BROKER’S COMMENT: This is an exception Sabre 42 Hardtop Express. I acted for the owner when he purchased her and we shopped hard to get the best one available. She has the desirable Yanmar diesels; is absent the on-deck gel-coat crazing of some sister-ships; has many desirable features including a bow thruster, Hot Water heating system, 3 A/C units  and a Freedom Hydraulic Dingy Lift. She has been beautifully maintained by two very knowledgeable owners. The boat is set-up to be self-sufficient at anchor: LPG cooking, solar panels and additional l battery capacity all reflected in low generator hours.
