Yacht Company was started by Roger MacGregor in the early as part of his Stanford University MBA class project.
MacGregor produced primarily small, sailing yachts, from a 15-foot catamaran to 17-foot pocket cruisers, up to 26-foot water ballasted sizes, easily hauled by trailers. MacGregor has also built a 36-foot catamaran, and a 65-foot yacht. The 26 had the ability to mount up to a 60 horsepower outboard motor. At least two large one-off yachts were built around 1987 - one for Mr. MacGregor's daughter (who is now the owner of Tattoo yachts) and a second one for a private party in Connecticut, USA. MacGregor was known for using innovative features to provide stability while maintaining light weight and easy “trailerability.” MacGregor manufactured over 36,000 yachts during its lifetime. While most of these were the smaller pocket cruisers and larger trailerable models, it also made about 100 of the M-65 model during its 8 year production run, making it the most successful luxury yacht ever made. The MacGregor Yacht Company was in business until early 2013, having been succeeded by Tattoo Yachts.
