Parting my Venture 25 if people are interested.

Post by Bootsy1968 »

Hi everyone.
I have a McGregor 25 Venture. I got it 4 years ago and I have not had time to restore it. I have other project to finish before I can touch it so I am thinking about parting it so this can help other who are in need of parts.
I have the mast, sail, cushion and it seats on a trailer.
Here is a video of it when I got it and cleaned it.
Sadly now the mold is back :( and I will have to pressure wash it again.
I am open to anything. If you would like to talk, reach me on Messenger.

PS: If I don't get enough people interested in parts then I will keep the boat and work on it one of these years

If you do decide to part out, I would like to buy two of the J-shaped clamps that hold down the poptop.

Does it have an alcohol cook stove? I'm looking for one.
Outboard engine?
Rope? You should leave the sheets with the sails, but if there is extra rope I would be interested.
Extra blocks (pulleys)?
Red-lense interior lights?
Where are you located (state, city)?

Thanks,
Bud

On the (MacGregor) Venture of Newport 23 forum there was someone looking for a rudder, if yours would fit.

Hello:
I have just purchased a venture 25 as a Christmas present yself and my son. I have sailed most of my life, but except for brief excursions on a Mac 26, this is my first Mac experiernce. I am wondering if you might have the trailering brackets for the mast, interior cushions, extra ground tackle, head. These are all missing from this one. I am in the Chattanooga area but can travel. I am at ncsailor62@gmail.com
Thank you,
Robert

Robert, the original poster made this entry in 2020… I would imagine it’s long gone by now. Also, he’s not visited our forum since March 2021.

Perhaps you might want to create a new thread and ask other owners for what you need?

Also, you could contact Blue Water Yachts and see if they might be able to help you with some of your needs - they’re the best Mac parts supplier in the US.
