2006 3880 Gel Coat Color

If you could ask Regal a question directly then what would it be? (While Regal does read our site from time to time please do not expect them to answer your question here!)

I’m not sure what the exact colors are but if you are looking for the colors to do gelcoat work keep in mind that the gelcoat from a 2006 boat will not be the same color as it was when brand new so if you are doing any repairs you will likely need to get some custom matched.

Yes most likey Tahiti Beach. Quick email to Regal with hull number will get you the final answer...

However as CBsmith pointed out you will need to color match it unless its been left in an enclosed shed all its life after 12 years I assume there will be some level of fading of the gel coat. A good fiberglass guy can match them pretty easy. ;)
Thanks, Chris

I know they everyone always says that you need to account for fading over time, but my local fiberglass guy, who does superb work, simply goes to the local Regal dealer to obtain the correct color gel coat for repairs.

I specifically asked him about how he matches his work so well.

He said sometimes a color fades in time and sun, but it's usually very minor. He says he gets the best results by starting with the factory color, rather than trying to custom mix something to try and match any possible fading that may have occurred. He said he rarely has to try to adjust the color, but has done it a very few times in extreme cases.

I am hard pressed to notice his repairs on my 2005 boat. Most of my repairs have been small spots such as scratches.

I got in a fight with a pier and lost. I called Regal and got the color match and ordered from Spectrum on my 2001 Regal 2660 Commodore. I had to wet sand a very large area, but you can not see any color difference.
