We had boatbuilders clamoring to participate in our tow tube test. We chose Regal’s 27 FasDeck RX for a number of reasons. As a deck boat, it maximizes cockpit space and features broad boarding platforms fore and aft, features that make it perfect for carrying a big crew and all the gear for a day of tubing. An enclosed head ensures the crew is comfortable. Its FasTrac hull planes flat, remains maneuverable at slower speeds, and maximizes fuel efficiency. Fitted with an electrically folding “power tower,” a Fusion audio system with six speakers, and arena seating, our tube testing proved the 27 FasDeck RX is an ideal family do-it-all boat.
