Until now, other surf boats have compromised ride, comfort and performance. That is until now. We have combined our award winning, smooth ride and the performance advantages of a stern drive with the enormous wake-making capabilities of a surf boat. Let us introduce the Cobalt R5 WSS Surf. The WSS Surf features a patent-pending surf control system – which automatically tunes the boat’s attitude to the optimal surf configuration. The WSS Surf combines all the advantages of a stern drive coupled with the wake-making capabilities of a forward drive. The wake out back is fully customizable providing smooth transitions and a wide push zone. You can thank our twin propeller system and fuel-efficient gear ratios that provide better fuel economy, even at top speeds.
Surfing Made Simple
With the touch of a button Cobalt’s automated computer control surf system adjusts the Bi-Axis Surf Tabs to create the optimum surf wake either left or right. No need to transfer ballast load between tanks to achieve optimum surf wake.
Fill ballast tanks
Set GPS directed cruise control to desired speed
Select surf control left or right
Throttle up and surf
On Plane with Full Ballast
In Performance Mode the surf tabs automatically deploy and adjust for a quick hole-shot through to running speed, easily getting the boat on plane with full ballast. No need to empty tanks for a quick run at speed.
Performance of Total Trim Control
Exceptional wake surfing doesn’t come at a compromise to Cobalt’s softer, drier, faster ride. With the versatility of full-range power trim all the control and efficient operation remains. Drivers can easily customize the wake for surfing, wakeboarding or smooth cruising. Plus, Volvo’s Forward Drive is uniquely engineered with two forward-facing counter-rotating props, which position the propellers to the front of the drive unit, well under the boat.
The best aspects of boating by providing a world-class ride combined with a superior surf wake.
