Cobia prides itself on deck layouts with everything where it’s most likely used, and where that use is as easy as possible.
No awkward steps or trip hazards on deck. Handholds are handy when you need them, unobtrusive when you don’t. Displays within sight, controls within reach. You focus on the fish, not negotiating your boat.
Cobia hulls’ far-forward bow entries extend running surfaces to slice through waves before pushing them away for a dry ride. Variable deadrise hull gives soft, relaxing and fuel-efficient rides—what 80 percent of offshore center-console owners call their most valued characteristic.
Cobias are built with -backing plates and screw-retention materials at each fastening point, double-clamped hoses reinforced with sealant, epoxy-coated and pressure-tested aluminum fuel tanks, and labeled, copper-tinned wiring harnesses built in-house. Bilge interiors are finished, and decks are stiffened with carbon-reinforced beams.
Maverick Boat Group, which acquired Cobia in 2005, also builds the Maverick, Hewes and Pathfinder brands, each a market leader in its segment.
Cobia 350 CC
Cobia’s new 350 Center Console, its biggest CC, boasts a double-stepped hull that gets you to the fishing grounds swiftly and fuel-efficiently, powered by triple F300XCAs or twin 425 XTOs.
The 350 CC, along with all Cobia’s 26 feet and larger, are vacuum infused using Maverick’s proprietary VARIS (Vacuum Infused Resin Infusion System).
Topside amenities include triple independent helm seats, a two-person chaise longue, and forward sun-lounge -seating.
Seven insulated boxes provide abundant cooler space and dry storage. The console’s interior houses an airy berth amid wooden cabinetry, plus an electric head and sink/shower.
Cobia didn’t forget that this is a fishing boat; its dual 42-gallon bait tanks, two huge in-floor macerated fish boxes, full tackle station/bait-prep area, and lockable below-deck rod locker exceed survey respondents’ expectations.
The 350’s open cockpit and 11-foot-2-inch beam create plenty of space for several anglers to fish at once—or to chase a hot fish around boatside. Battle over, an inward-opening side door -welcomes aboard even a big tuna.
Optional fishing features include flush-mounted kite rod holders, pressurized livewell sea chest system, T-top kingfish rod holders, deluxe hardtop, and outriggers.
