MacGregor has delivered over 3000 of the 26M


Trailer it Anywhere

The MacGregor 26 is one of the fastest and best handling of the trailer-able cruising sailboats. It is easy to sail, and easy to trailer to your favourite sailing waters. You don’t need an expensive mooring. It can be stored on its trailer, launched at any ramp, and rigged in just minutes.

On the trailer at highway speed, you can visit great places that water-bound boats will never see, and you can avoid the expense of in the water storage.


High Speed Power Boat
The MacGregor 26 offers high speed powering without compromising sailing performance. You can have the peace and quiet of sailing, or the fun of powering around at a good clip--over 22 mph. Unlike any other boat, it opens up a world of endless variety--sailing, swimming, fishing, diving, water skiing or just fooling around on the water. Its high speed under power lets you get to cruising waters that are out of reach for a conventional six mph sailboat.


The MacGregor 26 is our personal favorite - because of the pure simplicity and the accompanying reduced maintenance costs.

Live Aboard

You can live on this boat on land or on the water. Launch the boat, anchor in a quiet cove, and you can be as far away from the world as you want to be. You can have your own island, for free, at some of the most beautiful vacation areas on earth. Unlike land bound recreation vehicles, you will not be limited to crowded and expensive RV parks. You will never tire of the wonderful sensation of shutting off the engine and enjoying the quiet serenity of moving along under sail
