Zenith Tower Cobalt Boats


Cobalt’s innovative Zenith Tower, with fold-out bimini included, manually folds to a lower position to aid in garage storage. The simple, clean design is classic Cobalt. Offered in both black and white, the Zenith Towner has easier to grip rotating turn handles and cam-locks for locking the tower in the up-position. New board rack adapters integrate well with the styling of the tower vs. pipe-clamp style mounts.
