Share |


EDENTON, N.C., October 30, 2015  – Regulator Marine, builders of the Finest Offshore Sportfishing Boats and home of The Legendary Ride, and the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas have formed a multi-faceted partnership to help Regulator Marine dealers find even greater success in the year ahead.

As part of this partnership, Regulator Marine has joined MRAA as a Platinum Partner Member, the highest level of membership available. In addition, the boat builder has sponsored its dealers in joining the MRAA by paying for a one-year Retail Membership for each of its dealerships.

Finally, Regulator Marine is sponsoring its dealers’ registration for the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo, to be held Nov. 15-18 in Orlando. The company will pay for two people from each dealership location to attend the four-day event. MDCE features more than 30 educational sessions geared toward helping dealers improve personally and professionally in areas like leadership, management, sales, marketing and service.

“We believe that membership in the MRAA will afford our Regulator dealers with an opportunity to learn more,” says Joan Maxwell, President of Regulator Marine, “to use those takeaways to manage their businesses better, and ultimately have a positive impact on Regulator’s business.”

The MRAA Retail Membership gives all Regulator Marine dealers and their employees direct access to the MRAA Rewards Program, which features more than 30 cost-savings, revenue-generating, and education-focused benefits. The average MRAA member that used the MRAA benefits in 2014 saved $685.55, earned $997.91 in additional revenues and had free access to educational resources that are valued at more than $9,500 in total.

The MDCE, which has been voted by MRAA Members as the No. 1 benefit that the association offers, features world-class training and educational opportunities that are specific to boat and engine dealers. Through a pair of keynotes, 12 in-depth pre-conference workshops, and 20 general sessions, the event shares ideas, strategies, best practices and expert advice that dealers can implement immediately upon returning to their businesses.

“The MRAA and its benefits, along with the MDCE, have been designed to deliver results for today’s dealers,” says Matt Gruhn, President of MRAA. “We are very honored that Regulator Marine would not only recognize the tools and resources we offer, but also endorse us in such a significant way. We look forward to welcoming those Regulator Marine dealers that were not already a part of the MRAA family and helping them utilize the resources we have available.”


About Regulator Marine

Since 1988, Regulator Marine has raised the bar time and again in pursuit of the legendary ride.
We don’t cut corners. We don’t compromise. We check, test, and recheck every square inch of each and every boat, ensuring that you are getting nothing short of marine engineering perfection.

Built in North Carolina and tested against the challenging conditions of the Outer Banks, Regulator boats
are seriously tough sportfishers known for a dry, soft, and comfortable ride.

With a full line of the finest in offshore sportfishing boats, Regulator delivers legendary fit, finish & ride in every model. The first-ever 41 and 34SS lead the fleet with every imaginable feature to entertain with ease and pursue the offshore catch; the newly redesigned 34 and best-selling 28 deliver the rugged center console heritage Regulator is know for; and the 25 and 23 offer every amenity for serious fishermen and those who relish family time on the water.

Developed in the challenging conditions of the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Regulators are built one hull at a time, for a select few. These are seriously tough sportfishers engineered to withstand and perform - matched by an extraordinary smooth, dry, and comfortable ride.

The experts at Regulator consider every detail and plan each model with the customer in mind. Tackle centers designed by fishermen for fishermen, oversized livewells and storage compartments to keep your equipment accessible and dry, and a convenient layout that allows you to make the most of your time on the water. Clean lines, thoughtful design and a dedication to outstanding fit and finish make your experience more rewarding with every ride.

Every Regulator on the water today shares the same proven hull design – a deep-vee with 24 degrees of deadrise at the transom, designed by renowned Naval Architect Lou Codega. Regulator's boats reflect his extensive knowledge and passion for offshore fishing and prepare you for the unpredictable nature of the marine environment. It's the Codega hull design that delivers the soft ride Regulator is known for, and it's the company's dedication to quality, testing and evaluation that realize that promise.
