We Say: Not only is Cobia's 344CC fast with triple Yamaha F300s — reaching 65.5 mph in our test (67-plus in Yamaha's testing) — but Cobia integrated family features so well that the vessel outshines many similar boats.
Twin 41-gallon livewells turn the transom into an efficient workstation. Ample rod holders, a tuna door and a thoughtfully configured tackle station demonstrate Cobia’s fishing culture, as does the rod stowage beneath the berth inside the console.
For families, there’s an electrically actuated bow table. This rises knee-high to complete a forward sunning or casting area. Raise it waist-high for dining, and sit in the plush, removable seating surrounding the table.
Our test boat came with the optional hardtop and glass windshield. The dash holds two 16-inch multifunction displays and Yamaha’s Command Link Plus gauges. Anglers can upgrade to joystick-controlled Optimus 360 power-assist steering.
