About this Sailboat:
LOA 25’10”, Beam 7’10”, Draft varies 11″ to 5’6″. Displacement Dry: 2,350 lbs., Water Ballast: 1150 lbs. and Permanent Ballast: 300 lbs.
Purchased from Blue Water Yachts in Seattle-WA. Original owner, relocated to Texas from Washington state. This 2008 Macgregor 26M sailboat with ocean-blue hull color is in great condition, well-maintained, and ready to hit the water today!
Comes equipped with wheel steering, 70HP outboard engine, and a retractable keel. Provides the stability and sailing performance of a 30 ft keelboat, yet is fully trailerable and can motor at 20 mph for pulling water toys/skier, truly the best of both worlds!

The upgraded mast raising and water ballasted boat systems enable single-handed rigging, trailering, launching and boat recovery functionality. This boat can navigate in shallow waters of only 12 inches, and when needed, can be beached bow-in on sandy shores for beach access/convenience.
Sail OR Power to your Destination:
The 70hp Suzuki DF70 4-stroke outboard engine is configured to a center console for convenient throttle, custom steering, and trim controls. The Suzuki DF-70 hp is the most powerful outboard engine option for the 26M, and Blue Water Yachts is one of the few dealers in the U.S. certified to install above 60hp. The sturdy aluminum trailer with surge brakes combined w/ a de-ballasted boat expands the range of compatible tow vehicles.
Equipment on Board:
Rotating mast, mainsail, boomvang, CDI roller furling genoa/jib, Garmin GPS 440s chartplotter w/ U.S. inland lakes card, depth sounder, 2-12 gallon gas tanks, running/stern/masthead lights, safety package, quick rig kit w/ halyards led to cockpit, single-line reefing, mooring kit w/ anchor, chain & rode, boat hook, swim ladder, custom cockpit cushions, stern rail seats, bimini & dodger (provides excellent shade/enclosure w/ marine-tough sunbrella fabric), custom covers for mainsail & genoa/jib, hand bearing compass, docking lines and 4 fenders.
Weathertight cabin offers full standing headroom, interior lights, large sofa, dinette seats w/ folding table, and interior floor carpet. Galley area features a marine CD/FM/AM stereo w/ cabin speakers, stove, sink, countertop, extra storage, and built-in cooler. Comfortable berthing accommodations feature a full forward V-berth, large queen-sized quarter berth and saloon berth that sleeps 4-6 total. Other special features include porta-potti w/ privacy door, 30amp shore power system, 6 position 12V breaker panel, dual 6V marine house batteries w/ built-in charger and battery combiner.
Two years of anti-fouling hull protection remain if buyer desires to slip the boat in-water full-time at a marina. In 2010, spent $1,300 to have 3 coats of hull barrier clear epoxy w/ Petit Protect applied before overcoating with 2 solid coats of Pettit Ultima SR anti-fouling bottom paint. And when storing on trailer, boat comes equipped with full-size heavy-duty reflective cover for winter/summer protection.
Unfortunately, we just don’t have time to sail now and not getting enough use to justify keeping it. This is a great way to get an almost new boat for $12k less than a brand new one w/ all these equipment add-ons that make boating life so much more enjoyable.
