Some boats claim to raise fish. Others, like the CABO 35 Express, let their success speak for itself. A favorite of charter captains and seasoned anglers worldwide, she features a hull with small propeller pockets and clean underwater lines that create two ideal trolling alleys behind the transom, greatly increasing the number of strikes. It's one of the reasons other builders continue to study this benchmark model as they launch their own versions of our popular mid-sized sportfisher.
Vessel speed and efficiency are critical for getting you to the fishing grounds faster and allowing you to stay longer. With turbo-charged, after-cooled Caterpillar V-8 diesels, the 35 Express has a top speed and range that leaves the competition in her wake. In addition, her ability to back down swiftly and pivot nimbly can make the difference between boating a trophy fish or reeling in a broken line. And thanks to a wide beam, modified-V bottom, and low center of gravity, this CABO is extraordinarily stable in all sea conditions.
The team at CABO started with the cockpit, the most critical area for fishermen, and built the rest of the boat around it. With nearly 100 square feet of fighting space, there's enough room to handle multiple hookups. The big bait prep center has four deep tackle drawers, a sink, a rigging board, and even an icebox for cockpit convenience. Two large, insulated, gasketed fish boxes feature oversized drains and macerators to quickly clear away debris when sprayed out with the fresh and saltwater washdowns. Because you can never have too many rods, the 35 Express also comes with locking storage to accommodate all your favorites.
~Design & Construction
The CABO 35 Express represents the leading edge of boat construction, with careful thought given to using the finest materials and creating an incredibly strong and lightweight hull. The running bottom is made of stiff, solid fiberglass below the waterline, while the topsides and deck are a baltec-coated sandwich to reduce weight and provide sound insulation.
With all the engine room systems strategically segregated - electrical on one side, plumbing on the other, and service items on the centerline - accessibility and maintenance is a breeze. Even areas that are normally hidden, such as bilges and locker interiors, are gelcoated for a smooth finish that not only looks great, but also cleans up easily.

Just because the 35 Express is a no-nonsense sportfishing boat doesn't mean that she can't have refined accommodations. The forward cabin features a double berth, bureau, and settee, while the L-shaped lounge converts to upper and lower bunks. The comfortable interior, accented with warm teak, provides custom-caliber amenities like polished countertops with sea rails, designer fabrics, and ample storage throughout. From the deep-pile carpeting to the recessed halogen lighting, the CABO 35 Express is both practical and luxurious everywhere you look.
