In 1988, Regulator Marine set out to reinvent the deep-V center-console experience, and engineered what today it proudly calls the Legendary Ride.

Tested against the challenging conditions of their native North Carolina Outer Banks, the tough sport-fishers—23 to 41 feet long and each built by hand—are known for superb fit-and-finish and a dry, comfortable ride. 

The company is consistently awarded with industry  leading customer-satisfaction scores, and customer warranty claims on less than 1 percent of sales.

Regulator 34

The Regulator 34 boasts a space-maximizing design rivaling in roominess its 39-foot competitors. The boat offers a massive center forward storage box, two forward insulated fish/dry storage boxes, a bulk cockpit storage box or optional fish box, a transom fish box and, adjoining it, a 42-gallon transom livewell.  

But it’s fishing space that really counts, and in true CC fashion, the 34’s layout makes it easy to reach the huge forward deck and the 3X Deluxe Tackle Center with rigging station.

Options include outrigger bases and poles, transom rod holders, electric-reel hookups, and an upgraded 3X Deluxe Mezzanine Tackle Center for additional seating, storage, and rod launchers.

An integrated wraparound windshield is mounted within the standard fiberglass T-top. All is monitored by a factory-installed Garmin Offshore electronics package. Options include helm air conditioning, stereo upgrade, and forward and rear sunshades. Below deck, a berth sleeps two, with rod storage and other amenities nearby. 

Choose between triple Yamaha 300s and twin Yamaha 425s, tended by Yamaha’s Helm Master EX. Add the Seakeeper 2, and you’re ready for anything.
