I reluctantly sold our 26 Sonic with a 500 HP for a 32 regal with twin 454's and Bravo 3's. I never once looked back. The regal is laid out extremely well and has plenty of power, for a cruiser. I have seen 51 on GPS, and with the B3's, it gets right out of the water. I find we mostly cruise around 30 with it, so going from one end of the lake to the other does take a while.
I campaigned hard this year for a 29 or 31 Formula to add to the fleet, but was shot down for another year. Either way, I think the Regal is going to be in the family for quite a while, it is just so versatile when you have 3 girls and want to spend a full day on the water.
I believe you will love your new cruiser.
