My Regal is SOLD 2-6-2010

Postby folieadeux » Fri Jan 08, 2010 12:22 pm

It is a sad day but I have listed my beautiful Regal 2660 for sale. The Admiral has decided to move out of the "cave" of the express cruiser and into a sedan bridge model with diesel engines. We boat close to 100 hours a year so the diesel decision is easy. The final decision on the next boat has not been made, but it is close. The top models in contention now are the Regal 3080, Silverton 38 Sport Bridge and Meridian 391 or 411.

If any of you are thinking about making the move up into your first express cruiser or moving down from your mega-boats, my boat is a perfect solution. If you have followed any of my threads on this site then you are know that I am always upgrading and making the boat better.

I am trying to sell fast so the asking price is only $26,500 including the trailer. I know at that price this boat will not last long so if you think you are interested please contact me quickly.

Neal, nice looking boat and good luck on your search. I too have been eying a larger boat but want to stay in the trailerable size as we go from Ohio to Florida and run over 200 hours a season. I can handle the weight of a 3060 but don't want to deal the the beam and wide load permits. The 2860 is basically the same as my 2565 with an additional 12" in beam and a little length. But I am having a hard time justifying the huge expense for such little gain. One day we'll stop trailering and dock something bigger at Wrightsville Beach but until then i may have to be practically and stay with the 2565. For the two of use if does everything we need.

Hey David,

Watch out with the 2860 as well, technically its 9.5' beam, which is over width in most states and will require permits as well. It won't be the “Joe Police” that will catch you its “Mr. Weights and Measurements” thats on the same highway as you!

Kind of funny story here, that our sheriff's weights and measurements guy pulled over the city guy hauling a wide load without proper markings! Feel the love between the two agencies! :mrgreen:
Thanks, Chris

Hey Neal,

After being spoiled by the quality of your Regal, I urge caution wrt the Silverton/Meridian reference. Meridian possibily better than the Silverton IMO. ;)

Joe , you are correct about the Regal quality. The difficult part is that we have decided to move into a sedan bridge boat and as you know regal only makes the "**40" model sedan brige , so if that model does not fit, we must look at other brands. The Regal SB has a small bridge and the salon is not as large as the Meridian or Silverton. Our most recent choice is a Meridian 391 or 411, those salons have lots of glass and the bridges are huge. It is difficult to think about leaving Regal but their direction is to build more "sport coupes" and we are ready to get out of the "cave" of the express. The Admiral wants to be able to spend a entire week on the boat and you really need a lot of space to do that with comfort.

Buyer picked up the boat this morning and is hauling it to TENN as I type. It was very sad to see her go, the memories made on that boat will last a long time. Got one last short cruise this morning with the new owner on the sea trial , weather was nasty but boat was beautiful. I was proud of how much value the Regal retained since I only lost $5K (not counting my upgrades) in the four years that I owned the boat.

Now the search is in high gear for the next boat. Admiral has authorized a sedan bridge not to exceed 40 foot so I got lots of options. Looking at the xx80 Regal, Meridian and Silverton. Admiral really loves the Meridian 391, the salon in that boat is killer! I will keep you updated.

I'm sorry to see her go too. Having the same boat and planning to do some of the same modifications you made, I still plan on asking you a lot of questions :) I'd be very happy if I could get all but 5K back in 4 years from now! Good luck with the search for a new boat.

Congratulations Neal.... that didn't take too long.. we still have our Regal for sale.. but the weather here has been non conducive to trying to sell anything.. we've got all we can manage to try to stay warm.. hopefully, that will all change in the next few months..

before Meridian became Meridian it was a Bayliner. They change the name to Meridian because no one wqanted to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a Bayliner. They are still made by Brunswick and as far as I can tell they are still Bayliners.
