MacGregor 26D, 1988

Description - Very good condition overall.

  • This boat is nearly 100% original. Michigan fresh water boat. Always stored on the trailer.


  • The hull is in good condition, very clean with only minor gel coat repairs made over the years. No soft spots or rot of any kind on the decks.
  • All the standing rigging, rails and lifelines are in very good condition.
  • The hatches all fit tight.
  • The windows have been tinted to get rid of the pink look.
  • Running rigging is in very good condition with many years left on the gear.
  • The main sheet is attached in the cockpit to a slide track.
  • The sail inventory includes the original main and a replacement jib.
  • This Mac also includes the original equipment spinnaker with the extra halyard up top, spar and whisker pole.
  • The spinnaker has some minor holes that need sail loft attention but nothing that a good cleaning and some stitches cannot solve.
  • The pop-top cover is in excellent condition and comes with a canvas storage bag to protect it from wear and tear.
  • The tiller is a brand new “B” style tiller from Rudder Craft.
  • Standard mast raising gear and a new oak mast crutch make raising the mast simple and fast.
  • The stainless steel swim ladder folds up.
  • A jack plate behind the motor well allows for a short shaft small outboard to be used for engine propulsion (no need for a long shaft motor).
  • Topping lift for the boom.


  • The interior of the boat is very clean.
  • The bench cushions show their age but have lots of life left in them.
  • The bunk cushions are in excellent condition for the age of the boat.
  • The original table has been replaced with a slightly larger table that is more functional than the original. No other modifications have been made to the interior.
  • New carpet covers the original floor which is in good condition underneath. Butane camping stove with extra gas bottles for cooking.


  • There are 4 life jackets and a horseshoe life ring go with this boat. There is also an anchor and several docking lines. Copy of the original owner’s manual.


  • The trailer is road trip ready.
  • This summer the boat was lifted from the trailer and put on stands to completely refurbish the trailer. The frame has had the old paint and any surface rust removed and painted with black Rustoleum oil base paint.
  • The tires are brand new Carlisle 215/75/14.
  • The bearing buddys are in very good shape as are the bearings and seals.
  • The wiring has been replaced with a new heavy gauge flat 4 harness. New side marker lights and bulbs in the tail lights.
  • All of the mounting hardware for the tongue jack and winch has been replaced along with a new heavy duty strap instead of the cable.
  • The bunk boards have been replaced as well as new carpet on the boards.
  • I have lots of pictures of this boat and it is ready for viewing in Jackson, Michigan.
