Regal Boats launched its all-new outboard-powered 38 XO Sport Yacht at the Miami International Boat Show (February 14-18), making it the third in the company’s 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 maximise 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 expand into the seamless, single-level cockpit sole with L-shaped seating. Other notable cockpit features include fully customisable displays with integrated systems and navigation controls; a vinyl-wrapped dash; and a retractable, full-beam hardtop.

There is room for relaxation on 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 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.
