Good news everyone! I just spoke with Fraser Smith at Cabo Rico in Florida
. They are just about to re-open production of their boats at a new factory in Costa Rica that is quite near to their old one. It is a more modern and elaborate facility and they are employing most of the experienced craftsmen that worked with them before. They are, indeed, partnering with Covey Island Boatworks in Nova Scotia
in order to have a North American East Coast
distribution. fitting, and repair facility. Cabo Rico will be taking orders for all of their boats except the CR38. The CR56 will now be offered in a center-cockpit ketch-rigged version that Fraser is sending me drawings of. So we should be seeing some beautiful, new Cabo Rico yachts launching in 2014. Excellent!
