Boat Reviews By Owners

2004 -- 20' 6" COBIA

Model: 214 center console

Cockpit: For a 21 footer, the boat has one of the best layouts I've seen. The visibility is great with just the right size console. It does have a porta potti although I wouldn't use it unless it was an emergency. It has an 8 1/2 ft. beam which it kinda hard to find in this size boat, most have 8 ft. beams. It is great for fishing or taking the family to the island. I have fished 4 people comfortably and I've taken 8 people to the island. The boat has plenty of seating when cruising, or take the cushions out and it a hard core fishing machine.

Cabin: No cabin, but it does have plenty of storage. And bow cushions that you could sleep on it you wanted to ruff it. It also has a fresh water shower and plenty of coolers to keep food and drinks with you. Does it have a cabin? NO. Could you overnight it? YES, but not comfortably.

Construction: Very well built!!! I have had this boat in 3 ft. seas running 35-40 mph. Yes, your holding on pretty tight, but I still don't have any stress cracks, and this boat has seen a lot of air! There has not been any screws come loose, the cushions haven't torn, the paint still looks great.

Handling: The boat handles very well. It has the same really big nose thats on the 25 and 27 ft. Cobias. This makes for a very, very dry ride. The boat handles very well, and is well balanced with the 200 hpdi.

Engine Room: I have the 200 HPDI Yamaha. This is max horsepower for the boat. It is also very efficient. It has a top speed of 54 mph and an honest cruise of 35 to 40 mph. This is exactly where you want to be as far as power. You can cruise at 35 mph at 4 mpg and get there efficiently or you can run 50+ mph when you feel like going a little faster.

General Comments: For a 21 footer, this is a great boat. I'm going on 2 years with this boat and have put over a 150 hours on it. It hasn't caused me any major problems , and the few problems I have had my local dealer fixed right away under warranty. I normally use this boat for fishing on Saturday and going to the island on Sunday. It does both very well and efficiently. Even when fuel is 3 dollars a gallon, me and my buddies always can afford to take this one fishing. As for their bigger boats, there always on the trailer.
