1971 Venture 17

  • by Macgregor
  • It has a weighted swing keel which makes it self righting. The double hull with foam flotation makes it unsinkable.
  • At 800 lbs, it tows easily. It is in great condition for it`s age.
  • It has a cabin that can sleep 3 comfortably and has room for a porta potty.
  • The swing keel draws about 17" when up and 4'9" when down
  • self bailing cockpit.
  • The two sails are in great shape
  • all rigging is intact and working, it`s ready to sail.

    Many extras- two gas tanks, PFD's, owners manuals for boat and motor, anchors, etc.

    The company states on their website that the 17' Macgregor Sailboat "...is the fastest and best handling of any of the trailerable cruising sailboats. It is easy to sail, and easy to trailer to your favorite sailing waters. You don't need an expensive mooring. It can be stored on its trailer, launched at any ramp, and rigged in just minutes."

    On the trailer at highway speed, you can visit great places that water-bound boats will never see, and you can avoid the expense of in the water storage.

    The boat could use some cleaning and polishing, but is ready to sail.

    8hp outboard- Mariner by Yamaha Outboard is a 2 cylinder, 2 stroke, low hours, runs great, some cosmetic issues.
