New Model: Cobalt A40

With the new A40, Cobalt is trying again to enter a bigger size market. One of the known high quality builders in the smaller sizes, Cobalt has gained respect in its five decades plus of building boats as a very high profile boat builder thanks to its sea worthy hulls, well engineered and good quality builds. Surprisingly the entrance into the big sizes has always been a bit hard for them, and the 37 and 46 models both had a mild success. Now the new A40 is another try to change all that, and is a very interesting sport cruiser with a super exterior and well made interior offering overnight accommodation or a cruise with sleeping capacity for four persons. But surely what will stand out in the A40 is the exterior with its big central sun-pad, large L-shaped exterior wet-bar, and two L-shape settees.  Cobalt A40 can be powered by petrol or diesel, with hp range starting at 330hp up to a 430hp.
