Regal Marine says the week of Aug. 28 through Sept. 3 was its best week for shipping boats since 2007. The company did not release specific numbers, but it reports a steady increase in retail sales and says Regal dealers replenished inventory during the summer.

"Everyone at Regal is excited and extremely grateful that we have had this exceptional week," Regal president and chief executive Duane Kuck said. "We feel that more dealers are recognizing the exceptional value proposition that partnering with Regal represents. We are proud of our products and have been aggressive with programs that help our dealers sell Regal boats."

The company had planned to end the Regal Prime Time Sales Event promotion, but has decided to extend it through Oct. 31. It offers rebates on Regal's entire line of boats, which range from 19 to 53 feet, saving buyers as much as $50,000 on a new Regal boat.
