As the flagship of the CABO fleet, the 52 Express meets the superior standards set by her smaller siblings - then takes them to the next level. Built with the same precision, performance and fishability for which the CABO brand is widely acclaimed, additional options offered by the 52 Express allow owners to equip their vessel to suit their specific desires.


Big and beamy, the 52 Express runs smooth and fast, and remains remarkably dry even in the most challenging conditions. She carries substantial weight aft, enhancing balance and ride characteristics in following seas and waves. Imagine how quickly you can get to your record-breaking marlin with the exceptional performance offered by the 52 Express.


Designed from the keel up with the needs of the avid sportfisherman in mind, the cockpit of the 52 Express includes a professional bait prep center, an abundance of tackle storage, a 75-gallon circulating bait tank molded into the transom, large-capacity insulated fish boxes, and much, much more.
As on every CABO, the 52 Express includes an aluminum reinforcement plate molded into the cockpit deck for mounting a fighting chair. Gaff and tag stick holders are positioned under the gunnels, and five rod holders come standard. Self-bailing cockpit scuppers, a transom gate and outward opening "tuna door" fitted with CABO's beefy custom hinges, and quick-disconnect fresh and saltwater wash-down systems add to the utility of the cockpit fishing space.

~Design & Construction

The helm deck's molded command console is carefully positioned, providing the captain with a clear view forward, abeam, and astern. It has room for a complete assortment of modern marine electronics and digital readouts, plus numerous custom switch panels, warning lights, and alarms. Optional single-lever electronic controls promise smooth and responsive maneuverability, while comfortable helm and companion seats include adjustable footrests. Extra, lockable storage for tackle and accessories has been built-in under the L-shaped lounge.


The cabin of the 52 Express showcases graceful spaciousness and refined comfort, amidst the boat's hard-core fishability. The main salon of the 52 Express features a large L-shaped lounge, as well as a Bose® LS-U35 surround sound stereo system. Forward, the master stateroom accommodates a choice of an island berth or three singles. To port, a second stateroom has twin berths and a dresser. A spacious galley and two head compartments are conveniently located and fully equipped for cruising comfort. The 52 Express can also be configured for a three-stateroom layout, to provide maximum privacy for those with larger crews. This optional arrangement provides for an efficient galley / salon combo, equipped with a large settee.
