Cobia 280 Dual Console Review done by Jim Hendricks of Sportfishing Magazine:
"This boat meshes offshore-fishing features with comfort and versatility."
I collected performance data inside the calm waters of the Intracoastal Waterway. Equipped with 18-inch-pitch Reliance three-blade stainless-steel propellers, the twin F200s vaulted the 280 DC to plane in 4 seconds. It reached 30 mph in 9.5 seconds en route to a top speed of 49.5 mph at 5,700 rpm. Optimum fuel efficiency occurred at 4,500 rpm and 37 mph, where the twin 200s burned 18.4 gallons per hour for 2.01 mpg. That equates to a cruising range of more than 340 miles based on the 172-gallon fuel tank.
The Cobia 280 Dual Console fits nicely between hardcore fishing machines and pure pleasure craft by blending the features that offshore anglers want with the versatility and comfort that nonanglers crave — and it all rides on a stable, seaworthy hull that helps keep everyone aboard safe and secure.
