Full DescriptionBoat Location: Bethel Island, California.
This boat is all original and is excellent condition. 650 hours on the OEM Mercruiser 230 V8. We love this boat and would keep it forever, but our kids are hoping to try more advanced water sports and I would never drill holes in the gel coat for a tower. Time to pass it along to the next family. Cobalts of this vintage are built like tanks, all hand assembled with teak finishes, high grade vinyl, etc... The quality is obvious when you cruise, ski, etc... It has plenty of power and cruises at 40 mph. It is a wonderful family boat because it handles chop/waves effortlessly. Very smooth ride on rough afternoons on the lake. The interior is in great shape with only minor cracking at a few seams. This is expected at over 30 years of age. Other than that, the boat is turn key. Only fresh water use and stored indoors under a cover. The hull is in amazing condition. It literally has a mirror shine. We just had the teak redone last season and it looks amazing. It also has the factory teak swim step installed, which is great for water play, putting ski toys on, etc... I have 2 covers 1 is the OEM Cobalt cover, the factory bimini top and the original open bow snap on cover. I also have a thick file of all service history along with the original vinyl Cobalt booklet for holding the paperwork and 2 original 1985 Cobalt marketing brochures. I will include the trailer if interested for an additional cost. I just spent 1900 on the surge brake system new brake drums, surge brake actuator, etc... and new tires all around. Please check out pictures and let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your interest
