The Cabo 40 Express is a full on fishing machine with powerful lines and a class leading 100 square feet of cockpit space. A top tier vessel when she came out in 2003. Built on a modified- V hull with a wide 15′ 9″ beam and deep propeller pockets, the centre helm position of the 40 Express is one of her more notable features. It’s three steps up from the cockpit to the helm deck, where an L-shaped settee to port seats eight. Down the companionway is the saloon with the quality joinery and premium furnishings for which Cabo was known. The L-shaped sofa to starboard converts to upper / lower berths, and a full-service galley with an electric cooktop and Corian counters is to port, just forward of the large head compartment with a separate shower. A queen berth is in the private master stateroom. Standard features include a moulded bow pulpit, teak and holly cabin sole, recessed trim tabs, 180 litre transom live well, fresh / raw water washdowns, cockpit bolsters, insulated in deck fish boxes, bait prep centre, lockable rod storage, bait freezer, and transom door. Powered with dual 715HP Caterpillar C12 diesel shaft drive engines gives a cruise speed of 28 knots and wide open throttle to 34 knots approximately.
