Lift Kept! Motivated Seller*** ALL reasonable offers considered!!
MacGregor has been building sailboats for some 40 years and claims to have sold more sailboats than any other manufacturer. With a focus on trailerable pocket cruisers, MacGregor developed the first water ballast system for their 26-footer in the late 1980s. The invention was ingenuous: fill the ballast tank when you launch the boat to give it stability when heeled over under sail, then drain the ballast when you pull the boat back out on the launch ramp, making it much lighter for trailering with an ordinary car.
MacGregor's mast-raising system makes it easy for one person to rig the boat in the parking lot beside the launch ramp. The boat sails well under just the mainsail when it's breezy, and the optional roller-furler makes it easy to get the jib out without leaving the cockpit. Critics have argued that a boat that looks like a powerboat can't sail very well, but I was surprised to find that it accelerates fast, tracks reasonably well, and is easy to control.
The 26 is an innovative design. The price is good, and the boat has a remarkable range of performance and well thought-out accommodations. If you're looking for an easily trailered family cruiser the MacGregor 26M should earn a spot on your short list.
