The new Cobalt R8 Surf offers the most room and best ride in the Cobalt Surf Series. The 27’ 10” R8 Surf offers a roomy interior with wrap-around, yacht-certified seating. The bow and cockpit of the R8 are larger fore to aft, and the head area is larger in both length and width. There’s plenty of room for passengers, their belongings and water sports gear. The R8 Surf also features the Cobalt Custom Wave Technology surf system with 6 hard ballast tanks that can have as much as 2300 pounds of ballast, a specifically-designed surf hull, the Volvo forward drive engine, and the best-in-class Surf Gate™ technology that shapes the perfect wave.
