Cobalt Boats unveils 2015 lineup


Cobalt Boats introduced its new R7 Water Sports Series and a new S-interior option for the 200 at its 2015 dealer meeting this fall.

The R7 WSS is designed to meet the demands of wakeboarding, wakeskating and other watersports activities.

“This boat is the perfect combination of sterndrive excellence and a water-sport towing machine,” sales and marketing vice president Gavan Hunt said in a statement. “The combination of the R7, which has shown great success in the 23- to 27-foot bowrider segment, thanks to its tremendous interior beam, synced with the WSS package will undoubtedly become an industry benchmark.”

The bowrider features new graphics and an R model arch with added wakeboard racks. The WSS-specific trim is throughout the upholstery and dash. “The R7 WSS has already surpassed our initial projections. We can’t wait to see more from this industry-leading boat,” Hunt said.

The 200-S interior is also new to the 2015 lineup. The passenger seat can be positioned in a traditional, forward-facing manner or flipped down to transform the cockpit into an arena-style seating arrangement.

“In addition, the 200-S includes an in-floor ski locker for convenient storage, which is also an added bonus,” Hunt said.

Cobalt Boats and Marker One will be attending the Miami International Boat Show Feb. 12-16 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Visitors will get an opportunity to see some of the newest models to date, including the Marker One M27.

Models scheduled to be on display include the new Cobalt A40, 336, 302, A28, R5, R7, 24SD, 26SD and the Marker One M27.
