About this MacGregor 26X Powersailer

The MacGregor 26X was a hugely successful trailer/sailer with over 5,000 built.  Designed to be an economical boat to own and maintain, they are easy to sail, fun to motor and straightforward to trail behind a car.  All this with a comfortable and spacious interior layout.  This excellent one-owner example is only for sale due to the owner's advancing years and is in amazing condition for her age.  Lightly used since new, and only for day-sailing, she is probably the best example we've seen

Viewing by appointment through our Suffolk Office 01473 659 681.

Additional Comments

The owners bought the boat new in 1997 and have only day-sailed her since - they have never slept aboard!  She has been winterised every year in a barn and been unused for half its life.  Pampered, polished and lovingly cared for and completely unused for the last two years, she is in a condition that belies her age.
