News update!

Mac Gregor 26 sailboat / Marine Insurance Survey Ireland

Today's Boat Insurance Survey was in Lahinch. This is a small town on Liscannor Bay, on the northwest coast of County Clare, Ireland.

The MacGregor 26 Sailboat is a trailable sailing boat. It is also a water-ballasted trailer sailboat. This boat is 26 feet long and is not difficult to rig and sail. Its most attractive quality is not its ability to sail but its capacity to perform as a fast power cruiser. This sailboat is capable of cruising at 22 miles per hour!

Surveyors comments: Shes a bit like marmite. You either love or hate it! As the boat maker claims, the primary strength of this sailboat lies in its water ballast system. That is why its weight is relatively light, which makes it easy to tow on a trailer. There are apparently quite a few on the inland waters of Ireland. The very shallow draft makes her very suitable for large lakes and Loughs.
