Hi, I sent E-Mail to Sharpmarine asking for help in obtaining the specifications 0f trailer and this is the reply that I received.

We cannot assist with the shipment of second hand or grey market boats overseas.
We have dealers in Australia who would be happy to provide you with a brochure and pricing information on a new MacGregor 26.

So I am still looking for any details that people may know.

Thanks Tim

THis is a reasonable position for them to take, given that they have a distributor in AUS, of course. You cant set up a distribution channel, and then compete with it.

I recently completed the "Application to import a small road trailer" and used the following for my 2005 26M's steel trailer.
I used the below information for my application and it passed. I am not 100% sure it was accurate because at the time I needed to use internet resources etc but I think all they are interested in is "does it fit within guidelines".

I needed to supply a copy of my passport signed by a JP as true and correct copy of the original.
I also included copies of the statement of origin, the MAC specs page and a picture of the trailer and the VIN/Chassis Number.

Aggregated trailer mass of trailer ? 1905kg
Tare mass? (I think this is 575lbs or 260kg) 322.05kg
Gross trailer mass? 1905kg
Length of trailer? 8.198m
Width of trailer? (I think this is 8 foot or 2.438m) 2.4892m
Height of trailer? 1.84m

Hi Tim,

Wondering how you are going with the importing of the Macgregor and trailer. I have often thought about do the same in the past, but now the dollar is near parity, the thought arises once again. I would have thought that the Australian dealers would have reduced thier prices accordingly, but that does not seem to be the case. Be interested to talk with you in the near future.
Cheers
Ian

Ian,

Do a search under my name "Mistral" on this site or the AUS TSP site and you will find quite a lot of details on the importing of our "Indigo Blue" 26M some 3 years ago.
Otherwise I can assist you as well, but some others too, like Phillip.

Hello!

I have read many posts on these forums, but this is my first.

Thanks for this post as it covers exactly what i have been looking for in terms of trailer spec for the Infrastructure website.

I am have been based in Europe, and I have a 26s (i think) and want to send it back to OZ. I have been looking in to taking my trusty 26s with me and i was wondering how you obtained the certificate of origin for your trailer (also any other helpful things like manufacturing certificate for the boat for reg in Aus).

It looks like i have the deluxe trailer.

I am in the process of slogging through the Infrastructure website and make a bit of progress before i hit a road block and have to wait to call Australia again. Annoying. I am slogging through Mistral's 261 posts to see if i can glean any information also but thought i would post here.

Thanks,

Jason

Me again!

I have the Mac Deluxe trailer, but all of the information has faded from it. I have tried to locate the VIN on the trailer with no luck. Can anyone take a pic of their plate and post it for me ? Trying to match the information up. I don't seem to have enough numbers for a VIN, which makes me a bit worried. My plate is below, even if you can fill in the blanks for me it would be a big help!

Thanks,

J
