About Pathfinder Boats
The boats created by Pathfinder are the direct result of concepts and input from an angler-driven design team, pro guide staff, and a loyal core of customers. Each and every model and feature starts with the idea of improvement and problem-solving. Pathfinders have been conceived from the ground up and are focused products born to put dedicated anglers on fish and to do it with comfort and safety.

Pathfinder launched the bay boat revolution in 1998 and is still number one, offering both V-hull and high-performance stepped hull models from 22′ to 26′.

About Cobia Boats
Every Cobia model is designed with a results-first approach which puts the user’s specific needs and wants above all else and leaves no room for compromise. From there, the team’s experience as serious anglers, avid boaters and craftsmen gets to work designing a boat that will be more productive, more comfortable and more enjoyable on the water for families and anglers alike.

Cobia builds 22 different models ranging from 20-34 feet in the bay boat, dual console and center console categories, including the nation’s top-selling center consoles from 26-34 feet.
