This boat has been proven to induce over-zealous responses from its owners. Everyone take a deep breath as we proceed.

Even lifelong bowrider folks are choosing the 243, having seen its dragsteresque acceleration, its Indy-car handling at top speeds, especially in the company of Cobalt hallmarks of value, in features both standard and optional. No sacrifice here of boorah performance in trade neither for a large and quite spectacular cabin, nor for a head compartment whose entry door is a masterpiece of double-duty engineering. The 243 uses its spaciousness to full effect, most especially in ski storage and in cockpit appliances where a sink console highlights an interior among Cobalt's most sophisticated ever. The cabin, splendid in its appointments, offers a full eight feet of bedtime berth, an oversized deck hatch and opening portal to bring in the sea air.

Full speed ahead then, weekenders and confirmed cuddy owners. Full speed ahead.
