The Cobalt 263 is the yacht-certified cuddy companion to the 262 bowrider. The stringer system is all-fiberglass construction, as is the cockpit’s liner deck. The transom has been fashioned of composite materials, and the hull has been reinforced with Kevlar. In the cabin, directly in front of the dash, stands a very large cedar-lined locker. A large settee will sweep around the bow, with filler cushions (stored in the sidewall) ready to replace the center table. The effect: a six-foot U-shaped couch, in the manner of a big, big bowrider. The 263 has exceptional headroom, and a lower galley with a single-burner stove and a sink is both efficient and easy to use.
