For 2020, Robalo has redesigned and replaced its 226 Cayman—the midsize vessel in its bay-boat lineup—with a new version (previously designated the S version) that features plenty of fishing perks as well as family comforts.

A retooled foredeck offers a step up from the bow seating to a broad casting space atop the anchor locker. That bow seating also comes with removable backrests. Beneath the seating lies a rod locker to port and a fish box to starboard.

Aft, the casting deck flips up to a bench seat. And with three livewells—two aft and one in the bow—anglers will find 80 gallons of live-bait storage.

The helm offers space for a 12-inch multifunction display, and the boat can be equipped with an optional hard-top and a four-rod rocket launcher.

The 2020 226 Cayman can be equipped with either a Yamaha F200 (mechanical) or an F250 (mechanical or digital). Other options include trim tabs, underwater lighting, a trolling motor and a Bluetooth/FM sound system.
