MacGregor 26' "S" For Sale, in Yonkers, NY

Mid 1990s model 26 "S" MacGregor sailboat for sale. This is not the MacGregor model that can take a 50 HP motor and is a better sailor then the newer models that can take up to a 10 HP motor. I have seen this boat hit speeds over 6 knots under sail with a GPS and I have also sailed this boat on the Atlantic ocean on a calm day.

The boat comes with an 8 HP Evinrude 2 stroke motor and trailer and is ready to be sailed or taken away by trailer.

I have sailed on this boat and I like it for the niche it satisfies and I have helped to rig it in the past. Since it is water ballasted it is fairly light on a trailer and can be pulled by a Jeep. It also has lots of space down below and can sleep 6 adults if you don't mind not being able to stand up.
The boat, sails and trailer are all in good condition but the trailer needs some wiring done for the lights.
The asking price is now at $6500. Serious offers within 20% of the asking price will likely be entertained.
Prefer local buyer.
This is NOT MY BOAT but belongs to a friend who spends too much time at sea aboard big ships to enjoy it. I will post some pictures soon but I'll also answer any serious inquires through PM.
Disclaimer: I stand to make nothing if I finding a buyer. I'm only trying to help a friend find a prospective buyer for a boat he does not use much.

Caleb,
Ask you friend whether he'd consider donating his boat and trailer to Sea-Legs, Inc. Sea-Legs

I'm CEO and Founder of this not-for-profit entity. We provide on-the-water maritime experience and education to underpriviledged kids. And we've been at it since 1998.

Recently we were donated 5000 square feet of industrial space for our Apprentice Program, teaching our advanced sailors how to restore boats.

Boat donations serve us well because we actually use them with kids in our programs. Donors may claim Fair Market Value as the amount of their tax-deductible gift.
And it's a good cause.

Re: MacGregor 26' "S" For Sale, in Yonkers, NY

Our beloved Nauti Time just left for NJ yesterday. I really wasn't overjoyed about selling her but we need a bigger boat.

We had our best and most serious responses listing it on "Sailboatlistings.com", it wasn't all the BS we were getting off craigslist. It was more like 1 or 2 SERIOUS inquiries a week, not the usual "Hi, I am inerested in item and will pay more pesos than asking price if you give me all your financial onformation".

We took a bit of a hit on the price, I bought it for $7500 3 years ago, put a grand or more more into it on accessories and a new lower unit for the Nissan 8. With all the enjoyment and education we got out of it I guess the sold price of $6,250 wasn't terribly bad. I truley believe if we held out long enough we could have received the original asking price of $7,500 or even $7,000 but we are ready to move up. We understand the suck economy and we wanted to sell before getting another boat so I gritted my teeth and let her go. If a boat (Like a house) sits too long it's the wrong price, plain and simple...I need to keep that thought in MY head while we shop for our next boat.

BTW the buyer was VERY happy with the condition of the boat, my input, suggestions, instructions and the way I prepped it for travel. I even power washed the botton and gave her one last soapy bath...I miss her already.
