    Manufacturer Provided Description

    The 44 Hardtop Express launched the next step in sportfisher design evolution for CABO Yachts, with the integration of a new hardtop – taking what was already a leader in fishability to another level. This exciting express is designed to be the most fishable CABO ever. Its innovative design and interior accommodations continue to meet the demands of its core market – serious offshore anglers.

    Like many of the latest CABOs to be introduced in the past few years, the foundation of the 44 Hardtop Express is its Michael Peters designed hull. From there, the propulsion design, electrical systems and attention to detail in every screw and hinge is executed in the same manner that built CABO’s reputation for creating a rugged and efficient boat.

    Careful planning and forethought go into the placement of every element in the cockpit – especially essentials such as the bait tank, tackle center and rod storage. Mezzanine seating provides a comfortable perch while watching the spread. Insulated fishboxes are molded into the sole and equipped with in-line macerators. Full-length piano hinges and rubber gaskets allow for a tight seal, to keep your catch fresher longer. Lures and rigging equipment are neatly organized, in a custom-designed tackle center at the rigging station. A number of additional options are also available.

    Design & Construction
    The integrated hard top created an impressive new design unlike any CABO before it – utilizing its three-sided enclosure to offer better protection from the elements, improved visibility, and greater comfort on the helm deck. Below deck, the interior offers a comfortable living space equal in size to the 45 Express that it replaced, and larger than competitor’s models in its range.

    While a 2-stateroom layout is standard on the 44 Hardtop Express, it can also be configured with a single stateroom and angler’s room, or a 3-stateroom arrangement for those with larger crews. The standard second stateroom offers the comfort of private twin berths away from the master, while the optional anglers room layout features a display cabinet, custom rod racks, ample work surface, additional interior storage, and an open floor plan. The full-length, aft-facing galley counter allows easy access to appliances, while creating more floor space in the living/dining area. The master stateroom and shared head are forward of the main living area and offer the comfort and amenities in keeping with CABO’s next generation of sportfishers.
