Nice boat ... I think(thought) I remember seeing pics of one with 600s and for sale fairly recently --- within the last year ...

I'd like to see a Formula 40SS with some 600 or 700s

That would be nice! A cruiser at 70+, Kind of like a Fountain cruiser.

Are they really offering Yanmars with ring drive on that model? That is ZF Marine technology developed by Fabio Buzzi and a very interesting concept but I thought Cobalt offer only I/O power. I think the one I saw had Volvo diesels with duoprop outdrives.

I saw a test of the 343 w/ yanmar/ring surface drive in an early summer boating mag issue.

Thumbs up Re: Cobalt Sleeper

Nice for a lake boat, get it in the rough a little side to side rocking and jumping everyone is on the floor

Ocean Performance took one in on trade with 600's...
