Mike:
Both decent express cruisers. I have surveyed both brands many times. Regal gets a little more respect in the resale market. If you're buying used get a survey!

Thumbs up

check out the fountain express cruiser. Mine is available if your interested, it has twin custom 640 hp, run roughly 80 mph. Leaves wonders at the poker runs how such a big boat moves the way it does

I had express cruisers for 10 years before buying a performance boat. Never had either brand. Consider the speed these boats travel, not that you'll be un-happy at the speed it moves, but the time it takes to get from point A to point B. That was my biggest hang-up. A trip we now make in 1.75 hour used to take 4 hours!!!! Considering your choices also have BBC's your fuel burn will more than DOUBLE.
Now, once you get there.....you'll enjoy yourself more being able to walk around in the boat. Just consider the trade-offs and decide.....


BTW: I'm ready to sell the 382 and get into a 370SS for these reasons.

Look into a Formula 400SS.... The largest Rinker dealer is at the entrance to my Neighborhood, they are a dime a dozen up here on the Bay... Friend of mine has a Regal....They are both good boats but I wouldnt use the words Express describing them....


I have a very nice turn key 400SS for sale... I will be putting an ad in the OSO Classifieds later tonight if I have time... If interested PM me your e-mail and I will forward pictures...

Thanks Patrick
