MacGregor 25 swing keel, 1978

  • Double Axle Trailer and Mercury Motor

    READY TO SAIL IMMEDIATELY! I am only the third owner of this well-maintained boat. The most popular and successful trailerable sailboat ever made. Designed for comfort and fun, but has great power and maneuverability. (Was called the "Venture" just before this model, and MacGregor 25 herafter.) Stored on the dry with sails in climate-control its entire life. Retractable winch-controlled keel allows it to be easily trailered. Take your crew to any lake or ocean, but can be rigged, trailered and sailed single-handed. Swing-keel allows sailing in shallow areas and beaching. There are many resources, clubs and products for MacGregors, particulary the Mac 25. Don't be misled by boat ads that are not all-inclusive. (Many are docked boats with no trailer, etc.) Above price includes Boat, Trailer and Motor:


  • Length 24'11"
  • Beam 7'11"
  • 2100 lbs
  • Keel Down draft 5'0"
  • Keel Up 22"
  • Sleeps 5

    Items replaced in the last 6 years: keel winch, mahogany tiller, thick custom waterproof cushions, all new shrouds, all new lines (double-braided). Boat has minor chips and scratches that would be expected, but absolutely no structural problems or large cracks.

    Double-Axle Custom made trailer--Handles extremely well, even for novice. Has a mast-raising system that allows boat to be rigged single handed (on dry, not water). Also has detachable license plate holder with rear brake lights.

    Motor--like new 2004 5 hp Mercury, only fresh water, used less than 10 times

    Price also includes all equipment: Main and jib, all lines, four lifevests, poly-coated fluke anchor, anchor line, anchor chain, two boat fenders, two over-the-rail hook ladders, one flotation pad/seat cushion, clean Head and chemicals.

    This is a great boat for the beginner or veteran sailor, young or old, family or single. Solid foam flotation system makes it literally unsinkable and therefore very safe. Sailed in local lakes with my family of six and slept overnight with young children. Very fun!

    This boat is sold. I got 7 inquiries the first week! Have watched your website for years, and its outreach and selling power is truly amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
