Ct Spring Boat Show Essex, Ct (300 × 250 Px)

Join us at the 6th Annual CT Spring Boat Show at Safe Harbor Essex Island Marina April 29th- May 1st.

On display at the show, we will feature two exceptional listings:



The motor yacht ‘ZANNER’ is an original owner Sabre 42 FB Sedan which has been lightly used and meticulously maintained since new. She has seasonally cruised the waters of Long Island Sound and the adjacent islands delivering enjoyable trouble-free performance for her experienced owners.
The Sabre 42 FB offers a high level of personal luxury to the boating couple that occasionally has guests overnight. The forward cabin with island queen berth and en-suite head w/ separate stall shower provide comfortable accommodations for the owners plus family and guests are welcome on the convertible dinette. Outdoor space abounds with her generous cockpit and flybridge seating.
Air conditioning/heat, generator, optimized navigation electronics and satellite TV are just a few of the many features aboard to make you feel at home. Plus handling is a breeze with Joystick controls for effortless docking and close quarters maneuvering. The Skyhook feature holds the boat on any location and heading while preparing lines and fenders or waiting for a bridge.
Like all other Sabre Yachts, the 42’s handsome good looks are only surpassed by her performance and unmatched quality of construction. A must-see at the show!

With a sea-kindly hull that cruises economically in displacement speeds she is also capable of 30+ knots when necessary. She was built to CE Class B standards which makes her sturdy and seaworthy*.

This model is fitted with twin Volvo Penta I/Os, equipped with a galley up configuration that includes an Isotherm refrigerator, beautiful teak decks and swim platform, custom varnished aft deck seating with navy cushions with rich red piping, a bow thruster, Raymarine electronics suite that includes a digital radar, updated Fusion stereo, amp and speakers, an autopilot, electric windlass a low hour Fischer Panda generator for those quiet overnight anchorages.  In addition, she is fitted with two complete canvas packages that keep her enclosed while at the dock or when on a mooring.

She is a one owner boat and her Bristol condition reflects the care she has been shown by her owner.

*CE CLASS B yachts are designed to travel off the coast (200 miles or less) in which the winds can be up to force 8 or 37-43 mph (not to exceed) and waves can reach a height up to 4 meters or 13.12 feet (not to exceed). This makes the Nimbus a very sturdy, sea worthy vessel.
