ID This Swing Keel Boat

Hey guys,

I am looking at buying a small sailboat with a swing or retractable keel, that I can trailer to eliminate moorage costs (I am 17) and I have found this little 26 footer that seems like a nice little boat so far, and the price is nice!

Anyways, I have contacted the owner about getting more photos, and I will soon, but this is all I have for now. I was wondering if you could identify who makes this boat? And if you could tell me more about it?

Thanks!

Re: Need help identifying this swing keel boat

Welcome to CF. A good first question

Which I can't help with but might help others if you identified the country you / the boat is in........

Although hard to tell from the photos, I would be surprised if she was 26 Foot - might want to take a tape measure when you view (miss-described lengths and boat models not uncommon).

For a first boat (and low budget) she looks the ticket

Might be a European version of Catalina. I think it might be a Capri.

Re: Need help identifying this swing keel boat

Looks like an old Venture 25 (aka:MacGregor 25) with custom side ports (windows). the pictures aren't quite clear, so there is also a possibilty that this is a TRADEWINDS 26 built by Luger (a company in Minnesota that used to produce kitboats to be finished off by the owner). Anyway, I'd be 100% certain that she is either a Venture/Macgregor 25 or a Tradewinds 26.

Re: Need help identifying this swing keel boat

What, no ID tag on it? It should have one, or the previous owner should have it on the title?

I'd be almost 99% certain that the mystery boat is in fact a LUGER Tradewinds 26!

I've included brochure pages for both the V25 (aka Macregor 25) and the Tradewinds 26 below. I really don't know why I didn't think of doing that last night!
