Review of the Macgregor 26X by mike taylor

Year built 2002  
Location of boat maryland  
The boat is sailed on Lakes  
How the boat is used Weekends and longer  
Normal wind strength 10-15 knots  
Average size of crew 6  
Liveaboard? No  
Owner bought the boat in 2002  
If the clock could be turned back, would owner buy again? Not the 26x. I didn't realise the poor sailing performance I would encounter.  
Gear that's been added no  
Structural or complex improvements no  
The boat's best features Space allocation for storage. Location of the head.  
Problem areas in terms of design, materials, maintenance, etc. ok so far  
Sailing characterisitcs Poor into the wind performance. Poor speed in any direction. Better balancing than the older classic I had.  
Motoring characterisitcs I initially had dealer problems with setting up the engine & prop..After that ok.  
Liveability excellant.  
The owner's experience in dealing with Hunter (if any) They do not respond...they expect the dealer to handle all problems. Problem is, dealer does not handle problems. That's one reason I was looking for a site like this.  
The owner's experience with the boat dealer or broker, if any Not a good experience.
