First sail boat...

Hi folks,

I am looking at my first boat, completely new to sailing and am considering the the MacGregor 26 . Its appeal is the price and potential ease for a newbie to learn to sail on.

From trawling through the internet, I've noticed a consistent theme of how unsuitable it is to coastal waters. I plan to use the boat for my wife, small dog and I on weekend trips form Auckland here in NZ up around the Bay of Islands etc...

Be great to get thoughts on this, or possible other alternative boats around the 30ft mark...

Cheers
Matt
