The Cobalt 240 is an all-around athlete, blending the best attributes of a competition ski boat with the versatility of an I/O outdrive. Everything about the 240 has been designed with high-speed excitement in mind, no matter what the activity. From boarding to slalom skiing, the 240 will deliver the wake that maximizes the fun – its reversed chines create exceptional stability in turns and full, easy control of the experience at the end of the rope. And yet, for all its muscle, the 240 takes second-place to nobody in terms of its style. Incorporating the fluid lines of the flagship Cobalt 360, this boat demonstrates the grace that comes when function follows form. Options include a removable ski tower with sunshade, an aft air compressor, Sonic Tube speakers aimed squarely at those in the water. The activity platform – easily removable, by the way – is a paradigm of utility, with effortless access from the water, ski storage on the spot, and handy tie-downs everywhere.
