New Model: Cabo 44 Express

Following on the success of the Cabo 44 Hardtop Express, the famous production sportfish is clever to present a full open version of this the 44 Express, which replaces the long standing 45 model.  With a hull designed by famous underwater lines specialist Michael Peters the main difference between its predecessor is the removal of the hardtop. But this little detail changes the whole concept of this sportfish cruiser, also making it become a more fisherman hardcore machine.  The elevated pod helm station comes standard with two seats with an option of third.  Inside is also the same ingenious interior with a single cabin and a fisherman utility room, or a two cabins choice in between the L-shaped settee and galley.  Power is for four engine choices from twin Cats 710 up to 1150hp, with MAN 800s in between.
