Michael Peters was responsible for designing the 40 Cabo, the ride on second to none and is both softer and dryer than anything else in her class. She carries a wide beam 15’9”, shallow draft 3’5”, has a sharp entry and large flared bow. All this translates into an uncompromising ride in all sea conditions. She cruises easily at 28 kts burning 42 gallons per hour.
