This MacGregor 26M in Stratford, CT is powered by both sails and a Honda 50 hp 4-Stroke outboard and includes a custom trailer.
The 26M is one of the most innovative production sailboats ever, featuring:
• Planing hull with only 12" draft (daggerboard up)
• Water ballast for additional stability under sail
• Max speed under power of over 17 knots
• Sailing speeds of over 14 knots in heavy air
• Rotating mast for better lift and power
• Light weight for easy trailering
• Mast can be easily raised/lowered by one person with the smart raising system.
This is an easy to sail boat that offers unique performance and versatility. You can raise the mast and trailer-launch the 26M in 10-15 minutes. Adjust the water ballast and daggerboard, and you can easily sail past other boats other boats of similar and larger sizes. If the wind dies or a storm approaches, drop the sails start the motor, and zoom home or to your next mooring faster than most sailboats twice her size.
If you want to go exploring beyond your home waters, just hook up the trailer and head out. No need to stay in a motel along the way, the easy access ladder built into the trailer makes access to the boat easy on the road and you can use it as a camper.
You can sleep six in the large double aft, two single berths in the main salon, and v-berth forward, with plenty of interior lighting. The galley features a microwave oven, electric stove, and stowable dinette table leaves. The enclosed head has a porta-potti with a deck pumpout. At the dock or in an RV park, just plug in the shore power and you'll have most of the comforts of home, including a Pioneer AM/FM/CD player.
This is a well maintained, original owner boat.
