Regulator Marine unveils model upgrades, factory expansion plans

Regulator Marine hosted its largest annual “Regulator Marine University” (RMU) to date Nov. 13 to Nov. 15 in Edenton, N.C.

In addition to providing three days of interactive training sessions, seminars with Yamaha and Garmin, and keynote speeches from renowned sales experts, the company announced mid-model year upgrades and revealed plans for a phase two factory expansion, which, combined with the new Lean Manufacturing initiative, will ensure that the manufacturer keeps pace with rising demand.

“RMU is one of my favorite events of the year,” said Regulator President Joan Maxwell. “Gathering our dealers and salespeople for learning, recognition, and collaborative feedback is critical to our success. This year, it took on even greater meaning as we introduced the next phase of what we are doing to meet demand, and previewed the first Regulator with sun shade comfort and tow bar option."

The mid-model year option upgrades also include an all-weather canvas forward sun shade, Garmin offshore package and a Laguna Blue, a new gelcoat color.

The annual RMU Awards night, held Nov. 15, closed out the three-day event. The following awards were given:

  • Oyster Harbors Marine (Osterville, Mass.) accepted the “Dealership of the Year” Award
  • Five-time winner Michael Hayes of Suffolk Marine Center (Babylon, N.Y.) accepted the “Salesman of the Year” Award
  • Paul Ochs of Catawba Moorings (Port Clinton, Ohio) accepted the “Northeast Salesman of the Year” Award
  • Kevin Hunter of Bluewater Yacht Sales (Mobile, Ala.) accepted the “Southeast Salesman of the Year” Award
  • Scott James of Bluewater Yacht Sales (Hampton, Va.) accepted the “Mid-Atlantic Salesman of the Year” Award
