The Macgregor 26 M is the final version of these ever-popular trailer sailers, offering a useful combination of sailing, high-speed motoring (can pull a skier), spacious open-plan accommodation, and built-in buoyancy for added safety. A water ballast system allows for good sailing ability for their type but keeps the trailing weight low, making them easily towed behind most family saloons if desired, they are a truly versatile and economical family boat!
