We announce the draft genome sequence of Sulfitobacter sp. strain CB2047, a marine bacterium of the Roseobacter clade, isolated from a phytoplankton bloom. The genome encodes pathways for the catabolism of aromatic compounds as well as transformations of carbon monoxide and sulfur species. The strain also encodes a prophage as well as the gene transfer agent (GTA), both of which are prevalent among members of the Rhodobacterales order.
