Cobalt Boats Australia says it is just a little more proud than usual of its latest offering, the Cobalt 26SD.
New to the range this year, Cobalt suggests this boat is in fact two boats: it offers the open space of a deck boat, with all the power and agility of a sport boat. The 26SD is every bit as much about skiing and wakeboarding as about quiet conversation on a leisurely cruise, says Cobalt.
With an overall length including swim platform of 8.38m and a beam of 2.59m, the 26SD is powered by a single sterndrive unit. With power options from 300hp to 430hp, Cobalt says its 26SD boasts the power and performance for enjoyable boating in all conditions and suggests the freeboard will create a ride as comfortable in coastal chop as on a mirrored lake, while a 21-degree deadrise hull with extended running surface means quickness to plane and controlled stability in turns.
Cockpit and bow alike are multi-taskers, the seating convertible every which way and storage right where you need it. From the driver's seat, the 26SD offers a clear, uninterrupted view of the dashboard from the helm seat, which offers a woodgrain dash/trim package as standard.
Additional standard features include enclosed head compartment with sink console, motorbox actuator to eliminate heavy lifting, aluminium dash panels, black leather/stainless steel steering wheel, composite helm eyebrow, custom stitching, and stainless steel switches.
Cobalt's extensive list of options allows owners to personalise their 26SD. Options include three-colour hull graphics, a choice of carpet fibres, various sound systems, a refrigerator and a stainless steel arch with bimini top.
As with all Cobalt models, the company says the 26SD cockpit is all about space and accessibility, as well as comfort, quality and luxury. There's a large sunpad with adjustable backrest and an extra-wide adjustable passenger seat. The bow has abundant seating with captain's chair armrests and stainless steel boarding ladder as standard.
The Cobalt 26SD is supported by Cobalt's 10/5/3-year warranty protection.
