Improve-it = Cabo 40 Flybridge

During the recent Miami boat show Cabo has presented a redesigned interior for the 40 Flybridge model. Cabo’s designers have improved this most popular Sportfish Cruiser flybridge model with added interior comfort and design appeal. Cabo retained the beautifully finished teak used in the 40 Flybridge cabinet doors, then expanded its use and coverage to the cabinet frames, storage lockers, and bulkheads for a more inviting environment. Cabo also introduced several new decor packages for customers to choose from, adding wall coverings and padded panel options instead of bare gel coat in the living spaces. The two cabin two heads interior of the refreshed 40 Flybridge represent an evolutionary change for one of Cabo's best sellers, providing a new level of thoughtful attention. The interior design below deck in a Cabo equals the detail which has always gone into the cockpit, helm deck and wiring which is considered an industry standard. While the new 40 Flybridge interiors are definitely more luxurious, the fit and finish is designed to retain the low maintenance approach of the traditional utilitarian interiors they replace. Also a new option for the 40 Flybridge is the availability of ZF Zeus pod propulsion with twin 600hp Cummins option. This choice follows what was seen on the 40 Express, Cabo's first pod drive boat which shares the same Micheal Peter's hull with the 40 Flybridge. For those still in doubt of new technology Cabo still offers three engine choices with the traditional line shaft propulsion from 715hp Cats, up to 800hp MANs.
