1970 Macgregor Venture 24 located in Wisconsin for sale

24.5' Macgregor Venture 24


Description: Venture 24 trailer sailor.
Comes with Trailer and 6hp outboard.
Project boat in sailing condition.
The reason for selling is that I no longer have the time to devote to restoring her. I've used her as a cruiser only, though she'd make a fun club racer.
Things I've had to do:
-Rebuild keel from the steel and lead base.(2013)
-Apply barrier coat and bottom paint. (2013)
-Repaint rudder assembly.(2013)
-Convert mast stepping from keel stepped to deck stepped for easy mast raising.(2013)
-Replace 3 turnbuckles.(2013)
-Repair small crack in fiberglass near companionway.(2013)
-Replace battery mount under Vee Berth.(2013)
-Replace ply panel under companionway.(2013)
-Battery new in 2013.
-Added electric winch (2500lbs max)for raising and lowering keel.(2013)
-Built foredeck hatch, Mahogany. (2014)
-Added Cleats for foresail trimming.(2014)
-Replaced halyards.(2014)
-Moved fairleads to use for halyards.(2014)
-Replaced head gasket and thermostat on outboard.
The engine needs a carb cleaning or carb overhaul, I had to use partial choke to run it this season. It circulates water well, fairly clean water passageways. Good compression on both cylinders, good ignition as well. Lower Unit leaks a bit, as gear oil gets milky. Engine is pull start, 2 stroke with forward and reverse gears.

The interior has a few coats of paint peeling everywhere. Cushions need to be covered, foam is in fair condition (Steam Cleaned 2013). Some wood rot on interior ply structures. Needs rewiring (entire boat except keel winch). Deck leaks a bit, cockpit leaks a bit. No bottom leaks though. Deck has some minor soft spots.
All rigging is in working order.
6 sails. Original sails in Fair condition (mainsail and genoa). Newer sails include Mainsail with 1 set of reef points, 150% Genoa, 160% Genoa, and 170% genoa. ( 170 has a tear in Luff). Mainsheet and Boom Vang are jerry rigged, however they withstood 25-30kt gusts last season.
The trailer is in towing condition, overall condition fair.

Equipment: -Trailer with old spare.
-1969 Evinrude 6hp Fisherman 2 Stroke.
-6 Gal Fuel Tank
-Deep Cycle Marine Battery (2013)
-6 sails (described above)
-2 rudder boards, rudder assembly and tiller with old extension.
