The MacGregor 26 is one of the fastest and best handling of the trailerable cruising sailboats. It is easy to sail, and easy to trailer to your favorite sailing waters. You donít 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.
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.
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

NEW: MACGREGOR 70', ANTHEM, FOR SALE
Our MacGregor 70 ketch rigged ANTHEM, is now for sale for $250,000. The boat is owned by MacGregor Yacht Corporation. We are building a new one to replace it. It is in showroom condition.
Anthem is one of the fastest boats on the West Coast. In a recent Newport to Ensenada race (the 120 mile, 420 boat race from Newport Beach, California to Ensenada, Mexico), it was the first split rig to finish, beating many of the very best west coast racing machines, including Merlin, Ragtime and Santa Cruz 70s. Anthem was first to finish in the 125 mile Marina Del Rey to San Diego race.
Even with a PHRF rating of minus 42, the boats has done well on corrected time.
Unlike the big racing boats and custom speedsters, Anthem has a full, plush interior, a very comfortable cockpit, and can be sailed single handed.
Anthem was the second MacGregor 70 to be built. It will go 12 mph under power. The interior is similar to the MacGregor 65 (100 were built). These were the best selling large cruising and racing sailboats in the history of sailing. We have added a lot of speed by using the ketch rig and a longer waterline.
Anthem is similar in construction and concept to the MacGregor 65, but it is a lot faster and more dramatic.
Anthem great looking and extremely comfortable. This famous ketch is one of the most beautiful sailboats ever built, and is offered at a bargain price. FOR A LOT MORE INFORMATION AND PHOTOS OF ANTHEM, CLICK HERE
