The R30 provides comfort and luxury that have been a Cobalt signature for more than 50 years. Cobalt designed the R30 with all the features and options that boaters are looking for when moving up from smaller, single-engine sport boats. Capable of being powered with either twin engine, or single engine setup, Cobalt’s R30 is a sleek, spacious bowrider that possesses tremendous amounts of storage throughout her 9’6” beam and 30’ 8” LOA.

In a single engine configuration, the Volvo-Penta 430hp pushes the R30 on plane quickly, with a top speed above 50mph. Should you want extra horsepower, you can opt for the twin engine configuration, which also allows for optional Volvo-Penta Joystick Docking Controls, or MerCruiser’s Axius Joystick System.

The Cobalt R30 comes standard with a hydraulic swim platform, spacious head complete with Vaccuflush toilet and 9 gallon holding tank, as well as twin Garmin glass cockpit screens. For those sunny Florida boating days, the option full beam hardtop and extending sunshade provide ample area to relax and take a break from the sun. The cockpit on Cobalt’s R30 is outfitted with scuppers that drain overboard, and cavernous storage throughout the boat. Combine all these amenities with Cobalt’s Kevlar reinforced, hand-laid fiberglass hull, fiberglass stringers, and composite transom, you have a luxury boat that will provide you and your family the first-class boating experience you’re looking for.
