the lower Connecticut River in an area once known for ship building,
Cobalt Marine produces high quality, functional boats that combine traditional
lines with updated fiberglass construction. The electrically powered 13', 18' and 21'
models, products of owner/designer Phil Schiro's uniquely innovative and
practical imagination, offer simplicity of both design and operation by the use of
two submersible electric motors mounted inboard and independently of each other.
This system, similar to the Zee drives found in some tugboats and Coast Guard
boats, not only eliminates the need for a helm and rudder, but also affords
exceptional versatility and maneuverability.
The quiet calm of electric boats is a refreshing change from the pressured
of today's lifestyle, but it is their non-intrusive quality that allows us to actually
experience, first hand, the natural world of our lakes, coves, rivers and bays.
As you explore this site then, and those of our links below, consider the new
dimensions, interest - and enjoyment - a boat of this type can add to one's life.
