The Robalo R360.

She is also a serious, horizon-chasing fishing platform with lots of power for getting offshore and back. With an LOA of 36'6" (11.12 m), a beam of 11'4" (3.45 m) and powered by optional triple 300-hp Yamaha 4.2L V6 or triple 400-hp Mercury Verado outboard engines, this center console leads the way for the entire Robalo model lineup.

Features Inspection

The Cockpit

In laying out the cockpit area, Robalo designers and engineers made sure this center of action was equipped with all the necessary gear an owner could want. To that end there is a three-person, aft-facing, lift-up seat right behind the helm. When in the up position, it holds a 65-quart Yeti carry-on cooler. If the optional wetbar is chosen, the cooler goes away.

Robalo R360 in-deck storage

As you can readily see, in-deck storage includes 80-gallon fish boxes and there are port and starboard boarding doors.  Removable tackle boxes are found on either side of the seat. 

Aft on the transom, and to either side, are a pair of insulated livewells totaling 30 gallons with pumps and adjustable flow valves and clear plexi lids. The centerline seat folds up and is flush with the transom, creating more room for fishing in this area.

Easily secured in the up position frees up the fishing space.

Robalo R360 auxiliary boarding ladder

An auxiliary boarding ladder securely fits into the port cockpit door frame and stows in the bilge when not in use.

The Center Console

This well-laid-out area takes full advantage of the R360’s wide beam by supplying the center console space with plenty of room to build an impressive command and control station.

Offering a three-person seat with flip-up bolsters and armrests, and integrated teak footrest, the helm is all set up for casual cruising or for when the fishing action is hot and heavy. To that end a pair of flush-mounted Simrad 16” color touchscreen displays are to either side of the stainless wheel, with a control knob, a bonded windscreen with front and side glass and overhead vent in the hardtop, two USB charging ports, and a wireless phone charger are just some of the features located here.

The helm console and hardtop frame are available in black or white powder coating.

Robalo R360 helm equipment

For ease of safe operation, careful consideration was taken when planning out the placement of all the helm equipment.

The Bow

A unique feature found in the bow area is a console lounge. Wide enough for two people, the forward section easily lifts up to reveal a large storage space. But in true Robalo fashion, there’s more.

There are hinged side panels on both sides which easily open to reveal a pair of rod holders with cushion pads to protect the reels. Lounge seating is available with removable cushions that are easily stowed when room for fishing is needed. An optional table and bracket is also offered.

With all the compartments open, it’s easy to see how much-dedicated storage space is available. Note the tackle drawers on the port built-in.

Robalo R360 bow casting platform

With the cushions stowed, the bow becomes a casting platform. A stainless rail surrounds the space.

Robalo went all out when designing the R360 and that is especially represented by the cabin with an entrance on the port side of the console. Open the hinged door and it’s a few teak steps down into a rather unique space.

The mattress is covered with silicone fabric and storage is underneath. The overhead has 12V indirect LED lighting, CO and smoke detector units. The head is an electric freshwater toilet with a 10-gallon holding tank concealed under the molded lid. The floor and ceiling liner are fiberglass and the opening portlight has a screen.

The main distribution AC/DC electrical panels are also found here along with a sump pump. There is a removable access panel to the dash electronics and the vanity cabinet offers a solid surface countertop with a stainless-steel sink, faucet and 110V CGFI outlet.

Robalo R360 cabin

Easy to maintain and keep clean, the R360's cabin is an exciting feature on this center console.

Powered by a trio of 300-hp Yamaha V6 outboard engines, our test boat hit a top speed of 55.7 mph at 5920 rpm going through 67.3 gph. We found her best cruise at 3500 rpm with an average fuel burn average of 28.3 gph. The former resulted in a range of 290 statute miles while the latter had a range of 361 statute miles


We had calm seas on our test day. Driving in winds from 5-13 mph and with 175 gallons of fuel and four people on board, our test boat gave our crew a thrilling ride.
