2007 Regal Boats 2565 Description

There are more cubic feet of livable interior space in this 25 Express than in Express Cruisers two feet longer. It’s lighter, brighter and airier than any conventional trailerable cruiser. The large, windowed main cabin offers a comfortable dining area that converts to an oversized berth. There’s a full standup head compartment, and the galley is complete with stove, sink with pressurized water, refrigerator, microwave and Corian® countertop. The mid-cabin comfortably accommodates children or adults in the large berth. All this in a 25-foot trailerable cruiser that offers the highest level of standard equipment – equipment you would pay for as options on similar cruisers

They Say
Regal’s 2565 Window Express proves that you can cruise comfortably in a 25' boat.

We Say The unique foredeck design of the 2565 Window Express provides more than just a window, allowing sunshine and a view. This bi-level bow also provides 6' of headroom in the forward cabin. In addition, the midcabin berth features a big 3'3"-by-2'9" entry, made possible because there is no well in the companionway steps above. Besides providing better access, the big entry helps stave off the feeling of sleeping in a cave. A complete galley with a fiddled counter, a standup head, and a standard pump-out com-mode all further substantiate Regal’s cruisabilty claim. Topside you’ll find a portside lounge with a pivoting backrest that allows passengers to focus either forward or turn and enjoy the party aft. Fold the aft bench to open up more cockpit space or access the roomy engine compartment. Note the hatch, which opens to the side so you can access the compartment from inside the cockpit or the swim platform. Regal’s OceanTrac hull has an 18-degree deadrise, which provided a nimble feel on the water even in choppy test conditions. Outfitted with a 280-hp Volvo Penta 5.7L Gi DuoProp stern drive, the 2565 Window Express pushed onto plane in under six seconds and reached a top speed of 43.6 mph.
