E Marine Australia will take delivery of the first Sabre 40 Sedan into Australia in 2011. This offshore-capable, downeast-style motor yacht boasts modern high-performance and a luxurious, handcrafted interior.
are built in the USA in the Maine tradition – a classic style and build tradition dating back 400 years. The classic style is blended with Sabre Yachts’ cutting-edge build methods, such as infusion hull construction and the application of ultra-modern technology like Zeus azipod drives and Skyhook positioning system.
Zeus pod-drive propulsion uses less horsepower than traditional shaft propulsion and is significantly quieter, directing engine exhaust out through the pods under water. Coupled with the Skyhook system, this is the most advanced propulsion and positioning system available for leisure craft and the Sabre 40 Sedan was designed to include this technology from the outset. (Skyhook links GPS data to the Zeus drives for automated position holding.)
Internally, the Sabre 40 Sedan is handcrafted with warm cherrywood bulkheads, teak floorboards and elegant upholstery. Accommodation comprises a large owners stateroom, double guest cabin and a large washroom with separate shower cubicle. The fully-equipped, electric galley is positioned between the cabins and saloon deck – part of the social area but below the line of vision when underway. Space saved through the use of Zeus drives allows for long-distance cruising additions such as a washing machine, watermaker or additional storage. A 9kW generator is fitted as standard.
The saloon deck is the main social area with seating around a drop-down table, built-in entertainment systems and all-round views through large upright windows. The solid, hand-crafted cherrywood interior is continued through here along with the solid teak flooring and ultra-leather upholstery. This area opens out to a large aft cockpit with seating and room for activities and is well ventilated with opening windows and overhead hatches.
The Sabre 40 Sedan has impressive offshore capabilities through a strong hull with a deep vee and flared bow. Capable of speeds in excess of 30kt, the Sabre 40 Sedan delivers both elegance and power in equal measure whether on a coastal passage or cruising inland waterways.
