25. WIRING

26. BOW DEPTH

Sea Ray designs feature a deep bow; comfortable and functional. A deep bow is safer and gives more support for bow passengers (often children) with larger, more comfortable
seating. Sea Ray’s hinged bow cushions open with one hand to reveal ample under-seat storage.


Cobalt designs feature a bow that is shallower by several inches, with smaller seats.

27. BOW SEATING

Sea Ray bow seats convert into a full sun lounge, with a simple cushion insert.


Cobalt uses a three-piece design that leaves a large gap in the cushions.

28. SNAP CANVAS

Sea Ray construction utilizes screw-style top studs, allowing for easy replacement.


Cobalt uses a rivet-style stud system, which is prone to loosening with no simple option for tightening. They must be drilled out in order to replace when loose or worn/damaged.

33. BUCKETSEATS

Sea Ray fiberglass seat frames are strong enough to allow the seat spider base to bolt directly to them without reinforcement.


Cobalt’s plastic seat frames require aluminum re-enforcing plates between the plastic seat and spider base.

34. HATCH HARDWARE

Sea Ray considers security to be an essential part of your boating experience, providing two
compression latches on the ski locker hatch (the aft latch is lockable) – this also makes the hatch rattle-free.


Cobalt uses a single locking twist latch with no compression mechanism.

35. DECK FILLS

Sea Ray integrates a vent into the fuel fill system to recapture fuel overflow – the vent location also allows for easy monitoring while fueling.


Cobalt’s separate vent is located out of sight while fueling. Cobalt does not have a fuel recapture system, which can result in fuel discharging into the environment.

36. AESTHETICS

Sea Ray hull accents are both functional and aesthetically appealing, incorporating the engine bay air intakes into the design.


Cobalt’s hull accents are located below the gunwale, making them susceptible to dock damage.
