**246 Cayman **
If your image of a bay boat is limited to casting lines in protected flat water you haven’t seen the brand new 246 Cayman. With a No Haggle, Reel Deal price of $49,999 including a trailer, Robalo’s Cayman flagship far exceeds even the highest expectations when it comes to quality, styling, versatility and ride comfort. Robalo’s amazing Extended V-Plane running surface provides the shallow water maneuverability to fish shoreside close, but is also seaworthy enough to venture offshore even when whitecaps are showing. Inside, the 246 features U-shaped forward seating with innovative hideaway backrest cushions and a flip-up bench aft.A full height privacy head is a comfort plus rivals can’t match. Finally, the 246 has a deep and contoured hullside flare to create the driest ride possible.
