In Motion: Sabre 48 Salon Express Guardian

A drone captures the classic Maine-built lines of the Sabre 48 Salon Express Guardian on a gorgeous summer day in Camden Harbor, Maine.


Guardian‘s electronic package was upgraded from the Sabre stock package to give you the very best in navigation, safety and entertainment.

  • Twin Garmin 8215 Touch Screen Multi-function Displays
  • Garmin 8000 Open array radar
  • Dual Garmin VHF
  • Ritchie Compass
  • Two Handheld Uniden VHF
  • Precision Pilot with Skyhook

  • Fusion stereo with multiple speakers and three zones



Entering from the aft deck through the glass bi-fold door, you notice how accommodating Guardian‘s salon is. You could easily entertain six or seven guest for drinks and snacks. Dinner around the gorgeous high-gloss cherry and birdseye maple table would be best with four, but you could slide in a fifth. You have 360-degree views, but blinds for all surrounding windows when you want your privacy.  Covers for the front three windows. You even have a large skylight for stargazing. Between the elegant runner, teak and holly sole, leather cushions, and all the satin varnished cherry, you will feel warm and at home. With the comforts of air conditioning, the Fusion stereo, and extra cushions you have no need to leave until you feel like cruising to a new harbor.


The galley is located just down the stairs from the helm station across from the owners’ cabin. Like the rest of the boat, there is light coming from everywhere. With the overhead hatch and opening ports, bringing in fresh air is a snap. The elegant runner keeps your feet stable on the teak and holly sole as you prepare cocktails or dinner.
