Default regulator 37

Interested in seeing details on this one--Hopefully MORE range than the 34/ 41.

Fills a need in their Lineup.

I love my 26, but sadly this will be the same as the rest of the boats in the lineup these days. It will be slower than the competition, more money than the competition, less range than the competition, and will only be forward seating. No thanks.

They build a beautiful boat, hopefully it's not all forward seating and life amenities.

I was expecting this thread to get a ton of traction on THT, but I guess it got overshadowed by the Merc "BIG" announcement.

I'm hearing pricing will fall out right between the 34 and 41-- so i'm guessing a $700k MSRP boat (don't shoot the messenger). Being pitched as a mini 41 (tower, sea keeper, etc.).

Steep price but should have ok economy and as other mentioned should fly -- +40% more HP than the 34'.

...and that formula works for them. That is their market niche and they sell every boat they make. They have a successful business model and it would make no sense to make boats like everyone else makes. Regulator is similarly to the boating world what Harley Davidson is to the motorcycle world.

As a former Reg 26 owner, I hope the company finds its way back to selling a product I would actually consider buying. When I upgraded from my 26, Regulator really wasn't in the picture. I looked at the 34 Reg briefly, but it lacked in my opinion vs. the competition. Would be good to see one of their boats with more range, more storage, more speed and better economy - I can deal with the forward seating. Time will tell.

Maybe the 31FS with 2x425 Yamaha falls into the ballpark of what you are looking for by Regulator. They claim it is the fastest they made at 65 mph.

yeah and how well has that worked out for Harley Davidson lately.... lagging sales, stock price down and desperately trying to reinvent themself... at some point the name brand dies with the clientele... You need to evolve ...

regs are heavy mothers which means a slower less efficient ride but when the seas get nasty 100 miles out I could give a sh** about any of it or forward seating, that’s what they are made for

Agree but it's weird to see them going heavy on the lux and less bluewater fishing because that's the crowd who'd be 100 miles offshore.

what do you consider “heavy on the lux”?

Granted I haven't rode on either brand. But quite a few members on here have been on Regs and Onslow Bays.

OB has been mentioned many times over as one of the best riding Mono's around.. By guys that have been on both.

OB's aren't light. They plane at a low speed. Way faster and way better MPG's than a Reg and cost a lot less.

So where is the benefit of the Reg weighing so much?

regulator 34 vs onslow bay 33

I think your response in #7 sums it up

I have had both Regulator, a 32FS and now an Onslow Bay 33. The OB is more purpose built, it is a fish killing machine. Almost moved up to the 34, but my wife wasn't making the decisions! I would love to see the Regs open the bow by removing the section right behind the anchor locker, but they haven't done that yet. They still build a beautiful boat.
