2018 Robalo R222
The R222, the famed robalo legacy continues.by Sulthoni, on
It had to happen. Parlaying the game-changing success of the R180 and the R200, Robalo takes its center console offerings up a notch for 2015 with the introduction of the new R222. The R222 is sold at a nationally advertised price. The keyword here is more. More centerline length. More storage space. More ride comfort. More seaworthiness. More fishing features. The only place where the new R222 proudly comes up short is its No Haggle, Reel Deal price tag. Key fishing features include twin 30-gallon fish boxes that can either keep your catch fresh or serve as storage areas. A 15-gallon livewell with LED lighting and a blue gelcoat finish is conveniently positioned under the standard leaning post.
