Trailering - MacGregor 26M

trailering the mac

The boat is big, but it is really light, far lighter than competing trailerable cruisers. It is light enough to be towed behind standard sized cars. We consider that the weight of the 26, with all normal gear, is the maximum practical weight for easy ramp launching and trailering.

The 26 is just under 8 ft. wide, and can be legally trailered everywhere in the United States. Most of our competitors are over 8 ft. wide, and require permits for trailering in many states, including New York, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Illinois and Arizona. Many states also place severe restrictions on over width loads, including limitations on weekend travel. At best, getting a permit is a hassle, and no one needs another trip to the local department of motor vehicles. All states prohibit loads over 8 ft. 6 in. without a permit. It is best to check the laws of all states or countries in which you wish to travel. You may not get stopped if you are over width, but if you are involved in an accident, the lawyers will certainly be interested in the width of the trailer and boat.

Notice: The 26M is in production by MacGregor. The information contained on this page is subject to change, and may not fully represent the boat as it is manufactured. We will endeavor to update these pages as more information is released by MacGregor. If you would like to be notified when new materials are added to the site, send us an e-mail by click here.
