JOURNEY | Sabre 47 | 47ft


Newport, RI, US


JOURNEY is a great example of the Sabreline 47 series that was first introduced in 1996. The design redefined the Downeast styled motoryacht with a flat sheer, flared bow and a modified deep-V hull planning design to provide cruising speeds in excess of 20 knots at only 1900 rpm. On deck one can enjoy a raised flybridge with generous seating and great visibility, a convenient boat deck for easy tender storage and an aft cockpit area with private entry to owner’s cabin. Below decks, the raised salon area and lower helm is great for long term cruising with side doors for easy deck access when docking. And her spacious aft owner’s cabin and separate guest cabin forward add further to her many appealing design features. 

JOURNEY has been very well cared for with relatively low hours, and has benefitted from many recent upgrades as noted herein. She represents an outstanding value and is an ideal platform for one wishing to enjoy extended long distance cruising and passage making. New to market.

One enters the main salon via siding doors from each side or by stepping down through a double door from the raised boat deck aft. To starboard is an L-shaped settee and hi-low dining table with drop down leaves. Forward to starboard is the expansive lower helm station with built in helm bench (icemaker under), engine controls, nav instrumentation and electrical switch panels and monitoring systems. The helm chair backrest folds down to create additional counter space for entertaining. To port is an entertainment console with large Samsung Flat screen TV, Bose surround sound and Bluray system plus additional storage, and forward is a countertop opening down to the galley with an under counter freezer unit. The main salon space offers outstanding 360 deg visibility through full size windows in front, back and along the sides, with teak privacy blinds. Side and rear windows are opening.
