The Miami International Boat Show is shaping up for 2022. Regal Boats has announced a large presence at the event, with 13 models on display including the all-new Regal 38 Fly.
According to Regal Marketing Manager Jeff Littlefield, "This will be the official debut of our all-new 38 Fly, a luxury performance flybridge yacht, and will also be one of the first opportunities for our customers to step foot on our new LX36 and 42 FXO - The first and only outboard-powered flybridge yacht."
"This is a great place for our future, current, and past Regal owners to experience the passionate craftsmanship that our more than 800 person team has dedicated to these beautiful boats. We are proud of the hard work and effort of our entire team as we continue our vision of Pursuing the Ultimate Boating Experience," he added.
The Miami International Boat Show is running February 16th-20th at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Regal will have models ranging from 21' to 42' on display including both outboard and sterndrive power options.
As for the 38 Fly, it's an attractive platform that uses available space exceptionally well. In typical Regal fashion, the attention to detail is evident and the design features are smooth and modern. There are full amenities above and below deck, including some helpful features like an aft cockpit refrigerator, as well as a complete galley and an impressive aft stateroom with a king bed that converts to twin beds as needed. A hidden pocket door system in the stateroom is great for organizing luggage, and a 32" tv compliments the comfort of the room well. The flybridge is surprisingly large with a convex outer perimeter to maximize space. A hydraulic swim platform that descends below water level is an excellent feature for socializing and reentering after water activities.

Power options include twin 600 horsepower Twin Volvo D4 Diesel 300 OX engines with EVC Joystick, or 800 horsepower Twin Volvo V8 430 EVC DP engines with Joystick Cat. Other notable features include the Seakeeper 3 Stabilization System which eliminates up to 95% of boat roll.
