Cabo Yachts was founded in 1991 in Adelanto, California, and quickly established itself as a major player in the inboard sportfishing boat market, building express and convertible yahts from 31 to 52 feet. Cabo sportfish are prized by owners for their quality, reliability and fishability. In 2006, Cabo Yachts was sold to Sea Ray builder Brunswick Corp., which moved production to the Hatteras Yachts facility in New Bern, N.C., in 2010. After a few years during which no new Cabos were built, in late 2018, Hatteras Yachts re-launched the brand with the new CABO 41 fishing boat, and more models are planned.

Top of the Cabo line, this pedigreed express-style fishboat's modified V-hull was designed by naval architect Michael Peters, who is also known for his custom sportfish. Construction utilized advanced vacuum-bagging techniques for a lightweight yet strong hull. Big propellers also give the Cabo 52 Express enhanced performance. The engine room is large for a boat of its class. The clean, spacious cockpit is well-laid out for fishing action and features a transom door, 50-gallon recirculating bait well, bait-prep center, tackle storage, ice box, and excellent stowage space. The bridge deck, shaded by the hardtop, has a large, L-shaped settee. The helm is positioned on centerline for excellent visibility, and has a large, raised dashboard. There's also a raised companion seat and more storage compartments to starboard. Steps lead down to the large, wood-trimmed galley, which has an impressive number of cabinets for a boat of this size. Opposite is the salon with L-shaped settee and cocktail table. Sleeping accommodations include a forward master stateroom with private head and a guest stateroom with double berth and a bunkroom, flanking the second head. Plus, the salon settee converts into yet another berth. You can take your whole angling crew out for a comfortable overnight on the spacious Cabo 52 Express.
