R8 STERN DRIVE

The R8 represents the next generation of R Series boats from Cobalt. At 27’10”, what really makes the R8 stand out on the water is the added size. We didn’t just make it longer…we totally rethought and redesigned every aspect of the R8 resulting in a higher profile and more freeboard, a roomy, expansive interior, with both bow and cockpit larger fore to aft, providing extra comfort for passengers and plenty of room for their things.

When you want more, you get it with the Cobalt R8. These features and many more make the R8 truly the ultimate bowrider.
