There are reasons both personal and collective for owning the Cobalt 212. Any boater spending five minutes or so in the company of the 212 will find wish-fulfillment of a truly individual sort. Pick your rationale. The subtle striping along a long, elegant profile maybe. Or aft, a stepped swim platform and a generous and welcoming sunpad. Amidships, the simplified design of the flattened windshield for maximized use of space. Bow-ward, enhanced seating, meaning more padding on a higher, deeper frame with muscular lumbar support from the new backrest. At the helm, emboldened instrumentation, clean and legible, crisp and aeronautical. Or perhaps the new, more deeply textured vinyls, more soothing mixes of color throughout. SORRY THIS BOAT DOES NOT HAVE A TRAILER!
