Stepping Up in Style
There is nothing that speaks beauty more soundly than the timeless good taste of Cobalt craftsmanship. From the finely detailed upholstery to the durable carpet options, to the accessorized dash and superior get coat, Cobalt has a niche for creating classy, sophisticated off-road vehicles. Not to mention the features that adorn the interior.
Adding to this array of jaw-dropping features are our new ultra-plush and stylishly chic pillows. Carefully sewn and hand stitched by our team of upholstery gurus, these accent pillows add not only a homey and cozy feel, but also create a comfortable sitting arrangement for those looking for a curl-up-and-read type of evening ride.
The pillow colors are as follows: Midnight Blue – a solid, deep navy; Walnut – a dark brown with subtle pinstripes; Graphite – black and grey alternating stripes with white metallic fine lines, Crimson Red – a vibrant cherry with gold vertical accent striping, and Cocoa – a taupe monochromatic striping.The pillows are covered in Sunbrella fabric and filled with four pounds of Vyram weighted pellets.
The Captain’s helm also features a new dash color. This optional Grey dash trim package complements our existing Tahoe Grey interior. As a 2015 upgrade option, this new color choice adds a splash of color and texture to the already modern physique on the dash panel. The stainless steel accents and leather wrapped steering wheel really pop against this new color option.
Contact your local dealer for more details regarding these updates.

Marker One Wins 2015 Top Product by Boating Industry
Boating Industry magazine released its annual listing of the top products in the boating industry where you’ll find a wide variety of products from boats to accessories, from engines to apps. These products were all introduced or significantly updated since the beginning of 2014. From hundreds of nominations, they were chosen based on many factors such as their impact on the industry, innovation and how they advanced their category.
Here is what they had to say about our latest innovation.
"The Marker One Platform Series was designed to be unlike an ordinary pontoon. The Marker One Platform Series starts with the three hulls all working in harmony with the lifting strakes, chines and a keel. Bolted to the fiberglass deck through a stringer system, the wood-free base separates itself from the foundation construction on other pontoons. Marker One’s patent pending power wedge means that the deck maintains a level feel even with the maximum horsepower engine astern. Marker One utilizes a fiberglass design providing significant sound and vibration dampening."
We are honored to receive this award among all the other successful innovations out there in the industry. Marker One has proven to be not only a great boat, but also a one-of-kind trendsetter leading the way in platform boating.
