This magnificent off-road vehicle has made its mark in the 23 foot segment. Yes, she is expansive, and then some, but the Cobalt R3 is much more than your typical 23 footer.
Let us begin with her physique. The R3 exterior profile is sleek and low. The transom, platform design and aft sunpad are sculpted beautifully creating a smooth and sexy profile. The sunpad backrest is convertible, and the rumble seat is simple and effective.
As we step aboard through the walk-through transom, you will notice the cockpit has an interior beam measurement that is over a foot wider than any competitive runabout. This is no illusion. This interior expansion, Free Space Reclamation, is exactly what Cobalt's build process creates. It is most noticeable in the cockpit, which is adorned with seating that wraps around the transom and the port side. The wrap-around yacht style seating is exclusive to a boat her size. Notice the attention to detail in the upholstery with the stitching in perfect harmony. The design of the passenger seat provides a completely innovative convertibility to the cockpit.
At the helm, the aluminum dash panels, stainless switches, and form-fitted vinyl eyebrow are all highlighted by the 5" digital gauges with multi-function displays. The six-speaker Rockford Fosgate stereo with Bluetooth, provides fidelity the audiophiles will appreciate. Feel the leather wrapped wheel, sit in comfort at the helm and utilize the perfectly placed armrest, and ergonomically positioned footrest. Everything fits, everything Cobalt.
The competition doesn't belong in the same room.
