Robalo Boats introduced two new fishing platforms — the 206 Cayman and the R222 Center Console — at its recently completed 2014 International Dealer Conference in Key Largo, Florida. The 206 is the company's entry into the fast-growing bay boat market; it combines a shallow-draft hull and a 15-degree extended V-bottom design with aggressive hull flare. The hull draws 10 inches and weighs 2,700 pounds.
Twin casting platforms, three livewells, twin fish boxes and ample rod storage set the 206 Cayman apart, Robalo says. Prices start at $29,995, including a tandem-axle trailer and F115 Yamaha.
The new R22 builds on the success of the R180 and R200. At $39,765 it’s the largest center-console offering in Robalo’s nationally advertised sales program. The boat comes with a Yamaha F150.
Sporting a 21-foot, 6-inch centerline with a trailerable 8-foot, 6-inch beam, the R222 features standard twin 30-gallon fish boxes, an enclosed head in the console, a 15-gallon livewell, Kevlar construction and a 10-year limited hull warranty.
