Cabo 47 Flybridge
The Cabo 48 (called the Cabo 47 until 2003) is a top-tier flybridge yacht whose uncompromising design and quality construction place her in the leading ranks of mid-range sportfishing boats. Cabos have an enviable reputation for fit and finish and the 48 is a showcase of Cabo’s engineering excellence. 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 and a lighted 50-gallon transom livewell. The original galley-up, two-stateroom floorplan was arranged with the master stateroom forward, twin berths in the guest cabin, and separate stall showers in both heads. In 2003, a new three-stateroom floorplan relocated the master suite to port with the main guest cabin forward and a small guest stateroom to starboard. (Note that the 48, with its three-stateroom floorplan, has a slightly smaller cockpit than the original 47 model.) It would be difficult to find a better engineered engine compartment. Twin 800hp MANs cruise at 28 knots (32–33 knots top), and optional 1150hp MANs reach over 30 knots.

More about the Cabo 47 Flybridge
As a sportsfisherman the 47 has the usual fishing features but with improvements. Two seven-foot long insole fishboxes are on either side of the cockpit and have split hatches with gas-assist struts so they are easier to open. The 50-gallon livewell is waist-high for easy access, and there is also a bait-prep center with sink and freezer. One key feature, is a cockpit locker that houses all the switches you need to run everything in the cockpit. Stepping inside the salon you are greeted with a teak-and-holly sole, an L-shaped lounge, and dining area for four. The galley comes complete with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, two-burner Kenyon cooktop, microwave oven and trash compactor. Forward there are accommodations for six in two cabins and two heads with showers. Lastly, the 47 comes standard with a 10-kW genset and washer/dryer unit to keep everyone fresh-looking on extended trips.
According to independent performance tests, the 47 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 while handling anything that gets in her way.
