Cabo 48 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 48 Flybridge
The 48 Flybridge boasts all the materials and craftsmanship that have made Cabo the frontrunner among world-class offshore fishing manufacturers. 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.
The design team at Cabo listened carefully to the needs of its sportfishing 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. In addition, huge fish boxes are molded into the cockpit sole and equipped with in-line macerators, full-length piano hinges, gas struts, rubber gaskets, and, if desired, an optional ice chipper. 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.
Forward down the companionway, the master stateroom to port features a pedestal berth, hanging locker, flatscreen television and DVD player, and private head with a shower stall. The VIP stateroom is equipped 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, suitable for comfortable cruises or adventures far from home.
