Robalo releases details on new models


Robalo is releasing more details of the new models it launched at its 2014 dealer conference in Key Largo, Fla.

Robalo introduced two new boats — the 206 Cayman and the R222 Center Console.

The 206 Cayman is Robalo’s entry into the fast-growing bay boat fishing arena. Prices starting at $29,995 include a tandem axle trailer and F115 Yamaha four-stroke power.

Robalo engineers have sought to mix a shallow-water draft with a 15-degree extended V-plane bottom design and an aggressive hull-side flare so inshore or offshore anglers can travel where the fish are biting. Inside features include twin casting platforms, three live wells, twin fishboxes and rod storage.

The R222 is $39,765 and is the largest center console in Robalo’s nationally advertised sales program. The new boat comes standard with Yamaha F150 four-stroke horsepower. It features a 21.5-foot centerline with a trailerable 8.5-foot beam and comes standard with twin 30-gallon fishboxes, an enclosed head in the console, a 15-gallon live well, Kevlar construction and a 10-year limited hull warranty.
