The Regal 28 Express is one of the largest legally trailerable cruisers produced in recent years. That’s good news for those who want the flexibility a trailerable boat affords, especially considering rising slip fees, etc. The downside of such a big trailerable cruiser, however, is a narrow—almost claustrophobic—interior where everything seems small (in spite of the 28’s triangular hullside windows). A modest galley is to starboard with a microwave, sink and Corian countertop, and a small head compartment with near standing headroom is opposite. Forward is a convertible dinette/V-berth, and a queen berth is aft in the midcabin area. In the cockpit, the aft sun pad lays flat for sunning or converts to a chaise. Additional features include high-gloss cherry interior cabinetry, removable cockpit cooler, transom shower, stainless drink holders, double helm seat, trim tabs, and an extended swim platform. The forward opening engine compartment hatch is a plus. A bow thruster, generator and retractable sport arch are optional. No lightweight, a single 300hp Volvo 5.7 gas I/O will cruise at 18–20 knots (about 35 knots top).
