Lake Coeur d’Alene in Idaho may be the only inland waterway that challenges Lake Tahoe for elegance and beauty. Its deep, open waters can be rough and glassy on the same day, depending on where you boat in relation to the wind. It is a perfect testing ground for Cobalt’s 336 luxury bowrider, and its broad expanse makes it an ideal place for weekend overnighting and touring.
So what’s overnighting got to do with a bowrider? Cobalt has tucked a double berth, flat-panel TV and spacious head into this clever vessel, and it’s done it while preserving plenty of sun-kissed cockpit and bow seating space.
At first glance, it could be just another big bowrider. But upon closer inspection, this Cobalt shows great attention to detail. Check out the lounges. These have finely stitched, ultraviolet-light-protected upholstery with the rich feel of leather but the water resistance of premium marine vinyl.
In the port side of the cockpit is a wide lounger that provides wraparound seating in one configuration and forward-facing passenger console seat plus an aft lounge in another. Recline this seat, and it makes an ideal lounge for facing aft. With your feet up, there’s a cup holder within grasp of your fingertips to handle refreshments.
I also liked the cool cocktail table that pops out of the portside lounge amidships. It comes from underneath the lounge with three easy motions: Lift the seat cushion, raise the seat back to reveal the table, swing it out, and the seating re-forms behind it.
