The MacGregor 26X was a hugely successful trailer/sailer with over 5,000 built. Designed to be an economical boat to own and maintain, they are easy to sail, fun to motor and straightforward to trail behind a car. All this with a comfortable and spacious interior layout. This excellent one-owner example is only for sale due to the owner's advancing years and is in amazing condition for her age. Lightly used since new, and only for day-sailing, she is probably the best example we've seen Viewing by appointment through our Suffolk Office - Click here to reveal phone number - Accommodation

The owners bought the boat new in 1997 and have only day-sailed her since - they have never slept aboard! She has been winterised every year in a barn and been unused for half its life. Pampered, polished and lovingly cared for and completely unused for the last two years, she is in a condition that belies her age.
