I wish they still made a 26 ft pure sailboat in the price range of the mac motor sailors. When I was new to sailing I looked at a new mac26 and liked it. but i only wanted to sail so it wasn't the perfect boat for me. I ended up buying an 80s used sailboat. But if i wanted an new sailboat could i find one in the price range of a mac and get the same size? I like my used sailboat and you can get a lot of boat for 20 to 30 the price of a new mac. I can understand why someone just getting into sail boating who wants a new boat but wants to spend less then 30 with standing head room would start at the new mac26. Maybe you can get a new 26ft sailboat for 30 or less i just don't know.
