Introduced in 2007, the R305 Walkaround rides on a deep-V hull with a wide 10'6"" beam and a sharp bow entry. Standard features include an integrated swim platform, above-deck 30-gallon livewell (behind helm seat), 25-gallon transom livewell, folding rear seat, in-deck fish boxes, trim tabs, cockpit toe rails, windlass, tilt helm, pull-up cleats, cockpit rod storage, aft-facing cockpit seats, cockpit bolsters, and bait prep center. A bow thruster and generator are popular options. Below deck, the R305s roomy interior with teak (or maple) cabinets sleeps six and includes a teak-and-holly sole, full-service galley with microwave, standup head/shower, adjustable teak table, and convertible dinette forward with flip-up seatbacks. The small midcabin berth is better suited to kids than adults. Yamaha 250hp outboards top out at close to 40 knots.
