1988 Cabo Cuddycon 216
Just finished a complete overhaul/modernization
Boat is 21 ft 6 inches with an 8 ft beam
The following has been changed, and have only 9 hours on them:
1999 Yamaha OX66 200 hp built by Franzen marine under warranty until January
Custom built 105 gallon aluminum fuel tank
New fuel fill and vent hoses plus all new fuel lines to the motor
New servicable fuel/water separator
Complete rewire the right way
Foam around gas tank removed
Limber holes for every compartment added and sealed
2 New interstate batteries under warranty
2 bank onboard battery charger under warranty
2 New bait well pumps
New hydraulic steering lines
New salt water washdown
New bronze through hull for washdown
New bilge pump
New accurate fuel sender
New multifunction guage
New hour meter when motor was replaced
New Lowrance hds-7 gen 2 touchscreen with lss-2 package
4 New speakers for high power Clarion stereo - sounds great
All teak replaced with starboard - this is a fishing boat, I want to fish not polish teak
All safety/navigation lights replaced and new wires run
Bluetooth module added
power port for cell phones/laptops etc I use it for a hand held spotlight when fishing at night.
Twin transducers with basic nmea 2000 network
4 bow bimini with westmark cover and quick releases
Brand new high pressure fuel pump and spark plugs after breakin was complete
Trailer is an Owens ans Son with recarpeted bunks, new lights, new wires, new jack,
twin torsion axles and functioning surge brakes. ** New trailer see below**
Rear turnbuckle tie downs added and heavy safety chain added, 4 bearing buddys added
The Cabo has a HUGE amount of storage/compartments:
2 25 gallon lifewells with lights
2 fishboxes that run the length of the cockpit, @8 ft by 14 in by 12 in
Large comparment between live wells, I keep muffs and washdown hose there and it is basically empty
Twin coolers under rear seat
Large comparment under console that hold both batteries and charger
More storage under front seat
3 large storage bin in the cuddy which also has twin berths and its own lighting
Anchor locker which holds a 16 lb Dansforth and 125 ft on anchor line with 6 feet of chain and still has space for a backup
@16 rod holders spread throughout the boat
Boat is pretty fast and surprisingly efficient, trimmed right, best cruise will get you @3 mpg, thats a 300 mile range
with 100 gallons of fuel and 650 lbs of humans and a little gear, she does 45 mph, with a lighter load she will probably do 50 but I have not tried.
Prop was changed to a stainless 4 blade, works great and jumps on plane very easily
Handles the rough stuff very well and is fast enough to get you out of trouble.
I had the third through hull added, (bottom was right at an inch thick where the hole was made) so each live well has its own, as does the washdown pump.
All work was prefessionally done, with receipts to back it up
Boat is in exceptional condition, stainless looks great, gelcoat looks great, no soft spots anywhere boat needs nothing
and should provide years of reliable service if you keep up with the maintenance.
No bottom paint ever on this boat
Already have been asked why I'm selling it, in a year I have put 16 hours on it, just not enough fishing time, I still enjoy it but would be better off with a project to tinker with
and this one is totally done.
**Have just added a brand new load rite trailer, will post pictures shortly**
Trailer drove from Atlanta to Sarasota then I bought it, 500 miles on it.
Price is dropped to 17k firm - I leave early in july so if you want it, better hurry!
Old trailer is sold
Boat is under my car port in Sarasota and inspections/sea trials are welcome
