Ditch Digger
47' Cabo Convertible 2001

$ 438,900

Ditch Digger is a Cabo 47' Convertible listed for sale with United Yacht Broker Brian Franc. Brian can be reached at 1-850-428-0866 to answer any questions you may have on this boat. United Yacht Sales is a professional brokerage firm that has experience listing and selling all types of Saltwater Fishing and similar boats. With over 165 yacht brokers worldwide, we have the largest network of boat buyers and sellers in the industry.

With confidence I believe “Ditch Digger” is one of the cleanest, best conditioned 47-50Ft Sportfish Convertibles you will see in today’s marketplace. This Cabo Yacht, sold new to this Owner, is powered by twin MAN 2848 @ 800HP and 2,200hrs. and speeds of 30kts at cruise and 35kts WOT.  This 47 Cabo has been maintained and serviced by one mechanic and is well known for its solid Hull Bottom and strong hull sides and decks resulting in a powerfully sturdy Sportfisherman with a 50Ft LOA.  Built for tournament fishing another advantage is the 7Ft Long insole fishboxes on either side of the cockpit with split hatches that easily open for smaller fish or allow entire hatch removal to store The ‘Big Fish’. The Hull Color is an attractive “Ice Blue” and looks even better in person. The helm itself is of the Palm-Beach variety, with centerline pod-style helm and twin ladder-backed pedestal chairs. The owner just purchased a Brand New custom Bluewater Fishing Chair. This 47 Cabo is kept always under cover in a private slip.  Don’t Miss out this amazing Sportfish Boat for the upcoming Season… as supplies of quality pre-owned boats are dwindling in today’s boating industry. This NEW LISTING  “Ditch Digger” will not last long!
