2012 Regal 38 Express

Chicago, Illinois


Freshwater, Black and Desert Sand Hull beauty ready to be viewed by her new owner.

In a market crowded with midsize family cruisers, the Regal 38 Express ranks near the top in luxury, performance, and quality. Regal sold a lot of these boats. Aside from her stylish appearance the Regal’s spacious interior—a blend of high-gloss cherry joinery, Corian counters, and leather upholstery—offers a level of comfort and elegance found in the finest European sport yachts. A solid wood pocket door ensures privacy in the forward stateroom, and the salon flows seamlessly into the mid-cabin creating a wide-open area for entertaining. The starboard settee folds out to become a double berth, and the chest-level refrigerator is positioned above the galley rather than below—very thoughtful and very convenient. The galley also includes a two-burner stove, microwave, coffee maker, and a tip-out trash bin. The Regal’s unique cockpit is designed with a horseshoe lounge opposite the helm and a foldaway seat aft. The entire aft section of the cockpit deck lifts electrically for engine access. An excellent performer, Volvo 420hp 8.1L gas I/Os cruise at 28 knots (mid 40 top).
