Here in the Midwest, the boating season is pretty well over. My 2015 Regal 2800 has been winterized, and is ready for me to apply a good coat of wax to it, put the mooring cover on it, and "put it to bed" for the winter.This was my second season running my 2800, but I was only able to put 35 hours on it due to some family health issues that kept me away from the lake.

My wife and I truly love our 2800, more so as times passes. It is so. comfortable and has such a great ride. And, it's styling turns heads. We couldn't be happier with our boat, with Regal, and with Kelly's Port, our dealer at Lake of the Ozarks.

Are all of you other 2800 owners (or even 2700 owners) equally satisfied?

Have a great winter, fellow Regal boaters!

hi everyone I just registered lots of good info here I am about to purchase a 2016 new regal 2800 but due to weather I wont be able to test drive it. I boat in the dc area Potomac river the water can get rough time to time just want to get an idea of how the ride on this 2800 is. just sold a 25' bayliner element xr7 with m haul that beat the hell out of me and family of course im not comparing the two but since im spending a lot of money on this boat I want to make sure if im getting into a comfortable boat. than you

I have no experience with the 2800 however I have taken my 2400 out of Occoquan River into the Potomac River and had a blast.

Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri gets very rough, too. But, I have found the 2800 to be very comfortable in such conditions. I attribute the 21 degree (relatively deep V hull), along with a dry weight of about 6,550 lbs to be the main reasons for the 2800's ride. I guarantee you'll feel like you're cruising on air in the 2800 compared to your Bayliner.

Enjoy!

About three months into the third boating season for our 2015 2800, my wife and I love our boat as much as we did the day we took delivery of it. It now has about 110 hours on it, and it's running and holding up great in the rough waters of Lake of the Ozarks. I'm still burning about 10 gallons of fuel per hour, and virtually no oil. I have no major complaints or concerns.

I trust all other 2800 owners are experiencing the same level of satisfaction?

Have a great 4th of July, my fellow Regal owners.

The cover is great, Kevin. It's worth every penny I paid for it. Thanks again for the reference.
