This builder of saltwater fishing boats is another that has gone through many transitions since its founding; in 1968, it began production with a 19-footer. During the next 40 years Robalo was owned by AMF, Cobia, and then Brunswick before being acquired by its current owner, Chaparral. The quality of the boats varied somewhat through these transitions, but under Chaparral’s direction (beginning in 2001) Robalo re-established itself as a premium builder of extremely high-quality fishing boats. Upon the acquisition construction techniques and materials were thoroughly enhanced and by 2010, every model in the line had been completely re-tooled or developed from scratch. Today, Robalo’s offerings range from an 18’ center console to a 30’ walkaround, plus a dual-console multi-use model line.
Robalo is going to change the way anglers go fishing with the incredible R200. If the boat's No Haggle, Reel Deal price tag doesn't convince you a Robalo should be your next boat, a power packed list of standard equipment and clever design innovations certainly will. Powered by a F115 Yamaha and packaged with an aluminum trailer with brakes standard, the R200 is anything but a bare bones fishing machine. Extensive rod storage, a multi-purpose interior, powder coated leaning post, stainless steel hardware and Robalo's award winning style lines put the R200 in a league of its own. Want to take the R200 up a notch? Custom options include a T-top, hydraulic steering, a porta-pottie and Command Link gauges.
