Regulator Marine celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and also celebrates the construction and sale of 1,525 Regulator 26s. An iconic boat, the Regulator can claim to have been the forerunner of the modern composite-constructed, deep-V center-console with a refined fit and finish. We welcomed a test of its progeny, the Lou Codega-designed Regulator 25.
Codega has designed all of Regulator’s hulls since that very first 26-footer. But this 25 signifies a departure from business-as-usual for the company. For example, the most significant change can be found in all the compound and radius curves, in both the hull and the all-new center-console. Regulator involved many of its dealers in the design process, who in turn relayed owner input, and the net result is as beautiful as it is functional, rugged and fishable.
What are some highlights? The console is so big that you don’t need an overhead electronics box. Everything you want can fit at the helm. Our test boat sported twin 12-inch Raymarine e Series HybridTouch displays plus autopilot, VHF and Yamaha Command Link screen, as well as an optional Fusion entertainment module.
I noted several other appreciated features, such as the standard screened porthole in the head that provides additional ambient light as well as ventilation, optional tracks for Regulator’s console-side curtains and an optional complementary color on the underside of the new, considerably larger T-top. The helm seat doubles as a bolster leaning post without needing to fold anything down, and it hides catchall stowage beneath the seat. Also in the catchall department, a molded ledge with a fiddled edge to keep stuff from sliding off is located just behind the steering wheel, and it even has a rubber bottom to protect fragile gear. Additionally, a deep glove box, also with a rubber bottom, provides a pair of 12-volt receptacles for cellphones, searchlights, etc.
