Regulator Marine has eclipsed the 40-foot mark with its latest boat, and its creation was more a response to Regulator owners than simply joining the trend of offering bigger center consoles.
SPECIFICATIONS LOA: 41 feet, 3 inches BEAM: 12 feet, 6 inches WEIGHT: 19,700 pounds (with triples) DRAFT: 2 feet, 8 inches TRANSOM DEADRISE: 24 degrees POWER: triple or quad Yamaha F350s TANKAGE: 600 gallons fuel, 60 gallons water, 13 gallons waste PRICE: $595,995 (triple F350s), $649,995 (quad F350s) CONTACT: Regulator Marine, Edenton, North Carolina, (252) 482-3837. regulatormarine.com
“Many of our customers wanted a larger boat with more amenities,” says company president Joan Maxwell. “They didn’t want a true cabin boat, and they didn’t want a huge center console that was just that, a center console. They wanted a best-of-both-worlds boat that fished like a center console, with a full 360 degrees of walkaround, yet ‘lived’ like a cabin boat.”
The Regulator 41’s footprint gave the builder enough space to include a console that houses an enclosed head and shower, a fully equipped galley and a double berth.
The boat rides a Lou Codega-designed deep-vee hull. Codega has designed the entire Regulator fleet, which ranges from 23 to 41 feet. “This boat takes the ride to a whole new level,” says Maxwell. “Typically the longer a boat, the better the ride, so with this boat coming in at 47 feet and 3 inches overall [with engines and Armstrong bracket], it will give the best Regulator ride yet.”
