Created by the boat building team of Henry Mohrschaldt and Michael Howarth, the same craftsman selected by Fortune Magazine for building one of the top 100 products in the world, the Cabo 35 Express is a benchmark in design, construction, and performance. As an offshore powerboat racer, Dick Ornstein knows that it takes a masterful blend of design and construction to achieve a high level of performance. When it came time to purchase a sportfisher for his personal use, he chose Cabo for just those reasons. Even more important in the real world, however, is that the Cabo Express can eat up the miles at a comfortable cruising speed of 33 mph and still have a range of nearly 350 miles. This combination of speed and range gets the Cabo 35 to a faraway fishing ground fast and allows it to stay longer than any comparable boat. Whether you're backing down on a billfish, spinning to stay with tuna, or firewalling the throttles to head for new fishing grounds, the Cabo 35 Express responds instantly to helm and engines.
