Helm deck

Two small steps up from the cockpit brings you to the climate-controlled helm deck. She is very comfortably appointed and offers great seating and views of all the action. There is an L shaped seating area to port. Across to stbd is a tackle storage center with a flat top. This spot is good for a great many things. I have seen it used as a bar, hors d'oeuvre serving, tackle and gear placement. Currently outfitted with custom cushions and utilized as a nice, elevated seat. Additional helm deck highlights include:

Lower Accommodations

Just to starboard of the centerline helm is a door that slides open to access the lower accommodations. Three steps down brings you in the salon/galley area. The Cabo interior finish is clean, simple, and like the rest of the boat best in class. The salon sole is solid teak and holly, a factory option, and all the cabinetry is solid satin finished teak. No high gloss milky veneer finishes like on other manufacturers.

To Starboard is the L shaped ultra-leather sofa with high gloss teak table. This table is removable and then the sofa transforms into a pull out bed and the back flips up to create a bunk. Also to stbd aft is a large stand up rod locker.

To port is the galley and aft is a full head.  Features include:

  • Corian countertops                                               
  • Solid teak cabinetry

  • Island queen berth with storage underneath
  • Dual cedar lined hanging lockers

Engine Room

The engine room on the 40 Cabo has a glassed in gel coat liner that makes clean up a breeze. Fluids, oil or dirt does not get into the fiberglass filaments and texture like other inferior finished vessels. The engine room on "Waterboy" shows exceptional, just like the rest of the vessel. When turbos and cooling system parts were removed for 2022 service and updates, they were all repainted. (pictures avail) Engine room access is from a helm deck day hatch or the helm deck will tilt it up for huge access on two large hydraulic rams. Some of the engine room equipment and maintenance highlights include:
