Digest — July 2004
By Capt. Patrick Sciacca
At nine degrees latitude and with generally calm seas, the Los Sueños Marina is great for an open boat, too. Enter Cabo Yachts’ Los Sueños Edition sportfisherman series.
After You is a 45-foot Express that has been modified for this tropical climate. Unlike your standard Cabo Express, the windshields have been removed for this series, so when you’re cruising at 30-plus knots, the warm tropical breeze washes over you whether you’re at the helm or resting on the bridge deck. In addition, the vessel is accented with a teak caprail that outlines the bridge deck. Since you’re not too far from the equator here, air conditioning is a necessity, not an option, and After You is armed with about 30,000 Btus. Other neat features include a sleek, stainless steel bowrail and tower.
This boat also sports Cabo trademarks like a wiring system second to none and transom gate for hauling in your IGFA record fish. And yes, all the screws line up on these Cabos, just like they do on the regular Cabos.
The Los Sueños Edition boats were designed for this area, but any warm climate will do. For more information about this series, contact Ashley Bretecher at (011) 506-637-8886 ext. 1075, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. —P.S.
