This is an extraordinary opportunity to own a Cabo Yacht.  This 45 was custom built for the original owner as a "fishing machine".   A true fishing boat with proven performance and reliability. Owner is ready to sell and will entertain all reasonable offers

"Power Play" has many upgrades starting with a 2002 front windshield with much improvedvisibility; upgraded wipers with fresh water. The owner replaced the MMC electric controls withGlendinning electrically assisted controls as are in the 2002 Cabos. If the power shuts off youhave a manual clutch and throttle cables; they are all electric and can be shifted with onefinger... NICE!!! Shaft savers isolate engine and gear noise from the boat, huge differenceoutside; a major plus for fish raising and most especially the noise reduction down below!!1000 gallons of fuel verses the 800 that is standard - allows for extra range!
