Chaparral Australia has signed up with its sister company to begin importing the respected Robalo fishing boat range to Australia.

The Robalo centre consuls, walkaround and crossover ski/fish bowriders are built alongside their Chaparral siblings sharing the legendary saltwater tough DNA synonymous with the Chaparral brand.

Rated among the most respected names in the fish boat business, the Robalo story dates back to 1968 and the company's first 19-foot fishing boat. Robalo was acquired by Chaparral in 2001 with a strong emphasis on R & D fuelled by Chaparral founder Buck Pegg's lifelong passion for Bluewater fishing.

'We have been working on introducing Robalo for some time,' says Scott O’Hare from Chaparral Australia.'There was never any doubt about the quality and performance of these amazing boats but we wanted to make sure that our point of difference was enough to carve out a niche in a highly competitive Australian market.

'We sought advice from some of Australia’s most celebrated and knowledgeable fishos who whole heartedly endorse the product and assisted in the initial ordering process,' says O’Hare.

'Robalo has always built premier quality, performance-minded fishing boats with a primary focus on the family fishermen who take their sport seriously. These guys have always been innovative and can be credited with a number of firsts - including taking the widely popular T-Top to the market.

Robalo has a long heritage -  Chaparral Australia  

'The Hydro Lift deep vee hull design is a recent performance breakthrough that sets Robalo apart from other fishing boat brands; providing a soft, dry and economical ride in even the worst conditions.

'These are impressive boats and we look forward to showing the Aussie fishing market what they have been missing out on.'

Offering outboard powered, single and twin engine hulls, Robalo has recently entered the entry level market with its R180 and R200 centre consul models starting from around $55,000 for BMT packages.

The popular R227 and R247 crossover ski/fish and the flagship R305 fish/cruise are designed to keep everyone happy and most importantly get the entire family out on the water.
