Her design incorporates hundreds of innovative ideas and details, many gathered from discussions with some of Sabre’s 2,000 boat owners. Efficient and easy to understand plumbing, electrical and mechanical systems will minimize maintenance time and allow more sailing time, adding to your enjoyment of the Sabre 452.

Performance cruising has defined Sabre’s reputation for over 27 years. Our belief is that sailing should be fun, and if fun can be achieved by creating easy to sail designs which offer great performance, our owners will want to use their boats more frequently and sail them greater distances. While other yachts are motoring to their destination, you’ll be sailing; enjoying the wind, the peace, the quiet and the satisfaction that only a finely tuned design can offer the experienced sailor.

The Sabre 452 offers a two cabin layout, with the owner’s stateroom with head and stall shower forward. This luxurious stateroom offers a large island double berth, many convenient drawers and a large, cedar lined handing locker. Ventilation and light are superb. A full length mirror graces the bulkhead. The head counter surfaces are of Corian and the sole ceramic tile. The standard head is a Vacuflush unit with matching ceramic sink. There’s even a laundry hamper for your convenience.

The interior of the Sabre 452 is built of American Cherry and both Teak and Honduran Mahogany are available as options. Shown here is the interior of the standard boat with our optional, “extra-sumptuous” Ultraleather cushions. One magazine editor actually called them “sinful” but we like to think of them as simply making your home away from home as comfortable as you’ve always dreamed it should be. The chart table has all the space you will need for today’s sophisticated electronics systems and ample space for paper charts and your navigation tools.

Her galley is open and spacious. A full seven cubic feet of refrigerator space is accessible through two top lids and a front door. The front opening door even has recessed shelves, just like a domestic refrigerator. The microwave oven is powered by a standard 2500 Watt inverter. Dry storage volumes are spacious and we’ve even made one cupboard big enough for the lobster pot. So, if your plans call for long voyages, then this is a galley that you will enjoy

Her salon is open and airy, designed with many hatches and ports to fill the cabin with light and fresh breezes. The area to port will seat six adults in comfort while the starboard settee offers a clever fold-down table for light meals, a drink or a book. For your convenience and security Sabre provides a switch at the companionway which illuminates the courtesy lights and an overhead light at the chart table. A dimmer has been added to the overhead light circuit to add ambiance to this luxurious space. And behind all of these beautiful furnishings and bright ideas is an abundance of storage space; all you’ll need for those long cruises you’ve been planning.

The Sabre Design Team and Jim Taylor Yacht Design collaborated on the hull, underwater appendages and rig design of The Sabre 452. Our belief is that a boat which performs well is safer and better. The ability to sail away from inclement weather or to arrive before nightfall at your destination increases your confidence and your enjoyment of sailing. The Sabre 452 handles as easily as a much smaller boat. With the sails properly trimmed, you can virtually neutralize helm pressure. The owner of hull #2 called it “uncanny.” And if some club racing is your pleasure, then this state-of-the-art Jim Taylor design will show her transom to many of the boats in your fleet.

The deck of the Sabre 452, like all Sabre sailing yachts, has been developed with a keen eye for aesthetics and a full understanding of ergonomics. Sabre’s experienced Design Team knows just how a deck should be laid out for maximum safety and ease of handling. From the 3 inch high teak toe-rails, to her wide decks and safe, deep cockpit, the Sabre 452 will carry you wherever your sailing dreams desire.
