Regal Boats-- Interview... - 05/14/2008
Untitled Page </head> <body> <span style="font-family: Arial">For the last two consecutive years Regal Marine has won the J. D. Power awards for both small runabouts and express cruisers. Regal is the first boat builder to win two awards in the same year, and now they have done it twice. Last year Regal introduced its 5260, the biggest boat it has ever built, and in doing so introduced a new distribution method for largish boats. In a wide-ranging interview Duane Kuck, President of Regal, discusses how Regal wins the Power awards and explain his plans for the future. <br /> </span> <br /> <table bgcolor="#ffffff" border="0" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" style="border-top-style: solid;
