Manufacturer Provided Description
The Sabre 452 has been thought out down to the smallest detail with safety, comfort, and confidence at the forefront of every design and engineering decision. 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. 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 2 large, cedar-lined hanging locker. Ventilation and light are superb. A full length mirror graces the bulkhead. The head counter surfaces are of Corian and the sole is ceramic tile. The standard head is a Vacuflush unit with matching ceramic sink. There's even a convenient laundry hamper. The standard interior of the Sabre 452 is built of American Cherry, but both teak and Honduran Mahogany are available as options. The chart table has all the space needed for today's sophisticated electronics systems and ample space for paper charts and navigation tools. 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 (On Alliance it is only 110 shore power). Dry storage volumes are spacious, with one cupboard big enough for a lobster pot. Many hatches and ports 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 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 the beautiful furnishings and bright ideas is an abundance of storage space.
