The 230 has proven itself quietly exceptional, gathering the nuances of a well-made boat in a look and feel that blend carefree hours now with years of reliable value.
The question comes, "What do I really want in my new Cobalt?"
And the 230 answers back, speaking of stability in a soft, smooth ride even in rough chop. Of sudden planings and cranked turns. Of pragmatism in all best use of interior space, a configuration setting the largest L-lounge in its class aft of dual buckets, of a bow whose seating is every bit as inviting as the 230's flared lines would have you believe. Because unabashed good looks matter to you too, the 230 brings along masterful detailing at the helm station, in the profligate use of stainless steel bow to stem, in the rich textures of the upholstery. All in a boat that casually takes you all down the years in style and contentment.
In the case of the Cobalt 230, it's not at all too much to ask.
