I won’t bore you with yet another rendition of the history of Cabo Yachts. Suffice it to say they’ve been at the top of the sailing and sport-fishing pecking order for many years, and each successive introduction of a new model simply cements that position.

The 42 flybridge’s cockpit modules contain all the usual features, such as a sink, a bait freezer, a refrigerated drink box, and tackle storage. You’ll also find a large, lighted baitwell in the transom. Cabos are proven fish raisers (just look at their history of tournaments won), so the company provides large in-deck fish boxes to port and starboard.

You’ll feel secure both fishing and wiring, as the cockpit coaming hit me just above the knee. Resting my chest on the coaming, I could just touch the water’s surface, so releasing fish should present no problem.

I found the flybridge ladder particularly impressive. I’m not fond of climbing ladders when my hands are wet in a heavy sea, so a better ladder design makes me happy. To Cabo’s credit, climbing up and down the flybridge ladder could hardly feel more secure. The angle and rung spacing, deck hole and handholds are all perfect. And you can come down frontward or backward with equal ease, so if you need to get to the cockpit in a hurry when a fish strikes, you stand a greater chance of getting there safely.
