The laziest way to describe the 2100 would be to say it's just another 21-foot bowrider. But you don't know what it's like to own a boat by giving it a 30-second once-over with the eyes. After the better part of a day with the 2100, we concluded it is in no way just another 21-foot bowrider.
Early during our test, we twice got it confused with Regal's much larger 25-foot bowrider. Clearing up the confusion led us to understand the ideas behind the 2100. In an effort to reduce waste, Regal decided to weigh the scraps from the early prototypes. That led them to ration the resins more closely, using closed vacuum mold on the hull. The new green, lower-polluting process removes air and excess resin for a tighter bond and lighter hull. As a result, the 2100 actually weighs 150 pounds less than its smaller brother, the Regal 2000, yet industry experience indicates the process makes this model stronger.
As for the larger cockpit, the engineers stretched it out by scaling down the consoles and sun pad and shortening the bow. Why? Boaters most often use the cockpit and transom area, so adding space to those spots made the most sense. Use the 2100 over the course of a day, as we did, and you realize how different it is the moment you tie it up and step back into just another 21-foot bowrider from someone else.
