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.
