I currently have a 1996 27' Regal 8.3 SC Ventura. It's a cuddy cabbin not a cruiser. As far as the boat goes I have owned it for 2 years and never had any type of problem with it. Other than regular maintenance the only thing I had to do is replace the gear cable because it seemed a little worn. I'm going to trade it in on a 33' Outlaw. If I wasn't making the switch to a perfomance boat I would keep it for a few more years.
