Cobia Boats has been on a tear the past four years, improving and expanding its offshore center console lineup. The builder continued the trend late last year when it launched the 320CC, which fills the gap between its 301CC and 344CC.
The 320CC has features aimed toward serious anglers, including two 55-gallon in-deck fishboxes with macerated discharges, twin 35-gallon transom live wells, a starboard tuna door, 11 gunwale rod holders and under-gunwale rod stowage. An optional hardtop adds nine more rod holders. Outriggers and kingfish rod mounts also are options.
Between the gunwales are a pair of bucket seats with flip-up bolsters and flip-down stainless footrests at the well-appointed helm. In the bow, a powered table creates a U-shaped dining and entertaining area. The table lowers halfway to function as a casting platform or sun pad, or to the sole to open the space for working fish.
Cobia powers the boat with twin Yamaha F300 outboards for a top end of 47 knots and a cruising speed of 27 to 30 knots. Twin 350-hp F350s are an option. Base price is $205,000.
