The aft cabin can accommodate a full double sized bed and the forward cabin with the table infill in place provides a sleeping area for 2-3 people. Additionally 2 persons may enjoy sleeping in the cockpit area with the hood in place.

With the table in place, the saloon can comfortably seat 5. There is ample storage space below the seats in the forward cabin and the fresh water pump is easily accessible in the starboard locker.

The fabric of all forward cabin cushions was renewed 3 years ago and consequently there are no tears or holes in the material, all of which is in very good condition.

Both the forward and rear cabins have roof hatches in good working order.

The port side rosewood galley houses the sink and double plate dual fuel electric/spirit cooker with storage space above and a 12v fridge built into the lower section.

This starboard side cubicle houses the sea-toilet and wash basin with shower attachment and mirror and storage. This area is clean and well finished with the original rosewood door and surrounds.

Broker's Comments

This is a fine example of a well built and popular sports cruiser. The boat has been sparingly used over the last seven years, with the current owner working in the Middle East and only launching the boat on the Thames for the months of July and August; the owner is retiring due to ill health. She's been very well looked after and the original Regal XL quality of finish and styling can be seen both inside and out.

A rigid wheelhouse has been added, leaving the rear section of the cockpit open; the big cockpit is great for cruising The canvas cockpit enclosure is fairly new and still looks bright, clean and fresh. Down below, there's a galley, large convertible dinette/V-berth, double mid-berth and private heads compartment with wash basin and shower.

She's roomy, well presented, nicely equipped and ready to go for the summer!
