Cobalt’s goal is simple: to design and build the world’s most innovative, well engineered, and best-performing boats imaginable. For over 40 years the company has succeeded in that mission, offering a level of quality and fit and finish that has placed them among the
world’s elite boat builders. Runabouts, from 20’ to 33’ have long been the brand’s bread and butter. Today, deckboats, cuddies and cruisers round out the line, each showcasing a level of handcrafted quality and sophistication that make the name Cobalt an industry benchmark.
The 242 is all about access - the wide bow walkthrough doors, the laddered swim platform, and deep, wide, right-there storage -- with every square inch maximized for all-day use, as in the bow with its optional dinette table. Remember too that practicality - adjustable backrests, insulated ice chests, removable ski pylons, cylinder-assist lifting, and chair pockets - deserve its own perhaps more restrained outbursts of affection.

Water Sports Tower w/Sunshade - From it's heavy gauge anodized polished aluminum stock to precision machined billet fittings and joints this tower is pro-athlete strong with lifelong good looks. And not a single unsightly weld in site. The perfectly integrated racks to port and starboard carry your four favorite boards in complete security. Solid. Rattle free. Then with a quick release of a swivel lock the racks swing 180 degrees inboard for safe access. Above, the accessory crossbar with LED cockpit lighting is pre-wired for optional tower spot lights and speakers, while the rigid mount sunshade has cockpit comfort covered. Canvas is color matched, of course.
Exterior Graphics - The look begins with a split gelcoat hull design available in any combination of standard Cobalt gelcoat colors. Then comes the chrome silver WSS hull crystal cap emblems and transom Water Sports Series badge. And for the finishing touch there are three inch black chrome COBALT insignias in an edgy chiseled style.
Interior Styling - WSS styling continues on the interior with a black powder coat to instrument and glove box panels. The glove box proudly displays the Water Sports Series badge, while the helm is dressed with extended brushed aluminum gauge bezels, and an upgraded black leather and polished stainless steering wheel. Elsewhere, the upholstery offers new owners a choice of color matched piping.
