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.
Whether you're trolling with hooks in the water or motoring through the tough stuff in search of a trophy catch, Robalo's R300 center console flagship sparks an adrenaline rush unlike any other fishing boat. Unique style. Phenomenal overall performance. Dry ride. Best-in-class features. Featuring two oversized livewells, more than 245 gallons of insulated fish box capacity and a well-equipped bait prep center, the R300 is primed to tackle any fishing adventure. Combine a Kevlar-reinforced hull with a 10-year limited hull warranty and you'll enjoy complete peace of mind every time you take to the water. An abundance of rod holders ensure you're never more than an arm's length away from your equipment. The optional fiberglass T-top is the widest in its class, providing more sun protection than rivals. Robalo's 21-degree variable deadrise Hydro Lift bottom design can tame up to 700-horsepower so faraway GPS coordinates are never far away.
