Re: 65' MacGregor Sailboat

I sailed on one of these babies on a pre-delivery run and was stunned by the light air performance.
We had just cleared the Ballard Locks and cut the engine off so we were just drifting, no air to speak off but the delivery captain who was familiar with these boats says here we go and there is just a little ripple on the water and bang, with a little shrug we are on our way, amazing.
The pilothouse is even nicer although at first feels a little claustrophobic but given the amount of accommodation stuffed inside one gets over it when you think "what would I like to get rid of?"
Enjoy your cruising, get a premium surveyor at a good yard to check the vessel first and listen to them.
Take care, okinaneko
