Regulator 23

While the all-new 23-footer might appear small on paper, the transom bracket isn’t accounted for and the true measurement is 27 feet 6 inches. Like all Regulator models, the 23 features a molded fiberglass stringer system that adds an enormous amount of strength to the hull while eliminating much of the stress at the deck, liner and hull joint. The Regulator 23 isn’t a monster, but the spacious layout provides immense storage including twin 160-quart insulated compartments under the forward seating, a 23-gallon transom livewell and a 120-quart transom fishbox. Furthermore, all deck hatches are finished on both sides and feature deep gutters to make certain gear stays dry. The bottom line is that the fishability and efficiency of this industry leading 23-foot powerhouse is unparalleled, with a single Yamaha 300 HP mounted on the transom propelling this soon to be classic to a top speed of just over 46 MPH!

Adapting to the growing trend of on the water connectivity, Regulator Marine recently partnered with Fusion to integrate their exclusive entertainment solutions including Bluetooth streaming and revolutionary FUSION-Link technology for access, control and communication with leading multifunction displays, remotes, compatible screens and popular mobile computing devices. If you’re looking for the most capable and connected 23-footer on the market you owe it to yourself to take a close look at the newest legend. Regulator Marine, 252.482.3837, regulatormarine.com
