We made its function – you make its fun

The newest addition to Cobalt’s award-winning line of bowriders is the all-new R30 – a luxurious open-bow day boat designed with “Free Space Reclamation”, Cobalt’s exclusive technique for cockpit maximization. Elegant and expansive seating options combine with its endless storage spaces to provide the legendary ride that Cobalt is famous for. The largest of the BR Series, the R30 also features an electric actuated swim step that lowers to just below the water’s surface. Also astern, find a beach of a sunpad – large enough for four sun worshipers. And when it comes time to gather around for some good fun and conversation, make useful our convertible layout in the cockpit. Lounge the seats forward or aft, gather around the teak-adorned cockpit table or covert the area into a couch oasis with filler cushions. The port side features a head compartment that doubles as a changing room. At the helm, the captain will find the glass cockpit design provides a birds-eye-view for a safe and enjoyable day on the water – equipped with Garmin screens that keep your systems and route in view at all times. We cannot forget about the available joystick control with its easy maneuverability and simple operation. That’s right – easy and simple – all with a touch of class and style. The Cobalt R30.
