Broker's Comments

The MacGregor 26X is an innovative design from the well-known US builder and whilst there are certainly higher performing sailboats (and speedier powerboats) what they have done well is combine the potential for a very wide range of fun boating experiences into a single vessel.

This particular example has benefitted from being owned by an engineer who has taken a fairly basic boat and upgraded her really well. Her interior as well as being spacious and airy as is the standard, is smart looking and versatile enough to work for the wide ranging uses she's designed for

She's been well looked after, only afloat for the summer and ashore on her own trailer at the same yard each winter and that care shows in the way she is presented.

MacGregor Yachts describe the 26X as 'a small boat specialising in happiness!' What could be more fun than that?
