Regulator’s 23 Delivers Powerful Performance and Versatility
Edenton, N.C. — Very few 23-foot boats can brave blue water one day, then turn around and fish inshore the next with just as much comfort and ease. But for the Regulator 23, it’s all in a day’s work. That’s the uncompromising spirit Regulator builds into every one of its authentic Carolina sportfishing boats.
“Over the years, the 23 has really ‘wowed’ the center console market with its functionality and powerful performance,” said Regulator co-founder and President Joan Maxwell. “Its big-boat feel and attributes make it a truly versatile fishing machine.”
The 23 comes in FS model with forward seating. The company redesigned the boat in 2008 to incorporate the latest in construction techniques, including a one-piece, fiberglass liner with molded scupper tubes, and a deck with built-in hand rails. At the working end of the boat, a splashwell door in the transom is flanked by a 48-quart bait box on each side, and a big hatch offers bilge access adjacent to a 25-gallon, in-sole livewell. All hatches are finished on both sides via a process called RTM (resin transferable molds) and are fitted with locking stainless steel handles and gas shocks. In the bow, a large anchor locker is standard.
“The changes we decided to implement made the 23 an even stronger and more complete sportfisher,” said Maxwell. “Retooling a model is no small task, but we feel the enhancements were worth it.”
The Regulator 23’s comes standard with a SuperSport leaning post which incorporates tackle storage. The SuperSport leaning post's optional backrest accommodates up to 4 rods and has a flip-up seat with tackle storage, space underneath for a 94-quart cooler, and built-in footrest.
What hasn’t changed is Regulator’s trademark soft and dry ride that comes from a deep entry forward, 24-degree deadrise at the transom and wide reverses chines. This great-looking sportfishing hull features an overall length of 23’4”, a beam of 8’4” and is strengthened by Regulator’s proprietary Fiberglass Grillage System for structural stability.
Popular upgrades include the stylish canvas T-top with anodized aluminum frame, and 360 degree coaming pads.
Regulator’s line of 23- to 34-foot offshore sportfishing boats are highly recognized for quality craftsmanship and rugged durability. The company is a repeat recipient of the National Marine Manufacturer Association’s Marine Industry CSI Award for customer satisfaction in the Fiberglass Outboard Boats category.
