Belowdecks, Cabo rises to new heights of functionality and comfort. The galley, positioned across the aft cabin bulkhead, provides a huge salon with a convertible six-seat settee that doubles as a dinette to port. Additionally, since the galley doesn't take up one side, the head is located between the master, with its island queen berth, and the guest staterooms. This provides more privacy than boats where the staterooms share a bulkhead. My test boat featured under/over berths in the guest stateroom, but Cabo showed me plans for a revised layout that uses this space as a tackle room, complete with rod racks, a workbench and a leaping billfish etched in backlit glass. Whichever you choose, the 44 HTX's cabin rivals the amenity and luxury of dedicated cruising yachts with its teak sole, book-matched cabinetry, solid surface vanities and counters, all bathed in tons of natural light, thanks to the multitude of skylights and deck hatches overhead.
