Vessel Walkthrough The Cabo 40 Express features the best of amenities such as a second helmchair on the starboard side of the command bridge and a comfortably-upholstered, forward-facing, L-shaped settee to port. Down the companionway to starboard of the helm station is the salon, which features the fine joinery, fabric and upholstery for which Cabo is so often noted. The genuine teak and holly sole is a nice touch, and the signature inlaid-teak grillwork on the cabinet doors assure good ventilation in the cabinetry. The saloon is laid out with a convertible L-shaped leather settee to starboard that turns easily into upper and lower berths, and a similarly-shaped, practically-configured Corian counter-topped full galley to port  just aft of the head compartment. The roomy head features a fully-enclosed shower stall, freshwater toilet, molded Corian surfaces, a tile floor and an excellent use of available space. Forward through a privacy door is the master stateroom, which features a pedestal queen berth with a very comfortable mattress, Sole flat screen TV, cedar-lined hanging lockers, plenty of functional drawers and the fine fabrics and upholstery finishes.

In every CABO fishability is both a focus and a critical component. To that end, the huge cockpit of this Express includes a bait prep center with a gas actuated spring supported lid covering the sink, a rigging board, an ice box with refrigeration plates and voluminous tackle storage. A 48 gallon circulating bait tank with a large drain is molded into the transom. Large capacity insulated fish boxes have gasketed positive latching lids with gas actuated spring supports, removable liners and macerator pumps on the drains are built into the cockpit sole. The padded cockpit coaming and CABO's precise non-skid deck pattern provide stability for the working angler. Gaff and tag stick holders are properly positioned under the gunwales and 5 rod holders are standard. Self bailing cockpit scuppers, a transom gate and outward opening tuna door fitted with CABO's beefy custom made hinges, and quick-disconnect fresh and saltwater washdown systems add to the utility of the cockpit fishing space. CABO includes an aluminum reinforcing plate molded in the cockpit deck for mounting a fighting chair, and there are functional step boxes in the forward port and starboard corners of the cockpit to allow easy access to the side and foredecks.

Since its inception, CABO Yachts has been widely recognized for their emphasis on superb engineering and engine room ergonomics as well as their meticulous wiring and mechanical layout.

ZF transmissions with trolling valves transfer engine power to the shafts. Attention to detail is clearly evident throughout the engine room, from the installation of the genset and easy to clean gelcoat finish throughout, to the rubber or polymer grommetted protectors found on any wire running through a bulkhead.

Fishing Equipment
As comfortable and well designed as the interior is for cruising, this boat was built to fish.  She is certainly large enough to head to the Canyons with the "big boats" (but burning less than half the fuel), yet small enough to manage single-handedly.  "Lady C" is rigged and ready to fish.  Some of her equipment includes: Full tuna tower with buggy top, electronics, and controls Rupp double spreader outriggers Center rigger Pompanette leaning post with rocket launcher Bait freezer Live bait well with plexiglass window Bait prep station Raw and fresh water wasdowns Transom door Two (2) large macerated fishboxes in cockpit sole Rod storage locker in cabin Radio Direction Finder- no more guessing where the bite is going off!!
