The CABO Difference
CABO Yachts' success is a result of our undying commitment to superior design and construction. Our never-ending mission to utilize the best materials, engineering, layouts, and manufacturing techniques keeps us a leading choice among the world's top anglers and marine industry experts. These talented individuals recognize CABO's unmatched product and performance excellence, and the advantage our sportfishers present over the competition.
Anyone who has ever captained or fished a CABO can attest to our fast, dry and steady ride. Designed by Michael Peters, careful thought and consideration has been given to creating incredibly strong, high-performance hulls. CABO uses high-tech laminating processes to assure tremendous hull and topside deck strength, thus ensuring each vessel is truly seaworthy in calm seas or high squalls.
Impeccable fabrication and the use of some of the industry's best materials, guarantee a great ride that is not only beautiful when it comes off the line, but endures years down the road. The sides of her glossy hull reveal nothing but a stunningly smooth finish. The clean lines and tightly edged corners of the molded deck and cockpit give the CABO a look and feel unattainable by any other builder of vessels in this class.
Each engine room is an engineering sensation, providing a straightforward layout for CABO power systems. With plenty of room surrounding both engines, any system or component is easily accessed and maintained; meticulously organized by grouping major components, such as electrical and plumbing.
Completely finished in bright white gelcoat or linear polyurethane paint for easy cleanup, each engine room provides ample space for the installation of additional equipment. Strategic lighting (AC and DC) makes the job easier when maintenance is required.
Fuel lines are fire-retardant, braided stainless steel; and all wiring is marine-grade, tinned copper to resist corrosion. To prevent chafing, plumbing and wiring running through bulkheads are protected with polymer or high-grade solid rubber grommets. Engine rooms that are this organized and well-planned can only be the result of accomplished engineers and skilled designers.
Marine electricians individually build each electrical system. Fine craftsmanship delivers an unmatched level of quality to your CABO for enhanced reliability, ease of access and clarity of layout.
Closed, the main electrical panel displays all switched electrical systems. All components are clearly labeled and backlit for easy viewing and fingertip control. Open, the clarity of the layout becomes even more evident. Divided into AC and DC units, all wires run in parallel lines and are neatly bundled and labeled. Our electrical systems are just one more example of the great quality found aboard a CABO.
As soon as you step aboard a CABO, it is immediately apparent why our yachts are known around the globe for ultimate fishability. Careful planning and forethought go into the placement of every element in the cockpit -- especially essentials such as the bait tank, tackle center and rod storage. Insulated fishboxes are molded into the sole and equipped with in-line macerators. Full-length piano hinges and rubber gaskets allow for a tight seal, to keep your catch fresher longer. If you choose, fish boxes can also be equipped with optional refrigeration plates. Lures and rigging equipment are neatly organized in a custom-designed tackle center at the rigging station.
Storage throughout a CABO cockpit is abundant, leaving it clean and free of obstructions when reeling in a fish. To conserve space, the livewell is located in the transom and can be equipped with an optional window and lit for use at night. The transom door and top gate operate independently, providing safety for the angler and crew while bringing large fish aboard. Padded bolsters ring the cockpit coaming for comfort and security when using a stand-up rig. With an aluminum reinforcing plate installed in the deck for mounting a fighting chair, you'll be on your way to hauling in your tournament-winning fish.
The accommodations found aboard a CABO speak volumes to our continued commitment to excellence. Upon stepping into the main cabin, it is easy to understand why both customers and industry experts consistently give them a five-star rating.
To begin, teak is used throughout the boat. With its ultra high-density grain and natural oils, this beautiful hardwood resists damage from both sun and sea.
Each galley is beautifully equipped for creating any meal, at the end of a long day of fishing. Solid-surface counter tops, spacious cold storage, a twin-burner cook top, molded-in sink, and a microwave/convection oven make cooking aboard a CABO an enjoyable part of your days at sea. The teak cabinetry is not only attractive but abundant. Positive latch cabinet hardware prevent doors from opening in rough seas, while hinges keep doors ajar until you close them.
Staterooms combine warm woodwork with designer fabrics, creating a soothing, restful retreat. Hanging lockers are cedar-lined and additional storage beneath berths, under settees and behind bulkheads is easily accessed. Every inch onboard is a precious commodity, and no space is wasted.
Attention to Detail
As the saying goes, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link; therefore nothing is left to chance on a CABO. Using durable stainless-steel hardware, all rails, ladders, vents, cleats, rod holders, helm wheel and controls, among many other components, are designed and manufactured to adhere to CABO's strict standards of excellence.
While many view a transom door simply as a means of accessing the cockpit and manufacture it in just that manner, CABO Yachts does not. To go above and beyond, CABO uses a two-part mold, giving both the interior and the exterior a perfectly smooth gelcoat finish. Keeping the safety of the angler in mind, instead of using a single opening, a door and transom gate configuration is used. This allows the lower hatch to stay open while the top gate remains closed, leaving just enough room to haul in your tournament-winning catch. When it comes time to attach the door and top to the hull, standard hardware is not an option. Heavy-duty hinges are secured with flat-head, straight-slotted bolts that are offset for optimum holding and oriented to the same exact angle.
CABO incorporates only the finest materials and employs a unwavering attention to details that leave most of the industry trying to catch up.
