Welcome to Talbot Freeman & Associates, Inc.!

Talbot Freeman & Associates, Inc. image Talbot Freeman & Associates, Inc. (TFA Yachts) was founded on simple principles and backed by over 28 years of yacht sales, yacht ownership, total yacht management, major yacht refit consultation, Marine Finance and Marine Insurance claim management, hands on yacht operational experience, and efficient yacht purchase and sale abilities accumulated by its founder and CEO, Talbot O. Freeman III. Originally based in Portland, Maine in 1987 Talbot moved his base operations to downtown Ft. Lauderdale Florida a.k.a. "Yachting Capital of the World" in 1992 and has been very active in the South Florida Yacht Sales arena ever since specializing in large quality built Motor Yachts and Convertible fisherman. Mr. Freeman comes from 150 years of New England boat building heritage and the famous "Morse" shipbuilding family of Bath, Maine. This family heritage included the building of many famous "Coastal Schooners" and largest Steamships of the era from Maine at the turn of the century. Talbot's direct family built the famous 1930 SV "Brilliant" Schooner now owned by the Mystic Seaport Museum.

With career sales over $400 Million and two offices (Ft Lauderdale, Florida and Coastal Maine), TFA Yachts is geared up to assist you with all your yachting requirements while remaining small enough to provide very dedicated personalized services to each client. Talbot Freeman & Associates, Inc. was formed to provide all aspects of sales and service to the yachting public without compromise. Talbot, the founder and President, has always held himself and his staff to the simple philosophy of "do what you love, do it well, and share your knowledge and experience for the benefit of each client". Helping each client through every step of yacht ownership and ensuring that their experience is a pleasurable one is the simple key to our success. Specializing in high quality new and per-owned yachts of all sizes, TFA provides first class, professional service to the yachting public in the areas of new and used yacht brokerage, new construction, total refitting of classic yachts, yacht management, marine financing, insurance, charter, and effective vessel re marketing.

45' Cabo 45 Express
2009 US$ 849,000

This "one of a kind" outstanding California CABO is one of the very last built and is powered by the preferred Cat C-18 1015hp with CAT Platinum Plus warranties to July of 2017 and only 800 original hours.

This highly customized CABO 45 Express with Mezzanine has powder blue hull and matching hard top with Pipewelders Marlin tower. It features the 2 stateroom layout with extra large head and Deluxe interior by Shelly in 2014. A one of a kind custom Mezzanine designed by Talbot Freeman & Assoc. was created by Marinemax, Dania in late 2014 to put this CABO ahead of all the others. Teak decking with Sound Down insulation beneath the teak was added to entire helm, mezzanine steps, and side steps further adding to the beauty and class of this one of a kind CABO 45 while also lowering the engine noise inside the helm area! The S shaped custom in deck fish box cleverly conforms to the port mezzanine step design. The helm area has new enclosure, additional Stidd passenger chairs with custom step, custom powder coated light blue overhead hand rails, ample Air cond, ice maker / Fridge, and extensive storage. A custom Mezzanine seat incorporates a ingenious engine room entry door, fully insulated that blends into the design.  

Once aboard this 45 Cabo you could swear that it is brand new inside and out, without the new boat shake down required. The attention to detail and maintenance is second to none. Twin Furuno screens, Cat engine displays, triple Stidd chairs, Veem Props with Interceptors, new bait freezer, New Mattresses, New EZ2CY, New Carpet and Wallcoverings, custom salon handrail, all add to the beauty of this high class fishing machine. Yacht Controller (2014) provides mobile control to support fishing/docking, etc.

Be the first to own this one of a kind custom CABO. She is turn key ready with warranties and the last of her kind from the renowned California CABO Yachts. Hatteras staff has already crawled all over this custom 45 to get better ideas for their 45 express series.
