2014 Cobia 217 Center Console for Sale in Merritt Island, Florida.
From the magazine "The Fisherman" boat and motor reviews, an excellent article on the new Cobia 217. "Cobia Boats’ lineup and mission statement have really come into focus over the past few years, ever since the Maverick Boat Company (makers of noted inshore and flats boats brands like Maverick, Hewes and Pathfinder, to name a few) got into the near-shore and offshore boat business. After the corporate takeover, the Maverick team took a fresh approach to the Cobia lineup, upgrading some designs and eliminating others. It also moved its manufacturing operations to the company’s Fort Pierce facility to better control design and quality... it’s been an impressive transformation where both the corporate culture and the finished product have gone through a positive paradigm shift.
...the 217 CC is a new design from the keel up and she bears little resemblance to similar-size predecessors. These next-gen Cobias are designed to provide their owners with maximum ergonomic functionality and are manufactured using the latest hi-tech fiberglass and composite materials."

Well thought out design in a family / fishing center console. At the bow a large anchor locker with single stainless pop up cleat. Entertain in the forward "V" seating: removable seat cushions, combing back cushions, stainless handrails, and drink holders, Sony stereo speakers and plenty of storage under the seats. Forward of the console a single half round seat that also serves as an insulated drink cooler. The 5-year-old cushions do show some wear.
The starboard side console door provides access to a Porta Potti, helm wiring and room to store additional items. Along both gunnels stainless pop up spring line cleats, similar cleats aft, stainless flush mount rolling rod holders and under gunnel horizontal rod racks. Fresh and raw water outlets at transom in each corner. A large live bait well in center of transom with jump seat on each side. Convenient are cup holders for each seat. Both seat backs quickly removable, behind the port jump seat a stainless boarding ladder.
The helm is a wide bench seat with 4-rod rocket launcher. Stainless steering wheel, Lenco trim tabs, Garmin GPSMap 740S, digital Yamaha gauges, ICOM VHF radio and controls for Clarion sound system. The family enjoyed fishing off Port Canaveral, thus the optional Tigress outriggers where often deployed.
Powerful 200hp 4-stroke Yamaha outboard engine, 3 blade Stainless prop, has just over 500 hours and was recently serviced.
A full cover protects the boat from the elements when stored on the aluminum AmeraTrail trailer. Both included in the sale
Recent model Cobia built in Ft Pierce by the Maverick Boat Company. This 5-year-old boat shows it has been lovingly enjoyed.. which is to say it's not new, it's not in perfect shape, but it might be the perfect boat for your family. Owner is open to reasonable offers. Come see this Cobia 217.
The 217 CC will run and fish comfortably in seas that will send a lot of other bigger boats pounding back to the dock. A wide open layout, deep sides and a level floor makes cockpit maneuverability easy and safe even in the worst conditions. Integrated aft seats, front console seating and two forward benches comfortably accommodate family and fishing partners.
Additional bigger boat touches include an overboard drained fish box and a wide open aft cockpit that allows for under gunwale storage of offshore rods and gaffs. With an integrated fiberglass foot pod with glove box, fully finished interior, and blue-hued, back-lighted switch panel, the console is as stylish as it is practical. The Cobia 217 CC is the best valued and most feature packed 21 footer on the water.
