Default Need Weight on a Robalo 2440

Hi , I recently purchased a 2001 Robalo 2440 and I'm currently looking for a trailer. What I'm trying to find out is the weight of the boat. I've seen 5200 lbs on some websites in the internet, but i've also heard is heavier than that. Maybe that's without engines. Can anyone help me with this information? Thank you.

That was one of the places I looked. Mine actually has the twin 150's but the weight that nada states is the same. About 5200 lbs. But I wonder if this is without engines?

Most likely dry weight without engines. You'll want a rather heavy duty trailer. I can't recall the exact capacity of my trailer, but it's in the neighborhood of 10K. Mine's a 99 with twin 200s, so weight is probably real close.

I am thinking that has to include the engines. Would be a very heavy boat if not, and I would be surprised. Dry meaning no fuel/water empty wels etc.

If it helps, The weight on a 1995 2440 is 5395lbs with twin 150hp Mercurys - per the brochure I have.

I would place the weight with twin F150 at 6600# with 1/2 tank of gas. Add the doodas and fill the tank and it should run about 7000# You will need a trailer capable of hauling and 8,000# boat.

Add 1500# for trailer and towing weight should be right around 8,000# minimum. 500# less with two stroke classic engines. A lot of people believe the brochure weight includes everything and it does not.
