36 Express CABO Yachts
A true sportfishing machine, our 36 Express represents the same excellent design, engineering and construction that anglers have come to expect from CABO. The hull is remarkably balanced to provide a dry, smooth and fast ride. Proper balance allows the 36 Express to ride high in waves, kick up less spray and move forward effortlessly. The interior lives up to CABO’s standards in quality, featuring solid-surface countertops, stainless hardware, fine cabinetry, ample rod storage, and superior fabrics and materials – everything the discerning sportsman expects from a boat bearing the CABO name.
Vessel speed and efficiency are critical attributes to ensure that you get to the fishing grounds faster, and allow you to stay longer. With an engine package specifically designed to maximize performance, the 36 Express delivers a range and top speed that is sure to please. Her ability to back down swiftly and pivot nimbly can make the difference between boating a trophy fish or reeling in a broken line. The 36 Express can be equipped with standard propulsion or Pod drives, which offer more maneuverability.
Ample fighting space provides enough room to handle multiple hookups – a significant benefit that is often excluded in smaller boats. The bait prep center has a sink, rigging board, deep tackle drawers and an icebox for cockpit convenience. Since you can never have too many rods, the 36 Express also comes with locking storage to accommodate all of your favorites.
Design & Construction
As a Michael Peters design, careful thought and consideration has been given to creating an incredibly strong, high-performance hull. CABO uses high-tech laminating processes to assure tremendous hull and topside deck strength. The boat’s highly sophisticated reinforced fiberglass interior module adds even greater resistance to torsion and flexure. Using a method far superior to conventional techniques, CABO bonds the hull and interior into one monolithic structure, ensuring the vessel is truly seaworthy in calm seas or high squalls.
The 36 Express is a no-nonsense sportfishing boat – but that doesn’t mean that she can’t have well-equipped accommodations. In the 36 Express, you will find an efficient galley that runs portside of the living space, and features a recessed two-burner cook-top, microwave/ convection oven, and under-counter cold storage. Teak cabinets are plentiful, and have recessed halogen lighting installed underneath. The double V-berth lies in the forward section of the cabin, and the L-shaped lounge converts to accommodations for two more. Storage compartments and lockers are found throughout. To complete the layout, the full head with a separate shower stall lies aft of the main living space.
