BRP signs engine deal with Cobalt Boats
Cobalt Boats’ Marker One Platform Series of deck and pontoon boats will now come equipped with BRP’s Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines.
“We’re proud to rig the Marker One Platform Series with the all-new Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine,” Gavan Hunt, Cobalt Boats vice president of sales and marketing, said in a statement. “The power and efficiency of the Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard delivers the torque and fuel economy our customers demand. The added bonus of BRP’s customizable engine panels aligns perfectly with Marker One’s Design Your Dream vision, as well. This isn’t your typical pontoon, and that’s why we’re rigging with an outboard that stands out on the transom.”
The Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine offers more than 400 color options.
“The pontoon boating segment is growing, and we’re committed to meeting this increased demand with unique products to perfectly match each application,” said Alain Villemure, vice president and general manager of BRP’s Marine Propulsion Systems division.
“Whether the Evinrude E-TEC Pontoon Series, specifically designed to enhance acceleration and throttle response, or the all-new Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine, with best-in-class torque for performance-minded consumers, we have what they want,” Villemure said. “This partnership with Cobalt Boats further reinforces our commitment to bring the power of choice to as many consumers as possible.”
Cobalt’s lineup includes runabouts and cruisers ranging from 20 to 36 feet, and now includes the new Marker One Platform Series, which can be rigged with the Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard.

We Did It Our Way: A Review on the Marker One M27
Boating World Magazine is
known for keeping us all posted on the latest boating news. From boat testing
and reviews to industry updates and Q&A's, this renowned publication
embodies the passion of its readers and shares with us all the need-to-know-now
information regarding the boating lifestyle.
Let’s begin, shall we? When Boating World Magazine set out to test our M27, we were thrilled at first plane. We knew they would love this Platform
for so many reasons. And that they did!
First, as any seasoned boater
would notice, the ride was impeccable. The M27 stood true to her nature.
Smooth. Quiet. “The arrangement yields plenty of lift and helps the M27 ride
high in the water to scoot over the chop in style, making it a good choice for
larger bodies of water,” noted the magazine. And duly noted was her performance
– “Anyone who has been on one of the builder’s runabouts or yachts would
recognize this helm’s Cobaltiness: dark, double-stitched dash, eyebrow and
leather-wrapped wheel. The windshield, bracketed with stainless steel posts, is
made of real glass instead of the usual plastic bubble. The doublewide helm
seat invites the copilot to join the captain, and the flip-up bolster is just
what you would see on a regular Cobalt.”
It wasn’t to our surprise that
they pointed out those special features aboard as well. This M27 was fully
loaded with our top-of-the-line Yeti cooler, optional port-side galley and
sink, as well as the endless number of cupholders. But above all, like true
Cobalt fashion, our upholstery took the eyes of all in her
path. “Ultra-wide seat bottoms and three reversible seatbacks yield lots of
space and options for lounging, sunning and sitting.”

No Shortcuts in 2015
The 2015 model year has already kicked off to a great start. Cobalt Boats has introduced the highly anticipated R7 Water Sports Series (WSS) as well as a new S-interior option for the 200. These exciting debuts made their appearance at the 2015 Dealer Meeting held in the fall.
The R7 WSS is every watersports enthusiast’s dream. Standing fully prepared to fulfill demands of wakeboarding, wakeskating, or any and all watersport activities, this package exhibits outstanding athleticism and style. “This boat is the perfect combination of stern drive excellence and a water-sport towing machine,” says Gavan Hunt, VP of Sales and Marketing. The addition of the R7 to the WSS series makes a great addition to our product offering, the tremendous interior beam synced with the WSS package will undoubtedly become an industry benchmark.
This ultimate bowrider sports new exterior graphics and a unique R model arch with billet wakeboard racks. The WSS-specific trim throughout the upholstery and dash, provides an aggressive look to the cockpit. As with any of Cobalt’s WSS sport boats, the new R7 WSS is showcased by the chrome WSS badge at the transom. A feature that provides a custom highlight, worthy of gloat. “The R7 WSS has already surpassed our initial projections. We can’t wait to see more from this industry-leading boat.”
Encompassing style, convenience and comfort, the 200-S interior is also new to the 2015 lineup. This versatile seating arrangement combines an oversized layout with amazing performance. The passenger seat can be positioned in a traditional, forward-facing manner, then quickly and easily flipped down, transforming the cockpit into a massive arena-style seating arrangement. “In addition, the 200-S includes an in-floor ski locker for convenient storage, which is also an added bonus” Hunt adds. And to top it off, the 200-S interior utilizes every square inch of space, maximizing your ability to bring aboard every necessity for a fun day on the water.
