CABO: A Good Choice Whether Hardtop or Express

When Brunswick acquired CABO in February of 2006, the already respected company came with its own identity, branding, and profile. While all CABO Yachts are now built in the same New Bern, North Carolina facility that has seen every convertible and motoryacht wearing the iconic Hatteras logo leave the plant since 1967, the two lines are kept separate with their own dedicated team of expert workers and forward thinking managers, many brought east from the Adelanto, California location.

Making the most of what has become known as the CABO statement; 'The future of sportfishing express design,' the CABO difference can be seen in its exciting and dynamic product line in both express (EX) and hard top express (HTX) boats.

Taking what they do best and improving on it is a large part of the CABO vision. Armed with this kind of foresight, the inevitable result is the 40 HTX and its big sister, the 44HTX, both available in EX models as well. 

With the classic lines of the proven Michael Peters designed hull in place, these models present a new, well-balanced profile. If your boating finds you in predictable weather locales, the open feeling of the EX might be for you. For those who prefer a hardtop with a fully protected, and air conditioned enclosure, the HTX is an owner's ticket to exciting CABO action while being able to deal with any adverse conditions that may pop up in their local waters. Among its many attributes, including mezzanine seating and an optional second stateroom, the 40 offers either traditional drives or a pair of Cummins QSC 8.3, 600HPM Zeus pod drives. The 44 features a standard two-stateroom layout with an option for either a three-stateroom or an open floor layout with single stateroom along with CABO's unique angler's room complete with custom rod racks and a display cabinet. For power, try one of three CAT powerplants from 715- to 1,150-hp or twin MAN R6-800CRM 800-hp engines.

No matter which of these fine boats fits your needs, rest assured your choice will get you out on the water in comfort and safety and allow you make the most of your boating experience. When aboard any of CABO's next generation of quality fishing machines, your angling horizons just got a bit closer. Now, getting those tight lines is up to you.
