Hatteras/Cabo Yachts said it plans to relaunch the Cabo brand. A Cabo 41 will be introduced at the 2019 Miami International Boat Show.
“In 2013, the decision was made to focus on building the Hatteras Yachts brand by making a major investment in developing its new models,” said Kelly Grindle, Hatteras/Cabo CEO in a statement. “Now, we feel the market conditions are right to bring back the proven Cabo line of hard-core fishing boats.”
Grindle said that recent consumer research shows a “strong affinity” for the Cabo brand. “Cabo ranks as one of the top brands for quality and reliability,” he said. “We intend to build on this well-deserved reputation as we fill a growing demand in the marketplace for inboard offshore, express-style fishing boats.”
The Cabo 41 will have twin 626hp Volvo D11 engines as standard power, with upgrades available to 670hp and 725hp, as well as Cummins QSM11 propulsion.
Hatteras/Cabo has already started a new dealer network for Cabo among Hatteras dealers and other dealers that focus on the offshore fishing category. The new 41 will be built at its New Bern facility. Grindle said a new line of Cabo boats is under development.
