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.

The Marina at Blind ChannelOne of my favourite places

By Marianne Scott

Sailing north of Desolation Sound, the Discovery Islands and the Broughton Archipelago offer cruisers a bevy islands with ample anchorages. Tides cause swift currents to run through the islands’ waterways. Few marinas are found in this large, sparsely populated region but one that provides all the services boaters need and especially enjoy is Blind Channel, a marina and resort operated by the Richter family located on Mayne Passage on the east side of West Thurlow Island (50 24. 82N, 125 30. 00).

Swift Trawler 47By Andy Adams

You might look at the pictures of the new Beneteau Swift Trawler 47 and think that this is not a “performance boat”, but I think it certainly is, and here is why; it can top out at 30 mph to get you from A to B quickly or to beat the weather in, so it’s pretty fast, but it can also loaf along doing 1,250 rpm making 9.3 mph and at that pace, it travels 2.4 miles on a gallon of fuel. That’s great performance in my books!

With a light displacement of almost 28,000 lbs, this is a big boat. In fact, it looks and feels more like a small ship than a big boat.

Beneteau Oceanis 46.1By Andy Adams and John Armstrong

Beneteau Oceanis 46.1When Beneteau introduced their new Oceanis 46.1, they were inspired by the fact that their previous Oceanis 45 was one of Beneteau’s best sellers and the new 46.1 had to be a clearly superior boat. The Oceanis range is about space and comfort for cruising while still delivering strong performance.

The yachting world has now recognized the Oceanis 46.1 as being just such a worthy successor. On January 19th, 2019, the Oceanis 46.1 won the highly regarded title of European Yacht of the Year in the “Family Cruiser” category.
