2008 Regal Boats 2220 FasDeck Description


Nothing gets a boater's blood pumping more than an adrenaline-laced, throttle-induced run through a sheet of glass, diving into turns and shooting out of the hole with equal parts power and grace.

Especialy when you can look good doing it.

It is this sensation Regal designers envisioned when they first put pencil to paper to develop the new 2220 FasDeck, a boat with the bloodlines of previous Regal FasTrac® sportboat designs but with the necessity of today's deckboat functionality. Featuring coordinated sets of sharp, defined style lines and combining the athleticism and ride of the proven FasTrac hull, the open-cockpit, and open-bow 2220 FasDeck pushes traditional deckboats to the sidelines.

Regal FasDeck 2220

Just One Look. Is all it took.

To create the FasDeck 2220, Regal stretched its 20' FasTrac runabout hull by 2', broadened the chines, and dropped on a new deck with creases as sharp as an Italian suit. The result? A boat that looks fabulous and offers all of the function we expect from a deckboat, including a head compartment, a bow boarding platform, and seating for an extended family.

That seating space includes a clever contraption on the stern, where a low-profile sunpad over the motorbox doubles as the aft cockpit seat. The backrest pivots on a tubular frame, and when it's tilted into the cockpit, the entire seating surface becomes an aft-facing lounge. There's a separate jump seat in the port corner of the platform that's hinged to reach stowage extending under the cockpit seats, so you can stash wet gear without dragging it into the boat.

The bow seat cushions form a roomy, rectangular lounge space, and the bottom cushion in the bow peak lifts off to reveal a fiberglass step up to the wide bow platform, where a hatch covers an anchor locker and a spot for an optional bow boarding ladder ($154). Our test boat was rigged with the optional aluminum wakesports tower ($2,423 plus $731 for board racks), which incorporates a suntop that replaces the standard Bimini top.

The FasDeck 2220 is constructed with traditional glass-encapsulated plywood stringers that do a good job of absorbing hull and engine vibration. I was impressed with the robust through-bolted aluminum engine mounts, the tidy plumbing, and the extensive use of watertight Deutsch electrical connectors. A thick rubber seal and insulation help dampen powertrain noise, an important consideration in a deckboat, where the engine is often within the cockpit.

The FasDeck 2220 planed smartly on its stepped hull with 320 hp under the hatch, and despite my best efforts and a confused seaway on a busy Sunday, the hull exhibited no unusual handling traits -- those extended chines that broaden the bow aren't active once the boat is up and running.
