Robalo on display at Perth’s big new show

Dubbed an ‘international’ show because of the origin of many of the brands to be displayed;  Robalo, the U.S. market share leader and one of the most highly regarded brands around the globe, is adding its considerable presence to what is shaping up to be a massive Perth show, including an Aussie debut. 

From the same stable as the world class Chaparral Sports boat range, Robalo offer high spec offshore fishing boats from 16 to 32 feet in Centre Console, Dual Console (bowrider), Bayboat and Cuddy configurations.

Robalo will have a range of offshore Centre Consoles on display at this year’s show, courtesy of their local dealer Mansfield Marine.  This will include the incredible R160, the smallest in the Robalo fleet at around $50,000 BMT along with the R200 & R222, both perfect as Rottnest Island raft up rigs.

‘The R160 may be the baby of the fleet, but by no means is this rocket a light weight when it comes to its fishing and rough water credentials’; says Travis Mansfield. ‘We are always amazed at how this little beauty handles rough conditions, and we love the overall quality that comes with every Robalo’; he said. 

The R222 centre console is making its Australian show debut, adding to the strength of the Mansfield Marine line up.

‘Robalo has been gradually gaining momentum in the west’; says Scott O’Hare from Chaparral/Robalo Australia. ‘Western Australia is a unique boating environment, with plenty of offshore and coastal fishing options and of course the regular family run across to Rottnest or down to Mandurah;  Robalo’s are made for the job with our renowned soft riding Hydro- Lift hull, big fuel capacities and extra comforts to keep the whole family happy’; he said. 

‘Mansfield Marine has been doing a great job to convey that message and we are starting to see Robalo’s pop up all over the place, particularly in the 6.5 metre range as a second Rottnest Island boat for bigger boat owners.  The R200 & R222 centre consoles and the R207 and R227 Bowriders have been a popular choice’; said O’Hare.

Robalo can be found indoors at the Perth International Boat Show to be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and Elizabeth Quay from September 22nd to 24th .  For more information go to www.robalo.com  and www.perthboatshow.com.au  or Contact Mansfield Marine on (08) 9448-1100
