Quick, stable and responsive, the revolutionary MacGregor 26 is the fastest and best handling of any of the trailerable cruising sailboats.

It 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 24 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 high speed under power lets you get to cruising waters that are out of reach for a conventional six mph sailboat.

On the trailer at highway speed, you can visit wonderful places that water-bound boats will never see, and you can avoid the expense of permanent in-the-water storage.

You can live on this boat on land or on the 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 recreation 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. You can sail forever, for free.

The large dinette is raised so you can see out of all the windows when seated. The table has a clear, protected inset for a chart of your sailing area. There are storage compartments under every seat and berth. For a boat of this size, there is an enormous amount of storage space.

The table lowers to convert the dinette into a double berth. The front seat back lifts out to create an uninterrupted sleeping area that is l3' long. Unlike many boats, the mast post does not inter- fere with any of the berths.

Looking from the front of the cabin, you can see the large entry. Unlike most sailboats, getting in and out of the cabin is easy. The removable step-conceals the ballast tank filling valve. The head is to the left, and the big rear aft berth is directly below the cockpit. 

Notice that there is no visible wood on the boat, so maintenance is easy. And we use high quality fabrics throughout. There are several good spots for electronics. On the right, just behind the galley is where the VHF radio is mounted.

 The rear berth is as large as a king-sized bed (7’7” x 6’3”) with full size sitting headroom over a large area. A berth this size is rare in a boat of any size. The 26 will sleep 6. 

The cockpit seats are over 6' long. The wheel steering is standard and takes up less room than a tiller. It makes the boat a lot easier to sail. The optional cushions provide extra comfort. The steering, seat, shown in the closed position, combines a lot of security with the convenience of a walk thru transom.
