    With her beautiful design, exterior teak, and classis lines, IMPETUOUS III will please even the most discriminating buyer. Cabo Rico sailboats are not just built, they are created. Her timeless design, from the clipper bow sprit sweeping gracefully into her jaunty sheer, to her easy to handle modern rig, the Cabo Rico 38 was conceived, designed, and built to be the perfect cruising yacht. Cabo Rico Yachts were built in San Jose, Costa Rica where they found a balance of highly skilled craftsman and production facilities that combine traditional boat building methods with today’s materials, technologies, and cost effective management. The modern 125,000 square foot facility included; a lumber mill where they plane, size and kiln dry their own solid teak; a cabinet shop where all joinery is hand assembled to exacting tolerances; a metal shop for fabricating pulpits, rails, chain plates, bow fittings, and other custom stainless steel hardware; and a separate building for all fiberglass molding and final assembly. Each Cabo Rico was hand crafted beginning with a heavily built hull that far exceeded even today’s standards. Alternative layers of fiberglass mat and roving fiberglass are hand laid to a thickness of 1” surrounding the keel and ¾” to the sheer. From the garboards to the rub rail a 5/8” balsa wood core adds tremendous strength to the topsides, while providing excellent sound deadening and insulating qualities. The ballast is pre-formed casting fitted into the keel cavity. All voids are filled with a special fiberglass compound and the whole area is covered with layers of fiberglass and floor cross members. The keel encapsulation procedure insures the immobility of the ballast while providing extra strength, rigidity and the security of a double thick hull in this crucial area. Like the hull, the deck is also of one-piece molded construction. It to, has a balsa wood core providing superior strength and rigidity along with excellent insulating qualities. Extra wide side decks and molded in bulwarks assure safe footing while adding strength and water-tight integrity and at the hull-deck joint. A molded anchor locker with teak deck hatches, roller chocks, teak cap rails, hooded companionway, two chromed bronze dorade vents mounted on plexiglass and teak boxes, the teak and plexiglass deck hatches, along with the highest quality stainless steel and chrome plated hardware, ports and hawser holes are among a few of the amenities that you will find on the Cabo Rico 38. IMPETUOUS III is a beautiful example of the Cabo Rico 38 and she should not be missed. IMPETUOUS III is a yacht built to sail. Her long keeled, full bodied hull gives you the sure and steady feel one would expect, while her fine entry and high aspect cutter rig provides easy sailing and performance on all points.  Whether island hopping the Caribbean or sailing around the world the Cabo Rico 38 provides a safe and comfortable passage making.
