The Sabre 66 Dirigo is the first American built, downeast-style motor yacht of this size to be introduced to the market. She is, as Designer Kevin Burns states “the highest expression of Sabre yet.” From her functional foredeck to her spacious and comfortable cockpit, she is every bit a Sabre. The best deck hardware, on-deck walking surfaces that are safe and secure, hand holds wherever they are needed, all speak to Sabre’s 45 year history of building boats for people who know boats, and know how they should be equipped.
Her interior is crafted by boat builders with decades of experience. Her systems are modern and functional and her performance as invigorating as boaters have come to expect from Sabre Yachts. Her vee-hull with propeller pockets is sea-worthy and dry. As standard she is fitted with Caterpillar C15 865 hp electronic Acert engines, that are linked to Twin Disc Quick Shift transmissions for smooth and powerful operation. The 54 Salon Express will cruise comfortably in the mid-twenty knot range with incredibly low sound levels of 75 db. She is also available with Volvo IPS 900 engines and pods for those seeking the efficiency, convenience and close quarter’s handling capabilities of pod drive systems. AC Electrical services aboard are provided by two 9.0 Kw Onan generators and her DC system is 24 volt. Molded steps from the aft cockpit provide easy access to her functional and well lit mechanical room.
Her interior accommodations are another world of comfort and elegance. Beautiful woodworking throughout the yacht, pleasing proportions and unusual fine points such as maple inlays and Shoji screens in the owner’s cabin doors, all create an atmosphere of luxury and warmth in this masterpiece of the boat builders craft.
