Cobalt’s pride rests on proven building techniques and attention to detail. Its rich finish is protected from print-through by a premium barrier that’s invisible to the owner — as are so many other quality elements aboard, including the Kevlar reinforcement beefing up the structure. Gleaming and functional, the bow scuff plate, rub-rail insert and swim-platform grab rail are of highest-grade stainless steel. The upholstery is stitched with a dressmaker’s precision, and it too is an element of Cobalt style.
Coming from a family of boaters, Keri had an immediate appreciation for the 302’s richness. “There’s not one thing you can put your finger on that makes it so beautiful — it’s the tasteful combination of everything.”
Looks go only so far. That’s why Cobalt spent so much time planning the layout of its 9-foot- 11-inch-wide 302. On the widest boat in its class, sun pads, lounges, a privacy compartment and an entertainment galley all fit on deck while leaving easy passage from bow to stern. This stout hull takes on wakes at 40 mph without shaking and carves tight, predictable turns. As Keri will tell you, the Cobalt 302 exceeds expectations.
Keri’s Tommy Bahama garden trellis bikini easily complimented her vibrant smile. “it was very comfortable, and i liked it better than traditional bright, flowered bikinis.” Perhaps her favorite on-set accessory was the Pink Shell resort’s clever keys. “I’ve never seen anything like these key bracelets before! They even get you cocktails at the bar.”
