Manufacturer Provided Description
Whether trolling of drifting, the Cabo 31 Express rolls gently and predictably. Cabo Yachts has built its reputation on making fishing boats and as such, the Cabo 31 offers every amenity an experienced fisherman could want. From cockpit washdowns to large, dual fish boxes, from an incredibly complete tackle and bait prep center, to rod storage for a dozen big-tackle rigs, the Cabo runs to the fishing grounds fully armed. Cabo Yachts and designer Lou Codega combined their knowledge and skill to produce a hull with an 18.5-degree transom deadrise, and wide reversed chines provide exceptional roll stability for trolling in a beam sea, while the deep forefoot, and 46-degree deadrise at the bow provide the softest head-sea ride possible. It is the perfect compromise between deep-V running ability and moderate-V fuel efficiency. A 12-foot 5-inch beam carried well forward provides buoyancy to lift the bow up over the steepest wave while providing extraordinary internal living space. The first thing noticed upon approaching a Cabo 31 is the gleam - Cabo Yachts uses only quality gelcoats. A solid fiberglass bottom consisting of biaxial stitched fiberglass roving assures a rock solid and secure hull. From the waterline to the rails, the Cabo incorporates Baltek end-grain balsa coring for strength without performance- hindering weight. And to augment the hull's external integrity, Cabo Yachts employs a structural module that eliminates torsional flex, and makes the entire hull and interior one solid piece that will build confidence, even in severe conditions. The Cabo 31 has an optional teak and holly cabin sole - the base for rich fabrics, recessed lighting, and decorator upholstery. Solid Corian counters and plush sleeping accommodations are standard. The galley has an electric stove, microwave oven, and refrigerator and freezer. The substantial head provides a good hot shower after swimming or a hard day on the water as well as a comfortable, well-lit vanity when heading out for the evening. The cabin of the Cabo 31 is both elegant for entertaining and offers abundant rod storage for the serious offshore angler.
