Sports Activity Vessel w/Twin OB Power

Regal 33 SAV
Regal 33 SAV

The Regal 33 SAV has an unusually dry helm area for a bowrider thanks to the hardtop with full-height windshield and side panels. The layout includes abundant seating forward of the starboard-side helm as well as aft, but she also fits accommodations for four belowdecks. Note the hullside door aft on the port side, allowing easy access from a dock. She's equipped for offshore angling but also for dayboating and, with the optional grill, for cookouts afloat. More...

With a draft of 16'' (.41 m) with the drive down and no exposed prop, the Yamaha 190 FSH welcomes a bit of most anything her owner has in mind. Powered with a single 180-hp Yamaha jet system, her top speed was 41.0 mph in our tests. She's equipped for fishing, with an aerated livewell, rod racks and holders, casting decks forward and aft, and trolling-motor wiring at the bow – but many folks love her for just blasting around.
