That's kind of an oxymoron.... most sailboats aren't good under power.... just not done...

If you want a boat that can handle a 25HP outboard and still sail well, you might want to look at the Corsair F24 trimaran. With a 9.9 HP outboard it probably goes faster than hull speed for a boat its length. The sailing performance will be much better than that of a Macgregor 26.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I do not believe I am posting this........BUT............

If you look at the 07 Sail new boat and accessary rag on the newstands, there is a being brought over from Europe an equal to the MacGregor as far as power goes, not sure how the sailing part is........but it does fall into the same bracket!

WIth that, I need to go wash my mouth out with soap for posting this! Along with a self imposed keel haul!

Gig Harbor Boat Works - 15' Maine Lobster Boat

A little smaller than you asked for but 20mph top speed with a 15hp motor, plus rows and sails like a real boat, unlike just about anything else that will be posted here.

Tenuki-

A Corsair F24 will put a 15' Maine Lobster boat to shame and sails very well...

MacGregor makes a sailboat? I always wondered what that aluminum stick thing was for.
