Sport Fishing - - NEW BOATS & GEAR -

COBIA’S NEW 301 re­places the com­pany’s widely pop­u­lar 296 CC and brings a num­ber of top­side en­hance­ments. A new con­sole with a slightly smaller foot­print gen­er­ates more cock­pit space and walk­ing room, yet it keeps the large for­ward en­try to the head area.

The helm area also features a pod in­sert that al­lows own­ers to color-match the con­trol sta­tion to the hull. The helm’s ex­pan­sive face of­fers enough room for two 15-inch elec­tron­ics mul­ti­func­tion dis­plays.

Cobia fit­ted the top of the con­sole with a lock­able con­tents drawer; a three-sided acrylic wind­shield en­clo­sure is an op­tion.

Be­hind the stan­dard deluxe helm seats, the top of the tackle sta­tion mod­ule now in­cludes a fresh­wa­ter sink and a siz­able cooler for baits or drinks. The cooler lid and sur­round­ing area cre­ate a rig­ging sta­tion and cut­ting board.

The aft hard­top legs each come with two rod hold­ers within easy reach of the tackle sta­tion. The mod­ule also features two stor­age draw­ers and a tackle-tray sys­tem.

The 301 CC features an in­ward swing­ing side door for board­ing ease and for haul­ing a siz­able catch onto the deck for quick re­lease or stowage.
