Wrap yourself in triple-tube pontoon luxury and performance in this new 254 LE3.
The glossy, powder-coated tubes, rails and ladder really caught our eye. And that finish is tough and resists stains to keep the boat looking great for years. Color schemes include black and beige or blues with whites and browns with beiges — all richly accented with interior design that includes several textures of vinyl over multidensity foam for a cushy ride in the biggest waters. Woven-grass-mat flooring adds richness and easy maintenance, and a faux teak aft platform sole is ideal for reboarding from a swim.
The luxury is enhanced with whisper-quiet Verado power that thrills you with speed without drowning the rushing of wind and water beneath a clatter of hardware. Further enhancing the quiet, solid ride is the full-length, solid M-bracket connection between the tubes and the deck crossbeams, which are set as close as 8 inches aft for strength and smooth operation. The skipper is pampered with automatic trim, power steering and multifunction gauges all designed to make the ride easy and, above all, fun.
For safety, the tubes are multichambered and pressure-tested for air-tightness. A backup camera to the Lowrance HDS 7 gives clear rear vision for safety. Even the gates feature recoil hinges, like those on a pool gate, and a self-closing latch that opens from the outside, so don’t worry about toddlers playing with the hardware.
Interior LED lights add a soft, cool glow to the deck and cup holders, plus white LEDs in the Bimini and storage compartments illuminate these areas.
Nobody wants to wrestle a Bimini top, so this one deploys or stows at the touch of a button. Every Regency boasts a 10-year bow-to-stern warranty for everything the company installed on board including lights and electronics, and there’s a lifetime structural warranty, transferable to the next owner. The ultimate luxury from the LE3 is peace of mind for your boating investment.
