Manufacturer Provided Description

Quick, stable and responsive, the revolutionary MacGregor 26 is the fastest and best handling of any of the trailerable cruising sailboats. It offers high-speed powering without compromising sailing performance. Have the peace and quiet of sailing, or the fun of powering around at a good clip over 24 mph. Its high-speed under power opens up cruising waters that are out of reach for a conventional sailboat. The MacGregor 26 is also trailerable making still more waterways accessible. The trailer also makes it possible to avoid the expense of permanent in-the-water storage..

Launching is easy because the boat sits lower on its trailer than any other trailerable cruiser. Once in the water, running the motor in reverse, or giving the boat a gentle push, will slide the boat off its trailer. Once the 26 is launched, it needs only 9 in. of water to float. It will sail in places most other boats simply cannot go. The 26 has a centerboard that retracts completely into the hull, allowing the boat to be launched and beached without fear of damage to the centerboard system.

The MacGregor 26 is just under 8 ft. wide, and can be legally trailered everywhere in the United States. The MacGregor 26 is one of the best handling and fastest trailerable cruising sailboats available anywhere.

Accommodations

The weather-tight cabin offers full, standing headroom and comfortable accommodations for family cruising. In addition, there are storage compartments under every seat and berth. For a boat of this size, there is an enormous amount of storage space!

A full double berth is at the forward end of the cabin. The table lowers to convert the dinette into a double berth. The front seat-back lifts out to create an uninterrupted sleeping area that is 13 ft. long. Unlike many boats, the mast post does not interfere with any of the berths.

Looking from the forward end of the cabin, one can see the large entry - getting in and out of the cabin is easy. The removable step conceals the ballast tank filling valve. On the starboard side is the fully enclosed head compartment.  

  • Sleeping accommodations for 6
  • Cushion to convert table into additional berth
  • Enclosed head compartment with extra capacity marine toilet
  • 6' Headroom
  • Stern rail seats
  • Large Bimini for rail seats

 

Galley

The galley - to port - has a sink and plenty of countertop space. There is a large storage cabinet below the galley and compartments designed for small items (plates, silverware, bottles, etc.) on its forward face. The large dinette is raised for a view out of all the windows when seated.  Five can be seated around the table.

Sink:

  • Hand pump cold water
  • Folding Dinette table (with additional cushion to convert to an additional berth)
  • Overhead lights
  • 12V accessory outlet

Sail to Power Conversion

MacGregor developed the concept of a water ballast system. It has since been widely copied and is now the standard throughout the trailerable sailboat industry. This system makes it possible to have a very lightweight boat for powering and trailering, and the heavy stability necessary for safe sailing.

After launching, the transom valve is opened and a tank in the bottom of the hull is gravity filled with 1400 lbs. of sea water. It takes about five minutes. The valve is then closed, trapping the water.

Under power or sail the ballast makes the boat stable and self-righting. When the boat is floated back onto its trailer the valve is opened. The car and trailer start up the ramp and the water drains out of the boat leaving a trailering package that is lighter than most small powerboats.

The tank can also be emptied while the boat is in the water: Under power, at about 7 mph, open the valve on the transom and the tank will drain in about 5 minutes.

Sails

One person can raise the mast with the (upgraded) mast raising system, launch the boat and sail away in 10 to 15 minutes.

The 26 is balanced beautifully, and the big twin rudders give excellent control. The boat is light so it requires less sail area to sail fast.  In heavy winds, these boats have exceeded 17 mph under sail. If the 1,400 lbs. of water ballast is drained, the boat becomes an even faster sailboat.

The long, deep centerboard keeps the boat from side slipping when sailing into the wind. The centerboard, like the twin rudders, pivots and will kick up if it hits an obstruction. This allows the boat to be beached without risk of damage to the board or its attachments. The board is controlled by a line leading to the cockpit, and can be pulled completely up into the boat for powering and for downwind sailing. The MacGregor 26 centerboard has a ratio of 5 to 1.  This high aspect ratio increases lift as the boat sails into the wind and reduces drag. This is one of the major reasons why this boat will point closer into the wind and sail faster than other trailerables.
