The Odin 820 ??

Just wondering what you Macgregor owners think of the new Odin boats.

Over the years I've owned the Mac 19, Mac 26x, and the Mac Ven 22 (just selling this one now). Unfortunately I have left the Macgregor Klan and have purchased a 2006 Hunter 27.

I was recently at the boat show in Toronto and got to check out the Odin Boat (not sure what size it was). One thing I did like was the storage. That was always my biggest complaint about the Macs I owned was storage never any room to put anything. 2000 lbs of balast wow ?

Just real curious what you all think ?

It looks like it would be a nice step up from the Mac.....could be on the pricey side though.

Thumbs up ODIN 28 is REALLLLLY NICE !!!!

I was out on an ODIN 28 last fall at night to view fireworks and was on the wheel for some time. It is a very solid feeling boat with great interior space. I was unnerved by the power from the 70 horse engine as I have never operated power boats (I have a 15 hp Honda on my Mac 26S & I thought that was powerful, but nothing like the ODIN) . They now have a diesel model that has 135 horses.

I did not get to sail on the ODIN (I hope to this summer) but a member of our club who is a very experienced sailor did so & rated it very high as a sailing vessel. I understand that they are coming out with a stripped down lower priced boat in the near future that could make it more accessible to more sailors. By using a 15 HP on it & foregoing the expensive trailer (e.g. storing it on a cradle at the boat yard), the price could be brought down significantly.
