Filling the gap between the R200 and the R242, Robalo Boats has introduce the R230, a single-engine boat that retails for about $60,000. For the money, the R230 comes with a 200-hp Yamaha F200XB outboard and a host of standard features that are often options on competitor’s models.
Some standard features include an aluminum tandem-axle trailer with LED lights, SeaStar tilt hydraulic steering, a 15-gallon livewell, molded gunwale inserts and a premium sound system. Buyers looking to upgrade the electronics can choose between packages from Garmin and Simrad. The R230 doesn’t come with a top, so potential buyers can add either a Bimini top ($1,175) or a hard top (starting at $5,770).
Seating consists of a U-shape lounge in the bow, a single seat in front of the console, a bench seat on the transom and helm seating for two. The console door, which can be locked, opens to reveal a large compartment with a portable toilet and an opening portlight.
