1976 Macgregor Venture
Full DescriptionBoat is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Looking for an advanced, 22' freshwater Sailboat you don't have to always work on?
You won't find another sailboat in this class better equipped than this honey!
Built in 1976, upgraded to 2020 standards and ready to sail with impressive performance.
Ideal to "single hand" or load up the family for a great day on the water!
This boat has never seen salt water, thus you'll find zero corrosion anywhere.
Easily trailered behind a small car.
Rig it in just 15-20 minutes.
And the launch and recovery couldn't be smoother.
Among the long list of features is the "electric retracting keel" and the new "fuel injected 9.9hp Suzuki engine".
The most recent upgrade includes the 2020 retracting rudder by RudderCraft, custom fitted to this boat.
The detailed craftsmanship shows well through-out every aspect of this well equipped boat.
MacGregor utilizes lots of foam blocks through-out the inner hull spaces.
The boat can not sink and its impossible to capsize.
Very safe for teaching, general family sailing, and even racing.
The stronger hull allows it to be beached without any fear of knocking a hole in the hull.
Strong tough boat!
Trail-Rite custom built the single axle trailer for MacGregor, which is fitted with a spare tire & lock.
Oversized fender guard boat guides make it impossible to recover back onto the trailer incorrectly.
Draws only 12", meaning you don't dip the trailer into the water very deep for launch or recovery.
The engine is relatively new (2018).
Electric Start, Electric Tilt, Electronic Fuel Injection, Long Shaft, four stroke.
The engine is mounted on a heavy duty GARELICK, four position bracket.
Runs on straight auto gas.
The 3 gallon fuel tank is remotely mounted, not in the cockpit.
Engine is securely mounted with custom built "highway hauling" struts (does not move or bounce while trucking down the roadway; very firm and secure).
The engine is dreamy and perfectly sized for this boat.
These 22' class sailboats sell for $2,500 to $15,000, depending on how they are equipped and the time of year.
