Regulator Marine officially launched the company’s biggest center console yet — the 2016 Regulator 41.
The boat was designed by the team that has been together since the company was formed, led by naval architect Lou Codega.
“It is 41 feet and it is massive. I mean, it is massive,” Joan Maxwell, who runs the company with her husband Owen, told Trade Only in early June. “I was just out on it yesterday on the floor, and like, wow, I thought it was big until they put the console on it, and then I thought it went from big to huge.”
Powered by triple or quad Yamaha 350 engines with HelmMaster, and coming in at 47 feet, 3 inches with Armstrong bracket and engines, the Regulator 41 is built to fish and designed for comfort. It features design elements that include a starboard dive door with in-deck swim ladder and side entry to the cabin in order to maximize real estate at the center helm.
“The Regulator 41 is everything our customers have been asking for in one package,” Maxwell said in a statement. “This is a boat that fishes like a center console, with a full 360 degrees of walkaround, yet lives like a cabin boat and lives up to its Regulator heritage every step of the way.”
Regulator’s largest model to date has oversized deck space and fishbox and storage capacity, plus two 40-gallon live wells.
The air-conditioned helm provides captains with room for as many as three 16-inch displays, with standard triple mezzanine seating behind the helm or the option of a 4X Deluxe Tackle Center with grill, refrigerator, sink and abundant tackle storage.
The optional tower with dual helm station makes easy work of trolling, with rocket launchers lining the ladder and additional rod storage in the forward storage box.
“With more than 47 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.
Regulator’s first 41 will cruise the East Coast this summer and fall, with stops at the Pirate’s Cove Billfish Tournament (Aug. 10-14 in Manteo, N.C.); the Newport (R.I.) International Boat Show (Sept. 17-20); the Progressive Insurance Norwalk (Conn.) Boat Show (Sept. 24-27); the Atlantic City In-Water Powerboat Show (Oct. 1-4); the United States Powerboat Show in Annapolis, Md. (Oct. 15-18); the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (Nov. 5-9) and other stops along the way.
