Not the same as a Stepp Velocity at all, back in the late 80's. Regal started building those boats as if Mom and Pop were taking the kids out, NOT the hard offshore boat Steve Stepp was known for.
They took all the manufacturing shortcuts, I.E. raw wood upholstery, poor lamination, sub-standard fittings, and very generic rigging. The only good thing was the hull mold was the same.
You would have to completely rebuild it from top to bottom in order to have any real offshore capability. Remember the difference between price and cost !!! Cheap price, cost alot.
Your better off buying a more current model with all the better equipment at a good discount and save yourself alot.
