The new R266 Cayman from Robalo represents the largest model in the brand’s bay-boat line. But it’s more than an inshore fishing machine. With a HydroLift multiangle running surface, Kevlar-reinforced hull, deep padded midcockpit coamings, 110-gallon fuel capacity and power rating of 425 hp, the R266 offers offshore capabilities too. A hydraulic jack plate maximizes performance. A hardtop and three-sided glass windshield envelop the helm, which is wide enough for a pair of 12-inch multifunction displays. The leaning-post helm seat features a flip-up bolster. A 9-foot-4-inch beam lends stability on the bow and stern casting platforms. Crew can rest in the forward U-shaped seating nook with backrests to create a pair of loungers. There’s lockable rod stowage below. A double-wide seat folds out from the aft casting platform. The forward-opening console grants room for a marine head. A 30-gallon livewell resides under the aft platform, while a 20-gallon well lies under the bow deck. The base price of $114,795 includes a tandem-axle aluminum trailer.
