The boat is a '78 Venture 25 (later named the MacGregor 25).
I bought this boat in March of '09 and I love it. There is a neighborly owners forum on the other sailboat site that is fantastic. If you are thinking of buying one of these boats, go for it. They are great, economical coastal sailors that don't cost an arm and a fin to store and maintain.

Nice little vids. The little Macs sail just fine. I've taken my little V-21 to Friday Harbor in 15-25 before. It was a spirited sail but lotsa fun.

We bought a 1993 26S last Summer...WE LOVE IT!!!!! Definetly get a roller furling, I never messed with one before, but since this boat has spoiled us with one we'll always have that nice option on any future boats.

I really can't complain about my V17. I guess they're like the Hyundais of the sailboat world. Not everyone can afford (or wants) a hand-built high-dollar Maybach. Lots of people put lots of miles every day on crappy Hyundai cars. Some people (myself included) think a used high-dollar high-end car is a bargain. I also think a $200 Hyundai would be a bargain.

Read my signature. Ugly, old, common production boats fit in there perfectly.
