    43 Owner

    I have been on both. Own a well travelled 43. 43 is faster, rides better up hill and has a better bridge lay-out. I can't speak to ride at anchor comment but have been in conditions form Channel Islands to Frailles and have never had any complaints. Love the boat and chose it over the 47.

    MBY, I believe I am looking at the exact boat your father cut 2 feet off the back and extended. I'm curious if that is possible? Though the hull indemnification number says the boat is a 2006 which I know the 47 footers were no longer made at that time, I believe it was given to someone and complete it by them at some point. If you would be able to shine any information on that I would really appreciate it

    We built 47 hull #3 as a test boat that we fit with 800 Man's and had a gutted interior. To my knowledge once we finished testing the boat it was sold as essentially a one off to a customer who installed his own interior. This was the only Cabo that we ever did that wasn't finished at the factory. The gentleman that bought the boat was a very good craftsman and did the service work for one of our dealers in the Northeast so we were comfortable with him finishing the boat. As for the hull ID, 47 #3 was a 2000 or 2001 boat.

    Thank you so much for the quick response, I believe the boat owner is Kevin up in the Cape Cod area. He is an extremely talented craftsman and his interior work was wonderful. Is there any chance I can get more information on the boat itself? I'm just curious if there is someone knowledgeable that I could talk to you briefly prior to finalizing my deal
