Full Review:

Overall, I love this boat. Most of the quality is superior however there are a few exceptions. First one is Volvo’s mess- I had a gear shear that tore up the lower unit. It was fully covered by the warrenty but I was without my boat for 6 weeks in a Michigan summer. And that issue caused gear lube to push through the seal and got all over inside the hull below the deck which has been impossible to fully clean. Next issue was the fuel pump started squealling. It turned out that none of the fuel line and fuel tank attachment parts were torqued allowing too much air and not enough fuel that was making the pump squeel. That is completley Regals fault, but it was not covered. I fixed it myself. Last issue was a mix up at the dealership, I ordered the boat with a 240 HP and it was delivered with a 200HP, daealer took care of it by giving me double the upgrade cost off the boat. The 200 is fine 90% of the time so I am satisfied with the discount. I wish I would have went with the upgraded audio system from the factory as I am doing it myself now at a much higher cost. I wish they would have used higher quality swivel board racks. I have had several issues with them. Good thing- is it is easy to find parts on the forums because most people replace them with a better one and have them laying around in their shed. We use this boat A LOT. and, up to now, all those issues have been resolved. The layout, and quality of the seats are excellent. It handles great, we have been out on some large inland lakes and not had any worries. Fixing things is part of being a boat owner. I would buy another Regal next time, of course a little bigger.
