Come take a look today!

This MacGregor 65 is unlike any you’ve looked at previously.  Structurally she is amazing.  Her bottom, keel and rudder are far better than stock.  Her interior is different from any other – she has cabins both forward as well as aft.  She is faster, stronger and has a better interior layout than her sister-ships and when compared to the pilot house versions she shows a better interior layout, a more stable sailing platform and her structural improvements outshine any perceived advantage of the pilot house version.


Re-engineered in the late 90’s by Tom Wylie, this MacGregor 65 is worth upgrading and setting sail on.  She does need some general upgrades but with her structure, layout and amazing under-body she is a very deserving platform.
