The 2008 Cabo 48 Convertible, "Terrible", is a premium, high-quality flybridge convertible whose uncompromising design and quality construction place her in the leading ranks of mid-range sportfishing boats. Cabo's have an enviable reputation for fit and finish and the 48 is a showcase of Cabo’s engineering excellence. The three-stateroom floorplan has the master suite to port with the main guest cabin forward and a small guest stateroom to starboard. Built on a modified-V hull with cored hullsides and a well-flared bow, the cockpit is huge—largest of any sportfishing boat in this class—and comes with a full array of fishing amenities including an excellent bait-prep center, in-deck fish boxes, lighted 50-gallon transom livewell, and Twin 1100 MANs cruise at 33 knots (37–39 knots top).
