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.
Very light construction has its ups and downs. It likes to plane and paces with boats longer than her when handled right. However the deck, cabin top, and cockpit are flimsy as a result.
She is quite tipsy and is suited more for thrill seekers.
The reason for selling is that I no longer have the time to devote to restoring her and I'm looking into liveaboards. I've used her as a cruiser only, though she'd make a fun club racer.

Extensive work has been done. Still plenty to be done. Inquire for details.

The exterior is pretty rough cosmetically. Despite that she still cleans up nice.

The engine is a 1969 6hp Evinrude short shaft. It circulates water well except in reverse, fairly clean water passageways. Good compression on both cylinders, good ignition as well. Lower Unit leaks a bit, as gear oil gets milky. Engine pull start cords have broken on me with this setup. I start it on the fly wheel with a line, simplicity is dependable.
The interior has been refinished from companionway forward. Places for one 70qt coleman 5day cooler for food and a smaller 28qt 3day cooler for drinks. The cushions have been steam cleaned and re-upholstered. Minimal electrical is run for keel winch only. Camping lantern works great for light. AA powered detachable Nav lights also work great. Deck leaks, cockpit leaks a bit. Keep her covered, I have a nice vinyl 18 oz. tarp for it. No bottom leaks though. Deck has some minor soft spots.
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 in the past.
The trailer is in towing condition, overall condition fair.
Better pictures to come.
In the mean time come look her over and make an offer.
Thanks for looking!
