38' Sabre Salon Express


LETT GO is an original owner yacht that is in immaculate condition. She has a low 484 hours on her engines and she is barely broken in. Her exterior and interior and all of her soft goods are perfect. Simply put, she shows as new. She features the Volvo Dynamic Positioning System or "Sky Hook" option which will hold the yacht in your desired position on the water without the need to use an anchor.

The Sabre 38 is a Kevin Burns design, which combines traditional Down East styling and high-tech construction. The hull has a 24 degree dead-rise amidships, which tapers back to 17 degrees at the transom. The construction is a solid resin infusion with biaxial stringers bonded to a foam core which reduces weight. The result is a lighter, stronger boat that runs with smaller engines and has better fuel economy.

The twin Volvo Penta D4-300 hp IPS 400 pod drive train on LETT GO offers excellent fuel economy and superior performance. The pod drives also lower noise and fumes by discharging exhaust through the propeller stream. They make boat handling easy when docking or maneuvering in tight spaces.

Additional Descriptions

Onboard Accommodations

The onboard experience, both inside and out, is all about flow and open living. Transom doors on either side lead from the swim platform up into the cockpit, where there is a straight settee built into the transom and a shorter aft-facing settee to port. The two are separated by a high-gloss cherry wood table. In a stroke of genius, Sabre made this space modifiable, so the entire transom with the settee and the table can slide 14 inches aft over the swim platform, to open up the cockpit and make it easy to move around when at anchor. Everything also slides in to join the seating areas and create a nice aft-deck dinette.

The inviting flow of the cockpit continues as the outside joins the inside when the large aft electric window lowers and the bifold glass door to starboard opens, effectively creating an indoor/outdoor great room. The entire interior is finished in satin finished Cherry and the sole is teak and holly throughout. In the salon, a straight cabinet is to starboard and houses an LED TV on an electric lift. A U-shaped settee and a high-low pedestal table are to port. Another clever use of space is the backrest of the forward part of the settee, which swings aft and creates a small forward-facing L-shaped lounge where one or two people can curl up while carrying on a conversation with the helmsman. With large windows all around, there’s plenty of natural light, and passengers have a 360-degree view from anywhere in the salon, even when seated. The entire interior has the trademark Sabre satin-varnished cherry finish and dovetailed maple drawers, and it is subtly lit by LED lighting throughout.

To starboard is the helm station with a single Stidd chair, a 16-inch Stazo wood- trimmed wheel and a well-laid-out dash. The electronics configuration features a Garmin GPS Map 5212 Multifunction Display, a Garmin 5208 Multifunction Display, Raymarine Autopilot, a Volvo Penta color display for all engine functions, a Garmin GHS10 VHF Radio with separate speaker, and Volvo IPS electronic engine controls and a right-hand joystick. The ergonomics and visibility of the helm station are outstanding.

Three steps amidships lead down to the galley, which removes kitchen clutter from the social space but still leaves the cook connected to the conversation. The galley counters are finished in a beautiful Corian and a circular sink is tucked in the corner. There is a Kenyon electric cooktop, a microwave oven, two stainless steel refrigeration drawers and significant storage throughout.

Aft of the galley is an open L-shaped lounge that converts to a double bed for occasional guests or the kids. With the large optional fixed portlight, the area is surprisingly bright.

The master stateroom is forward, with a queen-size walk-around bed, a TV, a stereo and large drawers under the berth. It has direct access to the large single head with a Jabsco QuietFlush freshwater electric head, a tasteful vessel sink and a very spacious shower behind a glass door. The master cabin can be closed off for privacy, but it can also be part of the belowdecks flow, because the panel that houses the 26-inch LED TV between the galley and the stateroom also lowers on an electric lift to open the cabin. With the panel down, you can see from the bed through the salon and out to the transom settee.

Engine Room

The twin Volvo Penta D4 300 hp diesels with IPS 400 pod drives are accessed via a large hatch in the cockpit sole, so maintenance is easy. With the hatch open, there is a ladder to access the space and plenty of room to perform basic maintenance tasks or even more extensive work, with fresh air and plenty of light. The engine room space is finished in white gelcoat and the lighting is excellent. There are two 150-gallon roto-molded fuel tanks and a Kohler KW Generator in a sound shield enclosure. Because the tanks are translucent, they’re a great visual backup to the fuel gauges at the helm.
