Sitting on the hard in Red Bay, South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario is my white hulled 2010 MacGregor 26M, formerly named “Havenfboat”.
She sits on her very low mileage aluminum MacGregor built trailer with a 2” ball and disc brakes.
This 26ft daggerboard keel equipped, dual rudder motor sailing model has only ever been sailed in freshwater Georgian Bay out of Lion’s Head and Wiarton. For sailing, it comes with a single-handed mast raising system to raise either the Doyle jib (never used), UK 135 Genoa, Doyle 150 Genoa on a CD-1 Furler with UV protection, or the Doyle mainsail which can be stored on the boom in its black Genco mainsail cover. All sails are in good condition.
For motoring, the 2010 BRP Evinrude 60hp E-Tec with less than 50 hours on can put the boat on plane at up to 19kn, well above the 6.45kn boat hull speed.
The prop has no damage from the deep Georgian Bay, thanks to the steering pedestal instrumentation that includes a Raymarine A50D plotter/fish finder, SmartPilot Tridata Autohelm, and the built-in compass and tilt gauge clinometer. For the relaxing times, a grey canvas full cockpit enclosure customized by Dowsar Marine in 2017 includes zippered doorway accesses with screened panels – even in the motor well. Enclosure includes the dodger, Bimini, rear windows, mid connector top and windows.
Open a side for the rail mounted propane BBQ that is brand new.
Some minor cabin mods include clear plexiglass table cover, waterproof flooring, solar cabin vent fan, and smoked plexiglass access hatchway. There is a Porta Potti found in the head. Peace of mind accessories include a Bruce and Danforth anchor, Garhauer rope vang 30-US, and a storm drogue that does need some repair from mice! Just as the trailer comes with a spare tire, this boat comes with a new spare rudder blade, a new spare daggerboard, and a spare marine gas tank. I’ll include a transom backup motor mount you can install for your spare kicker motor for the boat or your dinghy.
Havenfboat has been covered every winter either under blue shrink wrap, or under tarpped enclosures that has helped her stay unblemished in fibreglass. At some point in the next year, she’d look better with a re-coat of anti-fouling paint, either the same black or give her a bold change with colour! She’ll also need her raccoon mask waxed again for that fresh look.
Enjoy sailing or motoring without the worry of getting a permanent slip.
