Cobalt Boats recognizes top dealers at annual meeting


More than 400 dealers from across the United States, Canada and other international locations participated in Cobalt Boats’ Sept. 11-13 worldwide dealer meeting at The Chateau on the Lake Resort and Spa on Table Rock Lake in Missouri.

“We are fortunate to have almost 100 percent attendance from our dealer partners, and we appreciate them taking a few days out of their schedules to attend our meeting,” Cobalt CEO Paxson St. Clair said in a statement.

“This year we welcomed not only a huge percentage of our domestic dealers, but were pleased to have dealers from Canada, Europe, South Africa and Latin America. The meeting was the world premiere of three new Cobalt models and two new Marker One Platform Series models. Our dealer partners are enthusiastic about the prospects of the upcoming selling season, including the addition of the Marker One brand.”
