Default Cobra Cat ??

I found this boat sitting in back of a junkyard in my town. It is for sale but the guy who has it knows nothing of the boat or any boats for that matter.
He said it is a Cobra. It does not look like any Cobra I have seen in my search online.
It is powered by twin 2.5 Mercs which have 225 on the cowlings.

The boat is in pretty rough (weathered) shape but would clean up nicely.

Anyone have any knowledge of this type of Cobra ?? I have no idea what year it is but I would imagine early 90's.

Any info appreciated

Not Sure, he is an ole timer and said I could come back and talk to his son. I will try and pass by after X Mas and see if I can get more info.

I am not in the market but it may be a great winter project for someone.

Anyone have any info to share on this Cobra boat company ??

p.s. The hull was 30'.

They were popular for a short while partly because of Bills effort marketing it. I don't think they were ever anything more than OK. I remember they had no compression designed into the tunnel.

I'll give him $1000 and $500 to you for brokering the deal.
