With this modification, you’ll find it easier than ever to immerse yourself into the culture and style of being on a boat as everything is recreated to match the attention to detail and unique scope of realism that FSX brings to the table when comes to the aircraft you fly typically.
The boat itself has been based on the real Cabo 45, so you will be provided with the same size and style as the original. This boat itself is actually 45ft in length, 17ft in width and 39ft in height (including the fishing rods) making it a particularly large boat for small-scale fishing operations
It has a 4ft draft, too, ensuring that it’s nice and balanced in the water whilst you make your way through the sea. This makes it a whole lot simpler to control the boat as it is when using some of the models with less precise and balanced drafts
600 gal. of fuel have been added in there, too. This makes a massive difference in terms of helping you get around and see the world as a whole – you’ll not be likely to run out of fuel when you are making a journey with this particularly large quantity being provided
A maximum speed of 35 knots which can be a big improvement for those who are struggling to make the kind of speed they were hoping for in other similarly sized fishing boats. This is a fairly nimble boat for a fishing edition, so it’s particularly fast in comparison to many of its competitors on the market
2 x MAN 800 HPm engines are provided to make sure you have the pre-requisite thrust to get yourself moving to the location that you need to go to, making it very easy to get around the place using this professional fishing boat
2 x one touch switches to help you get the engines roaring and get yourself moving across the waters nice and quickly, also ensuring that you are able to get to where you need to be with relative ease without having to delay the travel process too much when starting
More than 115MB of high-end data included in here for ease of use and simplicity, making it easier than ever before to manage your vehicle as you’ll have so many new features included to match the high quality of the models and the various other systems that have been added
Now, you can finally take control of the sea as well as the air. With this add-on, you will be provided with a full boat interface that takes over from the original and highly acclaimed flight sim features that make FSX so popular in the first place. With this mod, you can easily take to the seas and control a large fishing boat
3D gauges and switches to help you get the perfect look within the cockpit, but also so that you can easily see what is in need of your attention. These highly detailed gauges and designs make it far simpler to be attentive to your ship’s needs, making it very easy to have a nice and comfortable flight that’s easily manageable regardless of where you intend to go and check out
Highly detailed and rendered textures that look excellent regardless of what graphical detail you are using – each part of the graphics also fit perfectly with the overall dimensions and style of the real Cabo, ensuring that you have something that looks just as it should
One main model with four specific varieties is included to give you a nice balance in not just the performance, but the style and the overall look of the vehicle as well. Give yourself the help needed to really immerse in being at sea with these models
A range of equipment lies across the deck with all full-standard Cabo equipment included across the boat. This makes a big difference in terms of helping you feel immersed within the surroundings, and makes the boat itself feel a whole lot more comfortable than before
A variety of moving parts that adds to the realism and the style of the journey in so many ways. Moving parts include things such as the rudder, the throttle, the GPS list, the compass lift, the radar, the various gauges and switches and also the door
This package comes with a huge attention to detail in terms of what you have access over controlling, too. by giving you access to altering the speed, the reverse, the turns and leans with absolute ease you will find it very simple to control this boat and ensure it’s going in the right direction for whatever journey you have planned for the day!
A whole range of high-end documentation is included so that you never have to be in any doubt about where you are going or what you need to do when using a specific part of the boat. Everything in here will give you simple and effective guides for using this
2 virtual cockpits are added in, as well, so that you can easily access the range of 3D gauges, switches and instruments to make sure you can use the vehicle as quality as possible. If you are looking to have total control over every little aspect of the journey itself then the virtual cabin is perfect for your requirements

Cabo 45 Express Fishing Yacht is an add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator X. The boats in this pack were designed by the watercraft designer Deltasim. These boats are perfect recreations of the real life thing. Taking a different path from exploring areas by air, this version for Flight Simulator X takes place entirely at sea. This is a 45 foot luxury yacht that comes complete with every single detail you'd imagine.
Everything is incredibly lifelike and the water looks amazing. You can really take in the sights here. And once you find that perfect spot then you can enjoy your day on the water. The boat has a GPS on it to make sure you know exactly where you are going. Even though this pack comes with one boat, there are many options to customize it to make sure you get just the right look that you want.
There are four different variations on the model that's included. Even though this is a fishing boat, it will be easy enough to get lost in the scenery, from the wide open sea, to the rivers and canals. It really makes you feel like you are there instead of at a computer.
There is great attention to detail on the boat. Every foot of it is rendered beautifully, and everything is very lifelike and fluid in its motion. The controls to the boat are in full 3D and you can either control it through the cockpit or from outside just to watch the boat sail and take in the scenery. The animations are very fluid and there is little to no slowdown at all, which makes this perfect for any and all computers.
This package is perfect to take a trip, enjoy the water, and spend the day in luxury without actually having to go out.
