There are several MacGregor

. One was lost
when the owner tried to sail it before filling the water
ballast and she broached, filled with water
and settled upright but still floating at "deck" level. I think the Hunter needs the same caution about sailng mode vs. powerboat mode.
I never sailed thwe MacGregor
but sailed against them in many races. Bottom line is the Mac 26 sails
like a pig. Apologies to any M26 owners...
If you must have a powerboat and a sailboat it may be the choice for some. If you want a great powerboat or a great sailboat then these "hybrids" in my mind don't fit either bill very well. My opnion and yours may be different.
There is one family
who gets out a lot and enjoy their boat very much.
Here is a thread I found with a discussion of these boats.
