They sport Regal’s UltraLounge aft bench and convertible sunpad. The Regal UltraLounge has a multiposition backrest that converts from an aft-facing bench seat to a forward-facing bench seat, then to an aft-facing lounger and finally to a flat sunpad that is integrated into the cockpit arena seating. The aft portion of the sunpad can be lifted to a two-position, forward-facing lounger.

“Most boaters associate deckboats with ‘practical,’ much like minivans and SUVs — lots of storage, plenty of room for the whole family and relatively safe,” Regal president and CEO Duane Kuck said. “With our FasTrac hull, we made it sporty, similar to what Porsche accomplished with their Cayenne coupe, when compared to other SUVs.”
