Re: Starter Boat on shallow water dock

Hi JRach,

you wrote you looked at the Mac25. I can highly recommend the Mac26S, having myself sailed one since 2010. She really does float in just over a foot of water with her swing keel up and can be beached. Enough space for a young family to stay for a weekend . Sails well (and faster than the later hybrid). Not the best boat but for a boat that's been out of production since 1995 a lot of boat for the money.

If you are considering newer boats, in Canada you can get TES 24. New one will set you back about $46-47,000 with everything you need (including trailer and outboard). She will float in 12 inches of water with the centreboard up and if there is really low tide, no harm will be done.
