Regulator Marine has added a second model to its XO center-console crossover lineup with the 24XO, a smaller sister to the 26XO, introduced last year. This new 24-foot-4-inch hybrid bay boat comes standard with dozens of features, including a fiberglass hardtop, 25-gallon aft starboard livewell, two bow fish boxes with locking rod storage, a leaning post with rocket launcher and tackle storage, a 12-inch Garmin display, and a saltwater washdown.

“Our design and engineering team has really outdone themselves, delivering the expanded deck space, fishing features, family amenities and overall quality Regulator is known for,” says Regulator president and co-founder Joan Maxwell.
Options for the 24XO include a SeaStar Solutions hydraulic jackplate, a Minn Kota Riptide Ulterra trolling motor (24V) with i-Pilot, a 10-foot Power-Pole Blade, and factory-installed dual Garmin displays.
In Yamaha testing with an F300 (max power), the 24XO hit a top speed of 50 mph at 5,900 rpm, achieving 1.90 mpg. At a 26.3 mph cruise, fuel consumption improved to 2.97 mpg. The boat carries 86 gallons of fuel.
