Cobia’s 240CC features a contemporary deck layout that optimizes form and function to please everyone from tournament anglers to family fishermen, the company says. The boat’s 8-foot-10-inch beam creates a wide-open cockpit and stable platform; the level floor from bow to stern helps anglers fight fish along the rail without tripping.

Twin 33-gallon fish boxes in the sole, a 28-gallon livewell and a standard aft tackle station satisfy all the angling necessities. At the end of the day, cruising family and friends will appreciate the hideaway rear bench seat with backrest, optional forward-facing backrests for the bow seating and the forward-entry step-down head space below the console.

To keep everyone cool and ­comfortable, opt for the fiberglass hardtop, which is available with a factory windshield and in two-tone coloration. The 240 CC can carry up to 300 hp as a single or twins, and offers 125 gallons of fuel capacity.
