General Details

Mad Dog is a well maintained Cabo 45 that is a rugged offshore fishing battlewagon. She is rigged for the big catch and finished with the elegance of a motor yacht. Cabo built fishing machines have long enjoyed the reputation of combining quality with performance. Certainly the 45 is a statement of that quality. Cat power…upgraded electronics…new enclosure…A/C at the helm. Owner kept an open checkbook to keep her in great shape. Her highlights include a huge bridge deck with centerline helm, spacious fishing equipped cockpit, with U shaped salon seating. Come have a look. You won’t be disappointed. Mad dog is a must see featuring a great price. Owner wants sold!



Vessel Walkthrough
Entering from the dock and onto the swim platform you enter the cockpit thru the transom door. The cockpit is quite large and features padded cockpit coaming, a centered fishing chair and forward storage lockers and bait freezer. The entry to the engine room is thru a doorway and down a stainless steel ladder. The engine room is well lit and ventilated and maneuverability and maintenance is a breeze. From the cockpit movement to the bow is simple with wide side decks with hand holds, stainless steel safety rails and stanchions. The bow deck is relatively flat and the bow windlass is controlled with foot and helm switches. You can maneuver around the entire boat using the wide side decks. Back to the cockpit and up one small step is the bridge deck with a large “L” shaped port side settee, with lockable rod storage, and to starboard is a tackle center.  The Stidd helm seat is centered and adjustable. The helm console is laid out well and the 360 degree visibility makes docking a breeze. The companionway door slides to starboard. Down the companionway three steps you enter the main cabin. Immediately to port and on the aft bulkhead is the electrical panel. The port side features a large “U” shaped leather settee with the ability to become a double berth.  The entertainment center is along the port side forward bulkhead and there is a high-low teak table. To starboard is the “L” shaped galley with Corian countertops, ample drawer and cabinet storage and cooking capabilities that will please the onboard chef. The interior flooring is gorgeous and has been updated with new teak and holly.  Forward of the main salon and to starboard is access into the head. The head also features private entry into the master. The head has a Vacu-Flush head, mirrored vanity, and a circular European style shower stall. All the way forward is the master cabin with a center-line queen berth and hanging lockers, storage drawers and outboard storage shelving. The designer interior also features opening hatches with retractable shades and removable screens, matching fabrics and shams, beautiful Amtico Flooring (used in new Hatteras and Cabo Yachts), and teak bulkheads and doors.  
Located in the main cabin to starboard, the galley is large and offers excellent counter top and storage space.
