The decision to get out of town should never be made lightly. Nor slowly.

A yacht-certified cuddy, the Cobalt 263 looks . . . well . . . alarmingly fast. Looks in this case do not deceive. Give credit to the Venetian subtlety of the 263ís lines, to the unabashed aggression of the power humps forward, to 425 MerCruiser horses rumbling aft. And because the 263 is first, last, and always a Cobalt, the going fast is simultaneously going good. In the cabin, directly in front of the dash, stands a very large cedar-lined locker. A large settee sweeps around the bow, with filler cushions (stored in the sidewall) ready to replace the center table. A lower galley with a single-burner stove and a sink is both efficient and easy to use. The 263ís headroom must be felt to be believed, and new colors and fabrics throughout amplify the spacious feel of the cabin. Configured around an L-lounge, the cockpit is roomy and comfortable. The helm seating is double-wide, set next to a widened walkway. The cleverly concealed Porta Potti hides in the cabin below. With a walk-thru transom door, the activity platform has become an intrinsic part of the floor plan. A wet locker waits there in an extra measure of accessibility and convenience. Altogether, the 263 offers a singular bit of advice: vacate the city limits as soon as possible.
