Regal Launches Its First Outboard-Powered Coupe


There’s no sign that the outboard revolution in boating is slowing down. In fact, it seems to be accelerating. A good example of this trend in propulsion is Regal’s 38 XO, an express coupe that utilizes triple 300-hp Yamaha F300 or 350-hp Yamaha F350 4-stroke outboards. It’s based on the Regal 38 Grand Coupe, which is powered by gas inboards.

The 38 XO made its debut at the Miami International Boat Show in February. And while it isn’t the builder’s first outboard-powered vessel, it is the largest to date and first outboard-powered model in the builder’s Sport Yacht lineup.

“Our new 38 XO outboard-powered sport yacht is truly one of a kind, delivering unprecedented performance with luxury cruising comfort,” said Regal CEO Duane Kuck. “Owners will cruise with little to no bow rise from 17 to 35 knots while enjoying top speeds of almost 43 knots. In addition, the 38 XO sports a premium-packed interior featuring a full cabin and cockpit designed to maximize family entertainment.”

Below is a two-stateroom layout with a master cabin positioned amidships under the main saloon and a VIP suite in the bow. The two share a unique standalone head and shower compartment setup.

Owners and guests will no doubt spend most of their time on the single-level aft cockpit/main saloon spaces, which are joined when sliding glass panels are opened and stowed. The galley is up and aft in the main saloon, situated conveniently close to the L-shaped aft cockpit lounge for easy meal and drink service.

The Power Islands

An Everglades center console with a shallow draft and 45-knot top end turns out to be the ideal platform for exploring the stunning Abacos islands.

Power to play: new outboards, sterndrives, pods and more

After several years of high-horsepower introductions, outboard manufacturers have shifted their focus to the midrange, with Yamaha debuting a much lighter 90-hp 4-stroke and Evinrude pushing out 2-strokes from 150 to 200 hp with its G2 technology.
