Cabo Rico Northeast 450: A Mini Review
The second motorsailer design from Cabo Rico comes from Sparkman & Stephens, a firm with long term experience in motorsailer design. This is not a powerboat with sails nor an overpowered sailboat, but a truly functional boat under either sail or power. The aft cockpit has all sail controls and plenty of seating for fine weather. In not so fine weather, the pilothouse/saloon area protects you from cold rain or blistering sun, extending your cruising season no matter where you sail. The layout below is perfect for a couple living aboard for extended periods. There is a big cabin, spacious head, full galley and a second cabin that is designed to be a den but can convert quickly to a double cabin.
