Volvo Penta Next-Generation Gasoline Engines Named one of the Top Products of the Year

 

Cobalt Boats and Volvo Penta have decades of experience working together to not only improve the boating experience, but to also design innovative products, bringing creativity and quality to the forefront of the industry. We are pleased to share their newest product – the 5.3L 300 and 350 hp V8 gasoline sterndrive engine.














Boating Industry has named Volvo Penta’s Next Generation Gasoline Engine one of the Top Products of the Year.  You can read more about the 2016 winners in their May Issue.

These next-generation engines introduce fresh features that have never been available to the sterndrive market from any engine supplier. They are the first V8 marine gas engines combining the following technical advancements:

  • Common-rail direct fuel injection for better fuel economy and lower emissions
  • Lightweight all-aluminum block for industry-leading weight-to-horsepower ratio
  • Standard Freshwater cooling (FWC) for longer engine life in the marine environment
  • Variable Valve Timing (VVT) producing higher torque and acceleration across the full range of RPMs
  • Wideband oxygen sensors to accommodate blended fuels and fuel quality 

Again, Cobalt Boats would like to applaud Volvo Penta on their newest innovation, and for the many years of success and partnership. We are sure to see even more great things to come from this innovative company!

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to navigate the new R30

 

The latest addition to Cobalt's award-winning line of bowriders is the all-new R30 - a luxurious open-bow day boat designed with "Free Space Reclamation", Cobalt's exclusive technique for space maximization. Elegant and expansive seating options combine with its endless storage spaces to provide the legendary ride that Cobalt is famous for. 

The largest of the BR Series, the R30 also features a motorized swim step that lowers to just below the water's surface. Also astern, find a beach of a sunpad - large enough for four sun worshipers. And when it comes time to gather around for some good fun and conversation, make use of the convertible layout in the cockpit. Lounge the seats forward or aft, gather around the teak-adorned cockpit table, or convert the area into a couch oasis with filler cushions. 

The port side features a head compartment that doubles as a changing room. At the helm, captain will find the technology of our glass cockpit design intuitive and amazing - equipped with three Garmin touch screens that keep your route in view at all times. In addition, the available joystick control with its easy maneuverability and simple operation make docking a breeze. 

That's right, space AND technology without having to study rocket science. The R30 is luxuriously simple, not complicated like other imitators. The R30 embraces elegance and appeal – two prized possessions that only a Cobalt can offer.

Build on, Neodesha.

 

In the little Kansas town of Neodesha a huge sign hangs over the entrance to the Cobalt plant: “Through these doors walk the best boatbuilders in the world.” Simple statement of a complex fact.

For owners of Cobalt boats the word “best” passes without contradiction.  Those proud owners’ confident assurance of Cobalt quality begins in the handiwork of their boats’ builders.  Key word: “builders”.  Not producers. Not assembly-line workers.  But builders – hands-on, personally engaged, personally responsible builders.  Craftspeople with demonstrated skills, an uncompromising ethic of work, and self-imposed standards of individual accountability.

Cobalt is approaching fifty years of building boats in the classic tradition.  We’re a throwback of sorts, a company of the insistent belief that the very best work is done by hand.  Of course, we understand the role that the tools of a digital age can play in the production of boats of immediate service and enduring value.  Machines can produce. They can produce just fine.  And we take rich advantage of the accuracies, the exact replications, the measurements of performance that emerging technologies make possible.

But only a knowledgeable, caring human being can build.

So we persist in the daily pursuit of the unreachable -- the design, manufacture, and ongoing support of the perfect runabout, the ideal performance cruiser. With our dealers worldwide, we give our minds and hearts to the winning of the hearts and minds of our customers.

And the results are these, tangible and unforgettable in a summer that lasts like laughter: the escaping ooohs and inescapable wows of sudden movement, a welcome if unasked amnesia, the cares of a workaday world whisked away in a nanosecond of spray, land-locked worries gone in the laughing thump to the chest that defines a good, good day.

Build on, Neodesha.
