Edenton, N.C.–based Regulator Marine recently sold the 1,000th Regulator 26 offshore fishing boat.

The boatbuilder started in 1988 with the 26, its first boat. The solid success of the early 26s laid the foundation of their business, which manufacturers a product line of eight boats.

“We knew exactly what we wanted for our first boat,” said Joan Maxwell, Regulator co-founder and president. “We wanted a great running hull that would take a pounding, be quick and maneuverable, and with lots of fishability.”

Regulator currently manufactures and sells about 10 of the 26s a month. The 1000th 26 came off the line Aug. 4.

Earlier this year Maxwell was honored with the 2003 Darlene Briggs Woman of the Year Award by the Marine Retailers Association of America. www.regulatormarine.com
