Cobequid Mountain Sports to feature Cobalt at 2017 Halifax International Boat Show

Cobalt 255c

Nov 6, 2016 

Located in the pristine countryside of Cumberland County NS. Cobequid Mountain Sports has been expanding its watercraft craft line for the past several years. Founded in 1965 as a power product company Alex Parker bought the business 5 years ago and expanded into watercraft with SeaDoo, Smoker Craft aluminum boats and Sun Chaser pontoon boats. This year marks a major expansion with the introduction of Cobalt boats to their line-up. As the only Cobalt dealer east of Ontario they have been getting customers from all three Maritime Provinces.

The star attraction at the Cobequid Mountain Sports booth at the 2017 Halifax International Boat Show (Feb. 9-12, Halifax Exhibition Centre) will be Cobalt’s new 25SC. This 2017 model has a wider bow shape than is found on most bowriders. The boat even has a forward ladder to make this the ideal beach boat.

To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.
