Normally, Cobalt Boats factory tours are a great way to learn about what goes into creating a world-class boat, but unfortunately tours are not currently available due to COVID-19 precautions. A core value of Cobalt is safety. We believe it and we live it. So, we’ve made the difficult decision to temporarily shut down plant tours. This was done out of an abundance of concern and caution for you, our team members, and their families.
Any Yamaha, Mercury, or Volvo servicing dealer can perform routine maintenance, winterizing, summarizing, or engine work on your Cobalt. If your Cobalt is still under warranty, Cobalt would prefer you take your Cobalt to an authorized dealer for boat-related repairs. If you have moved, contact your selling Cobalt dealer for further information about Cobalt dealers in your new boating area.
Cobalt Boats does not offer service manuals; however, Cobalt has owner’s manuals available to download in the Owner’s Manual Download section on this current page. For any engine service information, please contact your dealer.
Due to many reasons including, but not limited, to variances in altitude, temperature and load conditions, Cobalt unfortunately is not able to provide this information. Please contact your local Cobalt Boats dealer for this information.
Please reference your owner’s manual or download a version in the Owner’s Manual Download section on this current page.

Cobalt Boats can only CE certify boats when they are ordered and built with those requirements. Once the boat leaves our facility, it is up to the owner to contact the country authorities for their ruling on boats coming into their country that are not CE certified. If the boat can be certified, it is the owner’s responsibility to meet the country’s requirements.
