Probably the best presented and equipped Macgregor 26x available with many recent upgrades and equipment installed.
These boats are fantastic versatile boats suitable for any situation; they can float in less than 300mm of water, which is ideal for creek exploring. Watch the following clips which show just how versatile these boats are.
They take on just over half a ton of water (through a control hatch) as ballast for sailing, which can be drained whilst the boat is under low engine speeds. The water ballast system makes capsize impossible, and the sealed flotation system renders the boat unsinkable. When the water ballast is drained and the twin rudders (which allow great manoeuvrability) and centre board are retracted it becomes a speed boat capable of around 24 mph, making water ski-ing an enjoyable alternative to sailing. It also provides a fast return to port if required with power supplied by the Yamaha 50Hp four stroke petrol outboard with electric start and power tilt and trim,
Easily towable by the average family car, so no need for expensive mooring fees. Easy to tow to favourable locations for launch and recover. Purpose built Macgregor style two wheel galvanised trailer with built in ladder to enable easy mast raising and dropping before launch, or after recovery. Trailer was totally overhauled in 2015 with new bearings, wheels and tyres and full new towing hitch and jockey wheel, also has spare wheel bolted to trailer.
