Left, Shane Stanfill, president of Cobalt Boats, discusses the manufacturing processes with Congressman Marshal during the facility tour.

Last week, Cobalt Boats hosted Roger Marshall, U.S. Congressman from Kansas, who toured the boat manufacturer’s headquarters with company executives and associates. The congressman set up the visit after Cobalt was selected as a “Made in America” business by President Trump and invited to a White House celebration in late July.

Marshall and his military affairs staff member, Tyler Mason, followed their tour with a meeting with Shane Stanfill, president of Cobalt, where they learned about the company’s plant expansion.

“Growing up on Kansas’ El Dorado Lake, I cannot remember a better looking boat than Cobalt,” Marshall said in a statement. “Built in Neodesha, Cobalt Boats has set the standard for American-made boats for over 50 years, producing quality product, from beginning to end, right here in Kansas. I appreciated the opportunity to tour the facility and meet the great folks at Cobalt.”

Stanfill said he was pleased to host the congressman. “In addition to providing him with details about our employment numbers and the manufacturing processes, we were able to show him how important the interpersonal connection between our people is to our success, especially with their shared commitment to doing great work every day,” he said in the statement.
