Regal is no stranger to modern styling and its 2500 is no exception. We found it loaded with thoughtful touches that raise the Regal 2500 up from mediocrity to something akin to a floating piece of nautical art (her towing arch notwithstanding). Putting the subjectivity of aesthetic considerations aside, her most notable attribute in our opinion is her handling at high speed. Years ago Regal’s designers broke the code on how to take a stepped hull and make it behave during aggressive cranking and banking. Our captain’s keen eye found a wrinkle or two, but how important are they?
