Cobalt 302 Bowrider Lemoore CA

The Cobalt 302 is the largest bowrider in the builder's lineup, offering plenty of room, seating and storage capacity for a large family. The boat's size, well-designed hull form and weight make it very comfortable in 2- to 3-ft. seas, it is quiet at cruise speed, and its power and acceleration capability make it a good wakeboard or inflatable towing platform as well. The boat's high-end appearance is matched by its intelligent engineering and practicality of use and ownership.

Model Introduction
The Cobalt 302 is the largest bowrider in the builder's lineup, offering plenty of room, seating and storage capacity for a large family. The boat's size, well-designed hull form and weight make it very comfortable in 2- to 3-ft. seas, it is quiet at cruise speed, and its power and acceleration capability make it a good wakeboard or inflatable towing platform as well. The boat's high-end appearance is matched by its intelligent engineering and practicality of use and ownership.

Construction
After the gelcoat is sprayed on the mold, a vinylester-based Zycon barrier coat that's about the same thickness as the gelcoat (22 mils.) goes on the bottom to protect against blistering and the sides to reduce print-through. The bottom is a solid-fiberglass laminate, while SprayCore (80 mils.) is used on the sides to further prevent print-through. The hull is supported by a network of high-hat hollow stringers that are flanged and bonded to the hull with a high-strength adhesive. Marine-grade plywood bulkheads are tabbed to the hull and the stringers. The single-piece deckliner goes on next, attached to the hull with a shoebox hull-to-deck joint, with stainless steel self tapping screws every foot into a strip of pressure-treated plywood. Two more rows of screws follow, securing on the rubrail and stainless insert.

Hull Design
Cobalt designs its own running surfaces in-house. The boat has a modified-vee bottom with an aggressive entry for a smooth ride in a chop, reverse chines and running strakes to add lift and deflect spray, and 20° of transom deadrise for a good mix of efficiency and ride quality. Generous freeboard adds hull volume, and makes for a higher, safer cockpit. This Cobalt is evidence that practicality and safety (with the added interior freeboard) don't have to be at odds with attractive styling. The deeper cockpit also allows the use of the low profile windshield favored by the stylists, with the driver still getting decent protection from wind and spray. ...
