Progression lies in the ability to take something great and make it better. With an already impressive fleet at our fingertips, we quickly mapped out the best direction in our search to improve the CABO express. With the 40 Hardtop Express, we took all of the best attributes of in our express fleet and combined them into one model. Optional pod drives provide the efficiency and maneuverability that make the 40 Hardtop Express one of the most quick and nimble express boats on the market.


The capstone of the Hardtop Express model is the inclusion of an integrated hardtop - a feature that has proven wildly popular with serious anglers. Powered by CMD Zeus Pod Drives, this Michael Peters blue-water hull design provides the strength and stability you expect from CABO.


Careful planning and forethought go into the placement of every element in the cockpit - especially essentials such as the bait tank, tackle center and rod storage. Mezzanine seating provides a comfortable perch while watching the spread. Insulated fishboxes are molded into the sole and equipped with in-line macerators. Full-length piano hinges and rubber gaskets allow for a tight seal, to keep your catch fresher longer. Lures and rigging equipment are neatly organized in a custom-designed tackle center at the rigging station. A number of additional options are also available.

~Design & Construction

An efficient layout and accommodations offer the comfort and aesthetic appeal that today's customers desire. With the integrated hardtop, Gone is the need for an aftermarket hardtop, vinyl windows, zippers and flaps. The integrated hardtop provides protection, visibility and comfort on the helm deck so you can spend your days fighting fish, not the elements.


The cabin of the 40 Hardtop Express showcases graceful spaciousness and refined comfort, which belie the boat's hard-core fishability. A starboard settee seats six and converts to upper and lower bunks when it's time to recharge overnight. Forward, the master stateroom features a large island double berth with ample drawer and locker space. The galley is fully equipped for fine cuisine, or just for feeding a hungry crew. A cedar- lined hanging closet provides additional stowage and, because CABO is all about fishing, lockers located port and starboard can hold up to ten rods. An optional layout featuring a second stateroom on the starboard side is available for extra privacy when hosting larger crews.
