2001 Macgregor 26X

Southampton, New York, United States
$19,950 USD
Condition: Good

2001 Macgregor 26X. We have loved having this boat for the last 12 years but we are moving and sadly, cannot take it with us. It has been well maintained and is in very good condition. Boat has a 2017, EVINRUDE 60 Hp, High Output ( HO), 3 cylinder, E-TEC motor with the extended shaft. Motor has 5 years left on a 10 year, transferable warranty. It also has less than 50 hours use. Complete with new throttle and power cables. Full cockpit and interior cushions all in very good to like new condition. Interior hardly used. Head is equipped with Built-in Pump Out System with starboard port. Has working sink, mirror on door and overhead light. Rear, Queen size birth has reading light. All interior cushions and mattress pads in excellent condition. Galley has working sink, and never used, alcohol stove and cutting board. Dining table has plexiglass cover for marine map. Equipped with dual 650 amp batteries and selector switch. Fused electrical panel switches can be reached from cockpit. VHF radio, DC socket and shore power switch. Interior equipped with two, double outlets for shore power. Shore power connection outlet on port side. Comes with shore power cable. All windows come with fitted Blue and White, Accordion shades, including head. Cockpit has port side compass, and steering pedestal equipped with multifunctional, LCD monitor, analog tachometer and battery gauge. There are many extras as you will see in pictures. Exterior has always been maintained. It has acquired a few scratches and minor dings over the years but theyve always been repaired with gelcoat. None have ever been deep enough to hit fiberglass. Both rudders have had cracks just in the spot where they hit the rope eye but have temporary repairs that have lasted more than 2 years now. Main sail is in very good condition and mast has Windex. Jib is on a CDI Roller Furler. Jib complete with sewn on UV protector. Two minor tears at the points where UV cover meets sail and can be easily stitched back to rights. Currently using sail tape. Mast Raising system included. and is a tremendous benefit..

Equipment: Bimini with cover, Dodger, Mainsail Cover, pedestal cover and Lifesling cover all Sunbrella Jockey Red and in very good to like new condition. Two 9 gallon gas tanks. All lines and sheets set aft for single person sailing. Heavy duty 7 , Zinc coated, Double Axle Trailer Boat has always been covered when out in water. Please excuse some of the mess in pictures but I tried to show the cushions, and the extras. Also, pictures were taken at the time we were cleaning it and getting ready for Winter Storage. Boat is ready for pickup and taken to its new home. Please feel to email me to request additional pictures

Hull Speed
10.0 kn
Classic: 6.43 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.


Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

10.04 knots
Classic formula: 6.43 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
>20: high performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.


SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
>40: stiffer, more powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.


Ballast / Displacement * 100

<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
<100: Ultralight

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.


D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
<20: lightweight racing boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.


Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.


CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising


As sail/power ‘hybrids’, both the M and X models are designed for use with a more than ‘auxilary’ sized outboard and water ballast.
The MACGREGOR 26M replaced the MACGREGOR 26X in 2003.
A similar version later reintroduced from another builder as the TATTOO 26 (2013).
