2018 Sabre 48 Fly Bridge Sedan

The fly bridge market, which retracted during the early days of the new millennium, has returned to take it’s rightful place amongst the many choices available to motor yacht buyers today. Offering a space for al fresco dining and entertainment, the fly bridge is a practical and elegant alternative to the successful Salon Express series from Sabre Yachts.

Views from the bridge are unparalleled. Views to the water in front of the yacht when underway and views of your surroundings when docking, are unrestricted. For those who enjoy the wind-in-the-hair feeling of a fly bridge, the Sabre 48 is an excellent choice.
