The Cobalt 30SC is the perfect example of a boat built to cater to boaters and families who are looking for more than a traditional bow rider. This vessel is great for anyone who wants to island hop, enjoy watersports, or just cruise the intercoastal with friends. She comes loaded with features that are certain to please including standard twin 7” Garmin screens, large ski storage, and a filler cushion for additional cockpit seating. Bow hand rails on either side along with drink holders give passengers a safe and cozy seating area.

To say that the Cobalt 30SC is a very social boat would be an understatement. Passing through the wide dual console walk through brings you in to a spacious cockpit which offers a class leading 8’ 5” of interior real estate width for your on-water comfort. The port console offers a very spacious head compartment that is actually usable by full sized adults! It includes a molded in counter and sink, with standard Vacuuflush marine head with macerator and overboard discharge. The port side companion section has customizable seating for facing fore and aft. Moving to the helm, the contemporary dash includes aircraft inspired, stainless steel, backlit push buttons, Rockford head unit, and interior LED light controls.

Almost every seat on the Cobalt 30SC is equipped with insulated storage underneath, eliminating the need for lugging heavy coolers on and off your boat. Just grab a bag of ice, your snacks for the day and head underway. Also equipped with a countertop, freshwater sink and even more storage underneath, getting out of the sun for a quick lunch or prepping your margaritas is a pleasure.


The Cobalt 30SC  can be powered by your choice of Mercury or Yamaha four stroke outboards delivering superior durability, reliability, longevity and performance. She’ll easily reach 50mph with twin 300hp engines.

Cobalt boats set a completely new standard for strength, comfort and versatility, in the bowrider market. Years of combined experience from top engineers and craftsmen are built into each and every vessel which is why even the smallest models deliver the performance, safety and reliability usually reserved for much bigger boats. With just a glance at the shape of the hull on a Cobalt 30SC, you can immediately see the difference. A unique deeper V is apparent and necessary for clients who choose to do their boating in the Gulf. Traditionally, bowriders are more often found in fresh water, but this 30SC will slice through the salty chop of the Gulf with no problem at all. The difference in ride quality comes from the Kevlar reinforced keel and sixteen layers of handlaid fiberglass in the hull. This makes the hull essentially bullet-proof, shutter-proof, and one of the most quiet rides you will find on a bowrider.


The following equipment is standard on the Cobalt 30SC and optional on much of the competitors in its class:


Flip Down Swim Step

Double French Stitched Interiors

Customizable port passenger seating

Dual Batteries w/ ACR

Glass Cockpit and Twin Garmin 7607

Vacuflush Head



Whether exploring Tampa Bay or the navigating the Gulf coast, the Cobalt 30SC is a most willing and capable partner.
