This beautiful Nelson 42 was extensively refitted in 2018. The fit-out saw the redesign of the main salon to include extra seating, storage and a drinks fridge and cabinet. The aft deck was also redesigned to include a table, bench seating and Bimini. All the upholstery throughout has been redesigned and the galley has been fitted out with new fridges, cooker and plumbing.
Sabre Blue comprises an aft Owner’s suit with two ample size bunks and storage, together with an ensuite shower room. The forward guest suit has extensive storage, two double bunks and a shower room and lavatory. There is a galley with large dining table, which can convert to a double bunk. The main salon and the aft deck offer space for entertaining as well as controls and seating for navigating the vessel.
There is a dive platform with a new retractable swimming ladder.
New touch screen Raymarine E Series has been fitted and include an on deck repeater screen, AIS, Radar, depth, speed, Autohelm and VHF.
As well as the refit, Sabre Blue has been excellently maintained: sea cocks have been changed, where necessary; all overhead hatches have been replaced with Lewmar Ocean hatches; new isolator switches have been installed and batteries replaced with sealed batteries. The Inverter and charger were replaced in 2019. All four fuel tanks have been opened, emptied and cleaned and resealed with new gauge senders. All diesel fuel piping and valves replaced.
Sabre Blue has two Ford Sabre 250 engines in good running condition, each having done approximately 1,000 hours. The vessel was laid up for about six years which helps account for the low engine hours. During this period engines were initially winterised but run up regularly with change of oil and filters every year.
Both engines recently serviced and impellers changed. Antifouled 2019 with new anodes fitted.
New starter motor and alternators fitted for both engines and both engine wiring looms replaced.
Rubber dinghy and outboard are included.
Sabre Blue is a very well maintained vessel and is in excellent condition. She is a very comfortable boat and the onboard space has been designed to offer comfort and safety.
