The Cabo 48 (called the Cabo 47 until 2003) is a top-tier flybridge yacht whose uncompromising design and quality construction place her in the leading ranks of mid-range sportfishing boats. Cabos have an enviable reputation for fit and finish and the 48 is a showcase of Cabos engineering excellence. Built on a modified-V hull with cored hullsides and a well-flared bow, the cockpit is hugelargest of any sportfishing boat in this classand comes with a full array of fishing amenities including an excellent bait prep center, in-deck fish boxes and a lighted 50-gallon transom livewell. The original galley-up, two-stateroom floorplan was arranged with the master stateroom forward, twin berths in the guest cabin, and separate stall showers in both heads. In 2003, a new three-stateroom floorplan relocated the master suite to port with the main guest cabin forward and a small guest stateroom to starboard. (Note that the 48, with its three-stateroom floorplan, has a slightly smaller cockpit than the original 47 model.) It would be difficult to find a better engineered engine compartment. Twin 800hp MANs cruise at 28 knots (3233 knots top), and optional 1150hp MANs reach over 30 knots.
Overview World-class flybridge fisherman (called Cabo 47 until 2003) is impressive blend of modern design, quality construction, leading-edge performance.
Features Two-stateroom interior of original Cabo 47 left space for a huge cockpit; three-stateroom, two-head layout of Cabo 48 has slightly smaller-but still massive-cockpit. State-of-the-art helm, teak-and-holly salon sole, meticulous engineroom.
Comments Fit and finish is as good as it gets.
