1997 MacGregor 26X

16 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

MacGregor 26X. 1997 She’s got water ballast and a swing keel and will float in less than a foot of water. If you want to get from the Pacific to the Atlantic the quick way, she can travel on her own upgraded two axle MacGregor trailer which has its own loaded tool box. The trailer has brand new disc brakes, bearings, seals & an automatic brake lockout when you put your vehicle in reverse. She’s equipped with a main sail with lazy jacks, a roller furling jib, an asymmetrical spinnaker and a spinnaker pole. All control lines are led aft to the cockpit. The sails are all in excellent condition. The mast can be raises easily by one person with the gin pole mast raising system. One person can launch her in about 30 minutes after a little practice. Here are some extras: Solar powered salon exhaust vent fan, emergency equipment, life vests, salon clothes line, 2 coolers, enclosed head with Port-a-Potty, fenders, anchors( front & rear), hand lines, emergency equipment, two burner stove, etc., etc. It’s all there – just set the sails and go. With the sails down and loaded, she’ll travel 15 mph under the reliable power of the Honda 50 hp engine. This engine has a generator to keep your batteries charged, an electrical power hoist and a new hour meter. If the wind’s up sail, if it dies or it isn’t right, no problem, just start the engine. There are two 12 gal gas tanks, roller furling jib, heavy duty, UV resistant sail covers, clear plastic dodger & a Bimini top. Waterproof SoCal coastal maps, Lake Mead & Lake Powell maps. Lots & lots of extras. Too many to list. MacGregor made this boat unsinkable even if it’s full of water. It’s very safe. $16,500 Price reduced (3/14/12) to $15,500 OBO (3/31/12)Sold not available.

Equipment on Board:

This boat is very easy to steer because it has been up graded with hydraulic steering. That will also make it easier for an autopilot to control the wheel. All control lines are led aft so all that’s left for single handing is the autopilot. It has a Tridata Auto Helm that displays depth, speed, time, distance etc. It also has a new master control switch and breaker panels. It has a super AM/FM Radio/CD/Aux. stereo system, with water proof speakers in salon and the cockpit. It has VHS TWO way communications radio with weather channels and Coast Guard frequencies. It has standing head room. The galley has a stove and sink with both outside and fresh water pumps, two 12V batteries (one is brand new), electric automatic bilge pump, 25 gal fresh water storage with plumbing system, deck shower and an enclosed bath room. She’s got a steering wheel/instrument pulpit cover, plus cockpit seat cushions and drink holders. She sleeps two in the V berth, two in the dining table/bed conversion and as many as you can get in the oversized king bed under the cockpit. But then how many bodies do you really want on board. As Captain of this ship, it’s your call. This sale also includes an inflatable pull behind tender boat with wooden floor and paddles, a nylon protection apron, and a foot pump which all fits in its own small seat bag and stores aboard. She has everything you need to sail any US lake or to Catalina or to the Florida Keys or… $16,500 Price reduced
