"I magine the perfect express sportfisher. She must be fast – fast enough to be first at the grounds and make the most of an early bite. To be fast, she must be strong – well built and powered with high performance diesel engines in order to sustain high speeds over long distances and be comfortable for passengers and crew. The hull design must be guided by the hands of naval architects with a history of highly successful designs and an eye for heart-stopping lines. The sportfisher must be a CABO 40 Express." - Cabo Yachts

When it comes to designing new sportfishing models, some builders make compromises in order to have the finished product appeal to a more mainstream audience. That's not the case at CABO. Industry experts have hailed our 40 Express as the ultimate sportfisher, featuring a war chest of big-game angling equipment as well as a highly livable interior suitable for long, comfortable stays on board. Plus, she boasts the speed, range, and ride to reach even the most far-away fishing ground... fast.

 The handcrafted teak woodwork throughout the boat is on par with what you'd find in the finest custom home, superbly joined and finished in a satin varnish. Space below deck offers comfort and room to relax at day's end with a starboard settee that comfortably seats six and converts to an upper and lower berth, teak and holly sole, AC/heat, infloor storage compartment, recessed halogen lighting and the finest fabrics and coverings throughout. The master stateroom features a large island double berth with ample drawer and locker storage below, AC/heat, access to anchor rope/chain locker, foredeck hatch with retractable shade, recessed halogen lighting and a custom flat screen TV (AC) built in with cable hook up. You can stow 10 rods in lockers located port and starboard, and the cedar lined hanging closet offers additional storage.

According to performance tests from independent, third-part sources, she can hit an astounding 36 knots when powered by a pair of 715-hp Caterpillar C12 ACERT diesel engines. With those numbers, it should come as no surprise that this swift and seaworthy vessel has set the standard for speed in her class.
