INTRODUCING THE R160

WE PROMISED YOU A GAME CHANGER

We promised you a game changer and that's exactly what the action-packed new R160 delivers. Sized perfectly for first time boat buyers and skilled anglers alike, the R160 redefines what you can expect in a 16-foot center console. Robalo's Reel Deal Pricing makes the buying experience pure pleasure. The truth is that you have a sea of choices at 16-feet. And yes, the competition does it right...the difference is the R160 just does it better. Get onboard, your family weekends will never be the same. Under the gelcoat you'll enjoy classic Robalo quality through and through. Same durable Kevlar construction as our bigger center consoles. Same high quality stainless steel hardware. Same top tier vinyl and rich foam padding. Same precise attention to detail. It might be the smallest center console in the Robalo line-up, but it's big on quality, bigger on performance and supersized when it comes to family fun on the water. Best of all it's a Robalo through and through, no short cuts here. None.


 

REELING YOU IN WITH A LAYOUT
THAT DEFIES THE CENTERLINE LENGTH

 

Grab Rail

Casting Deck

Fish Box

 

The only thing better than the smile after catching your first fish is the roominess of the R160. Sixteen feet never looked or felt so good. Upfront, a sizeable casting platform is detailed with Diamond Lustre non-skid for sure footing while fishing. A sizeable insulated locker is perfect for stowing fish or icing cold drinks. Stainless steel insert rails can be upgraded with an optional high profile bow rail.

Robalo worked its engineering magic perfectly inside the R160. Aft the adult-sized jump seats that fold into a casting platform. A boater's-best-friend 5 gallon bucket stows in its own compartment below the port seat with storage and rigging access to starboard. A clever transom boarding step makes it easy to get back onboard after spending time in the water. The R160 is also equipped with an easy-access fuel tank. Neatly tucked below a hinged lid aft, not an awkward slide-out compartment, the fuel tank is easy to reach whether you're at a marina dock or filling up on the trailer.


 

GET UP AND GO

Robalo's sensational Extended V-Plane running surface stretches full length, giving the R160 a competitive performance edge over rivals. Look closely. The bottom extends beyond the engine bracket, creating built-in trim tabs and a longer running surface. The result: the R160 rockets on plane, tracks true, is exceptionally efficient in the all important midrange and tames moderate seas far better than you'd expect in a 16-footer. The goal was to chart new waters at 16-feet. Mission more than accomplished. Robalo's design team successfully combined a shallow water draft with a dry, soft and predictable ride in big water. At first glance, it's easy to see the R160's bloodlines are classic Robalo. Styling cues from the R180 and 200 ensure an award winning look. Ultra wide gunwales make access easy.

LOW SPEED STABILITY

Our hull design utilizes an extended running surface, allowing the "v-plane" to continue aft of the transom. This creates superior stability under nearly all driving conditions.

EFFICIENT FUEL ECONOMY

Less time at the pump means more time in the water and more money for bait. The hydro-lift provides a quick plane time, creating one of the most fuel efficient boats in their class.
