Sabre Yachts combined traditional styling with contemporary comfort in its Sabreline 38 Hardtop Express. A portside settee and table are on the main deck, as are two Stidd helm seats and a wet bar with a fridge and ice maker. Belowdecks are the portside galley, an L-shaped settee that can convert to a double berth, and a forepeak cabin that’s separated from the galley by a sliding door. Top speed is 32.3 knots, and cruising speed is 25 knots. As of November 2022, four 38 Hardtop Expresses were available, ranging from $316,168 to $439,000.
From the Archive
“From afar, the 38 Express shares styling characteristics with her bigger sister, the Sabreline 42 Express. Upon further inspection, however, you’ll notice the subtle tweaks and nip and tucks that naturally evolve in the design process. The transom corners have more of a radius, while the beam increases slightly from the waterline to the sheer. The forward cabin sweeps forward, transitioning in the deck seamlessly.”
