Day boats in the 30-foot range had become very popular by the late 1990s with weekend boaters more interested in an afternoon on the water than extended cruising. Among these new-breed designs, the Cobalt 293s rugged construction, graceful styling, and meticulous workmanship set her well apart from the competition. Not inexpensive, the 293 provides every comfort and convenience one could ask for in a modern day boat. The beautifully contoured cockpit comes with a wet bar with refrigeration, removable cockpit table, an extended swim platform, and a rosewood dash thatwith its leather-covered steering wheelcan only be described as elegant. In a clever design, the entire transom and rear seat folds away for access to the engine compartment. Theres an enclosed head in the cabin along with a V-berth/dinette and a small galley. What makes the Cobalt so special, of course, is the extraordinary fit and finish. A popular model, a single 375 Volvo DuoProp I/O will reach a top speed of 35 knots. Twin 320hp Volvo DuoPropsa more popular choicemax out around 45 knots.
