The MacGregor 65 is designed for worldwide cruising and chartering, and is the best selling large yacht in the history of sailing. It is one of the few production yachts eligible for the American Bureau of Shipping’s +A1 rating and for Coast Guard certification. It is also one of the fastest production sailing yachts, under sail or power.
Deep luxurious cockpit.
Main salon with two sleeping berths and dining for eight.
The relatively small, easily handled sail plan will drive the boat at speeds that no other cruising boat and very few large racing machines, can match. In winds of 15 knots, the 65 can sail at over 11 knots, and speeds of over 25 knots can be reached in strong winds. The boat can exceed 9 knots sailing to weather.
The low, Streamlined profile gives low windage, which greatly increases the speed of the boat when sailing or powering into the wind.
