What Cobia Owners Are Saying

“We purchased a 280DC and just love everything about it. We feel that it is the perfect combination to fish, cruise and sandbar with the family.”.

Richard Miller – Jupiter, FL

“We chose the 280 DC for many reasons. Most importantly, we wanted to be able to cruise comfortably with friends and family. We also wanted the ability to fish near or offshore occasionally. The fact that we have owned a Hewes, a Maverick and a Pathfinder made choosing Cobia easy. We love going out in the evening, pulling up to one of the riverside restaurants for take out and then dropping the anchor to watch the sunset over the lagoon with friends. This often goes late into the night with some dancing and lots of laughs. It’s also a great boat for sandbars. The hardtop and retractable awning give lots of shade and we can easily sit 8 in the cockpit. As expected, it is a solid, strong running boat with all the creature features we wanted and a cockpit that rivals many bigger boats. We made the right choice with our 280 DC “YOWZA”.”
