388 I can forward you his number if you need to talk to him.

Those boats are manufactured in Canada about two hours North of the border here in Vermont.

I am not at all familiar with theire products but I know he is.
I think Regals are manufactured in Orlando, FLorida.

I have owned two Regals in the past several years and they were both great boats. One was a cruiser and the other was a 23 foot bowrider. Both were excellent products and I would buy another Regal again in a second. The market is saturated with Sea Rays. Great boats but your boat will not get a second look from passerbys. Have you looked at Tiara? I was impressed. It's a get what you pay for type of deal.

Tiaras are the top notch of the top notch.
A bit square-edged, and a bit traditional on the interior design, but definitely top notch (and the price shows it).

And yeah, their website indicates the plant is in Florida. Also reads like that is their only plant, so I guess they aren't in Canada. This gives them no cold weather excuse on their "too thin" canvas and isinglas packages. I am friends with the local dealer and after he got finished arguing with me over whether it was thin or not, he told me that a couple of the buyers had upgraded to a thicker package with some mfr trade-in credit for it..

Thanks again you guys. I haven't found anyone with any problems with Regal. I personally like the 38' Regal better than Sea Ray. Sea Ray is a great boat, I just like the layout of the Regal a little better. I really like the privacy and extra head for the aft cabin on the Regal.
