With the water ballast tanks empty the fiberglass boat is light and can cruise under power to around 20-24 mph.
Enough to pull a waterskier.
With the ballast tank full, sails out the boat handles nicely under wind power.
The fiberglass hull is filled with foam, during the marketing of the boat MacGregor drilled a hole in the boat in an attempt to sink it, due to the foam in the boat the boat wouldnt sink any further than the gunnels, making it a slow return to shore, but rest-assured the boat would not sink.
The fiberglass hull is light and with a now aluminum trailer the total weight of the boat and trailer is around 3000lbs.
To mention MacGregor marketing, they have a picture in the original catalog of a Ford Taurus trailering the boat.
Currently located in Bellville, Texas.
