Regulator Marine's Regulator 34 SS- "The Best Of Both Worlds"
“We call it the SS because of the Starboard seating feature,” said Owen Maxwell, director of Product Development at Regulator Marine when the first Regulator 34 SS was revealed almost ten years ago. Now, fishing enthusiasts hooked on the inevitably curious fishing culture, got a more modern Regulator 34 SS. And yes, Starboard seating is still a thing. Thanks to it, this fishing boat perfectly sums up the ethos of Regulator who want to build fishing/cruising boats for a wide range of uses. Starboard seating positions may not seem like a huge achievement on their own; however, on the starboard, Regulator succeeded in integrating so many impressive features in a compact package resulting in the 34 SS, more or less, becoming the perfect long haul offshore sportfishing boat. Their official company slogan goes as follows “the finest in offshore sportfishing boats” and if we are to judge by this boat, they delivered greatly.
As for the modern, reshaped and redesigned Regulator 34SS, Regulator Marine did continue with their best building techniques, but a number of innovations greatly enhance the sheer usability and comfort of the boat. A rear transom door separates the cockpit from the rear deck, but also provides ample room for fish. This is a fishing boat after all and all the rocket launchers on the T-top (and on the gunnels for the newest one) say only one thing - Bluefin Tuna.
Regulator boats are famous for their Bluefin tuna fishing capabilities and the 34 SS builds upon that image. As usual, outboard Yamaha Marine engines lengthen the boat by a few feet over what her name would suggest. She measures almost 38 feet with rear engine mount and engines. Two or three of them can be installed, each providing 300hp. Plenty enough power even for high seas. This is why Regulator Marine built quite a robust cockpit, helm, and a starboard lounge.
A myriad of handles ensures safety for all occupants and small design details such as the fold-up bolster on the helm seats, enormous storage places scattered throughout the boat and wonderfully crafted starboard seating position whose coaming pads provide exceptional locking position. To access all the fishing capabilities, one has to remove all the cushions which make up that roomy lounge area at the bow. After doing that, the Regulator 34 SS becomes a full-fledged fishing boat revealing numerous and gigantic storage areas under the cushions. This way rods can be secured from the elements and kept dry at all times. Back under the T-top, the captain has all he needs for long voyages. Regulator Marine did ergonomically adjust every single panel on the boat, meaning that all the instruments are clearly visible and helmsmen can access them from the seating position.
Comfort features do not end there. Regulator Marine managed to integrate a roomy cabin accessible through the doors on the corridor between the bow and the cockpit. When the cabin is entered via the small stairs, the Regulator's inside greets one with instruments on the right, a small microwave, a sink and even head. The front part of the cabin has a height of 6 foot 4 inches which is plenty for anyone. At the bow section of the cabin, Regulator Marine integrated a huge berth for two. Interestingly enough, even there one can find a place to secure a rod - four of them actually - on specially designed holders just above the berth. Clever thinking Regulator!
The cockpit at the back is another piece of clever engineering and design. Besides being perfectly suited for fishing endeavors with rocket launchers, bait compartments and easy access to boating “drivetrain” equipment, the Regulator 34 SS for sale is rigged with a clever folding seating bench above which, even when folded away, fishermen can find rest and lock on the coning pads. Of course, fishing is a priority and Transom doors at the back definitely help a lot with loading tuna on board. One thing is that the three massive Yamaha Outboard engines can get in the way, but a large engine platform makes it easy for fishermen to counter the problem. As usual, the Regulator 34SS price depends mostly on the engine choice and the personalization options. Yet, the units are well within the affordable range.
Regulator Marine did not cut any corners here: they used the best possible building techniques, best materials and integrated the best equipment into the vessel. The result is probably the most useful fishing boat whose characteristics can even excel beyond her fishing tasks. She can be a small cruiser or a nice and gentle family boat perfect for providing freedom on blue waters. The 350-gallon tank ensures long range, and the 31-gallon freshwater tank gives comfort too.
According to Yamaha Marine performance sheet, engines will return up to 1.28 miles per gallon (at 3000 rpm), while the Regulator 34SS top speed is rated at 62 mph.
