It’s what you can’t see that counts.

And it may be what you can’t see that’s most important.
Cobia utilizes its Vacuum Assisted Resin Infusion System (VARIS) process to layup the hull and components. This allows for resins to be vacuum pulled throughout the layers of fiberglass, ensuring an even, thorough distribution of resin across the entire mold. The key is that it does this process through all the laminates, stringers and transom simultaneously, creating a solid, fused hull assembly that is stronger with less flexing that could compromise the hull’s integrity and finish. It also reduces resin waste and is much better for the environment.
With that said, Cobia built the 320 CC to up the ante in the fishing and cruising worlds. Looking at the standard features, there are all the niceties, including cushions, a forward table with in-deck storage, a head compartment with 6 feet, 2 inches of headroom, fishing accoutrements (cockpit fishboxes with macerators, rod holders, etc.) and color options.
But trick the 320 CC out with options like twin Yamaha outboards, autopilot, a joystick controller, a fiberglass hardtop, a JL Audio sound system, Garmin electronics, a windlass, rod holders, outriggers, twin livewells and a hardtop rod rack, and you have satisfied the needs of cruisers and anglers alike.
With lounge seats forward and a drop-in cushion for the large sunpad, twin bolstered helm seats with armrests, and a fold-up transom bench, there’s a spot for everyone. The starboard side boarding door makes dock access safe and allows for landing the big catch.
“It’s a spacious, very open boat with a stable, fast hull,” says Rich Gotlund, owner of Basa’s Marine.
If speed is the need, the 320 CC can exceed 60 mph depending on the engine package. Get more with the Cobia 320 CC, and trust what you can’t see.
