The independent spirit of Regulator Marine continues, obvious in the latest model to join the fleet this fall –  the all-new 29.

Based on another deep-V hull from award-winning designer Lou Codega, this state-of-the-art fishing machine fills a natural gap between the builder’s celebrated 26 and its flagship 32 and will meet the needs of those looking for exceptional performance in the 30-foot range. Combining authentic Carolina styling, unsurpassed finish work and no-nonsense functionality, the 29 promises to once again raise the bar for other center-console manufacturers. The new 29 will be available in your choice of the classic, open-fish design or the popular forward-seating version.

Since its beginnings, Regulator has held quality and performance in the forefront of its boatbuilding strategy. The 29 reinforces these principals and represents the best of the best in design, materials and finish. Craftsmanship is unparalleled in this new vessel, with all hatches finished top and bottom via a resin-transfer mold process. For the owner, this means easy upkeep and added value. Continue looking and you’ll find that Regulator has nothing to hide: Wiring comes complete with loomed harnesses and Deutsch connectors for a neater look and trouble-free maintenance. The T-top, constructed of fiberglass, is completely finished – and probably the finest production-built T-top on the market today.


The interior of the console is fully lined fiberglass and provides an almost unbelievable 6 feet 3 inches of headroom. Back at the helm station, visibility is no problem while running this boat, and the fiberglass console panel has enough room for any electronics package on the market today. Need storage? Regulator has loaded the 29 to the gills. Whether you decide on the classic open model or the forward-seating edition, you’ll find a massive storage locker up front that is also lockable for rods. Storage continues on both sides of this box with insulated coolers. All boxes are plumbed overboard directly or via macerator pumps – not into the bilge. Walk aft and you’ll find additional storage on either side of the console. A bit farther on, you’ll see the 30-gallon livewell in the transom flanked by an 84-quart insulated bait/fish box.

The all-new 29 clearly benefits from Regulator’s years of design integrity; founded on proven engineering strategies, it’s certain to exceed the demands of even the most die-hard angler. The undaunted spirit of Regulator rides again in the new 29. See it at your local boat show or at a dealer near you.
