A great Day Boat for your time in the Destin Area.
The Cobalt R5 is one of Cobalt's newest and most popular lines. Cobalt makes a premier bowrider boat that is spacious and very well fitted. The R5 includes an upgraded sound system, private head with porcelain toilet, along with flexible seating for 14 people. This watercraft was designed for family and social interactions. It's a great boat to take to the beach, crab island, or cruising. It's also perfect for tubing or water sports. If you have not heard of Cobalt, check them out...this is not your normal leisure boat, they make a top of the line premium boat that is nothing like a regular ski boat.
Use the sunpad on the back of the boat to catch some rays and Cobalt has a proprietary swim platform that allows for easy in and out of the water when swimming. Bimini top is included.
I spent a great deal of time researching the perfect social boat, we easily take 2 families with plenty of room as the boat has a tremendous amount of functionality for its size.
I hope you enjoy the boat as much as me and my family!
Since this is a high-end boat, if possible, I will meet you at the boat to give you an introduction and understand features.
We ask that you remove all trash from the boat and rinse it out with the deck hose. We will handle all of the other cleaning. $70 cleaning fee applies (added to your reservation at the end of the booking).
Included: 8 life jackets, including 2-3 children's jackets.
-There is a tube on board, however we cannot guarantee performance in case there is an issue with it.
-The boat is stored in dry storage and no trailer is required. It will be in the water for you upon arrival.
Davids boat is perfect. We went from Destin to Panama City and had a blast. Everything is on board and available except food. No need buying tow ropes, vests or tubes. I will return to David again to use his personal boat!
David was very professional and responded to all of my questions in a timely manner. The on boarding process could not have been better, and the boat was awesome and in great shape. Perfect for me and my crew for a fun day out on crab island. Highly recommend using David and his Cobalt.
What a great time we had! David was great at communicating everything and he made the pick-up / on-boarding process very simple. It was a pleasure renting from him.
The Cobalt R5 is a spectacular vessel. David keeps his in fantastic shape and the marina where it's stored is clean and has snappy customer service. It's rare to be able to say this, but everything was in perfect working order!
Below are my favorite highlights:
- Amazing sound system+subwoofer
- Clean and functioning flushing head with holding tank
- Transom shower
- Ample freshwater storage
- Ultra plush bow seating with armrests
- Punchy Volvo V8-300 (half-trim yielded 40 MPH with 4 people, full fuel, and full water)
- Great captain's seat with solid flip-up bolster
- Super-solid bimini
- Lastly, the fold-down swim step was awesome for Crab Island relaxing!
