Robalo calls building world-class fishing boats its “passion and a way of life”; across more than five decades, the company has crafted a reputation for heavy-duty construction, legendary ride, and commitment to innovation.
Those attributes are embedded in Robalo’s versatile center-consoles, Cayman Bay fishing boats and dual-consoles—the full gamut of saltwater fishing boats. All 2023 Robalo models feature upholstery material made from 100 percent SiO silicone, making it virtually maintenance-free. Its angular resin technology offers enhanced durability.
Robalo’s new R250 Center Console is both fishing and family friendly, and comes powered by twin Yamaha 150s or 200s.
Its standard fiberglass hardtop’s powder-coated frame bears four rod holders, an electronics box, LED spreader lights and two speakers. Options include forward canvas, outriggers, other hardtop styles, and cockpit and underside color options.
The helm, with space for two large displays, is wrapped by front and side window glass, with an overhead vent. Hydraulic steering is standard; options include trim tabs, underwater lights, audio sound-system upgrade, and Simrad electronics.
This fishing-minded boat has a pair of 50-gallon cockpit fish boxes with overboard drains and pump, and twin 25-gallon insulated bow fish boxes draining overboard. The standard 30-gallon port aft insulated livewell has a transparent lid, LED lighting and adjustable flow valve.
Gunwales bear stainless-steel vertical rod holders, with dual combo shotgun/cup holders on the transom corners and six shotgun holders behind them. All cup holders drain to the deck or splashwell and overboard. Rod storage under the gunwales and on the hardtop structure are generous, secure, and handy for the fight.
Our newest model features the largest aft cockpit in its class, a side entry door, full glass windshield, and oversize hardtop.
