Regal Marine Industries unveiled two new boats last week in Miami, the 2100 Surf featuring Volvo’s new Forward Drive and Regal’s Surf Package, as well as the all-new 22 FasDeck, the newest member of the FasDeck series now spanning 22 to 27 feet.
The 2100 Surf combines all the innovative features of this popular model, along with Volvo’s new propulsion system and Surf Package with the hot RX graphics and interior trim to give boaters a watersports platform that not only looks great, but does it ALL, and does it well. In addition to Volvo’s Forward Drive, the Surf Edition includes Surf Tabs and 1,000 pounds of ballast contained in three ballast tanks, all easily controlled via Regal’s exclusive RegalVue touch screen control panel.
The RegalVue allows the operator to easily manage every aspect of the boat’s operations, including the ballast, the trim tabs and speed control with an intuitive and easy to operate interface. The system even directs the rider to active surf side by blinking Regal’s exclusive transom brake light on the corresponding side of the boat once a wake setup is selected.
Volvo’s Forward Drive is perfectly suited for this serious watersports platform and offers numerous advantages over a traditional inboard including a duoprop which eliminates torque steer and provides excellent tracking and improved handling, as well as underwater exhaust for a cleaner, quieter ride.
With the addition of the Volvo Forward Drive to the 2100, the new Regal 2100 Surf might be the most versatile and complete watersports platform in the marketplace today. Innovation is in Regal’s DNA, starting with the FasTrac hull which delivers 26% more speed and 30% more fuel efficiency. The 2100 also delivers a comfortable ride and amazing wide full throttle performance comparable to a traditional drive unit. Handling is enhanced with the Volvo Forward drive, however, since the props are set 26 inches forward when compared to a rear facing lower unit.
Add Regal’s PowerTower and you not only have an additional tow point, but an easily-deployed bimini top along with a location for optional boards racks and Fusion speakers. All of this is easily lowered with the push of a button. Seating in the Regal 2100 provides ultimate flexibility for cruising or for enjoying watersports. The aft rumble seats can be used for observing the activity on the water, or a just a beautiful sunset. Add the spacious bow accommodations and you end up with best in class seating for a boat this size.
The 2100 Surf will be available for retail deliveries early this Summer.
The All New Regal 22 FasDeck
The 22 FasDeck has the soul of a race craft in a fleet of capacious deck boats. The 22 FasDeck exemplifies this series of deck boats from Regal with a combination of performance, panache, luxury amenities, and functionality. Coming from the bloodlines of previous Regal FasTrac sportboat designs, but with the added functionality of today’s deckboats, the 22 FasDeck dances on top of chop, hugs tight to the water in turns, and tows with ease.
Like the other FasDeck models, the 22FasDeck has the Regal patented FasTrac Hull design which gives you more control on the water with up to 26% faster speeds and up to 30% better fuel efficiency. The performance with the Volvo V6 225HP with DuoProp has a top speed of 47 mph at WOT and a cruise speed of 32 mph at 3400 rpm.
Again, Regal provides best in-class cockpit seating capacity on the 22 FasDeck with more room for family and friends. The multi-positioned social seat on the port side gives you the functionality of a bucket seat, yet converts to an rear-facing arena seat to maximize cockpit seating. The transom seating provides flexibility for those in the water and with a flip of a seat, and doubles as a transom walk-thru. Discover the wide bow seating with an optional bow filler cushion which converts the bow into a lounging and sunning area.
The 22 FasDeck features amazing storage compartments under the port and starboards seats, bow seats along with a cavernous storage area for all your wakesports equipment on centerline in the cockpit sole. The starboard cockpit seat also features a dedicated location for the standard 36-quart Igloo cooler. The 22 FasDeck even features a spacious enclosed head area with optional portable head or a pump out porta potti.
The 22 FasDeck is offered as an ESX series in three striking colors distinguished by edgy graphics and eye catching graphics packages. Notable standard equipment includes Fusion 700i marine stereo and speakers, bimini top, bow boarding ladder with anchor and rode storage. Notable optional equipment includes the Regal PowerTower, Stereo High Performance Package, RegalVue Display, bow & cockpit cover, bow walk-thru doors, cockpit seagrass mat, underwater lights, docking lights, and portable head.
The 22 FasDeck will be offered as a 2016 model and available in Summer 2015.
