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. Quick, stable and responsive, the revolutionary MacGregor 26
is the fastest and best handling of any of the trailerable cruising sailboats. It is easy to trailer to your
favorite sailing waters. It can be stored on its trailer, launched at any ramp, and rigged in just minutes.
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 22 mph. Unlike any other boat, it opens up a world of
endless variety -- sailing, swimming, fishing, diving, water skiing or just having fun on the water.
The weather tight cabin offers full standing headroom, and comfortable accommodations for family cruising. The
large sofa seats and dinette seats can be used for conversational seating, or as comfortable berths. The galley
is on the left. It has a sink, large counter space, and room for a stove. Behind the mirrored bulkhead there
is a fully enclosed head compartment. A double berth is forward with an overhead hatch for good ventilation.
This view shows the galley in the forward position. The counter height is the same as you will find in the
average home kitchen. There is full standing headroom when working at the galley. There is a small rear seat
behind the galley, and easy access to the big rear berth. The dinette seat back lifts out for access to the
rear berth. The galley has its own water supply, room for an optional stove, and lots of storage.
This is the galley in the rear position. In this position, the majority of the galley is still out in the main
cabin so the stove and sink can be used. The galley can also be moved back another 12” to allow even more
space in the cabin. The galley is mounted on a set of rails that are recessed into the seat. It is easy to
move and can be locked in place at each of its 3 positions. The seat cushions are 5” thick and the seat
backs are soft and comfortable.
The MacGregor 26 has a pedestal mounted steering wheel. The wheel steering is standard and takes up less room
than a tiller. It is more natural to steer with a wheel than with a tiller and a lot more comfortable. It makes
the boat a lot easier to sail. The seats have high backs, and we did a lot of engineering to make sure they are
comfortable. The optional seat cushions add a lot to the comfort.
Here is the boat full of water. The boat has built-in solid foam flotation to keep it afloat in the event of
damage. It won't sail fast when fully flooded, but it beats swimming. Most competing boats do not offer this
essential safety protection, and their heavy keels can pull them straight to the bottom. Don't get a boat
without solid flotation!
This cutaway drawing shows the interior layout. The main feature of the interior is the galley that slides
fore and aft and locks in 3 positions. In the forward position, there is excellent access to the rear double
berth. With the galley in the mid position, there is a lot more room in the main cabin for seating and
socializing. With the galley fully to the rear, the rear berth still makes a usable double, though access
to the berth is restricted on the port side. The rear dinette seat back is removable for access to the
rear berth from the starboard side.
