Description: Rare Value! Motivated Seller & Recent Reduction Priced for Quick Sale!

New Motor, New Trailer, New Standing Rigging etc, priced well below comparably outfitted boats.

Placed the ad in 2017 and then took her off the market to sail during the summer.

The MacGregor 26X is a great, versatile boat. If you're not familiar with them, it's:
- Trailerable
- Floats in 1 foot of water (with Centerboard down draft is 5' 9")
- Sails well in light wind,
- Can tow a tube, wakeboard, or ski
- Speeds home/out of trouble @ 20 MPH
- Large Open Cabin that sleeps 7
- Ingenious Water Ballast System keeps boat lightweight for power and trailer.

Everything except the Hull and the Sails have been replaced within the past 3 years. I bought the boat for $12K, replaced all aged mechanicals for another $14K and I'm selling the boat for far less than I have spent on her.

Why? Recently bought a larger boat to cruise and don't want to maintain 2 boats any more.

Some suggestions when looking at MacGregors:

- If the boat comes with the OEM single axle trailer, assume you'll need to buy a new one, . It's a steel frame and the salt water causes all sort of problems with corrosion on the frame, the wheels locking, brake failures, etc... (search online in the for the horror stories). Do yourself a favor and avoid getting stuck on the side of the road towing a broken down trailer or damaging your tow vehicle when the trailer fails).
- If the boat is 10 years old you'll probably need to make additional replacements immediately or sometime soon:
- Motor
- Rigging
- Sails

This boat has already had everything that wears replaced except the sails which are in good condition (always protected with UV cover). She's ready for sailing season!

If you're a new sailor, I'll be happy to take you out on the boat so that you're comfortable with her.

Equipment: If you ARE familiar with the boat, this is a well maintained and equipped boat... here's why it's a great find:
- Hull is in great shape
- New Tandem Axle Aluminum Trailer ($5,500 upgrade in 2012)
- New Yamaha 60 HP 4 stroke Motor ($7,000 upgrade in 2012)
- New Standing Rigging (Mast, Boom, Stays, etc... $1,200 in 2014)
- New Steering Cables ($200 in 2012).
- Rebuilt CDI Roller Furler ($200 in 2017)
- New DC Panel ($150 in 2017)
- New LED Lights in Cabin ($100 in 2017)
- Upgraded OEM Plywood to Starboard in Cabin ($350 in 2017)
- Genoa in Good to Excellent Shape
- Mainsail in Good to Excellent Shape
- etc...
