Cobalt introduces 30-foot outboard-powered boat

The Cobalt 30SC is the third new model in a series of outboard-powered bowriders. Cobalt said that it wanted to combine the luxury the company is known for with the quiet performance and efficiency of modern outboards.

             The 30SC can be powered by up to twin 350-hp outboards from Mercury or Yamaha.

The hull has been designed specifically for outboards and it’s built with hand-applied laminates, Kevlar reinforcement in high-stress areas and Cobalt’s exclusive barrier coat.

Depending on the power, Cobalt said the boat should cruise at speeds in the upper 50-mph range. A side step facilitate boarding from a dock and the patented swim platform has below-the-waterline with stainless-steel grips.

The cockpit is designed with flexible seating to accommodate small or large crowds.
