Cobalt CS3 Alan JonesJune 2, 2016 1 Comment The CS3 is the first in a new series of boats unlike any Cobalt youve ever seen.

One glance at Cobalts new CS3 told me something was up. Then it hit me: The silhouette is totally different from any other Cobalt. Toward the stern, the shearline swoops down dramatically to the ultra-low swim platform, like its imploring passengers to get into the water.

Unique Factor

Another first on a sub-24-foot Cobalt are the dual stern walkthroughs into the cockpit. They create an island sunpad between them, a feature more commonly found on yachts such as the A40 Coupe. And this is really at the heart of what Cobalt does: build yacht-like boats no matter the LOA. The swim platform itself sits right at water level, just like on a tournament ski boat, but it goes one better with its Flip-Down Swim Step, which is a wide step that flips down into the water, making reboarding from the water easier and creating a great submerged doublewide seat. For the first time, this patented feature is standard across the board for Cobalt. The dual-walkthrough setup is especially good for kids, because it seems like they are always in and out of the water, and two walkthroughs prevent human logjams. To increase tanning square footage on the sunpad, optional cushions can be installed on either side.

Whats underneath the sunpad is pretty impressive. Sterndrive engine compartments tend to be pretty claustrophobic, especially for mechanics. Cobalt, however, gave the engine compartment which doubles as twin storage compartments for bulky items such as a Coast Guard kit or a deflated inflatable tube plenty of room. Partitions flank the engine to keep stored items from touching the powerplant, but they can be removed for engine access.

Performance

Our test boat featured the new Volvo Penta 5.3L, which is the GM Gen V engine block thats found on new Chevy Suburbans. The V8-300C engine has an all-aluminum block that substantially reduces its weight to 744 pounds (not counting the outdrive), which is more than 100 pounds lighter than the previous generations iron-block engine. It has a closed cooling system that uses radiator fluid to cool the engine, not salt water or raw lake water, which should help internal longevity. It features Variable Valve Timing (VVT) that retards and advances the timing, based on load, to give it great performance throughout the power curve.

Not only did the engine deliver a great holeshot that put the CS3 on plane in 2.2 seconds with very little bowrise, but its midrange acceleration allowed it to scorch from 0-30 mph in only 4.5 seconds. I most noticed its power when I jammed the throttle as we were cruising along at 30 mph; the acceleration pushed me back in the seat like a giant hand. Top speed for the 300 hp-equipped CS3 was 50.5 mph. The V8-300C comes at a $7,364 upcharge over the standard Volvo Penta V6-240C totally worth it. For $10,456 more than the standard V-6, the 5.3L V8-350C hp version will deliver even higher speeds. MerCruiser power is also available, from the 250 hp V-6 to a V-8 that packs 350 hp.

Handling

The CS3 falls into Cobalts Gateway Series, which is designed to get new blood into the Cobalt family of boats at a more affordable it starts at less than $70K price. Its also geared for the younger first-time owner who is into watersports. But new boaters find trimming the outdrive a challenge and more experienced hands see it as one more chore to constantly be micromanaged. To solve this, Volvo Penta uses Power Trim Assist (PTA) to automatically trim the outdrive, to constantly maintain the proper attitude. I didnt have to trim down first to make sure it didnt blow out; I just cranked the wheel and it responded with a really crisp a
