A premium quality line of outboard powered center console and walkaround cabin style sport fishing boats.
Marine Products purchased Robalo, a leading sport fishing boat brand, in June 2001 as a demonstration of its commitment to expand its portfolio of quality marine craft. Robalo Marine was founded in 1969, and its first boat was a 19’ center console salt-water fishing boat, among the first of this type of boat to have an “unsinkable” hull.
Today, Robalo manufacturing is located in Valdosta, Georgia. Valdosta is just a 30-minute drive from the Chaparral world headquarters, so Robalo benefits from a close proximity to the operating management of Marine Products while developing its own brand identity and integrating into Marine Products.
Robalo produced and sold its first two models as part of Marine Products during the fourth quarter of 2001. The Robalo sales force is selectively cultivating a dealer network, and has approximately 47 dealers. Robalo is currently offering 12 different models from 18 to 30 feet.
