Regal 28.60 Powerboat - Equipped for Research

The Ocean Conservation Society research vessel is a 28.60 ft Regal powerboat optimized for coastal and offshore navigation. She is equipped with electronics and communication equipment allowing us to download satellite data on weather trends and oceanographic conditions.

Designed With Comfort in Mind

The Regal is a self-contained, well-built boat. She has a galley that includes refrigerator, stove, pressure water sink, microwave, etc. This boat has comfortable group dining and accommodations for 4-5 people with one separate small cabin, and an enclosed head. On deck, there is a wet bar, a transom shower, and comfortable seating.

Distinguished in Her Class
She is a stable vessel with twin Volvo Penta engines that allow fast and comfortable motoring at speeds over 15 knots.

Safety at Sea

The Regal is outfitted for safety at sea with self-locating satellite EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon), and a full medical kit for emergencies.

We are always looking for vessels to conduct our on-the-water research. If interested in donating your boat, please contact us at
