Regal installed a combination livewell/wine chiller on the new 38 SAV. That piece of equipment alone tells the story of what the 50-year-old builder is seeking to accomplish with this boat: A perfect mix of cruising attributes in a very fishable, open design.
When Regal introduced its 33 SAV (Sports Activity Vessel) a couple years ago, it attempted to combine the wants and needs of cruising families looking for a comfortable overnighter that they could wet a line on from now and then. The 33 has plenty of seating and a good-sized cuddy, and yes, you can fish from it, but it isn’t all that fishy. The new 38 SAV expands on the concept, offering more standard features that adhere to advanced anglers while not forgetting about the family that may want to spend a weekend on board.
Center consoles in the 35- to 40-foot range typically offer plenty of outboard power to race out to the rip, a ridiculous number of rod holders, massive fish coffins and copious room up front to battle fish, but little in the way of accommodations. Most of these platforms have a small head inside the console and a berth that quickly becomes overcrowded with fishing tackle. The 38 SAV is a complete departure.
A mixture of fishing, family, and fun, the 38 SAV features an extremely large deck, one that feels that you are on a boat much larger than a 38-footer which is great for fighting that big catch, or entertaining family and friends. The large helm area features four chairs that swing around so that you can watch the rods, and also fold down flat for additional counter space when using the grill or any other time that you need extra space for entertainment.
Underneath the deck features Regal’s one-of-a-kind beautiful design and engineering. Large windows let in natural light, queen-sized berth up front, and a full head with walk-in shower is uncommon for an open boat of this size.
The 38 SAV runs strong with triple 300-hp Yamaha outboards and the company’s patented FasTrac hull design. She’ll hit a top end of 45-plus knots.
