As I mentioned in a previous post, this is my first Regal, bought used this year ( 2003 2860 Twin engine Commodore) A considerable upgrade from our previous 1986 Peterborough 26' Cabin Cruiser which I've likened to having traded in an old reliable Chevy pick-up for a more temperamental Ferrari (though I guess I could also liken it to trading out an old workhorse for a young thoroughbred). She's a beauty, but a little high maintenance.

In other words, the Commodore is a gorgeous but somewhat intimidating boat and I'd be very grateful to hear from other first or experienced Regal owners as to whether you had any of these similar experiences at all? For example, the windlass cuts out under what seems like only slight strain. Always resetting the circuit breaker. The speedometer only registers speed intermittently. The marine shop says this is common. Do you get used to not knowing your speed? Is it easy to repair?
What's your experience with getting the boat on plane? Again, the guys at the marina say the Regals are "bow heavy" and revving to 3400 rpms should be expected. Doesn't seem to jive with what I read in the owners manual.

Captan Rommer, I think you are Wake -n- Waves. If so, I see you also owned a 2860 Commodore at one point. How do you stay on plane without going quite so fast? (however "fast", fast might be, since our speedometer doesn't work). Your thoughts would be really appreciated when you have time.

One, a new 2015 28 Express and it's been a nightmare. Just past the 1 year mark and in for major repairs, half the time that I have owned it.
It's been a terrible stress on the family.

Ugh.,,sorry to hear that. What sorts of things have been the problem? Issues with the motor? Drives? Boat itself?

Hello All. Richard & Cathy here. We bought a 1995 Avanti (Commodore?) 256 twin Volvo 3.0 GS last May. This is our second boat, our first was a 10 foot Achilles with an 8 hp Evinrude. Other than that my parents owned a 1958 26 foot Chris Craft when I was a teenager. All mahogany and was a labour of love. We have both lived here on the west coast of BC all our lives. We are blessed to live in one of the most beautiful areas to boat, the Gulf Islands. I have waited all my life to be able to kind of afford to buy a boat. We could not be more happy than with our Regal. Our weather can change in a minute so it is important to have a vessel that can handle a good 2 or 3 foot chop. The Regal can do that quite well. The twin screws makes it very maneuverable. We are hoping to get one a little bigger in the future, Cathy's idea and she golfs and fishes too. Hands off she's all mine fellas. Anyway just wanted to post something as I never have posted anything anywhere before. Also to thank the folks that manage the site and those who share their invaluable knowledge and experiences with these exceptional crafts. Safe travels.

OK - It's been a while, but I'm back in the Regal fold. After Rommer, I'm actually member 001 on this site. Have owned a 2760, 3260, 3560 and 4260 before outgrowing the Regal line. Have owned a Sea Ray 560DB for the past 8 years and have decided to progress on to a cottage - with a deep water dock. I am happy to be back into the Regal fold with a 2014 32 Express.

Actually I have one, the one I got right to from my Dad. He used cruise for a living. I still remember, some fun time with family in the cruise. I am happy to have it with me now. I will keep it alive no matter what, as it has kept us alive all this long.

We are on our second Regal, our first was a 09' 4460 and was purchased new. We sold that in 2014 and just recently purchase a 2012 5260 from Ft. Lauderdale and brought it up the coast to her new home on the Chesapeake.
