We continue our journey to discover the most interesting American boats of the moment(click here to see them all). Today we see the new Sabre 58 Salon Express, a powerboat in which the vintage-flavored lines with that shape that has made Maine boats world famous.
After the Viking 58 Convertible we saw the
seven top boats of the moment at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

The defining element remains the design, which draws inspiration from the famous downeaster i.e., the typical work boats of Maine, with which it certainly does not clash. This is definitely not a “work vehicle,” but multiple philosophies come together on this vessel. The vintage-flavored charm is also combined with the most advanced construction techniques, starting with the infusion adopted to make the hull. Also new is the hull, designed to offer greater stability on the wave even at low speed regimes and whose shallow draft (1.45 meters) allows safe navigation even in areas characterized by shallow water.

The deck layout of the line’s new 19.43-meter line features a single open space with the galley positioned close to the cockpit. This solution allows you to organize and prepare lunches or dinners even while taking advantage of the aft outdoor environment. The sleeping area, on the lower deck, consists of three cabins, each with a dedicated bathroom and with the owner’s stateroom positioned on the mizzen.
Motorization of the Sabre 58 Salon Express
For propulsion, the choice fell on a pair of IPS2-950s from Volvo Penta. The data are interesting, as you can tell from the data sheet(Click here to see it). At the fast cruising speed of 26 knots, the boat has 337 nautical miles of range. When the boat sails at low speeds with the 3,028-liter fuel tank, the range also reaches more than 1,000 miles.
