Special T Yacht Description

“Special T” is a one-of-a-kind Sabre 48 SE that has been meticulously cared for since new and has an entire binder of every receipt to prove it.

Please review the comprehensive list of options from the factory, additions, and sizable upgrades. This Sabre 48 Salon Express is a rarity with literally every factory option selected, as well as some very rare custom options such as full factory prep for a Seakeeper stabilizer (pumps, plumbing, wiring, and Sabre Engineered structure are all installed), all you have to do is purchase the stabilizer unit and install it, the power scissor berth in the VIP, FreedomLift tender lift, and more.


The sellers had no intention of selling, which is why the comprehensive upgrades, but sadly due to an upcoming space restriction, (the boat is lift kept) they will not have adequate room to enter/exit their lift with this size boat. Therefore, the buyer of Special T will be purchasing a totally upgraded, serviced, and ready to run boat that needs nothing.
