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 Cobalt 272 has a combination of spaciousness, versatile seating, and standard amenities that make onboard entertaining a matter of course. With a concealed head, a refreshment center with running water, an electrically controlled swim platform, and music piped fore and aft, the 272 is a carefully engineered base of entertainment operations. Underlying all the fun is a 100-percent hand-laid hull. Hand-laid fiberglass has long been the standard of excellence in lamination that lasts, the key to structural strength and durability. It's called Hydrolam, this exclusive process of alternating heavy mat and heavier roving in seven layers of fully cured strength, a process that stretches over four full days of hull construction. Total Reaction Chemistry is here too, increasing the quality of the lamination in every aspect. The results are in the 272's long-term performance and value: elimination of stress cracks, far stronger lamination beginning to end, and visibly increased resistance to blisters. The 272 brings along typical Cobalt practicality. There's a big anchor locker with rubberized liner and gas-assisted door, a one-piece molded bow rail, carpeted storage bins under bow seats, fender lockers, and acrylic walk-through bow doors. The 272's bow is outfitted with: stereo headsets with separate volume controls, courtesy lights throughout, and drink holders surrounding every seat. An optional seat-insert transforms the bow into a sundeck for improvisational fun. In the cockpit, just astern of the flip-lip captain's chair (a five-second transition to a safe and comfortable view above the windshield), the refreshment center incorporates a round stainless steel sink, a bar faucet, and compact circular storage to produce food and drink in a very tight space. The ice chest is portable. It's 56 quarts of portability, in fact, ready to be packed with provisions at home, toted onto the boat and then locked into place behind the wetbar. The 272's head is located portside between the bow and the cockpit, and is totally concealed when not in use. The door (otherwise known as the footrest-and-glovebox assembly) swings open and the head waits below. Total privacy is assured even as an overhead light turns on and, automatically, a fan begins to draw fresh air to the compartment. The electrically controlled swim platform on the Cobalt 272 draws attention from knowledgeable boaters. Made of gelcoat fiberglass with a skid-resistant surface, the platform hides away until it's needed. Then, with the flip of a switch, it lowers to water level, reveals its fold-down ladder and extends a broad, sure-footed, walk-around surface. A courtesy light clicks on for night swims. A second switch, operational by a dog-paddling swimmer, controls the platform from the water. With some engine - outdrive combinations achieving more than 400 horsepower, the 272 still finds room for storage astern: behind the backrest on the aft bench (ideal for stashing life jackets, fenders, running gear, water toys, etc.), and a surprising amount of free space in the engine compartment itself. The Cobalt 272 carries with it all the guarantees of Cobalt engineering.
