Project: Cabo 41

It was strange times in the fall of 2013 when the new Hatteras owners Versa Capital decided to drop the Cabo brand.  For some it was a shock to others it was an expected turn of events coming from the increased success and size of the outboard powered center console, which made traditional inboard offshore sportfish cruisers sub twelve meters mostly obsolete.  The truth might have been somewhere in between with Hatteras Cabo press e-mail for this project saying that the new owners back then in 2013 decided to concentrate first investment efforts on the relaunch of Hatteras.  Fast forward to 2018 and Hatteras announce that Cabo is back and present the project for the new 41 model.  The 41 is based for the most part on the 2003 launched 40 designed by Micheal Peters, one of Cabo's best selling models over the years and also referred by many as the King in the express twelve meter sportfish cruiser category.  The new Cabo 41 will feature a lower deck with an owners cabin forward, a living with an L-shaped settee dinette to starboard which converts to additional double berth, an L-shape galley to port side, and a shower head upon entrance to port side.  Power for the Cabo 41 will come from standard Volvo 626hp with optional 670hp and 725hp engines.  Popular available options for the Cabo 41 will be Seakeeper gyro stabilization, and full custom tower with outriggers.  Hull one of the Cabo 41 is nearly completed and sold and should make its World debut in the upcoming 2018 Fort Lauderdale boat show in early November.
