This is an absolutely fabulous boat that is in incredible condition. She is left kept, features new blocks and less than 150 on both engines. It is possibly the cleanest 17 year old boat I have ever boarded, and it will not disappoint.
In our biased opinion, the Regal 2760 / 2860 Commodore express cruiser built from about 1999 to 2005 is one of the best 28′ cruisers ever produced. The model number was changed for 2004-2005 to the 2860 with only minor changes in fixtures and finish items. Twin 4.3L engines provide great performance with reasonable gas consumption while an 9’11″ beam yields a class leading cabin and cockpit. The current 2860 Commodore Window Express cruiser is a completely new vessel. Click on the picture to go to our photo tour and read on for a detailed review.

Base Boat and Performance
All 2760 and 2860′s where built using twin 4.3L Mercruiser or Volvo engines. Some 2760′s were built with Alpha I single prop outdrives with some reports of difficulty planing. Most where built with either the Volvo Duo-prop or Mercruiser Bravo III twin-prop outdrives. Our Mercruiser powered 2760 planes in 7-10 seconds with no tabs and a nominal load of 1/3 fuel, full water, 2 adults and 3 minor children, plus 24qt cooler, and supplies for an overnight. She will plane as slow as 25mph / 3100 RPM with tabs but prefers to run without tabs at 3400 – 3600 yielding 29-33 mph. Maximum speed is about 44mph at 4700RPM. Fuel consumption at cruise is ~16gph so we figure just under 2mpg for normal operation.
The steep 21 degree deadrise gives a solid ride through chop and wakes. This comes at a cost of draft – this being one of the deepest draft 28′ crusiers at 39″-42″ (book is 39″, we measured 41″ in-water with ours). This hasn’t been a major handicap for us – just something to consider close to shore – most other I/O’s draft in the 32″-38″ range. On plane, as the pictures in our gallery show, the boat rides an easy 6″ or more and trimming the drives can provide a few extra inches at idle.
The 2760 / 2860 comes well equiped from the factory with standard radar arch, manual head, microwave, stove, fridge, cockit and cabin tables and fillers, bow sunpad canvas and shore power. Common options include the 5Kw Kohler generator, air conditioning / heat, automatic fire supression, windlass, toilet upgrades, and cockpit fridge.
1st Hand Experience
Our 2001 2760 has thus far fullfilled our expectations for a family cruiser. We routinely overnight with 2 adults and 3 minor children. The cabin is very child friendly with its level floor and big steps. Up top, the large port lounge and double helm seat lets everyone stay close to the driver underway. When stopped, we usually pivot the helm seat to open up the upper cockpit even more. During the day, we stow the aft table and use this area for swimming toys and towels while at night we put up the table for outdoor dinners.
Performance is excellent for a cruiser this size (we have the 190HP Merc 4.3L’s with Bravo III outdrives). We love the twin engines for great low-speed manuevering and find the boat planes easily with up to 4 adults and 6 children. With 6 or more adults, it does require tabs and/or moving people forward to get up on plane. Full gas and water improve shift the CG forward and make planing easier when loaded. Once on plane, weight distribution seems less sensitive and cruise speeds don’t seem to vary much on weight.
