Are you a "recreational" boater?
if so, I'd say the Macgregor 26X and above are truly nice recreational boats.
Nothing wrong with recreational boating.
In fact I venture to say 99% of the boaters(other than fishing), are for pleasure.
Since it's(boating), is generally for pleasure, one should do what pleasures one's self.
If your pleasure is more purist sailing, then the Mac26X is not for you.
BUT, if you like a boat that will get you there, make you comfortable and even let you dabble in some pleasurable sailing, the Mac would definately fit the bill.
I have a Venture 25 and a Perason 26. Each has something I like, each has something I don't like.
I really like the Mac26, but I prefer the more stable Pearson.
