Aboard Robalo’s 242 Explorer, family time knows no bounds. This latest addition to the Explorer series embraces the classic design of a center console, equipped with lux standard touches that let the entire family enjoy being on the water. From its spacious layout with fore and aft seating you’ll want to sink right into, comfort for the whole crew is built into every detail. Even on your longest weekend outings, features like LED cockpit lighting, a freshwater shower and fully‐equipped privacy head provide the convenience you crave to keep on going—day or night—while a bow filler cushion comes standard for effortless relaxation. When the fish beckon, angler must‐haves are easily accessible. A 16 Gallon livewell and 5 gallon bucket storage are concealed under the aft seat while twin 36 gallon fishboxes are located in the bow. Step aboard and you’ll see: there’s room for the whole crew on your R242 Explorer. You just need to set the itinerary.
From the bow of your R242, exploration is effortless. Enjoy the view from the comfort of ergonomic U‐ shaped seating, or add in the standard filler cushion for a comfy place to nap or sunbathe. The forward‐entry privacy head, complete with a porta‐pottie and port light, helps make the bow a center of comfort and convenience.
The comfort‐minded layout continues aft, where stylish L‐shaped seating is richly upholstered in tri-tone vinyl. For fishing fun, dinner on the water, or simply a place to kick back and enjoy the ride, the aft area can do it all with ease, helping you create a sense of home on the water.
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.
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.
A fishing trip feels like a day cruise when you're out on a Robalo. Engineered by the best for the worst of conditions, you will feel the difference that hydro-lift provides.
The extended running surface coupled with the tight aft hull corners delivers everything you need when you're taking sharp turns. These hulls drive like a luxury automobile.
Enjoy dry comfort aboard any Robalo due to our high freeboard. Feel secure in the deep cockpits. You'll be amazed at the size, all while maintaining a sleek profile.
With a forward keel designed to cut through the water like a knife, high-octane pleasure awaits. Quick acceleration delivers the ride of a lifetime each time you leave the dock.
