Hatteras, specialized in the construction of convertible sportfishing and luxury motor yachts from 41 to 105 feet, reintroduced the CABO fishing boats brand. At Miami Boat Show was displayed the first new model, CABO 41.
Starting with the new model, the CABO line is now in production at the Hatteras/CABO Yachts facilities in New Bern.
The CABO 41 will be equipped with twin Volvo Penta D11 626hp engines with upgrades available to 670hp and 725hp, as well as with Cummins QSM11 propulsion. The available options include the Seakeeper 6 stabilization system and full custom tower and outriggers.
CABO 41 features a spacious cockpit with mezzanine eating and an open helm deck. Its interior encompasses a queen-berth stateroom, large head, a galley and salon with settee/dining area that converts to a second berth.
“We feel the market conditions are right to bring back the proven CABO line of hard-core fishing boats,” said Hatteras/CABO Yachts President and CEO Kelly Grindle. “Consumer research shows a continued strong affinity for the brand. CABO ranks as one of the top brands for quality and reliability. We intend to build on this well-deserved reputation as we fill a growing demand in the marketplace for inboard offshore, express-style fishing boats – a niche that CABO once owned. CABO will provide a step up from a center console to a boat that offers greater comfort and amenities while owners pursue their passion for angling offshore.”
“The CABO 41 is aimed at the sportfishing enthusiast who wants a better performing, higher quality, more comfortable offshore fishing platform,” Grindle said. “This model is only the beginning – the new CABO line. We have in development will be made up of easy-to-own, durable fishing machines that give anglers the confidence to fish longer and the satisfaction of catching more fish while staying dry and comfortable, even in rough conditions.”
Joe Cacopardo, director of marketing, Hatteras/CABO Yachts, LLC adds; “The new CABO 41 is perfectly positioned between the higher-end Hatteras product line and the other competitors currently on the market.”
