Robalo R272

Second largest in a line of seven center console models, the Robalo R272 is a lively package that reaches 40 knots with standard twin Yamaha 200-hp outboards.

The Georgia-built speedster has a Kevlar-reinforced and a variable deep-V hull. This creates what Robalo calls their “feather-soft ride,” which is stable and dry. The Robalo R272 is no exception.

Uncluttered on deck, the R272 has a flip-up transom bench seat for three and tubes tucked under the gunwale that hold six rods. A composite hardtop has four rod holders, lights and optional outriggers. Other cool add-ons include Garmin or Simrad electronics and a bait prep station that doubles as a wet bar.

A dive door is to port on the Robalo R272. Forward seats can be used as a casting platform with the cushions removed. Troll five lines simultaneously without tangling. A 30-gallon livewell will keep the bait fresh, and the high freeboard will keep anglers and kids safer at anchor or underway.
