The M series' bottom has a deeper V, allowing for better tracking, and the rig is taller. The rudders are larger and more elliptical in shape for better control. The outboard was relocated to under the captain's seat rather than behind it, which made the cabin 15 inches longer. The cabin has four lights instead of two, and there are two rows of windows, allowing more natural illumination inside.
Six-foot-long cockpit seats make it easy for everyone aboard to enjoy the weather. The helm seat is slightly raised to make it easier for the helmsman to see over the cabin. The steering wheel is mounted on a pedestal. The cockpit is self-bailing. The mainsheet is guided by a traveler mounted at the forward end of the cockpit. The headsail is roller-furling. Plenty of storage is available in lockers beneath the cockpit seats. An anchor locker is located at the bow and a boarding ladder at the stern.
The MacGregor 26M comes with Lewmar winches. With an air draft of 35 feet, the mast can be raised or lowered by a single sailor using the built-in brake winch.
The standing rigging is tweaked with stay adjusters instead of traditional turnbuckles, which MacGregor contends are more reliable and easier to use aboard a trailerable boat where the mast is frequently raised and lowered.
The boat and trailer can be towed by a full-size sedan but an SUV makes a more suitable match.
The cabin has 6-foot headroom, large sofa seats, and the dinette seats easily convert into berths. The table seats four. The sole is carpeted. There is another double berth forward, where sleeping is made comfortable by a large ventilation hatch.
Overall, the boat has two double and two single berths. The galley features a sink, ice chest, an optional hand-pumped Origo alcohol stove, countertops, and storage space. The freshwater tank holds five gallons. The head, with its solid door, is fully enclosed for privacy.
The MacGregor 26 comes equipped with a beefy Evinrude 60-horsepower Evinrude outboard and can push the hull along at 24 knots, fast enough to tow a water-skier. The boat holds 24 gallons of fuel, giving it a range of 283 miles at 6 mph, or 84 miles at 21mph.
The boat's twin rudders can be retracted when the engine is in use, making for easier steering and reducing drag. A gate valve is used to fill the ballast water, a process that takes about four minutes. A forward vent lets air escape as water enters. Unlike a weighted keel, liquid moves from the centerline toward the lee rail as the boat heels.
