Robalo's fleet now extends to 13 models spread between walkarounds, center consoles and dual consoles. This R305 serves as the flagship of the four boat walkaround lineup. She's designed to serve as a crossover between family cruising and fishing with a bit of overnight thrown in for good measure.
The mission of the Robalo R305 is to create a roomy crossover boat between fishing, family activities, and overnight capabilities. She successfully bridges the connection between these three tasks in a good looking platform that is easy to handle.

• Pullman Style Forward Berth-the forward settee easily converts to a berth by lowering the table and adding filler cushions. The seatbacks also flip up to form Pullman style berths allowing four to sleep in this area, creating an example of creative use of space.
• Creative Cockpit Bench Seating-we’ve seen aft bench seats that fold up flush against the transom before, but this one seems to have a more functional take on the design. It deploys and stores easier than most and the entire assembly lifts to reveal storage in the transom for batteries, battery switches and charger.
• Standard Hardtop-and this hardtop includes an electronics box, fore and aft spreader lights and drop down life jacket storage.
• Dual Livewells – One is a 25 gallon (94.6L) and the other a 30 gallon (113.5 L) at opposing corners of the cockpit.
• Multi Function Helm Deck Seat- converts between forward facing, aft facing and flat chaise.

With a pair of 300-hp Yamaha 4-strokes powering our test boat we reached a top speed at 5900 rpm of 52.8 mph. At that speed fuel burn was 51.75 gph giving us a range of 275 miles. Best cruise came in at 3500 rpm and 28.8 mph. That reduced the fuel burn to 16.9 gph which the R305 could keep up for 16 hours and 460 miles while still maintaining a 10% reserve.
When accelerating the R305 her bow comes up 16-degrees which causes a brief loss of visibility to the horizon. Once underway she settles into a 7.5-degree bow high attitude and it only takes a couple of shots of up trim to get her into the cruising attitude. When turning, the R305 leans 12 1/2-degrees into the turn which I found comfortable. When taking power on she settles back into the water at a level attitude.
