My first boat was a used 1999 2150 LSC. Great boat.

Now I have a 2003 2465.

Selling the 2465 to move overseas. Probably look for a used boat in the 30-36 foot range upon repatriation.

Our 1989 Regal 280 Commodore is our first Regal.
We kinda hate to get rid of it - which makes trading up to a newer larger boat a tough decision - since we still like it so much.

She should still have many good years left in her.

Surprising to see no 5+ owners yet. I'm guessing one of the 5260 owners will make that exclusive club....

Shheeeaaahhhh! Right.

My only Regal was a 2001 2465 in 2005 with 39 hours on her. Once I dialed in the prop, she ran like a scalded rat at 2 MPG. Damn fine boat. I traded her for a '99 330 Dancer. Three reasons.

1. Regals in that size were out of my price range. Regal was definitely a nicer boat inside.

2. Center windshield walk through, low railings and no walkaround to negotiate dockings.

3. No trade in's accepted at Mears Point. When I told them I had a Regal to trade, I was treated as a bastard stepchild and was obviously just a poser not worthy of their time. I guess I was supposed to be impressed by his gold chains and Rolex. Very bad taste in my mouth from that and that was 2 years ago.

Last August 2006 I purchased my first boat since getting rid of my 20 foot Hobie cat back in 1999.

She was a very well kept 1994 Sea Ray 270 Sundancer 27 foot...Put 50 hours on her between August and April...

Traded up for a 1999 Regal 292 Commodore, our present "Baby Gator".

Simply no comparison.

We looked at a 2001 Sea Ray 280 'Dancer but the Sea Ray dealer had the '99 Regal 292 with my name all over it.

I almost bought a 2000 2760 from the Regal dealer 2 years ago, but it was just out of my price range...when Sea Ray offered me a heck of a trade, we jumped at the opportunity.

Since making the jump to Regal, we couldn't be happier! Fit, Finish, Styling, Features...All top notch compared to the local competition - Sea Ray, Larson, Rinker, Bayliner, Maxum are all the main local brands besides Regal.

Then I found you guys...so when the wife doesn't want to go out on the water, I can still relax with my time!

I am definately learning...here are a few for everyone's pleasure:

1st, for Comparison purposes: The old Sea Ray


Now the 292 Commodore:


I think we did ok moving up to a Regal. Not that I have anything against Sea Ray; actually mechanically the '94 Dancer was in much better shape than the 92 hour '99 292 we bought...we've had to pour a good bit into it to bring her up to snuff mechanically as many on here have heard. :)

Enjoy!

Did some one mention Rinker & Bayliner in the same sentence w/ Regal. I thought this thread would have people that actually knew something about boats.
I have had a few Whalers a Grady and a Tiara. Just bought a 08 Regal 3760, it's a step down in Quality from the Tiara but w/ 420hp IOs it is alot more fun. Doesn't fish as well but thats not the prioriy it once was.

I suppose I have to weigh in since Rommer is counting. I have owned a 94 233. That was our first cruiser which we purchased after our house boating group broke-up. We found we liked getting away from everything on the water. So a cruiser was the logical choice. Then in 1996 Regal came out with the 292. We wanted one and it took another 2 years to buy the new 292. We still have it and tow it to many exciting places. I have been thinking about a bigger Regal, the 3360 but I would really like the 3760. Either way, I would need a bigger truck to pull either one and my wife says no new truck! So we will keep the 292 which has been a fantastic boat for the size.

I realize this has been a topic for quite a while, however I just bought my 1st Regal. I looked at virtually everything on the market and decided on a 4460 with IPS. Cant wait til spring. This will be my wifes and I 14th boat in the last 26 yrs. From what I can see it will match up to most anything on the production line.

Cant wait!

My first boat was a Bayliner 2655 which I had for a couple years. I then bought my 95 Regal 322 in 2003 and couldn't be happier. I've considered moving up (newer, bigger) many times, but haven't done so.....yet. Last year I added an extended swim platform and it's been the best upgrade I could ever imagine.

One but the wife had me trade it, worked out as the insurance company was trying to screw me on a repair. I miss the quality and well, regality of a Regal. We went up in size and paid for it by going down in quality. Bought a Maxum, not a bad boat and suits us fine but the number one place I notice a huge difference is hull quality. The marine inspector that came out told me how much he loved the solid glass hull of the early 90's Regals.

We've had a blow boat and 4 power. The Regal 98 292 Commodore is our newest and first Regal. It won't be the last! At 50+ years, I've been on a lot of boats over the years and have been boating since a little lad. Everything about this boat is perfect. This year or next, we will be going up in size and it too will be a Regal - without question! Yes, a tiny bit of money has been spent on maintaining it (well ok, a ton of money) but given where we keep it and the environment it's run in, it has been a jewel.

Good luck with her. I have a 1999 2760 which I bought used with 360 hrs in 2010. She has the twin 4.3s with alpha ones. It now has approx 560 hrs. Other than normal maintance the boat has been great. Ive taken her from the Hudson river to Block Island RI.
