Much enjoyed and thoroughly lovingly cared for Macgregor 26M powersailer with professionally polished blue hull. Powered by Evinrude ETEC 50hp fuel efficient outboard engine w/power tilt. Fully equipped for sailing/motoring including trailer with brakes that dont require wiring a brake controller inside your tow vehicle. Upgraded hardware and numerous accessories to add comfort, reliability, safety and sail-ability. For example,all lines aft (to cockpit), Garhauer piston boom vang (eliminates topping lift!), CDI jib furler, set of matching blue canvas covers, and complete cushion set.

We are owners who believe in preventative maintenance. We have invested over twice the selling price in upgraded equipment, accessories, and upgrading the complete steering system and rudders. The boat and trailer come with a very complete set of Operating Manuals, documentation organized in an onboard notebook, receipts and file folders. Clean title, no liens.

The boat has never sailed anywhere else than freshwater Lake Tahoe and always cleaned and stored out of the water at the end of the summer. As sad as it makes us its ready for a new crew to pick it up south of Carson City, Nevada about 25 minutes from Lake Tahoe.

• OEM Macgregor 26M Owner’s Manual w/rigging, trailering, maintenance instructions, etc.
• OEM Evinrude 50hp ETEC Owner’s Manual
