The Sabre 48 Salon Express is a pod driven model and takes full advantage of this technology in both her performance and in her interior accommodation plan.

The Sabre 48 cruises at 27 knots and, at wide open throttle, she'll attain more than 32 knots.  With the Zeus pod drive system, turns at speed are exciting, but perhaps even more exhilarating are the low sound levels at cruise speed. With less than Dba, the Sabre 48 is one of the quietest motoryachts available today.

Her raised cockpit sole brings together the social aspect of the cockpit and main salon, and the aft end of the house opens up fully to connect the spaces.  Her main salon offers ample seating surfaces for entertaining or simply relaxing to read or enjoy the standard entertainment systems.  While underway, the raised settee to port of the Stidd helm chair is a perfect place for the crew to enjoy the ride.

The two cabin, two head layout is supplemented by the optional crew quarters with berth and head unit.
