40 HTX CABO Yachts
CABO Yachts is proud to debut the newest member of its sportfishing fleet — the 40 Hardtop Express. The 40 HTX follows in the footsteps of the revolutionary 44 HTX that debuted last year. Built upon the same proven foundation as the 40 Flybridge and its predecessor, the 40 Express; the new model provides the strength and maneuverability of a CABO, while delivering the comfort on deck provided by an integrated hardtop.
The new helm deck offers twin forward facing captain’s chairs on the center line and starboard of the entrance to the lower deck. Aft of the starboard seat is a tackle center and storage compartment as well as an insulated drink box. An L-shaped lounge aft and to port offers storage below and provides a relaxing perch while enjoying the ride. An optional third helm seat is available to port. A mezzanine-styled seat is situated behind the L-shaped lounge facing the spread,and features a flip-down footrest for ergonomic comfort and maximized deck space in the cockpit.
The cockpit is pure CABO, featuring twin in-sole fish boxes, dedicated rod and gaff storage, a bait prep station with tackle storage, a 48-gallon bait tank in the transom, padded gunwales, and a transom door with top gate. As with all other CABO’s, the hardware, hinges, and gaskets are all heavy-duty – engineered to withstand the toughest seas and anglers’ demands.
Below deck,the 40 HTX offers the comfort and amenities found on larger vessels. The cabinetry is teak with a satin finish, topped by premium solid surface countertops. The standard layout can berth up to 4 with two in the bow stateroom, and another two on the converted settee in the salon/galley. An optional layout, new to the 40 platform, provides for a second bunk room to starboard. This arrangement allows for the berthing of up to 6 crew members.
The CABO 40HTX scheduled for debut is powered with twin Cummins QSC8.3 diesels at 600hpm featuring Zeus pod drives, providing a brisk, economical cruise as well as competitive top-end speed. The new model will also have the option of conventional propulsion with either twin CAT C12 ACERTS or Cummins QSM-11’s, both rated at 715hpm. The entire helm deck articulates by hydraulic lift to provide access to the engine room and mechanical spaces.
CABO Yachts is very excited to debut CABO 40 Hardtop Express at the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show. Her larger sibling, the 44 HTX, has been greeted with great enthusiasm in the market place; proving that an integrated hardtop design would prove popular with express customers. The 40HTX seeks to capitalize on that momentum and provide those same benefits in combination with the very popular Zeus pod propulsion system
Like all other CABO models, the 40 HTX is a rugged fishing machine, delivering an incredible ride balanced by a comfortable and inviting interior. She will definitely appeal to both serious anglers and those interested in cruising with confidence around the globe.
