26' 2008 MacGregor 26M
If you have ever been slowly motoring your sailboat and been passed by a MacGregor doing 30 km/hour, you will get why this boat was created. We have all dreamt of Powerboat speed in a sailboat.
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. The latest MacGregor model 26M is now also a fast powerboat.
What a following these little trailer-able sailboats have! They are fast under sail and very fast under power with a 50hp Honda pushing you along. Well equipped with 150% genoa on roller furling, mainsail, blue hull, bimini top, stern railing seats, cockpit cushions, BBQ, alcohol stove, chartplotter and more. ALWAYS STORED INDOORS.
A fun and affordable way to get out sailing! Or for that matter…powerboating! Two boats in one – You decide!
