The Cabo 35 Express is a top-level sportfishing machine with superior engineering, rugged construction and impeccable attention to detail. This model is highly desirable with her shallow draft and wide beam, giving the boat a softer ride and great head-sea performance. The interior cabin is detailed with beautiful Teak cabinetry complete with a galley, dinette, full head and provides a 6’11” headroom. The boat has a double berth forward with a dinette sofa that converts to 2 single bunks.

The Caterpillar 3126B are reliable engines, with low original hours. Constant maintenance, service and updated equipment makes this Cabo a great collector. This owner has been faithful to this boat and she ready for her next chapter.
