A ride approaching perfection. Now boarding the A28.

Her profile immediately catches your eye. Her elegant lines and jaw dropping aesthetics can turn even the most discriminating heads. Her inverse hull, whose complexity only yacht makers have seen fit to attempt, creates the sweep of a profile that can come only from Cobalt craftsmanship. Special to the A Series is the hydraulic swim platform which lowers 24″ below the water’s surface. Perfect for dipping a toe in the cool water, or functioning as a step stool for those eager kiddos jumping aboard.

The A28 interior will wow, as a soft aura of luxury surrounds you and your guests. Buttery smooth vinyls, rich textures, stainless steel accents all marry together to create this one of a kind model. The bow is broader in the beam, roomy and then some, with immediately reconfigurable seating. More practicality here too, in the added head compartment and yet more storage.

In the quantum leaps in technology, among all its genuinely new features, the A28 shows forth hour upon skilled man-hour of refined Cobalt craftsmanship – in the upholstery, at the helm, in the rubbed perfection of the gelcoat – and the payoff comes in years of reliable, worry-free enjoyment.

Now that’s worth turning some heads.
