Spotlight On – Cobalt Boats

On some exclusive lakes it seems like owning a Cobalt is a zoning law.  No wonder the company is a five-time winner of the J.D. Power Award for large runabouts.  Cobalt Boats have been known for most of their 40 years in business as, in a class by themselves.  Not only is the fit and finish of these boats as good as you will find anywhere on any size boat, but below the surface their boats are lavished with the same attention to detail – and quality. For example, the company uses special composite materials in all of their transoms, and the hulls are reinforced with Kevlar. Only the highest grade stainless, wiring and fasteners are used, to mention a few items, all of which make the boats premium priced – but according to the J.D. Power sampling, worth every penny. Go to their website and get chapter and verse on all of their MSRP pricing.

Their boats range from 20' to 35', and larger yachts are on the way. Below are the models we've tested, click on them to review and compare.
