"We never aimed to be the biggest boat company, just the best."


It all starts with Founder, Pack St. Clair’s vision – “We never aimed to be the biggest boat company, just the best.” From there, his team of exceptional leaders has created an essence, a passion that is felt as soon as you walk through the doors at Cobalt Boats. A passion that motivates our boat builders not only to come to work each day, but to take pride in hand craftsmanship, a trait not necessarily taught, but instilled in the people. In their eyes, the same people who mold our hulls and gelcoat boats are just as essential as the leaders themselves.

As individuals, these leaders have exceptional traits that include the obvious skills like hard work ethic and integrity. But what makes this group exceptional is the driving force behind what we do every day. To be an industry leader, it takes more than just being good at building boats. To be a front-runner in this industry, it takes innovation, constant research and the power to execute a quality product. This team does just that – continuously revolutionizing the boating world, investing in the “what else can we do”, and enlisting in a team of experts, not only in the behind the computers, but walking the floors of our facility, too. 

As a result, Cobalt Boats has manifested new innovations that have lured the industry into a different way of thinking. Marker One, one of the company’s innovations, is a platform style boat – an entirely new market. Boat builders and experts took note as the platform boat debuted, and now has the industry thinking creatively about what we typically call “pontoon” boats. Marker One Platform Series embarks on an original idea and has since evolved as the new benchmark for luxury boating. It took this group of leaders to make it all come together – the diligence, research, the re-do’s and un-do’s. Marker One is a success not only because the product is unique, but also because of the people behind it.

And it should not go unmentioned that there are several other product innovations steaming behind this group. This year alone, Cobalt and Marker One will launch eight models. Not just one or two boats that stem from the same lineup, but innovative designs, unheard of for most boat manufacturers.

The worldwide dealer network and team at Cobalt Boats and Marker One have undoubtedly been a catalyst, driving the entire industry to think boldly, get creative and re-energize the market. Cobalt Boats became a leader in the industry not solely because the boats are great, but also because of the team and associates behind the product. It is because of the passion behind the product that makes this company great. The faces on every associate reflect that of our leaders; it’s our DNA.

BRP signs engine deal with Cobalt Boats 


Cobalt Boats’ Marker One Platform Series of deck and pontoon boats will now come equipped with BRP’s Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines.

“We’re proud to rig the Marker One Platform Series with the all-new Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine,” Gavan Hunt, Cobalt Boats vice president of sales and marketing, said in a statement. “The power and efficiency of the Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard delivers the torque and fuel economy our customers demand. The added bonus of BRP’s customizable engine panels aligns perfectly with Marker One’s Design Your Dream vision, as well. This isn’t your typical pontoon, and that’s why we’re rigging with an outboard that stands out on the transom.”

The Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine offers more than 400 color options.

“The pontoon boating segment is growing, and we’re committed to meeting this increased demand with unique products to perfectly match each application,” said Alain Villemure, vice president and general manager of BRP’s Marine Propulsion Systems division.

“Whether the Evinrude E-TEC Pontoon Series, specifically designed to enhance acceleration and throttle response, or the all-new Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine, with best-in-class torque for performance-minded consumers, we have what they want,” Villemure said. “This partnership with Cobalt Boats further reinforces our commitment to bring the power of choice to as many consumers as possible.”

Cobalt’s lineup includes runabouts and cruisers ranging from 20 to 36 feet, and now includes the new Marker One Platform Series, which can be rigged with the Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard.
