Regal 38 XORegal Boats launched its all new outboard-powered 38 XO Sport Yacht on February 14th at the Miami International Boat Show, the third in the company’s revolutionary XO Series. 

According to CEO Duane Kuck, the 38 XO is considered a true game-changer, the first to command a new segment in the marketplace. The 38 XO follows in the highly successful wake of Regal’s 38 Grande Coupe launched last fall, but features an entirely new running surface design and outboard platform powered by triple Yamaha 300s.

“Our new 38 XO outboard-powered sport yacht is truly one of a kind, delivering unprecedented performance with luxury cruising comfort,” said Kuck. “Owners will cruise with little to no bow rise from 20 to 40 mph while enjoying top speeds of almost 50 mph. In addition, the 38 XO sports a premium-packed interior featuring a full cabin and cockpit designed to maximize family entertainment.”

Some key design features and innovations include a spacious salon and convertible entertainment area with 360-degree panoramic views afforded by single-piece windows, including a clever push-button portside venting window and enclosure doors that open and expands into the seamless, single-level cockpit sole with L-shaped seating. Other notable cockpit features include fully customizable displays with integrated systems and navigation controls; a vinyl-wrapped dash; and a retractable, full-beam hardtop.

There is room for relaxation embracing all sides of the outboards, thanks to the low-to-the-water design of the wraparound swim platform. Another plus sure to appeal is the spacious, six-position foredeck sun lounger.


The 38 XO accommodations abound.

The split galley offers indoor and outdoor storage with sink, optional smokeless grill, two-burner stove, microwave, refrigerator and freezer.


Two-berth design includes a best-in-class forward stateroom with California queen bed featuring built-in storage, plus an extra spacious aft stateroom featuring optional twin bed or king (slider) configuration including hand-crafted settee storage and dresser. Full-size head features handcrafted cabinetry, solid surface countertops and separate full-size shower.    

“Families seeking an outboard-powered sport yacht that truly combines the best possible performance with plenty of luxury, comfort and amenities will find it all in the new Regal 38 XO,” said Kuck.

Valvetech Bridgewater MarinaFor many years now, we have used gasoline in our cars and trucks that contains some amount of ethanol, a form of alcohol, and just as a few drops of water combine almost instantly in your Scotch, moisture from the atmosphere can combine with the ethanol in the gasoline that is in your boat’s fuel tank.

Your motor vehicle has a sealed fuel system to control evaporative losses that are a source of air pollution. Fuel is moved into the engine under pressure and any drips that might escape, drop onto the pavement. The engine is open to the pavement below. In an inboard boat, the hull is below the engine and any drips will collect in the bilge with potentially explosive consequences.

Grand Banks 60 SkyloungeThe Canadian market has always been a tough nut for yacht designers to figure out. Summer days get really hot; other days are downright cold. There is always the chance things could change in the blink of an eye and let’s be honest, who among us hasn’t stepped off the boat wearing shorts, flip flops and a warm jacket? Canadian yachting has always been a world of contradictions, which is why designing cruising yachts for this market has never been easy. It’s not like Florida or the Med, where weather is dependable throughout the year.

This change will have no impact on existing ILCA-authorized boats and equipment, which will be able to race alongside ILCA Dinghies in all class sanctioned events.


“It’s a big change for a racing class that hasn’t seen anything like this in our almost 50- year history,” said Class President Tracy Usher.

The DocksBy Katherine Stone

Docks are well-lit and wide to accommodate dock carts.

Steeped in tradition that goes back to one of the oldest towns in Canada west of Quebec City, is Penetanguishene. This bilingual community of 9,000 is located in the middle of Huronia on the southeasterly tip of Georgian Bay in Simcoe Country, Ontario. The name is believed to have been derived from Algonquin (also believed to have come from the Wendat, Abenaki and Ojibwe tribes) meaning “place of the white rolling sands”.
