Cabo Yachts

Cabo Yachts

Originally built in Adelanto, CA, Cabo Yachts are sportfishing boats in express and convertible configurations, from 32 to 52 feet. Cabos have been long known for their excellent fit and finish, stout construction, and attention to detail. All are powered by inboard diesels, with some modern models being offered in pod drive configurations. These are yachts built and designed for the hands-on boater: enginerooms are designed for easy access and maintenance; wiring runs are labeled and loomed, and accessories are mounted and accessed in user-friendly positions. Cabo is also one of the few builders to invest a great deal in research and development, and regularly tank-tested multiple models before settling on hullforms and power options. In 2006 Cabo Yachts was acquired by the Brunswick Corporation, the world’s largest boatbuilder.

Cabo Yachts 52 Express

  • Boat Summary
  • Full Details

Boat Description

The 52 Express meets the superior standards set by her smaller siblings - then takes them to the next level. Built with the same precision, performance and fishability for which the CABO brand is widely acclaimed, additional options offered by the 52 Express allow owners to equip their vessel to suit their specific desires.

Performance
Big and beamy, the 52 Express runs smooth and fast, and remains remarkably dry even in the most challenging conditions. She carries substantial weight aft, enhancing balance and ride characteristics in following seas and waves. Imagine how quickly you can get to your record-breaking marlin with the exceptional performance offered by the 52 Express.

Fishability
Designed from the keel up with the needs of the avid sportfisherman in mind, the cockpit of the 52 Express includes a professional bait prep center, an abundance of tackle storage, a 75-gallon circulating bait tank molded into the transom, large-capacity insulated fish boxes, and much, much more. As on every CABO, the 52 Express includes an aluminum reinforcement plate molded into the cockpit deck for mounting a fighting chair. Gaff and tag stick holders are positioned under the gunnels, and five rod holders come standard. Self-bailing cockpit scuppers, a transom gate and outward opening "tuna door" fitted with CABO's beefy custom hinges, and quick-disconnect fresh and saltwater wash-down systems add to the utility of the cockpit fishing space.

Design & Construction
The helm deck's molded command console is carefully positioned, providing the captain with a clear view forward, abeam, and astern. It has room for a complete assortment of modern marine electronics and digital readouts, plus numerous custom switch panels, warning lights, and alarms. Optional single-lever electronic controls promise smooth and responsive maneuverability, while comfortable helm and companion seats include adjustable footrests. Extra, lockable storage for tackle and accessories has been built-in under the L-shaped lounge.

Accommodations
The cabin of the 52 Express showcases graceful spaciousness and refined comfort, amidst the boat's hard-core fishability. The main salon of the 52 Express features a large L-shaped lounge, as well as a Bose® LS-U35 surround sound stereo system. Forward, the master stateroom accommodates a choice of an island berth or three singles. To port, a second stateroom has twin berths and a dresser. A spacious galley and two head compartments are conveniently located and fully equipped for cruising comfort. The 52 Express can also be configured for a three-stateroom layout, to provide maximum privacy for those with larger crews. This optional arrangement provides for an efficient galley/ salon combo, equipped with a large settee.
