MacGregor 25, 1981

  • with trailer,
  • Palm Harbor, FL
  • $2,995

  • LOA: 25'
  • Rig type: fractional sloop
  • Beam: 7.92'
  • Draft (max): 5'7", (min): 18"
  • Disp: 2100 lbs
  • Ballast: 625 lbs
  • Listed SA: 250 sq ft

    Great boat for sailing light winds and shallow areas due to retractable swing keel (new cable.) You can beach her, then push her off easily when you're ready to cast off.

  • Comfortably carries four adults & a couple kids, etc. Sleeps up to five adults.
  • Cabin has pop-up top to allow standing and great air circulation (forward hatch also).


  • New bimini ($500) (not shown in photo)
  • New heavy-duty motor mount ($500)
  • New mainsail cover
  • Mainsail & foresails in very good condition
  • Roller furling ($1500)
  • Stove & sink
  • Portapotty
  • New mast light
  • New rigging connections
  • Good cushions
  • New woodwork for top and side hatch (not shown in photo)
  • Swim ladder
  • Trailer (ready for the road)
  • & lots of extras like life jackets, bumpers, anchor & rode, etc.

    Have two outboards to offer, each for sale with or without boat -

  • 2014 9.8 Tohatsu 25" long shaft electric-start (brand-new, 2hrs of break-in running time on it, 5 yr warranty) $1950
  • 1997 6hp long shaft Mercury (just had $1000 of parts/service, runs great, starts easy!) $575 (20% discount, for either motor if bought with boat)

    We bought this boat on Craigslist, last fall, without motor, for $4000, then put another $1500 or so into it, only to discover that I don't have enough sailing time to justify $250/mo for a wet slip and, with my heart condition, I can no longer handle mast raising.

    I've done lots of work on this boat, and she's ready for you to enjoy sailing. What's left to be done? One of the bunkers (wood boards running length-wise on trailer) could be tightened down; last year's bottom paint is flaking off (they're made to do that), but the underlying hull paint is still good; I was going to redo the bow cleat, but didn't get around to it yet (but I did install two reinforced cleats just aft of the bow cleat, one on each side). MacGregors are noted for having cheaply backed cleats, so I like to redo with 1" sealed board backing.

    As far as sea-worthy - she's definitely ready to go sailing today. You could probably sail for a year before any maintenance issues arise.

    Please, no texts and no solicitations. Prices are already deeply slashed so are firm.
