I recently sold my Formula Fastech and went about a month without a boat but got the bug for something a little different. I shopped for a center console that I could use on the Inter coastal in NC. and the Robalo R200 made the most sense. I was impressed with the high freeboard , boat weight and the enclosed head for the ladies that the Robalo offered! One of the factors I took into consideration was height on the trailer. My house is elevated (a block from the ocean) and i needed something that would fit under the house. I shopped several dealers and came across All Seasons Marine, a Robalo dealer in CT. The website showed three 2017 R200's in stock. I settled on a Shark gray R200 with the Bimini, a Yamaha 200 and several other goodies. The T top would have been nice but I was fighting the height issue, so the bimini made more sense. Before the final purchase, I had Nathan, the owner of All Seasons measure the overall height for me with the boat on the trailer. I wound up to be 3" to tall to fit under my house. Nathan did some research and found the folding windshield option and threw it in to make the deal. Robalo shipped the windshield directly to my house within two days! I installed the windshield (good quality item) and backed the boat under the house with three inches to spare.
All Seasons Marine went the extra mile for me on this purchase! It was worth the ten hour trek to CT. The performance of the Robalo with the Yamaha 200 is great. I was worried about this, coming from the Formula Fastech. The only issue with the boat is the Bimini top. When folded down, eats into the padding on the rails. I believe All Seasons has two 2017 R200's left in stock if anyone is shopping for a new boat.
