Who makes Regal Boats?  

Regal Boats opened its doors as Regal Marine Industries in 1969 by Paul and Carol Kuck with the goal of starting a family-owned and operated boat building company. The dream lives on today by their three children Duane, Tim and Pam. 

Where are Regal boats manufactured? 

Regal Boats are still manufactured in Orlando, Florida today. 

Are Regal boats good quality?  

Regal Boats is a reputable brand that has won the J.D. Power and Associates Award for “Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Express Cruisers (24-33 feet)” three times over the last 20 years. They are well known for their patented FasTrac Hull, offering excellent speed ranges, while many also enjoy the smooth ride, comfort, luxury style and designs available in their 35+ models. 

Is Regal a good ocean boat? 

Yes, you can use your Regal boat for longer ocean cruises, however, be aware that it’s recommended to cross an ocean with a minimum yacht of 40ft or more in order to ensure a smooth, comfortable, and safe ride. Should you wish to test the waters, many enjoy the small crossing from Florida to the Bahamas to see how their boat fares in rougher ocean waters, without worrying about being on board for weeks at a time.

What boat is better Regal or Cobalt?

How much are Regal boats?

What is the life cycle of a Regal marine boat?  

Most people will keep their Regal boat for around five years. Many yacht owners may feel the need to trade in their yacht model for a larger or smaller size (depending on their stage in life) or want to move on to a different style of yacht.
