We invite you to be a part of Futrell’s Cobalt family.

“When we are motivated by goals that have profound meaning, by dreams worth realizing, by love and passion that need expressing, then we truly live life. Our Cobalt family believes we have a unique opportunity to enrich life, to help create memories for lifetime, to evoke passion for the boating lifestyle.

We have set high expectations for ourselves. Our aspiration is to design and build the very best boats. Every time we succeed our owners are treated to a tremendously rewarding ownership experience. Each new Cobalt becomes the realization of one of our boat owner’s dreams. It marks the opportunity to create some of their life’s best memories. Our family’s craft becomes their family’s dream boat! It is an awesome responsibility.

At home in Neodesha, Kansas, we’re tirelessly designing and crafting the most innovative, well engineered, and best performing boats imaginable. We’re boat fanatics; fanatical about reliable innovation and design; fanatical about quality, the little details, fit and finish. Leveraging over four decades of boat building experience, we enthusiastically challenge ourselves to develop boats that excite boaters and improve their boating experience. We seek out the appropriate balance between hand craftsmanship and technological advances that will deliver the most innovative, well appointed, stylish and best built boats ever.

Equally as important our dealers, our partners, recognize how important an authentic and trusting bond is to the Cobalt experience. Our dealer’s perspective towards a Cobalt owner? Trust respect and responsiveness. When our customer’s need us…. “Drop and run!” is the attitude and approach we strive to have every time. Our owners invest in a Cobalt for many reasons, none the least of which is trouble-free boating. In addition, we treat each customer with respect and listen to their needs. To us, the purchase and ownership process creates a friendship, a trusting relationship that serves our boat owners needs and in turn creates a customer who helps us sell more Cobalts.

Together, as Cobalt associates and Cobalt dealers, we believe in looking inward to benchmark our progress towards our aspiration. We have never aimed to be the biggest boat company, just the best. And if our actions follow our words, which in turn follow our objectives, we will together be good stewards of what Cobalt stands for. We are Cobalt…welcome to our family.
