Robalo‘s new flagship center console R302 features a Kevlar-reinforced hull with a 10-year limited warranty, and offers conveniences for anglers and comfort for families. At the bow, molded-in backrests provide cushioning but don’t get in the way when you need to throw a cast net or wrestle a fish around the anchor line.

Livewells behind the helm unit and in the transom offer plenty of bait storage, while 245 gallons of insulated fish-box space lets you store quite a catch. The transom bench seat flips down out of the way to open up the cockpit.

Standard features include a powder-coated hardtop with rod holders, electronics box, LED spreader lights and dual-color map lights; trim tabs with indicator lights; power-assisted hydraulic steering; and a walk-through transom door. The helm’s custom-bonded windshield comes with an overhead vent.
