2016 Sabre 48 Salon Express

St. Petersburg, Florida


Custom built by her VERY knowledgeable owners, the Delta V has custom features all over. As one of the owners is a professional decorator, you can see her custom touches throughout, from her custom boot stripes, high gloss anthracite countertops and exciting and unique fabric choices. 

Delta V just had her 1,000 hour service completed in April 2021. Her owners have a new Sabre 58 on order and are bringing her to Virginia in May. 

Well cared for her entire life, she will not disappoint. 


Florida Coast Yacht Sales is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Bluewater Yacht Sales.
