Let's Get to Know Each Other

Let's connect, macgregor 22 sailboat.

The Macgregor 22 is a small recreational sailboat that was designed by Roger Macgregor. It was built by Macgregor Yacht Corp. (USA) in 1967. The boatyard manufactured tons of Macgregor 22 units. However, the production came to a halt in 1975.

This sailboat offers impeccable sailing performance in moderate weather conditions. It possesses a positive floatation that keeps it afloat when swamped with waves; this is an excellent safety feature and ensures that emergencies are tackled efficiently. As a small-sized yacht, it is propelled by a relatively powerful auxiliary motor. It weighs 1,800 lb. and carries a steel ballast of 500 lb. It has a mainsail area of 177 sq. ft. and a mast height of 28 ft. This 22-footer sailing boat is designed with a Bermuda rig with a foretriangle height of 24.67 ft., a foretriangle base of 9.083 ft., a mainsail luff of 21.83 ft., and a mainsail foot of 9.75 ft. This design has a length overall (LOA) of 22.00 ft. The waterline length (LWL) is 19.50 ft. The interior is made predominantly of fiberglass and wood trims. It has a cabin area that has enough space to accommodate a crew of four passengers. It is equipped with a modest dinette and settee.

MacGregor 22 vs. Catalina 22

  • Add to quote

We''re looking for our first weekend lake sailer and have narrowed it down to an ''84 MacGregor 22 or an ''84 Catalina 22, both well-maintained. The MacGregor is much lighter--1800 lbs. vs. 2490 lbs, so easier to trailer and launch (draws only 6" with swingkeel up) but has built-in flotation--which does take away from interior space. We like the interior of the Catalina but it has no flotation and we''re wondering how it would sail in the light winds we get around here during summer (due to heavier weight), though Catalinas do seem to be very popular in this area. The Catalina would cost about $2,000 more but does have roller furling, a newer outboard, depth sounder, propane stove, sink, upgraded trailer, bimini, etc. and seems to have a higher base value--though it''s hard to find many MacGregors around of that era, most people don''t even realize there are steel-ballasted ones out there. The MacGregor has a lighted compass and knot meter (which the Catalina doesn''t have)and shade awning that can only be used while anchored. It has no stove and the slideout sink arrangement seems awkward and (though included) has been removed by the current owner since it seems to get in the way. Both boats have porta-potties and swim ladders. The MacGregor has a genoa, 110 jib and storm sail (which take up alot of room inside), while the Catalina only has the 110 jib on the roller-furling. We would like decent performance but have a preschooler and are also concerned about safety and both my wife and I not having to both pay constant attention to the helm and sails. We''d mostly keep it docked at a local lake but would like to trailer it once or twice a year to Lake Erie, Kentucky Lake or somewhere else for a family trip. The Catalina is already docked at the lake we''d be using, and its owner will be continuing as a member of that sailing club, while the MacGregor is about 140 miles away on a trailer and was mostly sailed in Lake Erie till 2 yrs ago. Any advice or recommendations are welcome. Thanks!  

The Catalina is an ''87, not an ''84.  

Either the C22 or the Mac22 will be easy to tow, set up and launch. My first small cruiser was a C22, and I once towed it to Michigan and back from southern Ohio with an old 6 cylinder Rambler. Compare the weight and workmanship of the two boats and their hardware, and you will find the C22 to be stronger and somewhat better built. The Catalina''s small jib will give you decent performance on a light-air inland lake, but I would suggest you negotiate with the seller for a price reduction of a few hundred dollars to help you buy a 130% or 150% jib. The 110% jib is o.k., but a larger jib will help in light air. In 25 years of sailing, I have never known of either a C22 or a Mac22 that sank, although I''m sure it must have happened somewhere. Most small cruising boats don''t have flotation, because it occupies too much interior space that could be used for storage and other purposes, and because, in my opinion, it just isn''t crucial to safety if the occupants have pfd''s. Those boats are designed to be sailed in more protected waters, where you are close to shore at all times. There is a MacGregor website, but it seems to be relatively inactive and of very limited usefulness to owners. There is also a Catalina 22 website, and it is extremely active, and loaded with thoughtful suggestions for repairs and upgrades, and information about where to obtain parts and supplies. Most people buy a smaller boat at first, and after a year or two they move up to a bigger boat. So, regardless of which boat you buy, be careful that you don''t pay more than the current market value for it in your area, so you won''t take too much of a loss if you decide to move up. The sailing club at my lake (Brookville Lake in southern Indiana) is very sociable, and organizes lots of family picnics, raft-ups, racing, winter banquets and other events, and the membership cost is really nominal. You will get much more out of sailing if you join your local club.  

the Macgregor was built in Costa Mesa CA the Catalina was built in either the old Morgan plant in FLa or Woodland Hills CA. For day sailing both are fine boats but there are many diferences in the boats. Macgregor is lighter due to thin glass in the hull where the C22 has much more glass this is one of the reasons for the extra flotation in the Macgregor. the Catalina has more weight in the kell this means it will not heel as quick as the Macgregor but in light breezes the Macgregor will be quiker, it all comes down to what do you like if well maintained they are both good boats. I have sailed both and am a present C27 owner and have sailed both many times on Newport Harbor I will admit I lke the feel of teh catlina more but this is up to you. I would sugest reying both find out what you like. I do not know if Macgregor still builds the 22 but catalina has one of the best support systems of any manufacturer out there this could save on $$ and frustration. What ever you decide best of luck and enjoy.

Personally, I'd go with the Catalina... the roller furling makes using the genoa much simpler, especially if sailing short-handed. It is also quite likely to be the much better performing boat over a wide range of conditions. And finally, the larger interior is more toddler friendly IMHO. Finally, getting advice from the PO is going to be much simpler, since he's local to you.

And I'm reading it more than five years later than that, and finding it helpful. When someone describes their experience with a boat, the real life experience remains valid and helpful virtually forever. Writing in a forum should be looked at as writing in an encyclopedia. The original poster becomes irrelevant. If you wish to imagine you are only addressing the OP instead of the cyber universe for all time, then I believe you should only send private messages back and forth. This is one of the most helpful sites I've found, filled with courteous, intelligent, insightful and highly experienced writers. I joined when I realized that time after time I ended up here when searching. I found that I began to choose this site first, because the info was superior. I'm surprised however at how many "date Police" are playing "gotcha". I think when forums were new people didn't realize how a search would turn up every word written. I think it's time to stop discouraging people from adding to older threads, it's actually helpful when they do to keep the knowledge organized instead of scattered all over. Disorganized libraries are almost useless. That's my 3 cents - inflation.  

damn.... guilty as charged... didn't check the dates.... but haven't had my coffee yet this morning. LOL Taking a mental health day for the weather I see.  

So far, may head out late this afternoon, depending on weather, and if I can get some sleep during the day. Could make Port Everglades sailing if the wind holds as predicted, by tomorrow afternoon. Then I won't have to deal with Miami.

PB...save the offshore for tomorrow! What's wrong with Miami?? Anchor off Coconuut Grove and enjoy the scene then go out the cut and up to Lauderdale on an easy sail.

Are you guys writing these posts from your boats? If so how are you getting internet?  

I am. I'm using Verizon Wireless through a PMICA card. Currently at Indian Key, Florida  

macgregor sailboat 22

Where are you PB? If you are close to Sanibel, go up the ICW and stop off at Cabbage Key. Have a $10 burger, a $5 corona, a lot of bug spray and a good time. Put a dollar on the wall up by Buffett. You are a mobile tourist... now act like one!! (smile). Hope you are doing well. - CD  

CD - I'm presently at Indian Key, between Lower and Upper Matecumbe Keys, on the ocean side (Hawk Channel). Inside route seems like it's meant for powerboats, not sailboats. Some really skinny water in there. I'm not doing the touristy thing on this leg. I'll be back down here this winter and do it then. Right now, I just want to head north before Hurricane season starts. Currently at Indian Key, Florida  

Hurricane season? In Florida? Did not know there was such a thing! You sure? - CD  

Lemme know when you get close so I can put her in gear!! (G)  

Cat.-22 vs. Mac. 22 To most people the Cat.22 seems better finished off. But if you look close, and take some time, you will see the rigging on the Mac. 22 is much better. The side shrouds have chain plates(bolted to the hull), where the Cat 22 has them bolted to the deck? Yes they have doubles, but not as strong. I have fixed to many Cat. 22`s in my life! Also, there are 4 very small bolts that hold the keel on(you better be seeing they are tight!) Don`t care much for that(much to light weight for me), but the Cat. 25 is worst. Also, the Mac 22 sails better, and tows much better(take much less time to put up, and down at the lake.) It sits much lower in the trailer! Much easier to get in, and out when on the trailer. The wife will like the Cat 22 better? It is better looking. It does have a bigger V-berth(but you have to move the port-o-potty) I think the Mac 22 is also safer. I have had a few of each. Happy Sailing, Capt. Tony P. S. The M ac will not sink!(there is a Cat. 22 at the bottom of our lake, that sank on it`s very first sail) Got hit by a blast of wind with the pop-top up(owner not that smart). I often wondered if they had good insurance on a bran-new boat?

am also looking for a trail able boat.. have to in mind the catalina 22 or the macgregor 26. lol 2002 post.  

There are other realy good options that may be cost worthy as well like an O'day or Santana. Santana's are built by W.D Shock another Orange county boat manufacture and I for got where they built O'days but having sailed all 4 boats it realy depends on what you would like.  

I find these discussions very interesting - BUT - the people almost never come back to say " I bought this" " Like it for this reason" "Did or did not work" Have moved on to _____" etc... even more important in such an old thread that still comes up in a present day search!

macgregor venture 22 ? for learning sailing couple

sail boat needs :smaller the better 18' to 23' shallow water 3to 4ft at pier most time can blow out 1 to2 ft deep . cabin over night for 2 people 2 dogs, swing keel , stable , easy to sail and learn on, sea worthy the sound gets bad in little time . Macgregor venture 22 came up as candidate any other i should look for . found 1979 venture 22 what to look for good and bad on this model any weak areas of concern  

I think your on the right track, but you do have a lot of choices. Besides the Mac there is Catalina, Siren, San Juan, Chrysler, Hunter....man the list goes on. The Catalina is a very stable one (heavier keel), very well built and there was a lot of them made that's why there are a lot of used ones out there. I could tell you all the differences but the reason I went with the Macgregor 22 was because of the trailering weight and the big price difference. Other sailing sites will bad mouth the Mac because of the thinner hull but I have been very impressed in the 3 years I've been owned mine. I had never sailed before and my wife had never even stepped on a boat and it has been very forgiving but my advise is still practice safety, watch the weather and read some of these posts....even from the newbies cause they will point out common mistakes. We go out almost every weekend in the summer and have never day sailed, we always spend a night or two and has been plenty of room for us although were now ready for a 25 or 27.  

Btw areas of concern with that model is no different then with any other swing keel sailer. Keel condition, soft deck spots, sound hull, standing rigging, sails (cause their expensive), no leaks from top... overall alot of the stuff is repairable, but some things like sails are expensive. You may want to find one in turnkey condition if your not a "handy" kind of person. And another thing the hull is alot tougher then alot of people think. Because of our stupidity we lost anchor hold in a bad storm in the middle of the night once and spent 8 hours banging against the rocky shore with no damage. Was caught in a sudden tornado that came within 1/4 mile from us and no time to get to shore (were in Oklahoma) and have sailed sailed in 25 mph sustained winds with gust to 35...(not advised) and the only thing we worried about was getting demasted. Yes, were not on the coast but short choppy 2 foot waves coming from wind and yacht wakes from all different directions is scary as hell! I do know the difference I lived in Baltimore for 10 years and sailed the Chesapeake with friends. The point I am making is the Mac (Venture) is tougher then what alot of people think. My advise to you is do your homework. Good luck and hopefully you will find the one that fits you and your wife...and your dogs of course!  

topcat0399

A Venture/Mac is probably right up your alley. Big ticket= motor/sails/old trailers. Old Macs are known to leak topside in various places. Nothing a little effort can't fix. Make sure you understand how to check the condition of a boat - learn what a core is and how to check one. Some things are a PIA to fix. Know the value of things before offering up. Before you know it you'll be hooked...  

Sumner

thanks for responses haven't seen the boat yet elderly man bought the 22 venture said its late 70 early 80 model . w/trailer, cabin raises. was kept under roof until he got it 2years ago said its in sailing condition just need cleaned. he never took it out too much work to set up by him self. when snow clears we will see boat how do you check swing keels condition its on trailer. also check the hull whats best way to and what am I looking for I know basic ,the keel and hull core are the areas i need advise price of boat is 1,000.00  

A core is a filling between two layers of fiberglass that should be fully stuck. On a boat such as that Venture they are likely 3/8 plywood in most places. If water gets into a core it can rot it out causing soft spots on the decks or worse. For us it was worse. Walk they decks and topsides everywhere watching for spots that sink. You can get a good idea of a core condition such as these using the butt end (handle) of a screw driver as a tapper. Everywhere there is a core you tap tap tap tap all over the core listening. A good core has a thack thack thack sound. A wet core goes "thunk". You can't miss it. Its best to tap both above and below the entire core if possible. A wet core isn't always the end of the world - it depends on where it is what it does that matters. A soft spot in a foredeck might be lived with but a wet core under a mast step or in a cockpit floor should probably be attended to. That boat likely has cores in these places: Foredeck, both side decks, cockpit seats, cabin top under mast, cockpit floor, under hatch covers. We ended up replacing almost every core on our boat thanks to the failed silicon previous owners used to seal things and our ignorance concerning such things upon purchase. We also ended up with rags for sails that we still haven't replaced. Don't get me wrong - we love our shabby little boat but don't be fooled by a nice coat of house paint when writing the check. I will leave the keel part to someone with more knowledge on the subject. Good luck.  

thanks top cat your talking about top decks and lower decks ? how about the hull is it core or solid  

mark west said: thanks top cat your talking about top decks and lower decks ? how about the hull is it core or solid Click to expand

Mark if it all appears to be there, especially the sails (not ripped up) you will probably be alright. Basically the advise these guys are giving is to make sure it's not rotted from the inside out. Also make sure there are no BIG cracks in the fiberglass anywhere especially around the mast step (where your mast connects to cabin top). You will probably see some small spider cracks but thats not a killer. With the keel that kind of takes an experienced eye on how the bolt connects, but at least look up underneath there and make sure that the keel is not totally rotted out, like huge pits. The good thing with a few bucks, elbow grease and knowledge you learn here online you can bring an ugly old boat back to life and be proud of it and the improvements you made. My boat was litterally black when I got it. Take someone with you thats familiar with sailboats and don't be afraid to negotiate with the fellow since you will probably have to spend around $600-800 for a descent used outboard. I don't kn  

I don't know about the market there, but if it's all there and just needs some TLC as they say, it sounds like a fair deal. Are all the cabin cushions intact? Does it have the pretty rosey red windows?  

Sock Puppet

How big are your dogs? This may seem like a small thing, but it's not. While I really, really liked my Mac 22 it got small pretty fast. I'm in a different place with two kids, but two dogs can take up a lot of space as well. in my mind the 22 is a prettier boat than the 26, and it may have had a slight edge in "feel" while sailing, but I wouldn't go back after having the 26. With that said, I sold it to a couple who wanted it for their first boat and I've heard from them since that they are more than happy with it. My advice is to not get in a hurry. You'll probably know the right boat when you find it. $1000 more on the asking price is really insignificant once you have an idea of what costs/improvements can run. If you're able, it's better to buy one that's closer to being done than not. Little things like cockpit cushions can cost way more than you think. Absolutely go look at a 26S before buying a Mac 22 or 25. Seriously. They are nice boats, but the 26 has an interior layout that you may find worth the added cost.  

thanks all of you for advice will net you know more when i can see boat .owners 83 and cant go to were boat is stored in this weather .

Excellent Daysailer. I learned to sail solo on Lake George with this boat. Handles like a dream. I've slept on it a number of time. The ads will say it sleeps four. I'd say two adults and two small children. The hull has been scraped, but not painted. I kept it on the trailer when I wasn't using it. So, I didn't need to paint it. I've replaced all the wiring, the stern light, the winch strap for the trailer, and the cable for the swing keel. The cushions have all been recovered with vinyl. Last July, I had the plugs, points, head gasket replaced, and the carb rebuilt on the motor. It's old. But, if you let it warm up for a few minutes, it will run all day. Boat comes with: --main and jib sails-- like new sheets, halyards, dock and anchor lines (bought at the beginning of last season).--'67 Envinrude 9.5 hp 2 cycle motor w/ long shaft (runs well)--5 gal. fuel tank--two life jackets--3 step hook ladder--trailer is included in sale (2" ball required) The usual info:Hull: monohull w/ swing keelRig: masthead sloopLOA: 22'LWL:18'Beam: 7.33'Draft: 1' (keel up)/ 6' (keel down)Displacement 1800lbs.

2010 Macgregor 26M The Macgregor 26M is a trailerable coastal cruiser, powerboat, ski boat, party barge and floating home all wrapped into one hull. The obvious design compromises in a motorboat-sailboat hybrid have made many owners smile. The Macgregor 26 is a hybrid appealing primarily to trailersailors strapped for time and concerned about the rising cost of slip and mooring fees. At 26 feet it is simple to rig and sail, and just as easy to transport. Instead of chugging with the diesel at 4 knots, the Macgregor 26M speeds along at 22 mph. The boat was also able to explore quiet coves or nestle onto sandy beaches because its twin rudders and daggerboard that require only 12 inches water when retracted. This Macgregor 26M is a ONE OWNER BOAT. She was purchase NEW from the Factory in June of 2010. The boat is currently under the winter cover at the sellers home and is in need of a very good detailing. She is equipped with a lot of extra gear.

The MacGregor 26S MacGregor 26 Swing Keel Sailboat 1994 with Trailer in Excellent Condition ready to Sail! This is a 1994 MacGregor 26S Sailboat with trailer and 8 hp outboard motor in excellent condition. It accepts a 2 inch ball mount trailer hitch. The total trailer weight is about 2000 lbs, so pretty much any V-6 vehicle can tow this without any extra equipment. Any Minivan for example will work fine. It includes everything needed to sail. Three sails including a main, a roller furling Genoa and a drifter / spinnaker are included . This sailboat is wheel steered with binnacle mounted motor remote controls and instruments. Everything is in excellent condition and the trailer tires are brand new Goodyear Marathon trailer tires. It also has an extra motor mount for a trolling motor or small outboard secondary engine. This boat has many upgrades including wheel steering and a Rudder Craft Mac 26S HDPE High Performance Replacement Rudder as well as the stock rudder as a spare, a MMSD pump out porta toilet, a CDI roller furling Genoa and a main sail cover as well as life lines and bow and stern pulpits, a swim ladder, a solar panel and an Autohelm ST 30 Bidata to name a few. The 8 HP Tohatsu (Nissan) outboard model M8B also has electric start and an alternator. The MacGregor 26S, 1990 to 1995, replaced the dagger board with a swing centerboard (which kicks up in an accidental grounding) and made other smaller changes. Together, the 26D and 26S are often called the "classic" MacGregor 26, and sometimes the 26C. Owners of these earlier models tend to refer to them as "the real sailboats" prior to the changes coming with the MacGregor 26X. The V-berth can handle 2 people/kids and has storage underneath, the settee can accommodate another person and plenty more storage under there, in the cabin galley /kitchen area is a sink and a mirrored bulkhead with plenty of storage under the sink. Behind the ladder going into the cockpit is a queen sized, super comfortable bed which is also located right below the cockpit. This boat has a POP-UP roof over the galley area that rotates up and out of the way while boat is at anchor / berth which gives unlimited head room in the cabin. This vessel includes all tools and supplies needed for maintenance and use like a nice Windex for mast top mounting. a manual bilge pump, an anchor with rode, a new gallon of bottom paint, a new fuel tank with hose, a remote controlled stereo, cockpit cushions, a wind scoop etc. I am the third owner of this nice Mac and all paperwork including the Wisconsin Title and the original purchase contract when new are included as well as a IL trailer title from the previous owner. (Note, a few pictures are from the previous owner in IL and we do not have trailer titles in WI.) It is located in Door County, WI in the city of Egg Harbor, WI north of Green Bay at my summer cottage while I live in Milwaukee, WI. If you have any questions please do ask as all inquiries will be responded to. Thanks for your interest.

At the time it was the only sailboat that met my budgetary needs, had room enough for my family of three to cruise for up to a week at a time, and trailered well to let us explore waters from Maine to Key West. Yes, it's a light boat, but I had a lot of sailing experience and was cautious and never had trouble in winds to 30 knots - and I didn't try anything foolish like taking it offshore. Yes, the fiberglass was thin, but I avoided running into rocks. I took my 3-year-old out on solo daysails and have no regrets. I sold it to a family of four, their first boat, and heard from them a few years later that they'd thoroughly enjoyed tons of sailing. Thousands of other MacGregor owners have had similar experiences."

Venture 222

Venture 222 is a 22 ′ 0 ″ / 6.7 m monohull sailboat designed by Roger MacGregor and built by Macgregor Yacht Corp between 1971 and 1982.

Drawing of Venture 222

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

Besides certain hardware, hatch types, and small rig differences, the VENTURE 22, VENTURE 222, and MACGREGOR 22 are similar. Thanks to a number of Venture/Mac owners for providing updated information. Thanks also to Sam Tricky for providing a number of corrections.

HOT NEWS from Roger MacGregor :

AFTER BUILDING 40,000 MACGREGOR SAILBOATS, ITS RETIREMENT TIME.  (Sort of) .

It has dawned on the MacGregors that we are suddenly way beyond retirement age, beyond geezerhood, and it’s time to start a new career. We have recently ended production of the MacGregor sailboats at our Costa Mesa, California plant, and are continuing to develop our all new MacGregor 70. We have converted our 5 acre production site to 11 industrial rental units. We are now big time landlords.

EVERY YEAR, FOR THE PAST 40 YEARS , THE VARIOUS MODELS OF THE MACGREGOR 25 AND MACGREGOR 26 HAVE BEEN THE BEST SELLING SMALL CRUISING TYPE SAILBOATS, NOT ONLY IN THE UNITED STATES, BUT IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.   WE CAN THINK OF NO OTHER MANUFACTURER, OF ANY TYPE OF PRODUCT, THAT HAS SO TOTALLY DOMINATED ITS MARKET FOR SO LONG A PERIOD OF TIME .
