2008 Cabo 38 Expres Overview

The CABO 38 Express is equipped with some of the finest, most powerful marine engines on the market. Youu2019ll never have a problem getting to the fish long before your competition. Our high-tech laminating technique u2013 vinylester resins are bonded with stitched biaxial reinforcement u2013 creates an incredibly strong, high-performance hull, while a vacuum-bagged core keeps the boat light and agile. Simply put, the 38 Express boasts the range and seaworthiness of a much larger sportfisher.

Also, the cockpit of the 38 Express is nothing short of a bluewater angleru2019s dream. Two large-capacity, insulated fish boxes include macerators for dependable operation and easy cleanout, while a bait prep center with sink, rigging board, and loads of storage keeps your lures and tackle tidy. Four rod holders, and both fresh and saltwater washdowns, are close at hand for even more in the way of convenience.u00a0No other brand builds a sportfisher quite like CABO (get detailed information here). Take for example our previously mentioned lamination process or our unmatched electrical systems.

In addition, the cabin of the 38 Express features all the first-class amenities owners have come to expect from CABO. Recessed halogen lighting, satin-finished teak cabinetry and woodwork, removable deep-pile carpet, flat-screen television, and designer fabrics and finishes are just the beginning. The forward stateroom can comfortably accommodate up to four anglers in one double berth and two overhead singles. A pair of storage lockers with horizontal racks in the stateroom ensure the no rod gets left at home.

The 38 Express is an ideal choice for owners of smaller fishing boats who are looking to move up, as well as for owners of bigger battlewagons who are looking to move down. A precision-designed mid-sized model, she offers greater offshore comfort than an outboard-powered vessel due to her balanced weight distribution, which increases stability without compromising speed or maneuverability. She also provides all the punch of CABOu2019s larger boats by means of her bulletproof construction and muscular twin engines. The 38 Express is an entirely new hull from the ground up. Designed by Michael Peters Yacht Design, the 38 Express has precise weight distribution, which translates to a soft, dry ride.
