Cobia has been in the boat industry for over fifty years, having their origins in Fort Pierce, Florida. They are especially known for their family recreation saltwater boats that are able to “withstand the test of time”. Maverick Boat Company, which manufactures top names such as Maverick, Hewes, and Pathfinder, had taken over Cobia several years ago and vowed to continue the tradition of “true” fishing boats. Cobia has ultimately revolutionized the art of boat building in the industry, beginning with small, tackle fishing boats, to boats that now contain the most innovative technology and advanced building materials. Some of their newest features include the SeaTeach System, which is a state-of-the-art electrical system, as well as a durable and fuel-efficient Yamaha Outboard. Each boat is built with their “team concept” in mind, rather than a single factory production line, which often leaves the boat without personalized features.
In 2006 Cobia opened their newest 39 acre, 120,000 square foot factory in Marion, North Carolina for the sole purpose of continuing to build quality boats. This facility pays close attention to and overall utilizes the newest technology and environmentally friendly techniques in boat building. Each hull is designed with specific criteria in mind which enables the boats to meet all of the requirements for their specific usage. The main factors involved in building Cobia hulls is usage of the latest technology CAD applications and naval architects who design the three dimensional hull. Just as much thought goes into the plug of the boat. The plug is usually a wooden or foam replica of the hull design, but generated through several automated routing machines to ensure that the design is nothing short of satisfying. Finally, the mold and fiberglass come after to ensure you have the most premium family fishing boat.
Cobia Yachts can be purchased used starting at approximately $5,000. New Cobia models can be purchased in the range of approximately $10,000 to over $30,000 all depending on the size and model.
