All aspects and details of this magnificent yacht are executed with boat building skills passed down by generations in the Maine tradition. With the suggestions and opinions of many experienced yachtsmen, the Sabre Design Team found solutions and created features which greatly enhance the experience of cruising aboard this beautiful yacht.

Her vee-hull with propeller pockets is sea-worthy and dry. The 54 Salon Express will cruise with power and comfort in the mid-twenty knot range, with incredibly low sound levels of 75 db.

Throughout Commocean

To the cockpit through the transom door. Then well-positioned handrails lead to the secure side decks port and starboard. 

Enter the bright salon with plush settees — ample and comfortable for a small crowd. Helm located forward and to starboard with Stidd seats, all controls, and a door to the side decks.

Down a couple of steps from the salon to the linear galley along the port side, with excellent storage and work space. Further forward, down a couple more steps, the galley continues, then further forward to the accommodations area and the three cabin / three head layout. 

The master stateroom with private ensuite bathroom and shower is to starboard, and to port is the guest day head. Then forward is the private bunk cabin, and further forward is the VIP guest stateroom, with private head and shower.
