Regal Sport Cruiser Goes Ablaze in Knoxville

A twelve meter Regal sport cruiser titled m/y Chances R with five persons and a dog onboard, caught fire at 06:30 early morning time of Saturday 31 August, on the Tennessee River near Neyland Stadium, in Knoxville.  Knoxville Fire Department responded to the call, with all occupants managing to get off the sport cruiser unharmed, before the sport cruiser was wrecked down by the fire.  The occupants said that early in the morning they smelled smoke fire, which appeared coming off the boat's generator, seeing this they got off-board only for them to see her burn some minutes later.  Knoxville Fire Department later reported that the cause of the fire was indeed the generator.
The boat in this fire is a Regal 4160 Commodore, as produced from 2000 to 01.  The Regal 4160 offered a two cabins layout, and is powered by twin 450 or 480hp engines with a line shaft propulsion in propeller pockets.  The Regal 4160 Commodore came out as a replacement to the 1995 to 99 402 Commodore, and evolved into the 4260 Commodore with a forward looking radar arch and mini T-top in 2002.
