The new Cobia 330 Dual Console meets all the check points that a serious angler looks for in a boat. But these days that’s not always enough. Want your hardcore fishing boat to have enough amenities to entertain the crew when the lines are in? The 330 has you covered there too.
Let’s start with the fishy features. The 330 has a wide-open cockpit with 54.5 square feet of space, which is ample room for working a trolling spread or fighting a fish after the hookup. There’s a bait-prep station behind the port console seating and a 28-gallon livewell in the transom with a clear acrylic lid. Both the 70-gallon in-sole fish box to port and the 45-gallon one to starboard are insulated with optional macerators to handle your catch. You can upgrade the outriggers for the T-top.
When it’s time to entertain, the 330 sports a plethora of standard family-friendly amenities. A nine-piece filler set turns the bow area into either a lounge with wraparound seating and an electrically actuated bow table, or a full-on sun pad. The main cockpit features a working galley abaft the helm to starboard, with a standard fridge and sink, and the option to add a grill. Flip-out jump seats -behind the galley in the transom and along the port gunwale can convert the cockpit from a fish-fighting arena to a conversation pit. The portside console hides a head with a standard electric pump-out toilet.
The standard power package for the 330 DC is a pair of Yamaha F300s that provide plenty of muscle to get this boat up and running. However, upgrading to twin V-8 5.6L 425 XTO Offshore outboards will push the boat over 60 mph, according to test data provided by Cobia. In the same test data, the boat enjoyed its best fuel economy at 3,500 rpm, with a recorded speed of 32.3 mph while burning 21.5 gph for a 1.5 mpg rate. Those are good numbers for a boat capable of running far and wide to find the fish.
So, whether it’s a full day of fishing or a day of relaxing you’re after, the 330′s vacuum-infused construction and offshore-ready hull—with a 21-degree transom deadrise—ensure a smooth ride whether running inside or outside the inlet.
