The Regulator 23

Whether the plan is for an offshore run or a casual day closer to shore with family and friends, the Regulator 23 offers unbelievable stability and comfort with the fit, finish and ride that Regulator is known for. Boasting an overall length of 27’6″ with Armstrong bracket and engine (8’6″ beam), the Regulator 23 fishes and rides like a much larger boat with its deep-V entry and 24 degrees of deadrise at the transom. Regulator’s soft ride is a direct result of how the hull was designed using Regulator’s signature grillage system and a rugged molded fiberglass stringer system that adds an enormous amount of strength to the hull.

The Regulator 23 is built in Edenton, North Carolina, powered by a single Yamaha 300-hp F300 outboard engine, runs to a top speed of 46.9 mph, and has a cruising speed of 29.8 mph. Big-game fishing benefits include a 23-gallon livewell, 120-quart transom fishbox and 350-quart in-deck fishbox, along with a convenient rigging station and plenty of storage. Luxuries include abundant forward seating, a built-in 55-quart insulated cooler in the console seat and an optional head with holding tank.; (252) 482-3837
