With each boat we build, our commitment goes deeper so that when your Regulator slices through an offshore chop, she does it with confidence. That confidence comes from the strength of our hull — specifically our signature stringer system, which works as one solid piece to eliminate much of the stress at the deck, liner, and hull joints.
Made from composite core, not wood, Regulator’s stringer stands out from the rest. It is bonded to the hull with a high-strength poly-blend adhesive system, and then, bi-axial fiberglass is applied to the edges. To add strength and reduce noise, foam is injected into the stringer so that the stringer and hull become one solid unit. The most important detail? This entire process occurs when the stringer and hull are inside the mold to deliver the extra strength, stability, and bonding that ensures maximum performance.
The power of one solid hull is ultimately felt offshore. When nothing is moving beneath your feet, you know you are on a boat built to handle the high seas. Dive deep beneath the surface with our hull animation video.
So how do you prepare for the unpredictable nature of the offshore environment?
OWEN: The core components of every Regulator are the hull, the stringer, the liner, and the deck cap. On our offshore center consoles, each of these parts is built as one solid piece then put in place to create the strength and rigidity you need to handle any offshore condition. These components are not just put in place — they are polybonded in place, fiberglassed in place, and foamfilled in place so that once everything is in, it will never come out. This means that there is no noise, no creaking, no soft spots. No leaking, no cracks, no caulk…and no wood!
LOU: Regulator understands quality. They never compromise or cut corners, and their experts build each boat to the exact standards originally intended. Above deck, they know what their customers want because they listen — and below deck, their only job is to keep doing what earned them a reputation as one of the best center consoles on the market today.
How does the stringer influence the ride?
OWEN: Everything is about the stringer. It’s the skeleton of the boat — and on Regulator's offshore models, it’s built as one piece rather than individual pieces. One solid piece of fiberglass-molded stringer means that the boat lies down deep and low in the water, ready to rise to any occasion and slice through any condition.
Regardless of the speed or horsepower of a boat, there are days when conditions change and you are going to have to head home at 20 knots, or maybe even 16 knots. Unlike other bottom designs, Regulator utilizes a hull form that will get you home safely and efficiently at any speed.
Four key components create the core of our signature ride: the hull, the stringer, the liner, and the deck cap. Each part is constructed as one solid piece, without any mechanical or chemical fasteners, then bonded together to give you the fit and finish that only Regulator can deliver. When we add the integrated T-Top and Console, all the pieces work together to achieve optimal balance in every ride.
It all starts with the stringer, which is made from one solid piece of fiberglass, handcrafted without an ounce of wood, then bonded to the hull. To add rigidity and reduce noise, foam is injected into the stringer. The stringer and hull become one solid unit, so once the stringer is in, it’s in for good.
The strength of the stringer and other core parts eliminate much of the stress at the deck, liner, and hull joints to deliver a difference you ultimately feel offshore.
