MISSION
The Regal 26 OBX is an outboard version of the Regal 26 sterndrive FasDeck. She is designed for people who want a deck boat that has outboard power. Because she has a stepped hull, she should outperform conventional designs with the same power.
With a 12-person max capacity, this boat can be used for entertaining, cruising, and watersports -- and probably all on the same day. She is a good alternative to a pontoon boat.

INSPECTION Stern A view of the stern with the aft Ã¢â‚¬Å“ultraloungeÃ¢â‚¬Â in the Ã¢â‚¬Å“downÃ¢â‚¬Â/sun pad position. Note the backrest can flip up to create two separate settees.
The 26 OBXÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s single outboard sits flanked by the swim platform, which is covered by MarineTred non-skid surface. The platform has a walkway in front of the outboard with space for two guests at the same time, one port and one starboard.
The Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ultralounge.Ã¢â‚¬Â The starboard side of the stern leads to a step-up and access into the shipÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cockpit. The remainder of the transom is taken up by the 26 OBXÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ultralounge, a versatile seating space that can provide versatile relaxation for multiple guests. The port side of this seating is a single seat with a fixed back and a stainless steel cup holder on the gunwale just in reach.
Our test captain easily walks around the stern of the boat from one side to the other thanks to the design which moves the outboard well aft of the flat swim platform. The extended swim platform measures 3Ã¢â‚¬â„¢4Ã¢â‚¬Â (1.02 m) beyond the transom. The connecting walkway is over 1Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ (30.5 cm) wide, making for easy transit. The swim platforms are lower to the water than the re-boarding ladder is under the port platform. It is a three-step ladder and it extends 22Ã¢â‚¬Â (55.9 cm) under water, as required by ABYC standards.
The central part of the seating is made up of a large, flat, upholstered space split by an adjustable backrest. The backrest, when stood up, creates two distinct settees, with the ability to tilt the backrest to accommodate as needed.
The aft bench seat is a good place from which to launch watersports as well as a venue from which to watch the sun set.Under the stern seat is a large compartment that can be used for storage or as an ice chest. It drains into the bilge. The Ã¢â‚¬Å“ultraloungeÃ¢â‚¬Â in chaise position for sunning. The versatile seat masks a number of different positions. Here, we see the back positioned all the way down, resulting in a large sun pad.
The ultralounge extends along the transom, with a connecting seating space wrapping along the remainder of the transom to the portside. The bulkhead has an upholstered backrest above a cut-out with stainless steel grab rails just below it.
Looking aft, we see how the flat sun pad opens the whole boat up to the stern. Cockpit A view of the cockpit, showing the expansive seating. Note the Ã¢â‚¬Å“pullÃ¢â‚¬Â latch under the transom seating, which lifts to reveal the lazarette storage.
Access from the stern to the cockpit comes to starboard along a fiberglass walkway. This walkway has storage accessed via the stainless steel latches flush in the deck.
Forward the access walkway to starboard is a small seating space, extending from just behind the captainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s seat and tapering back to the gunwale at the access point. This seating space lifts to reveal storage.
A view of the starboard side of the cockpit looking forward from the transom. Note the high bolsters on the side which serve as a backrest.Capt. Steve relaxes in the corner of the cockpit, which has maximized seating space. With all of the seats removed, we can see the storage compartments on three sides of the cockpit. The transom bench seat drains into the bilge, so it can be used as an ice chest.The Ã¢â‚¬Å“ultraloungeÃ¢â‚¬Â lifts up at the push of a button thanks to an electrically-actuated device. Once lifted up, one can see the space available. Our test captain was actually able to get into this compartment. Scuppers on the side of the compartment drain into the bilge.
Finally, the backrest can be pushed fore and flat down to be flush with the flat space to make a large sun pad. The sun pad can be lifted on either side to reveal storage, with the entire structure lifting to reveal the massive lazarette storage.
This clever piece of hardware on the stern is called a Ã¢â‚¬Å“comboÃ¢â‚¬Â because it serves as both a cup holder and a rod holder.A closer look at the portside Ã¢â‚¬Å“social seatingÃ¢â‚¬Â space. The backrest swings fore and aft to reconfigure the seating.
A double-wide seat with an adjustable backrest allows one to sit forward in parallel with the captain or tilted toward the cockpit to engage a more social space. It can also, like the ultralounge, be adjusted to lay flat and flush with the seating in order to make one long, extended lounge space.
Capt. Steve demonstrates the ergonomics of the companion seating. The head resides behind the lockable hatch forward.Under the companion seat is more storage. With the companion seat back in a down position, the cushion on the head hatch serves as a backrest, thus becoming a chaise or a spotters seat when towing. There is a well-designed access door to the head which is cut away both at the side and at the top to make it easier to get inside. We see a Porta-Potti here, but an electric flush toilet is optional. A side-mounted table adds utility to the cockpit. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d like to see at least one, maybe two, more so that six people could have lunch in the cockpit. This can be easily accomplished in the aftermarket.
Forward, the adjustable double-wide portside seat is the hatch for the optional head, which has a silent electrical flush.
Helm The helm on the 26 OBX. Note the stainless steel header on the windshield, as well as the Faria gauges on the forward wood panel above the steering wheel.A single, multi-purpose screen has been fitted in the console, which has all controls easily at hand.
Helm Seat. The 26 OBX features a double-wide helm seat with flip-up bolster and premium upholstery. The helm has a simple, streamlined design with a roadster style, wrapped steering wheel, tabs to the starboard side, and chartplotter/gauges above on the faux wood surfaced panel.
The helm features Faria gauges which, besides being very stylish on the wood panel, are fog-resistant and easy to read. The 26 OBX also comes standard with digital depth sounder, 12-volt accessory plug, and a stainless steel binnacle throttle control on the starboard bulkhead, ergonomically placed for the captainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s right hand.
When the power tower is lowered, there is still room at the helm with the captain standing to operate the boat in order to get it under a bridge. Bow Two acrylic doors close the passageway to the bow. The bow seating section features a more spacious footprint typical of deck boats. Here we can see the hardware insert for the side-mounted table.Seating opens on gas-assist struts to access storage.
Access to the bow on the 26 OBX comes down the middle through the windshield via a hinged Ã¢â‚¬Å“door.Ã¢â‚¬Â The stainless steel windshield header is a step above the industry norm of anodized aluminum, and curves elegantly off to the port and starboard sides in single pieces.
The table can seat four for a light lunch.
The bow is lined with plush bolsters all around the space. The footwell is roomier than this familiar design pattern normally yields, though it isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t revolutionary in this regard.
The seating wraps around in a Ã¢â‚¬Å“UÃ¢â‚¬Â shape, with forward-facing backrests on the port and starboard sides accompanied by adjustable armrests. Just below the bolsters on each side are stainless steel grab rails and stereo speakers.
Kids love to sit forward, but seating is wide enough for large adults. There is a single grab handle in the cutout abaft the speaker. The backrests on the 26 OBX have double-stitched diamond patterns on the lumbar support. Storage in the helm console is accessed by pulling up the seat back.
Storage. Just as in the cockpit and transom, the seating in the bow lifts to reveal more storage. These storage spaces throughout the 26 OBX are Resin Transfer Molded fiberglass, providing super strength and reliability.
Forward the seating in the bow is the anchor locker, which has a latch and a flush Ã¢â‚¬Å“doorÃ¢â‚¬Â in hinges, keeping the anchor in a dedicated space away from other, more delicate, boat functions and spaces.
Every deck boat has a beach re-boarding ladder; this is the one on the 26 OBX. The locker below is for the anchor. POWER
The 26 OBX has three options for its single outboard engine:
Choice of Outboard. Regal offers the option to purchase the 26 OBX Ã¢â‚¬Å“blank,Ã¢â‚¬Â without one of their Yamaha power options installed. This allows the owner to have the outboard brand of choice.
The 26 OBX handled well and had a top speed of over 50 mph. PERFORMANCE
Our test boat was powered by a Yamaha 4.2 L V6 F300XCA outboard. With 90% of fuel load aboard, two people, and 50 lbs. (22.7 kg) of equipment, our test boat weighed an estimated 5,710 lbs. (2,590 kg). Test conditions were calm and the temperature was 72 degrees.
We recorded her top speed at 50.5 mph. Her best cruise was at 3500 rpm, where she went 24.7 mph and burned 8.8 gph, getting 2.8 statute miles per gallon. That gave her a range of 260 statute miles.
Time to plane was 3.2 seconds. Zero to 20 was clocked at 6.2 seconds, and 0-to-30 was 9.3 seconds.
OPTIONS TO CONSIDER
Regal offers a Limited Lifetime Hull warranty.
The Regal 26 OBX is an outboard, excursion-ready boat well-tailored for the family-boating experience.
The Regal 26 OBX is unusual, as she is a deck boat with a stepped hull with a luxury package inside. She is large enough to use both in large lakes and for coastal cruising, which separates her from many deck boats which have low freeboard and are wet. As the kids grow older, they are not as likely to grow out of this boat as they might a boat that is 22Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ (6.71 m) or smaller. Because she is trailerable, she can go to larger bodies of water as captain and crew become more comfortable.
Regal has been building sportboats for decades, and it knows what it is doing. The result is a vessel with systems that are reliable and installations that use industry best practices. Regal boats generally score well among owners that are BoatTEST members.
The Regal 26 OBX has a relatively high freeboard for a deck boat her size.
