2006 Cabo 48 Convertible


Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
  • 3 Staterooms
  • 2 Heads
  • 2 Engines

This 2006 48 Cabo Flybridge Yacht - Ranchero, is a stunner at the dock and at sea. With her Awlcraft 2000 Aristo Blue hull paint job in 2017, and a full-time Captain and crew she stands at the top of her competition in condition. Much of the gelcoat crazing these Cabo Yachts are known for has been repaired/ repainted and the cockpit non-skid has been beautifully and professionally re- finished. She was designed to be adventurous with extended fuel and upgraded Caterpillar C-18 1015 HP engines. This yacht boasts a versatile layout for hard core fishing or easy cruising with three cabins and two heads capable of accommodating multiple families. Four drawer style refrigerators, and a large storage/utility area beneath the galley sole she can be provisioned for extended trips with ease. Ranchero’s slip at IGY Cabo San Lucas is transferrable to her next owner.

  • Eskimo Ice chipper
  • Water Maker- Sea Recovery
  • Under water light
  • Bluewater fighting chair and custom rocket launcher
  • Fusion Sound system/ JL Audio speakers and subs
