Premium Fishing boats for both the Gulf and Atlantic
Founded in 1968, Robalo boats have been an industry standard in fishing vessels for over 50 years. The company only focuses on angler craft, though their boats are designed for both the Gulf and for Atlantic Ocean fishing. Hence the logo of the fishing hook. In additional to the larger Robalo boats for sale, those who do not wish to fish on the Gulf or the Atlantic can use the smaller vessels, such as the R180 CC on freshwater lakes, ponds, and some streams and rivers.Read More
Robalo Boat for Sale Models
There are four classifications of vessels offered by Robalo. These models are center console, bay boats, dual consoles, and walkarounds. Walk arounds consist of the R16, R18, R200, R200ES, R222ES, R222. Bay boats are referred to as the Cayman, in reference to the Cayman Islands. Boats are listed according to their sizes and include the 206, 226, and 246. Dual consoles include the R207, R227, R247, and the R317. Walkaround boats have R265 and R305. Since the boats are under 30 feet for the most part, buyers of Robalo boats for sale may need to take a cautionary approach to taking these boats into deeper water. The one to two engines which are available on these boats make them capable of going into the offshore waters, but it would be ill-advised to plan for long term or multiple day excursions.
New, Robalo boats range in the low hundred thousands to the mid hundred thousand dollar range. Pre-owned vessels depreciate in book value based upon the year it was purchased as well as the miles upon the motor. However, boats which have additional features, such as upgrades to the dual consoles with LED fish finding navigation increases the re-sell value.
Robalo boats for sale are made with a Yamaha engine. This is fairly standard for companies which are based in the Florida region. Those seeking the Robalo boats may find that on the older models, the owners have decided to equip the vessel with a Mercury engine, Suzuki, or other such brand. If the motor is different from that which was provided by the manufacturer, potential buyers should inquire whether the motor has a transferable warranty.
As angler boats, the Robalo boats for sale have larger beams and casting decks. A few of the models do provide the option of conversion of the bow to a leisure lounge. Rod holders are standard on the boat as well as rocket rod holders on selected models. Please see the boat review pages to gain details on a particular model of the Robalo.
