The Volvo Penta FWD sterndrive motor is the ultimate power source for the Cobalt Surf System. With two forward-facing props positioned well under the boat, this system has proven efficient and smooth performance. The two props spin in a counterclockwise direction which pulls the boat through the water rather than pushing it. 

Since the props are positioned well under the boat, you can surf safely without worrying about being near the spinning props. This powertrain system is perfect for the ultimate bowrider performance coupled with the surfing abilities create the ultimate boat.

The Cobalt surf boats can compete with towboats that are designed to create the ultimate wave. The difference can be seen in the motor and how it operates.

Towboats are better equipped for smaller bodies of water that don’t see much change in conditions on the water. For those boating on the big lakes or exploring the oceans who still want surf capabilities, the Cobalt surf boats should be on your radar.
