Regal builds a real nice boat. Great for families. One guy I knew had one. Looked real nice, good glass work, good equipment.
Their factory is close by. Everything I see leaving is well built. Some times on my Friday off I go to downtown Kissimmee and watch them water test a new cruiser. It's kind of interesting watching them launch and retrieve a 36-40 foot cruiser from a trailer.
Tell your friend he can't go wrong.
