Regal Boats unveiled the third model in its growing line of sport coupes, the all-new Regal 42 Sport Coupe. With the bold, aggressive lines of the Regal 46 and 52 Sport Coupes, the versatile, fast and fuel-efficient Regal 42 Sport Coupe is a sibling that is bound to create some royal rivalry.
“Our goal was to take everything we learned developing the Regal 52 and 46 Sport Coupes and distill what we ascertained down to the perfect 42,” said Duane Kuck, President. “We did everything possible to pack a wide range of features into a more compact envelope and still deliver strong performance.”
Equally adept at entertaining and offering a place to enjoy relaxing personal time, the cockpit can be completely opened up with the full-width sunroof and center-opening windshield.
In turn, the single level cockpit deck area can be fully enclosed with either a canvas aft curtain or the optional slide away aft bulkhead. Add a 24000 BTU air conditioner with reverse-cycle, and whether you live in the cold north or warm south, the helm and cockpit stay comfortable, extending the boating season.
The dash mounted Fusion® stereo system provides the tunes including a hide-away iPod dock behind the controls face. Egress below is through a centerline sliding door that leads to a port side gourmet-style galley that features handcrafted cabinetry. Spacious countertops are offered in several colors of Corian or optional choices of granite.
The stove, microwave/convection oven, refrigerator/freezer and sink are conveniently arranged all within easy reach. The opposing starboard side main salon keeps everyone engaged, with a forward bulkhead mounted flat panel TV and the C-shaped wrap-around sofa that converts to a full-sized berth.
The well-appointed master stateroom offers lots of storage and has a queen-size walk-around berth with a separate head on the port side and shower to starboard. The mid-cabin guest stateroom provides twin berths or a single queen with bolsters in place. The en suite head and vanity are adjacent to the full standup dressing area.
The hull and Volvo Penta IPS drive system match up perfectly to deliver both high performance and economical fuel efficiencies. “The OceanTrac™ hull design has an 18° deadrise and a sharp bow entry which not only helps performance but allows for a smooth comfortable ride,” explained Pat Wiesner, Vice President of Engineering. “Couple that with the remarkable turning power of the Volvo Penta IPS and the Regal 42 Sport Coupe will run circles around a traditional sport yacht.”
