Regal Marine for 2012 has a lock on stylish under 20 LOA bow riders with their 1900 model that measures 19’ 10”. Take a look at the sculpted fiberglass hull sides. The windshield choices. The engine choices. The standard equipment, much of which is designed in from the get-go.

Here is a boat with a very deep vee that super softens the chop and stays in control in tight turns. It is a performance boat. The only negative to a deep vee in this size boat is bow rise on initial take-off but the helm seat design and location fixes that.

She goes 50 MPH plus with the middle engine choice, a 220 Horsepower Mercruiser MPI engine and out drive package. You can go even faster with the 270 Horsepower Volvo option.

So it is excellent speed with a reasonable engine package, peppy turning ability, high style hull and cockpit features, and a lot of storage in a nice tight high value package with the 2012 Regal Bow Rider.

One thing that seabuddy must point out is the size of the standard swim platform and access from out of the water to inside the cockpit design feature that this Regal offers. Even at a boat show, drop the swim ladder and try this out for yourself, it is that good.

Finally, this boat has a generous 8’ 3” beam for its length that is wider than most. That gives extra room to move around inside the cockpit. Once in the cockpit, check out the removable ice chest under the rear seat. Regal spent more time and attention in designing this boat than other boat builders do and this feature shows one of the resulting benefits of that extra thinking to a boater and his family.
