Cabo 35 Express
The Cabo 35 Express is a top-level sportfishing machine whose impeccable detailing, superior engineering and rugged construction made her one of the top-selling boats in her class for several years. Constructed on a modified-V hull with a relatively wide beam and a shallow keel, the hull was updated in 2000 with a finer entry to provide a softer ride and improved head-sea performance. While a centerline double berth was offered in early models, more recent interiors were offered with a traditional V-berth or an offset double berth forward. Cabin headroom is excellent and the decor is very upscale for a fishing boat. The cockpit is big for a 35-footer and came standard with a bait prep center, transom door, two in-deck storage boxes, deck washdowns, and plenty of rod storage. An L-shaped settee is opposite the helm (a companion seat was optional), and the entire bridge deck lifts for access to the motors. In 2002, the deck tooling was updated and side vents were added to the windshield. Early models with 375hp Cats cruise in the mid 20s; later models with 540hp Cummins cruise at 30+ knots.
