Cabo Yachts raised the bar once again with the addition of the 48 Flybridge to its highly regarded line-up of high performance sportfishing boats. Stepping onto the cockpit of the CABO 48 Flybridge, it is immediately apparent why she's the ideal platform for fishing or cruising with family and friends.
When it's time to cook up the catch of the day, the galley includes a recessed twin-burner cook top, a convection/microwave oven, custom Corian® countertops with sea-rails, and separate Sub-Zero® refrigerator and freezer drawers. A starboard dining table and portside settee provide space for everyone to spread out.
Forward down the companionway, the master stateroom to port features a pedestal berth, hanging locker, flatscreen television and private head with a shower stall. Located forward on centerline is the VIP stateroom, with large cedar-lined hanging lockers and a private entry to the guest head. The guest cabin is to starboard and comes with two berths and a washer/dryer combo unit. In addition, each of the 48 Flybridge's staterooms includes abundant storage, enough for long, comfortable cruises or fishing forays far from home.
The 48 Flybridge boasts all the materials and craftsmanship that have made CABO the frontrunner among manufacturers of world-class offshore fishing machines. The hull, which is solid fiberglass below the waterline with composite vacuum-bagged sides, has a sharp entry that leads back to a nearly flat aft section. This gives the boat a solid, stable feel in both head seas and following seas, plus outstanding maneuverability whether backing down on a fish or docking.
According to independent performance tests, the 48 Flybridge can reach a highly competitive range of more than 550 miles and a top speed of more than 40 mph. And with engine packages ranging up to twin 1,100-hp MAN diesels, she can cruise contentedly at 30+ knots while handling anything that gets in her way.
The design team at CABO listened carefully to the needs of its sport fishing owners. Consequently, the cockpit is the biggest in her class, providing as much space as many larger battlewagons. Placement of the essentials - bait freezers, livewells, tackle drawers, and cabinets for gaffs and bait nets - is strategically planned. Huge fish boxes are molded into the cockpit sole and equipped with in-line macerators, full-length piano hinges, gas struts, rubber gaskets. Lures and tools are easily organized at the rigging station, which includes a sink, cutting board, and bait chest. In short, the CABO 48 Flybridge offers all the goods for anglers who seek the ideal platform for Bluewater fishing.
