January 22, 2019 (EDENTON, NC) – Regulator Marine today announced the launch of an entirely new kind of Regulator – the Regulator 26XO. This new center console crossover is built for adventures, giving boaters easy access to lakes, bays, and skinny waters, as well as the capability to head offshore when the time is right. The announcement comes on the heels of a 55,000 square foot factory expansion that yields an additional 43,000 square feet of assembly and lamination facilities to accommodate Regulator’s growing fleet.
“Our customers and fans have been asking for a Regulator that can take them into skinny waters but still go offshore, a boat that maintains our commitment to quality and sportfishing but focuses more on the recreational aspects of boating and family time on the water,” said Regulator Marine President and
Co-founder Joan Maxwell. “In short, they want it all! The new 26XO answers this call and more. We can’t wait to introduce it to the world.”
Equipped with a Yamaha F300 with SeaStar Solutions hydraulic jackplate, the 26XO will feature more than 122 square feet of deck space, spacious seating for the whole family, and generous storage at every turn. These hallmarks of the Regulator brand are matched by the fit, finish and ride that have earned Regulator a reputation as one of the finest-quality boats on the market today. In fact, a look at the shearline of the 26XO may trick the eye, but a deeper dive into the design of the 26XO’s 17-degree deadrise reveals the versatility today’s boaters demand.
At the helm, the 26XO Seating & Tackle Center, Garmin 16 Fish Package, and Fiberglass T-Top with Integrated Wraparound Windshield will come standard; plus, fans will be able to choose from adventure-inspired amenities including a factory-installed Power Pole Blade for precise shallow water anchoring, removable watersports tow bar for tubing, skiing and boarding, and the versatile Minn Kota trolling motor with iPilot GPS. The have-it-all capabilities of the 26XO continue with flush-folding rear cockpit seats that can be flipped up for entertaining or folded down for an aft casting platform. Built-in coolers, stand-up head compartment, and integrated swim platform with retractable swim ladder add to the standout standards and invite families to play all day.
With its sportfishing heritage intact and an eye toward always giving customers more of what they are looking for on the water, the new Regulator 26XO is set to make waves when it is unveiled at the Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show on February 14 in the Regulator booth on Pier 4.
