A boat of fiberglass offers all the romance to boaters, but in the factory there’s little of the traditional fun of hand‑shaping mahogany and inhaling the aroma of fresh-cut wood. Yet in Cobalt’s factory, from layup to upholstery to engine installation, the craftsmen work with commitment and enthusiasm. Cobalt’s pride in construction comes from respecting the contributions of its team. That’s what helps keep its work force stable and its products consistently good from model to model.
You might think I’m overstating the opulence of the 26SD WSS, and maybe I’m more enthusiastic than a Boating tech-team tester should be, but the boat’s fine points are built with the idea that the customer is of refined taste and prepared to shell out more cash per foot for this boat than they would for most competitors of similar size. And I’ve never met a Cobalt owner who said it wasn’t worth it.
