Cobalt was the first sterndrive builder to feature the walk-thru transom.
Today, all Cobalt models are equipped with either a single or dual aft passageway for easy boarding.

Across five decades, Cobalt brought innovative functionality to the marketplace. Across five decades, other marine manufacturers have seen fit to copy the thoughtful design that has always defined Cobalt boats. Again this year, Cobalt will show an entire industry exactly the way to go.

• Cobalt first: the integrated bow eye with a scuff plate for protection from trailer marks.
• Cobalt was the first sterndrive builder to feature the walk-thru transom, today, all Cobalt models are equipped with either a single or dual aft passageway for easy boarding.
• Stainless-steel adjustable poles to secure and tighten bimini tops with Cobalt innovative built-in turnbuckle — no fabric straps here.
• Quick-release fender clips utilize stainless steel sockets for perfect placement and convenient deployment.
• Cushioned storage lids with double-knuckled hinges to hold the lids open for easy access to the compartment below.
• Cobalt often-imitated, never-duplicated flip-lip seat bolster – the captain sits high and comfortable, enjoying the full thrill of the ride.
• A safer latch for the windshield walk-thru, holding the door securely open – yet another Cobalt first.
• Perhaps the most imitated component of performance in the boating industry, Cobalt’s extended running surface for quicker planing, firm and true turns, minimized bow rise, and greater lift at the stern.

The instrumentation and its mountings borrow from aircraft and jewelry designers alike.
Glance at any cockpit and witness the full effect of a Cobalt interior – straight, smooth, uniform, and very, very good looking.

The technical word is “interface,” those sensory exchanges between boat and owner, those points of contact so fundamental to the enjoyment of a day on the water, so critical to the determination of a boat’s long-term value. Glance at any cockpit and witness the full effect of a Cobalt interior – straight, smooth, uniform, and very, very good looking. Better yet, cruise a Cobalt at first opportunity for some meaningful, memorable interfacing of your own.

Start at the helm, where strength meets stylish strength. Rock-solid fiberglass substructure rides beneath upholstered good looks, as optional Ebony Macassar trim adorns the helm’s metal panels. The instrumentation and its mountings borrow from aircraft and jewelry designers alike. Stainless steel switch mechanisms are firm, sure, and sturdy.

Cobalt upholstery involves the fingers.
Butter-soft and bull-strong, as tactile as they’re easy on the eye, always double-fastened with both adhesives and staples, and stitched with meticulous precision.

Cobalt upholstery involves the fingers. Butter-soft and bull-strong, as tactile as they’re easy on the eye, always double-fastened with both adhesives and staples, and stitched with meticulous precision. Underfoot, the carpet or optional Seagrass flooring is snap-down/snap-out, rubber-backed, backed again with skid resistant no-flex composite flooring under all, and heavy. Heavy far beyond any marine standard.

• Z-Thane™ strengthening, protective barrier coat in the hull – A Cobalt exclusive.
• Completely hand-laid hulls, reinforced with Kevlar™.
• Composite construction on all structural components.
• Cushioned lids with knuckled hinges for easy, open access to storage compartments large and larger still.
• Exceptional hardware, largely stainless, over-sized, over-strong.
• Graphics deep and strong in the gelcoat.
• Integrated bow eye with a scuff plate for added protection.
• Hand-lamination, up to 16 alternating layers of fiberglass mat and woven roving.
