At the Cobalt’s helm station, a custom-molded dash is covered with snug-fitting vinyl with a full-grain leather look. Contrasting double stitching is arrow straight and perfectly parallel. Instruments are set in solid aluminum plates. This gives the sturdiest support, ensuring a longer, fog-free life. The dash panel has plenty of space for MerCruiser SmartCraft or Volvo Penta instrumentation, plus a GPS if you elect that option. If you’re tempted by navigation equipment, let Cobalt put it in for you — it eliminates much of the haze around warranty claims and ensures your dealer will not be punting to another vendor should you need service. (One thing that makes Cobalts popular is their top-shelf dealer network and strong reputation for standing behind what the company sells.)
The portside console pivots outward on Fort Knox-heavy hinges and latch, revealing a large head compartment trimmed with granitelike surfaces and rich vinyl accents.
Our test boat had the optional radar arch with hardtop ($18,150). Cobalt also offers a Bimini top ($2,520) if you’re inclined. Though Cobalt clearly built this rig to cruise, relaxation is at the heart of boating, and its signature transom boarding bench makes the greatest place to enjoy the water at anchor or when reboarding from wakesurfing. The nice thing about the 336 is that, if your crew can’t decide whether to cruise, ride or hang out, it can go with the flow and satisfy them all.
