Sabre Yachts is working on a new three-stateroom 58 Salon Express that it plans to launch early next fall. The new Down East cruiser will be powered by Volvo IPS950 pod drives and is expected to top out at 31 knots and cruise at 27 knots.
The tooling is now underway. The hull mold will be delivered to the Sabre factory in Raymond, Maine, from the tooling shop in Rhode Island soon, with the deck tooling not far behind. When it’s completed, the Sabre 58 will be delivered in the water in Portland.
The new 58 is designed to replace the Sabre 54, and to fill the gap between the popular Sabre 48 (pictured above), with more than 130 delivered so far, and the flagship Sabre 66 Dirigo, which is virtually a custom build, with six launched so far. The Sabre fleet now starts at 38 feet, with a lineup of twin-diesel express and flybridge models with lots of hand-crafted American cherry wood in the interiors and clean, classic profiles that remain true to the company’s Maine origins.
Stay tuned for more details when we get them.
