Default Pursuit vs. Regulator

Hello to all. I have been ghosting along for about 6 months learning a lot from evryone! I am considering a move up in boats "footitis" has hit hard no thanks to this great site! I currently own a 26 ft Sea Hunt with T/200 Yams, Great boat with nice fuel economy and layout for family(wife and 4 kids). I have caught the offshore bug and am thinking about a hull with a more aggressive deadrise. So far I like the layout/looks/hull of the 29 ft Regulator and the 310 Pursuit. I fish out of Kiawah Island. SC. Offshore runs 20-65 miles so far. Does anyone have any thoughts and/or real world experience with these 2 boats. I will of course sea trial them both before purchasing. Appreciate any input!

Just add GW to the subject and you will have 5 pages of discussion in an hour or so.

Seriously,

They are both nice boats. I have not been on the Pursuit but I crawled on the Reg 29 at last years boat show. I would also look at these:

Southport 28
GW 30
Jupiter 29
Contender 27

There are not too many people who have experience with 29 Regulators because not too many have been built. Those two choices are quite different categories of boat. The 29 Regulator is one of their nicer models in still having a good ride but not being as heavy as a 32 and thus being a bit faster and more efficient. I don't have much experience with the Pursuit but it will not ride as well in rough offshore conditions if my limited experience with them is any indication. It does have more in the way of creature comforts and accomodations and will get a little better fuel economy in most conditions.

I have had various Regulators for 11 years. I think you would find as a general matter that they are better suited to offshore fishing than the Pursuit. You just have to choose the balance of attributes you want -- go do those seatrials. Both are well-made, nicely finished boats so it will be hard to make a big mistake.

I've done some fishing in a 31 pursuit. It was a pretty nice ride, but a good amount of spray and some pounding. I have owned a 26 reg, and it was a sweeet boat, and I assume the 29 is just as good if not better. I would go regulator.

Boating MAgazine did a comparison of 4 center consoles this month and included the pursuit, GW, edgewater and another boat. was it the regulator? you may want to look at that article. the new pursuit 310 is supposed to be their best riding hull. it has more deadrise than the family style pursuits (like mine). I think they are well made boatss but I have not been on that boat. I think the regs look great too

Cmont66,

Welcome. Great choices, can't see you making a mistake either way. My decision going with Pursuit was easy, great local dealer with a proven to me track record.
If you ever get up this way shoot me a e-mail.
