Robalo Boats Good Or Bad
20 to 30 miles out.
Robalo boats good or bad. I did have the transom redone about 5 years ago but that was due to lack of a good sealer when the engines were mounted. A leader in the marine industry since 1968 Robalo is renowned for its heavy-duty construction legendary ride and unwavering desire to stay on the cutting edge of innovation. There are a couple threads on various forums debating this topic so seems a good place to hear the more positive side would be here.
For the purposes you describe non-ocean not much fishing Id go cheap. I bought the rig in 1994. Outfitted with our Hydro Lift multi angle hull design horizontal tubed rod storage SeaStar tilt hydraulic steering and a 25 gallon live well.
The Good the Bad the Ugly. After a year of fishing mostly inshore 10-15 miles off the beach the Robalo had rattles in several locations and the icebox door would no longer seal. The Robalo was an ok boat but the fitfinish was no where near as good as the Whaler.
At Robalo building world class fishing boats is a passion and a way of life. Mainly because of the look as both boats are tanks. Robalo produces Walkaround family fishing boats Bay Boats Center Consoles and the SUV of the water our Dual Console Models.
Top 10 New Fishing Boats for Under 20000. Both are good boats. For the money the robalo is hard to beat and even the R200 i bought feels more than enough for the fishing I do.
To give you an idea the sides of the console are 14 glass 34 ply and another 14 glass. Recently serviced ready for the ocean. The R230 is perfect for those with the desire for endless possibilities.
