Unlike the bird in the legend, this “PHOENIX” is no myth. Better than the original with her “Tom Wylie” designed keel and high aspect rudder, she’s capable of out running and out pointing any other Mac-65’s out there in style, safety and comfort. “PHOENIX” is one of the most extensively re-engineered MacGregor 65’s we’ve ever seen. Setup for racing with a crew, she’s also cruised very easily by a couple. Her state of the art keel and rudder make her fast and stable, while her beautiful new interior gives you more comfort and style than boats costing twice as much. Give us a call today and discover for yourself how far you can go in comfort and how fast you can get there in style.
