The Cabo 40 Flybridge benefits from the uncanny ability of Cabo engineers to give a boat the ride of a much larger boat with the agility of a smaller vessel. Built on a hull designed by Michael Peters for the Cabo 40 Express, the 40 Flybridge is destined to be the fastest in the fleet of current sportfishermen in the 40-foot range

More info

Before your boat was put into production, did the builders run the boat with the steering disconnected? Did they add and remove running strakes? Or change chine angles? The majority of builders don't bother. Cabo does all of this and more to assure that its new models are introduced only when everything is right

Before the first 40 hull ever hit the water, a scale model was tank tested. What did the engineers find? That the 40 hull ran a little faster with more strakes. So Cabo added strakes. They discovered that the least amount of spray hit the top-sides when the chines were molded at a 10 degree downward angle. So they altered the chines. And when the first hull was ready for testing, Cabo disconnected the steering at sea and allowed the rudders to set themselves- the best way to determine just how much toe-in or toeout they need to achieve perfectly straight tracking. Net results? The 40 hull has proven to be fast, dry and comfortable and runs straight when you let go of the wheel.

As with every boat ever built by Cabo Yachts, the engineering and construction are first class. Check out the wiring. It is labeled, color coded, more tightly loomed and rigidly organized than the wiring on any other boat you'll see. In fact, the 40 Express' wiring is the best of any production fishing boat on the water today. Look behind the dash on several different boats when you do the boat show circuit this year, you won't find a better setup.

Also, note the Cabo 40 Flybridge transom livewell. It has 16 separate water inlets going up the sides to eliminate dead spots. The dump valve is 2" and drains the well completely in minutes. And, of course, it's lighted


As Cabo often says, quality is in the details and there is nearly an endless list of details that push the Cabo 40 ahead of the average sportfisherman. The locking pins securing the engine room ladder are triple the normal size. The instrument console can easily accommodate today's large screen electronics. The standard oil exchange system and all washdowns are fitted with quick disconnects. Raw-water intakes for the livewell and washdown have sea strainers.

The custom made fiberglass fuel tank is glassed to the hull and deck. Shafts are 2" in diameter, the size usually found on 45' to 50' boats. The stovetop is recessed an inch so sliding pots won't end up on the galley sole. A crash pump fitted to the engine can evacuate up to 6,540 gph. Everywhere you look, above or below deck, you see detail, thought and flawless execution and soon you realize why Cabo has become the leading builder of offshore sportfishing boats in America

With the 40 Flybridge, CABO took a great boat - the 40 Express - and made it greater by expanding the accommodations and creating a powerful, purposeful, comfortable sportfisher. Like every model in the CABO fleet, this one is built to tackle big seas and big fish thanks to her specialized features and design. But she also allows owners to relax in style after a long day on the water inside her finely appointed interior. Whether chasing down a marlin or cruising up the coast, the 40 Flybridge is pure, uncompromised CABO.


A creation of renowned Michael Peters Yacht Design, the hull of the CABO 40 could be the smoothest, fastest, and driest in our lineup bluewater battlewagons. This running bottom benefits from the uncanny ability of CABO and its partners to give a boat the ride of a much larger vessel without sacrificing speed or agility. Like the 40 Express, the 40 Flybridge utilizes a stiff, lightweight modified-V hull matched to twin turbo-charged diesels, so owners can always get to the fish well in advance of the competition.

Spacious and equipped with everything a saltwater angler needs to fish anywhere in the world, the cockpit of the 40 Flybridge houses a large, insulated ice chest and a bait prep center with a sink and rigging board. Underneath, a three-drawer locker is ideal for tackle and tools that the owner needs close at hand. One of the two in-deck fish boxes can be fitted with refrigerated chill plates. These boxes run fore and aft to prevent the damage to fish that can occur in boxes positioned port to starboard.

Attention to detail is evident everywhere. The lighted transom livewell, for instance, has 16 separate water inlets running vertically along the sides to eliminate dead spots, and a 2-inch dump valve can drain the well in minutes. The heavy-duty transom door features a top gate and custom hinges fastened with flat-head bolts that are offset for optimum reliability during a lifetime of use.

Design & Construction

The heart of any boat is her engine room. The 40 Flybridge has a fit and flawless heart that excels in the practical installation of her machinery, including engines, generator, air-conditioning compressors, oil change system, and fiberglass fuel tanks. All wiring is labeled and color coded, and is more tightly loomed and skillfully organized than the wiring on any other boat in the industry. Superior quality extends right down to the locking pins that secure the engine room ladder, which are triple the normal size.

The generous cabin of the 40 Flybridge is expertly engineered - utilizing molded components for the floors, staterooms, and heads - and is richly decorated. The step-down galley features upgraded standards such as Corian® countertops, a recessed two-burner cook top, microwave, sink, and a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. Under the galley sole is a cavernous "pantry" running athwartship.

Down the companionway steps, a master stateroom all the way forward centers on a double island berth and includes a flatscreen TV with DVD player and stereo sound system. The guest cabin to starboard has a pullout single berth above a fixed double. Two head compartments add expediency for the owner and guests alike.
