As one enters the cabin there is a comfort seat to port, with louvered lockers and a hanging closet. There is a hatch above the berth, with a solar fan to ensure continuous ventilation. Just aft of the cabin is the separate shower and head. There is a sink and mirrored medicine chest above,locker storage and an opening SS porthole. The head is a Raritan PH II. Access to the separate shower stall is through the louvered door. There is a seat, and water is drained with a pump.

Cabo Rico has quietly become known as one of the finest producers of blue water boats, and this is one of their classic designs that has withstood the test of time. The cockpit is compact and safe, ensuring that the occupants remain comfortable. The decks are wide and easy to move on, and the shrouds are out of the way outboard. There are safety bars around the mast to ensure one's comfort and safety when working forward, as well as grab handles all the way forward. The owner has also put on a Boombrake as a Gybe-preventer. It is evident that the boat is outfitted for safe shorthanded sailing, which the current enjoys.

The Westerbeke has proven to be reliable and starts every time. It is a lower revving engine, which produces the necessary torque but is fuel-efficient. The oil is changed every 75 hours, fuel filters are replaced every 100 hours, and the fuel tank is kept at least 90% full. The transmission was replaced new in 2007, and the raw water pump was replaced in 2010. There is the "quick change" impellor housing with brass thumb screws to facilitate the change. The cutlass bearing was replaced in 2009.

This boat is outfitted for someone who wants to go sailing on a regular basis, whether it is short day sailing, overnight trips, or long passages. The critical structural items have been maintained, replaced or upgraded. A good example of this is the replacement of cable steering with EDSON ROD steering. It is a durable system which does not stretch or jump sheaves. The standing rigging was replaced in 2007, reducing the risk of rig failure substantially. There are numerous redundancies, including the A/P, monitor steering, and of course the wheel itself. There are numerous spares, including a complete and running engine and transmission. The seller is willing to assist in delivery of the vessel to most East Coast locations.

The owner had expected to keep the boat, and did not anticipate the terror his wife feels when heeling. Hence, a catamaran is now on his radar, and he is willing to let the boat go to new horizons.
