Regal 36

Aug 27, 2020

At the end of July, Regal Marine unveiled their all-new models, the 36 XO and 36 Grande Coupe, on a live stream to the public.

The versatile layout of the 36 XO starts at the transom, with a low-to-the-water wraparound swim platform, featuring wings on both sides of the Yamaha outboards. Or, boaters have the power of choice with sterndrive engines on the 36 Grande Coupe, offering an expansive, full-beam swim platform and available PowerPlatform. With either choice, the configurations are perfect for enjoying the water.

Both models introduce a state-of-the-art Windshield Walk-Thru. Simply slide open the windshield and enjoy unimpeded access to the bow with multi-position seating. “These all-new products follow in the footsteps of our 35 Sport Coupe, which was an industry-changing and best selling model. One of my favorite features, similar to the 35 Sport Coupe, is the wide-open cockpit layout. However, with the new 36 XO and 36 Grande Coupe, you can get the best of both worlds: opt for the standard wide-open cockpit or extend your days out on the water with the glass enclosure upgrade.

InteriorIn the cabin, you will find a forward stateroom with ample storage and enough room to access the bed from both sides. The aft cabin offers a relaxing environment with convertible face-to-face seating that can be easily transformed into a sprawling queen for a perfect night’s sleep. Saving one of the best spaces for last, you will see an expansive walk-in shower in the head of the 36 XO and 36 Grande Coupe, a luxury space, featuring spa-like qualities throughout.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
