2005 Cabo 45 Express

Point Pleasant, New Jersey


When she was introduced, the CABO 45 Express garnered Boating Magazine's "Boat of the Year" award her first year in production. The critics referred to her glowingly as the unchallenged big kahuna on the market that transcends the rest of the pack not only in terms of design, but also in engineering, construction and gorgeous-to-look-at pulchritude.  When you step aboard a CABO 45, you'll immediately understand why almost every boating magazine in the world has lauded this CABO with superlatives. You'll be astonished at what the 45 Express is capable of when chasing down a fish. Not only does she turn on a dime, back down like no other, but the 45 Express stays right where you put her, even in the roughest of seas. And, because of her wide beam, Modified-V bottom and low center of gravity, this CABO is a fighting platform with unequaled stability in all conditions.

"LICENSE 2 CHILL" is ready to go! She is upgraded with all new state-of-the-art Simrad electronics and diamond stitch upholstery for the Cockpit and Helm Deck. Her Bridge Deck provides great visibility forward & aft. There is a large seating area for guests and crew, which is kept cool and comfortable with 30,000 BTU's of air conditioning. Below there is the Main Cabin with Galley. Accommodations to sleep six, in the two Staterooms and the fold-out sofa bed. She has been well maintained, both inside and out.
