Regal Marine signs deal with My-Villages

Regal Marine joined the growing lineup of Innovation Partners at mobile technology company My-Villages.

“Regal is a well-established name in the marine industry, and we could not be more proud to have them as a partner,” My-Villages founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said in a statement. (Hutchinson is the owner of a Regal 5260.) “Pairing our technology with an award-winning innovator like Regal is going to yield some impressive results, both for Regal boat owners and Regal dealers.”

Regal, which has won multiple awards for its FasTrac Hull design and other innovations, will use the partnership to offer Regal owners the latest technology to share maintenance information and coordinate service.

“Today's boats require today's technology to help owners manage their vessels and that’s why Regal partnered with My-Villages,” Regal Boats dealer and customer relations senior manager Robert Dennery said in a statement.

“We were impressed with the maintenance reminder and service log functions in The Boat Village. But when we saw the ability for Regal owners to coordinate service electronically and share advice in real time, we knew this was something we wanted to offer Regal customers. This gives them everything they need in one easy-to-use system.”

Regal joins The Hinckley Company and more than half a dozen service yards that have partnered with My-Villages and signed on as Boat Village innovation partners.
