MIAMI 2015: Regulator Marine unveils design of 41-footer


Regulator Marine unveiled plans for the new Regulator 41 at the Miami International Boat Show.

Designed by the same team that has been together since the inception of Regulator, led by naval architect Lou Codega, the Regulator 41 seeks to provide fit, finish and ride along with fishing and liveaboard amenities.

“Our customers were asking for more and we like to give our customers what they want,” Regulator Marine president Joan Maxwell said in a statement. “The 41 delivers the best of both worlds — a boat that fishes like a center console, with a full 360 degrees of walkaround, yet lives like a cabin boat. In order to provide this usable space below the console, the whole footprint of the boat had to grow; and wow did it grow – all the way to 41 feet.”

Powered by triple or quad Yamaha 350 engines with HelmMaster, and coming in at 47 feet, 3 inches, with an Armstrong bracket and engines, the Regulator 41 features design elements that include a starboard dive door, an optional tower with dual helm station and a convertible casting platform/table/sunbed that recesses into the forward deck when it’s not in use.

Side entry to the double berth provides room for as many as three 16-inch console displays and the aft mezzanine seating features built-in coolers.

“The design process was an exciting challenge because we were creating something to spec for customers who wanted a level of fishability in line with a large sportfisher, amenities on the level of a cruising yacht and, of course, the quality and ride that Regulator is known for,” naval architect Lou Codega said. “I am happy to say Regulator will meet and very likely exceed expectations with the new 41.”

The boat includes 960 quarts of insulated fishbox space, an 80-gallon live well with a double hatch and 1,060 quarts of storage boxes.

The berth is also expanded with a galley kitchen, standard heat and air conditioning, an enclosed shower and head and an LED screen with CD/DVD.

The boat has flip-up backrests on forward seats, a through stem bow roller with remote switch and a diesel generator.

“With more than 41 feet of sheer fishing power and plenty of room to entertain, we can’t think of a better way to live the offshore life,” Maxwell said.

The Regulator 41 will be available in the fall and the company said it has started to take orders.
