Improve-it = Sabre 54 Salon Express

Sabre have re-designed the 54 Salon Express  with a number of unique features and design elements mostly involving the galley, the day head, but also a new engine choice. The 54 Saloon Express most important improvement comes from the galley highlighting the open interior layout with the half-way down position.  In this redesign the cabinet joinery details fine woodworking have also been tweaked to a higher standard.  Other new features of the galley are the upscale fixtures, the dishwasher and the sub-zero drawer refrigerators.  Another great feature of the 54 layout: the Day Head has received a tweak.  This space is well designed and yet extremely practical, the benefit of a day head is that it keeps traffic out of the staterooms which translates into the greatest level of privacy for owners and guests. Outboard surfaces of the day head are covered with solid cherry staving with Sabre’s signature hand rubbed finish.  It blends wonderfully with the cherry and stainless steel grab rail located under the counter.  There will be lots of light in this space with a full mirror bulkhead and full mirror door. Also worth noting is that the Sabre 54 will be one of the first production boats to be fitted with the Volvo IPS950 which should give a cruise speed in the high 20’s and a top end speed over 30 knots.
