Broker Remarks: MORE [ + ]

The 48 Sabre is the Top Dog of the high speed express cruiser. The “Almost Heaven” is the outcome of an overbuilt, super functional motor yacht with Traditional Maine construction. The topsides are focused to accommodate and entertain, while the bottom was built for speed and efficiency.

Stepping into the cockpit of the “Almost Heaven” you are met with a fully functional and well thought out layout. A large outdoor seating area, with a glossy wood grained table and electronic pull out shade, allows a comfortable outdoor lounging area. Strait forward is a charming open salon and helm. You will notice that the owner took the extra step, choosing an upgraded interior. The 360° window views, taking advantage of ample natural light, highlight the rich cherry finish of the woodwork. Walking down the companionway stairs the galley is to the left, featuring a large refrigerator, freezer, cooktop and striking gray swirl countertops. Directly to port is an oversized master stateroom and head featuring a walk around berth, plenty of storage and fantastic natural lighting. Forward is the VIP stateroom with a large queen berth and a luxurious display of cherry framework. Stepping back into the salon, the port-side chair electronically slides over revealing a separate utility/crew quarters with custom refrigeration and an extra large birth.

Worried about navigating around the docks? The helm’s Cummins joystick will make you a pro in a matter of minutes. Worried about rough weather? Turn the Seakeeper 5 Gyro on and eliminate the rock and roll! Whether you are cruising or anchored up, this nearly perfect 48’ will not disappoint.
