatches all add to the beauty and functionality of her deck. A large anchor roller makes anchoring work a breeze. An optional hard back enclosure closes off the helm deck from the cockpit with the addition of two elegant curved windows in the corners, a sliding window to port and an aluminum entry door.Below decks her hand-crafted cherry interior adds to the sense of luxury, evident throughout. The stateroom berth is low and wide, making it both comfortable and easy to access. A pocket door separates the salon and stateroom while the head with stall shower has private access from the stateroom and from the salon. The main salon is configured with a long L-shaped settee and, her maple-inlaid salon table drops to form a guest berth. A standard thin screen TV and DVD player are recessed in to the furniture of the main cabin bulkhead. Her well equipped galley offers an electric cook top, convection microwave oven and coffee maker as well as ample storage for extended voyages.The Sabre 38 Hard Top Express is a yacht destined to become a classic for years to come.
