2008 Cobalt 46 Express

Northport, New York


Rare To Market Luxury Express Cruiser 



The 46Y Cobalt Express Cruiser is a simply stunning boat with gorgeous lines coupled with the high quality and attention to detail that has made this particular Cobalt model famous. The theme is similar to that of a luxury GT automobile melding performance and design in harmony to offer both a smooth safe ride and beauty to behold. 

The boat comes truly fully loaded for all occasions and adventures and is ready to go.for the day or for an extended cruise. Widely considered one of the most beautifully sculpted exterior designs of the last 20 years - she looks like she is underway even tied to the dock. 

True connoisseurs will immediately recognize the solid handling and smooth riding Cobalt hull through a range of wave heights and states and the quality and the level of amenities together with the docile and predictable nature of the boat's ride.

This yacht was designed by renowned naval architect, Donald Blount. It has twin 480-hp Cummins Diesel propulsion packaged with Zeus pods. This 46' is fully loaded with nearly every option possible. It comfortably sleeps 6 people. The boat has electronic/digital switching seen on only the most luxurious of cruisers. Two full staterooms, 2 heads with full showers (including a ceiling flush rainshower fixture in the master head), and a well-appointed galley. The aft stateroom has twin beds with vanity and sink and a plasma TV/DVD, while the main stateroom has a full queen bed with a Bose surround sound system and a flatscreen TV.

The galley has 2 Vitrifrigo drawer fridge/freezers, a retractable microwave, range hood fan, ample storage for kitchen items, detailed accent lighting and sports a Bose Life System surround sound system.Additional convenience items include a lighted wine rack/storage and custom serving utensil storage, which is stocked with customized Cobalt dishes, silverware, and wine glasses.

The cockpit is ready for outdoor parties: Its full wet bar includes a BBQ grill and 3rd refrigerator/freezer, next to the cockpit dinette seating area that comfortably fits six. Further sunbathing areas include the bow deck, with bow sun pads. The cockpit empties out onto a full-sized, Custom German dual stage hydraulic swim platform, allowing easy access to the water or simple management of your tender or jet ski. For added convenience, there is a hot/cold fresh water shower for rinsing off after bathing, and underwater lights for night swimming and viewing sealife.

Additional highlights include maintenance free granite counters throughout the entire boat, a full teak flooring package in cockpit/swim platform makes for easy maintenance/safe footing and 3-color LED cockpit lighting for a variety of moods and environments.

Rounding out the amenities at the helm and throughout the boat are the Skyhook/Autopilot system & Cummins Vessel View, Dual 12' brand new Simrad top of the line NSS EVO3 MFDS GPS/Radar/Plotter, KVH Satellite TV system, touchpad lighting and thermostats throughout, and a remote-controlled windlass.

On the maintenance front - the hull, engines, generator and all serviceable systems have had comprehensive review and upgrade service in 2021 putting the owner of this boat well ahead of all of the competition.

This model is highly desirable and very rare to market as Cobalt built it as a limited edition.  You will be hard-pressed to find a more complete package in a luxury brand than this.    Don't wait - as it won't last long.  Call us to make an appointment and we will introduce you to your next boat.

Cockpit and Bridgedeck:

The design of this Yacht is unique in how it flows into the overall lines of the boat rather than looking like a protrusion, which you see on so many other express cruisers. Entering the cockpit from the swim platform you will instantly notice the quality of the materials used ranging from real teak decking, rich cream colored upholstery, over sized polished stainless steel and real granite counter tops.

A large wrap around lounge is to port and features a clever fold away teak table that is perfect for al fresco dining or cocktails. Across to starboard is a wonderful entertaining area / wet bar which features a cockpit sink, built in trash receptacle, stainless steel refrigerator, built in electric grill, and storage cabinet. The grill and sink are recessed under granite counter hatches that lift up and have polished metal splash guards on their underside.

The entire cockpit is air conditioned and heated, the air is supplied through polished stainless steel vents. The helm is forward to starboard and features a double helmsman seat, full featured helm and rich wood grain dash. There is a wide L- shaped companion lounge to port that is raised for great visibility and relaxation. Access to the bow sun area and for line handling is through a center windshield opening making it safe and easy to go forward although walking around on side decks is safe with adequate dimension. The cockpit has a stylish hardtop with tri-color LED lighting and a  full enclosure.

Cabin Layout:

Going into the cabin, it is very apparent that Cobalt was determined to use only the finest quality finishes throughout. Real leather, real granite, real glass tile, etc. were used throughout eliminating the "faux" adjective used in so many boats of this size. To starboard is a u-shaped lounge with high gloss inlaid wood table. Beautiful high gloss bow front cabinetry abounds and the area is flooded with natural light from unique side windows, ports and led lights overhead.

Glass tile is used on the floor and above is a rain shower head. Cobalt ingeniously used a fold out panel system that takes the full length mirror wall and clear panels to form a stall shower directly over the tile floor with the rain head above. A stunning bathroom that has no comparable in this class of boat!
