We Did It Our Way: A Review on the Marker One M27

 

Boating World Magazine is known for keeping us all posted on the latest boating news. From boat testing and reviews to industry updates and Q&A's, this renowned publication embodies the passion of its readers and shares with us all the need-to-know-now information regarding the boating lifestyle.

Let’s begin, shall we? When Boating World Magazine set out to test our M27, we were thrilled at first plane. We knew they would love this Platform for so many reasons. And that they did!







First, as any seasoned boater would notice, the ride was impeccable. The M27 stood true to her nature. Smooth. Quiet. “The arrangement yields plenty of lift and helps the M27 ride high in the water to scoot over the chop in style, making it a good choice for larger bodies of water,” noted the magazine. And duly noted was her performance – “Anyone who has been on one of the builder’s runabouts or yachts would recognize this helm’s Cobaltiness: dark, double-stitched dash, eyebrow and leather-wrapped wheel. The windshield, bracketed with stainless steel posts, is made of real glass instead of the usual plastic bubble. The doublewide helm seat invites the copilot to join the captain, and the flip-up bolster is just what you would see on a regular Cobalt.”

It wasn’t to our surprise that they pointed out those special features aboard as well. This M27 was fully loaded with our top-of-the-line Yeti cooler, optional port-side galley and sink, as well as the endless number of cupholders. But above all, like true Cobalt fashion, our upholstery took the eyes of all in her path. “Ultra-wide seat bottoms and three reversible seatbacks yield lots of space and options for lounging, sunning and sitting.”

No Shortcuts in 2015

 

The 2015 model year has already kicked off to a great start. Cobalt Boats has introduced the highly anticipated R7 Water Sports Series (WSS) as well as a new S-interior option for the 200. These exciting debuts made their appearance at the 2015 Dealer Meeting held in the fall.

The R7 WSS is every watersports enthusiast’s dream. Standing fully prepared to fulfill demands of wakeboarding, wakeskating, or any and all watersport activities, this package exhibits outstanding athleticism and style. “This boat is the perfect combination of stern drive excellence and a water-sport towing machine,” says Gavan Hunt, VP of Sales and Marketing. The addition of the R7 to the WSS series makes a great addition to our product offering, the tremendous interior beam synced with the WSS package will undoubtedly become an industry benchmark.











This ultimate bowrider sports new exterior graphics and a unique R model arch with billet wakeboard racks. The WSS-specific trim throughout the upholstery and dash, provides an aggressive look to the cockpit. As with any of Cobalt’s WSS sport boats, the new R7 WSS is showcased by the chrome WSS badge at the transom. A feature that provides a custom highlight, worthy of gloat. “The R7 WSS has already surpassed our initial projections. We can’t wait to see more from this industry-leading boat.”

Encompassing style, convenience and comfort, the 200-S interior is also new to the 2015 lineup. This versatile seating arrangement combines an oversized layout with amazing performance. The passenger seat can be positioned in a traditional, forward-facing manner, then quickly and easily flipped down, transforming the cockpit into a massive arena-style seating arrangement. “In addition, the 200-S includes an in-floor ski locker for convenient storage, which is also an added bonus” Hunt adds. And to top it off, the 200-S interior utilizes every square inch of space, maximizing your ability to bring aboard every necessity for a fun day on the water.

It May Look Like a Pontoon, But Don't Call It One

 




Boating Magazine knows not to call the new Marker One an ordinary pontoon. After their review, you'll see why. 

A few highlights from their up-close-and-personal date with the M27:

1. An Entirely Fiberglass Deck

Most pontoon manufacturers use fiberglass components, but what makes us different is the molded glass from the stringers up. No wood, just fiberglass. 

2. Patents Are A' Pending

Up first is the fiberglass deck jointed to the aluminum hulls (otherwise known as tubes by others). The structural integrity of the M27 is so strong it dampens the noise from underneath. Another patent in the approval process is the lifting pads and strakes, working together to generate lift and lean inboard while turning. And lastly, the third patent is the wedge stringer system helping the boat sit level from bow to stern. 

3. There's Space, and Even More Space Aboard

With its 9-foot-3-inch beam, the M27 has an interior space advantage over its competitors. There's space for lounging, a space for luggage, a space for dining. You name it, there's a space for it.

4. Fit and Finish

The Cobalt Boats aura is evident on the Marker One. From stainless steel furnishings to cavernous storage, the M27 glows with class from every angle. And for the party-goers, we've also included 23 cup holders and six receptacles for the technology of the day.

5. No Reservations Needed for Seating

Because the M27 was envisioned for comfortable, sprawl-out relaxing kind of boating, seating is a nonissue here. Take a seat forward-facing, or enjoy the wraparound arrangement with the group. Flip the armrests down for lounging or take a seat on the swim platform and go beaching.

Marker One was very pleased with Boating Magazine's review. To read the full article, click here
