Big fast 65ft (20m) cruising boat. The Macgregor65 is a USA production boat with 100 boats been built and located in many countries in the world. Every current and past owners ive spoken with absolutely love there boat as i do also.
Macgregors are built well above US Coast Guard Standards and are actually one of the only keel boats in the world to have floatation foam throughout the boat built in.
The first Mac65 built the first owner and Mr Macgregor decided to enter it in some local races for some fun and they ended up cleaning up the fleet including the big race boats built in that era.
Although built to be a fast easy to sail cruising boat they excelled im many fields.
The Macgregor is designed long and narrow with a low overall weight and by doing so the mast and sail area is rather small for the boats size. What this formula creates is a fast easily driven hull with a smaller easy to manage sail area but speeds down wind with the spinnaker up can reach 25knots. Cruising speed is usually around 12 knots without pushing it and the boat performs better kept upright with less sail area rather than healed right over which makes everthing much more comfortable anyway. It slices through swell like butter and is quite dry in the cockpit due to its length. Overall maintenance cost are excellent for its size due to more affordable rig/sail/winch sizes that are needed.
While cruising its a one person job to furl out/in the mainsail and headsail which is mostly used but more hands are needed if your hoisting the spinnaker as the pole is long or a pully system can be easily rigged for a couple to deploy.
Interior is actually long and narrow but very open plan with 2 permanent double beds and 2 permanent single beds. The couches can sleep 2 more single guests or pipe berths can be added above the 2 single berths as well. All up a crew of 10 could potentially be bunked down at one time. In the head is a new toilet and it has a bathtub to shower in or to hang wet gear.
Recently i have been refurbishing the interior to put our boat on the market.
New items are:- New refrigeration unit, new stove (being fitted), new plumbing, new toilet, new cushions/mattress foam and covers, new drop leaf table (almost ready for install). New windows.
Engine is very easy to access and easy for parts as its a vw/audi LT diesel.
There are a few items still due for replacement like rigging wire but the price refects this and i felt its best for it to be done when new ownership takes place. There is nothing really wrong with the rig but its getting close to its 10 year age limit for insurance purposes. Due to a relatively small mast its actually not that expensive to change the rigging.
Boat is being sold As-Is Where-Is.
