Vessel Overview

The Cabo 40 Flybridge benefits from the uncanny ability of Cabo engineers to give a boat the ride of a much larger boat with the agility of a smaller vessel. Built on a hull designed by Michael Peters for the Cabo 40 Express, the 40 Flybridge is destined to be the fastest in the fleet of current sportfishermen in the 40-foot range.
As Cabo often says, quality is in the details and there is nearly an endless list of details that push the Cabo 40 ahead of the average sportfisherman. The locking pins securing the engine room ladder are triple the normal size. The instrument console can easily accommodate today's large screen electronics. The standard oil exchange system and all washdowns are fitted with quick disconnects. Raw-water intakes for the livewell and washdown have sea strainers. The custom made fiberglass fuel tank is glassed to the hull and deck. Shafts are 2" in diameter, the size usually found on 45' to 50' boats. The stove-top is recessed an inch so sliding pots won't end up on the galley sole. A crash pump fitted to the engine can evacuate up to 6,540 gph. Everywhere you look, above or below deck, you see detail, thought and flawless execution and soon you realize why Cabo has become the leading builder of offshore sportfishing boats in America.
