Cabo Yachts' new 44 Hardtop Express replaces the builder's popular 45 Express, which was introduced a dozen years ago. The company says the new boat is designed for fishing but with the comforts of an express cruiser.
It features a three-sided enclosure with an integrated hardtop, mezzanine seating, improved visibility from the helm, a full-length galley counter against the aft bulkhead, more fish storage and an optional second stateroom or an angler's room.
"We felt the need to come to the market with a real game-changer," vice president of sales Don Smith says. "And this is it."
Price: $1.049 million with twin 1,015-hp Caterpillar C-18 diesels; $949,000 with standard 715-hp Cummins diesels.
