The MacGregor 26M

The MacGregor 26M

The MacGregor 26M offers so much for so little. It is the fastest and best handling trailerable sailboat in production today. It is simple to rig, launch and sail. And you don’t need an expensive mooring or slip. It can simply be stored on its trailer.

The 26M offers high speed powering without compromising sailing performance. You can have the peace and quiet of sailing, or the fun of powering around at a good clip; over 22 mph!

Unlike any other boat, it opens up a world of endless variety: sailing, swimming, fishing, diving, water skiing or just fooling around on the water. Its speed under power lets you get to cruising waters that are out of reach for a traditional sailboat.

You can live on this boat on land or water. Launch the boat, anchor in a quiet cove and you can be as far away from the world as you want to be. You can have your own island, for free, at some of the most beautiful vacation areas on earth. Unlike land bound recreational vehicles, you will not be limited to crowded and expensive RV parks. You will never tire of the wonderful sensation of shutting off the engine and enjoying the quiet serenity of moving along under sail.

The price is low, the trailer is your mooring….and the wind is free.
