New Regency 65: Designed for Extended Cruising

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The new Regency 65 is designed for comfortable, long-range cruising anywhere from Alaska to the Caribbean, plus anywhere else you might have in mind. It’s a relatively heavy yacht (88,105 pounds) and its 18-foot-plus beam gives it a large footprint, so there’s lots of room. But that also means it will give you a good ride in a seaway where stability is always a blessing.

The Regency 65 is powered by twin 900-hp Volvos, giving it a cruising speed of 15 to 17 knots. Dial back to 8 to 9 knots and the yacht has a range of more than 1,000 nm.

The yacht comes in both pilothouse (pictured above) and flybridge models. But it has three staterooms and two heads below, plus a day head on the aft deck. Built in Taiwan, it is designed with fine handcrafted carpentry and woodwork and lots of interior granite, marble and stainless steel for a luxurious look and feel. The pilothouse and flybridge come with Pompanette helm chairs.

The flybridge is meant for major entertaining, with a small galley with granite countertops, sink, fridge and an overhead TV. A barbecue grill with a propane tank is aft.

The salon has seven-foot-high ceilings and large side windows. There’s an L-shaped leather sofa to port with a glass coffee table and wooden end table; two soft leather chairs are to starboard and aft.

The galley is forward, just aft of the pilothouse; with granite countertops, a four-burner induction cooktop, oven, fridge, freezer and microwave.

On the accommodations deck, the master suite is full beam with a king-sized bed, nightstands and a large flatscreen TV on the wall. The en suite head is designed to look like a spa; it even has a heated floor. The VIP stateroom is forward, for privacy, with a queen-sized island bed. The guest cabin has twin beds and an entertainment center. The second head below also has a heated floor.

The Regency is imported by Seattle Yachts, with offices there, of course, plus others on the West Coast and in Annapolis, Florida and Canada.
