2014 Tattoo 26
- Stock #099284 -
This boat was once known as the MacGregor, which was built in Costa Mesa in Southern California. Renamed the Tattoo 26, the new boat is now built in Florida by the daughter of the MacGregor family and her husband.
The idea is to keep boating fun and affordable for families.
This model has a redesigned steering pedestal and helm seat, the water ballast plug has been changed, the mainsail has slightly increased square footage, and the traveler has been replaced by a pad eye on the centerline.
The Tattoo 26 still has built-in foam flotation so it can fill with water but still float and is self-righting.
Under sail, the boat is kept tracking with the deep daggerboard that is controlled by a line in the cockpit. The tabernacle mast can be raised by one person and carries a total of 300 feet of sail area with the standard 100% jib. The rudders may be raised completely to allow the boat to float in just over one foot of water.
The Tattoo 26 is light for both easier trailering and better handling under power. It weighs only 2,500 pounds to which you add just over 1,700 pounds of water ballast when ready to sail.
The boat is under eight feet wide so it's street-legal and the aluminum trailer adds another 700 pounds to the tow package; the whole setup can be pulled with a moderate-sized tow vehicle.
The watertight interior is great for a weekend with a double berth under the cockpit, an enclosed head, a dinette for two that drops down to a berth, a straight settee, and a small galley with a sink and a place for a stove. There's a small vee berth forward which is suitable for children or storage.
A neat feature is the sliding galley area. When more room is needed the whole unit slides forward on rails.
The headroom is six feet and up to four can sleep inside.
Tankage includes 24 gallons of fuel and nine gallons of water. The toilet is a Domestic 970 series that will either drain overboard or into a holding tank for later pumpout. It has never been used.
The cockpit has 2 large cushioned seats with the fuel tanks under. The rear seat hinges up for access to the engine.
There is also a large sun shade for great protection at anchor or at the marina.
Overall, a fun boat for a daysail or a weekend camp out on the water.
