The new Tattoo 26 replaces the Macgregor 26m as your universal machine for  sailing, motoring, cruising, and camping on the water.

After selling and servicing MacGregor Sailboats for over 30 years in the Cincinnati, Kentucky, Indiana areas, we are excited to offer the successor of the Macgregor 26.

What are the differences between the Tattoo 26 and the MacGregor 26?

  • The Tattoo 26 differs from the MacGregor 26 as follows:
  • The standard boat is white with blue stripes on both the hull and deck. The blue is a dark navy and the white is warmer than MacGregor white. We also offer a navy blue hull with white stripes.
  • We have reduced the size of the stripes on the deck. We also break the upper stripe between the side and front windows.
  • Stern rails are now standard equipment.
  • The steering pedestal has been redesigned. We have modified the helmsman’s seat both to strengthen it and make access easier.
  • The interior liner is cream and the cushions are a lighter color with a higher-grade cushion foam. This is neutral enough that the entire look of the interior can be changed with a few accent colors. The bulkheads are now bamboo rather than mahogany finish.
  • The table is molded fiberglass that incorporates storage.
  • The standard trailer has a galvanized tongue and wheels. The jack and hitch are bolted on rather than welded so they are easier to repair or replace.
  • We install a ballast plug with a molded female receiver instead of trying to adjust the plug to the hole in the fiberglass tank.
  • A 6-switch 12-volt panel and LED lights are now standard.
  • The seat hatches in the cockpit are supplied with straps to keep fuel tanks from sliding out.
  • Lines are coded with color tracers, and halyards are led aft to the cockpit.
  • The mainsail has been redesigned with a larger head to increase sail area slightly and give a more modern look.
  • A topping lift to hold the boom up is now standard.
  • The traveller is replaced with a pad eye on centerline and offset positions to move the boom out of the cockpit at anchor. A 4:1 vang is standard equipment. We fit Lewmar aluminum sheet winches.
  • We use high quality ISO-DCPD resin instead of Ortho-DCPD resin for improved osmosis resistance.
