Please sell me a Macgregor!

I am hoping to import a Macgregor 26M to Australia. I have contacted a couple of dealers by email but nobody seems interested in replying. I would be saving a substantial amount of money buy importing my own compared to buying here. My friends are also keen to do the same so we could be purchasing 3 or 4 in the next 12 months.

I have organised transport (ex L.A.), insurance, a broker, etc so all i need is for someone to sell me one.

I do have one question: Does the Mac 26 fit into a standard 40ft shipping container. I have read that it does, however, a shipping container is 2.35metres wide and the Mac's beam 2.36 metres. Is this correct? I would hate to buy one and then find out that it does not fit.

I know that the warranty would not be valid if i take a Mac out of the US. Any comments, ideas etc would be gratefully appreciated.

Cheers,
Chester

The factory specifically makes them so they can be shipped in the 40 ft container. I suggest you talk to them about direct sales and shipping.

Chester,

Why don't you check out this site: MacGregor Sailors Pages

One or more of the active posters is an Ausie and just completed the whole purchase & shipment process. There were a number of threads devoted to just that process.

I've tried to bite my tongue, but failed, may God forgive me.

A Mac 26? It's not a powerboat, and not a sailboat.

I'll stop now, I've said too much already...

I don't know what model the power sailer is Tom it just sits.. and sits.. year after year. The 26 I liked may have been a 25, but that was a sailing model, real low on the trailer, with centerboard up it looked real beachable and trailerable. Sorry, I didn't Mean to come off rude I'm sure there are lots of Odays4reefs too!

Yeah, my 25 sits low on the trailer and it doesnt have a certerboard but it has a swing keel. It is easily beachable just as long as the tide isnt going out soon!
