2023 Cobalt Boats R6 Surf
To this day, Cobalt Boats anchor night after night in a tradition of rugged individualism, in the pride of people with extraordinary skills set among a small town’s uncompromising notion of what might be. We know these people, the neighbors who come every morning to build these boats. We know their grandparents and their grandkids, second and third generations of families crafting nearly five decades of Cobalts. These are rooted people, solid in a work ethic born on farms and ranches, people who understand the ways in which personal accountability serves collective achievement. People who grew up together with Cobalt’s founders in a small town with big ideas. People with a sense of place. And of time.
Cobalt Boats has always been at the forefront of innovation, introducing many industry-firsts throughout our company’s history. Innovations began in the 1970s with electric windshield, fiberglass stringers, and aircraft-style switches and circuit breakers at the instrument panel. The 1980s introduced the first extended running surface, now-iconic bow scuff plate with the Condurre Series, and flip-lip seat bolster. In the 1990s there was the electric folding swim platform (of the 272) and the bow scuff plate evolved as standard equipment on all models. In the 2000s the Flip-Down Swim Step became another Cobalt exclusive innovation that reinvented water-borne activities and was awarded a U.S. patent in 2013.
We build boats on the premise that, in all our work in Neodesha, no one job is more important than another. As Cobalt has grown to a company of over 700 associates, we try very hard to perpetuate the genuine sense of family that has characterized our interactions with each other from the beginning. And so again tomorrow, we will do our part to nourish the implicit trust which underpins our relationships with Cobalt dealers, with Cobalt associates and, of course, with the remarkable people who own Cobalt boats. Cobalts come from a place where technology contributes in measurable ways to every component of a Cobalt’s construction, a place where, in ways beyond measure, individual effort and personal integrity have refined the boat-builder’s art for nearly 55 years of ever more sophisticated design.
About the R6 Surf:
Powerful and smooth, the R6 features Cobalt’s Custom Wave Technology surf system with multiple hard ballast links, the Volvo FWD powertrain, and a specifically designed surf hull that integrates with our best-in-class Surf Gate™ technology to shape the perfect wave for a day of excitement on the water.
With updated styling and an expansive interior that features wraparound yacht-style seating, the R6 Surf capitalizes on increased space, storage for watersports gear, and capacity for a head compartment while maintaining its sporty performance and responsive handling.
Cobalt Surf System
With Cobalt’s revolutionary surf system, Custom Wave Technology powered by Volvo Penta, you get the combination of Malibu Surf Gate™ with an explicitly designed surf hull, the Volvo FWD powertrain, and multiple hard ballast tanks that can have as much as 2,350 pounds of ballast. Plus, select your rider profile and the system will automatically configure the boat per the pre-saved profile setting. The result is a best-in-class wave that will even compete with some competition towboats.
Popular and envied, our patented Swim Step lowers below the water line for easy access in and out of the water, is great for lounging, pets, and stows flush within the swim platform surface.
Surf Graphics & Styling
Enjoy hull-side color patterns special to Surf models, with upper-hull color areas that create unique looks with space for additional colors in the scheme—plus chrome Surf badging accents. On the interior find additional accent vinyl colors and stitching coordinated with the exterior hull. Plus, honeycomb stitching in the side-panel vinyl and honeycomb-embossed Sof-Trac floor mats.
