Exterior

Where design and elegance meet, the CS23 Surf has legendary Cobalt DNA with smooth lines, an island sun lounge, wraparound swim platform extensions, and a surf-specific hull and deck designed for fun—plus, our simple, three-step wave-making process with TRUEWAVE Technology for thrilling performance on the water.
Swim Step

Popular and envied, our patented Swim Step lowers below the water line for easy access in and out of the water, is great for lounging, pets, and stows flush within the swim platform surface.

TruWave

Experience our original surf wave system that achieves thrilling surfing fun in three easy steps—fill ballast tanks, select surf left or surf right, set speed control, and go!

Engine Access

The wide engine hatch opening allows for easy access, easy maintenance, and storage space access—and the easy-lift hatch is gasket sealed when closed to reduce noise in the cockpit

Features & Innovations

Exterior Innovation

Zenith Arch

Our Zenith Arch, with fold-out bimini included, manually folds to a lower position to aid in garage storage. The simple, clean design is classic Cobalt and comes in either black or white and has easier-to-grip rotating turn handles and cam-locks for locking the Arch in the up-position. New board rack adapters integrate well with the styling of the Arch vs. pipe-clamp style mounts.
Exterior Feature

Fender Clip Package

The Cobalt stainless-steel fender clips are a quick mount system installed in the deck at the perfect fender position, so the lines are always set to optimum length. When docking, simply insert the pin into the fitting and you’re done.
Interior Innovation

Fresco Chil Vinyl

Finally, no more hot seats on darker colored vinyl while you’re out enjoying a full day of fun on the water. This anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, mildew-resistant, and sulfide stain-resistant fabric technology keeps your vinyl a full 15-20 degrees cooler than traditional vinyl even when it’s out in the sun.
Step & Platform Innovation

SOF-TRAC POSITIVE TRACTION MAT

Dress up your swim platform with the Sof-Trac Positive Traction Mat. Gentle on swimsuits and wakeboards, you’ll maintain traction even when wet. Dealer-installed kits are available for most current models with or without the Swim Step.

Interior

Sleek, simple, with artful styling and best-in-class standard equipment, the CS23 interior features digital elements, ergonomic excellence, luxury materials, and a redesigned layout that feels big enough for the whole family.
Interior Styling

Find additional accent vinyl colors and stitching coordinated with the exterior hull. Plus, honeycomb stitching in the side-panel vinyl and honeycomb-embossed Sof-Trac floor mats.

Aft-Facing Rumble Seat

The wide engine hatch opening allows for easy access, easy maintenance, and storage space access—and the easy-lift hatch is gasket sealed when closed to reduce noise in the cockpit.

LED Accent Lighting

Simply operated, offers seating on the sunpad at the swim platform, keeping you near the in-water activity on the platform. When not in use, folds down flat to become hidden in the sunpad.
