Cobia Boats deck layouts position everything at hand when needed or wanted, and out of the way otherwise. No awkward steps or trip hazards. Enough freeboard to feel secure, not so much that fishing’s a pain. Handholds are unobtrusive, but handy when you need one.
It’s all done so you can focus on the fish and the fishing, not make adjustments to your boat.
There’s a lot to admire when you consider a Cobia: a fine, far-forward bow entry that extends running surfaces, slicing through waves before pushing them aside to create a soft ride. Further smoothing that ride is the variable-deadrise hull, which also aids fuel efficiency.
Cobias are built with backing plates and screw-retention materials at each fastening point, double-clamped hoses reinforced with sealant, and epoxy-coated and pressure-tested aluminum fuel tanks. Decks are stiffened with carbon-reinforced beams. Bilge interiors are finished. Electrical harnesses are created in-house with copper-tinned wiring that’s labeled.
Cobia is a Maverick Boat Group brand, along with Maverick, Hewes and Pathfinder boats.
Cobia 350 CC
The new Cobia 350 Center Console blends high style and hard-charging performance so you can fish hard and play easy.
A double-stepped, vacuum-infused hull makes getting to fishing grounds fast and fuel efficient, ahead of triple 300 hp or twin 425 hp Yamahas.
Fishing features include dual 42-gallon bait tanks (pleasing 96 percent of CC respondents), two large in-floor fish boxes, full tackle station, and bait prep area. Optional are deluxe top, kingfish rod holders, outriggers and kite-rod holders. Wide at 11 feet, 2 inches—as well as wide-open—the 350 CC has plenty of room for several anglers to fish.
Other options include joystick control, air conditioning and Garmin Master Suite electronics, including radar.
The 350 CC’s 11-person -seating includes triple helm seats, a two-person chaise longue and cushioned sun lounge; 40 percent of CC survey respondents want bow seating. A hideaway bow table electronically rises, for picnic or party or to complete a casting deck.
Within the walk-down console is a spacious berth with wooden cabinetry, an electric head, a combination sink/shower, and hidden, lockable rod storage. Easy access to the logical wiring and electrical system assures easy maintenance down the road.
