The MacGregor 65 is arguably the fastest production mono-hull ever built. This rocket-ship will appeal to the racer at heart who wants to cruise comfortably and very fast. These were well built yachts with a USCG rated +1A stability rating. They were built with 1.5 inch solid fiberglass bulkheads and all solid glass construction with no coring. Her 12 foot beam provides for spacious living quarters below.
Over an 8 year period, MacGregor 65 Corporation built 100 of these magnificent yachts. During it's production run, it was the best selling large yacht in the history of sailing. The MacGregor 65 holds many long distance sailing records. It was also one of the finest long distance cruising yachts ever built.

We bought the sailboat in June 1999 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Since that time we have spent about 6 months a year living on Sea Ya II. Our travels: Key West to Chesapeake Bay in the state of Maryland, Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Puerto Rico, Leeward and Windward Caribbean Islands south to Trinidad (where we were based for four years), Venezuela's Puerto la Cruz, Venezuela's out islands, Bonaire and Curacao. We sailed back to Ft. Lauderdale in May 2008.

Most governments require rating bureau certification on large yachts. The ABS certification widens the market for the MacGregor 65.
The MacGregor 65 is also eligible for the United States Coast Guard certification, allowing the commercial use of the boat for up to 44 passengers.
MacGregor Inc. improved the boat’s strength dramatically in 1992 by making major design changes. Several projects involved improving the transverse and longitudinal hull strength. Increasing hull section thickness, adding seven continuous (meaning that the bond is without gaps) bulkheads along with the continuous longitudinal stringers significantly improves the boat integrity. The deck is secured to the hull with stainless bolts on six inch centers adding 5200 sealant 100 percent of the circumference insuring a strong and water tight bond.
Sea Ya II, a 1994 MacGregor 65 is built to exceed American Bureau of Shipping fiberglass construction requirements with an ABS +A1 classification.
ABS approves the structural plan of the boat and specifies hull thickness, bulkhead (transverse) thickness, stringer size and material strength requirements. ABS states: “In general, the hull is to be longitudinally framed with the deck and shell longitudinals supported by transverse web rings, transverse bulkhead or a combination of both…hard spots are to be avoided…”

Entering the companionway, you have the navigation station and lower helm and aft head to starboard. There is a spacious galley along the port side with a nice double sink and loads of counter space. The large aft cabin has a center line berth with lots of room to walk around and seating too. Moving forward from the galley is the salon with dinette settee and lockers and cabinets for storage. Forward to port are 2 bunk berths that can be used for storage as well and to starboard a large head with shower stall. The Vee Berth is forward with a large bed and ample storage. The interior is done in gray, black, silver and mirrors giving a modern look to this well thought out cruiser. The galley has storage lockers with plastic bins on shelves to keep provisions and 2 side opening refrigerators and a deep freezer that opens from the top.
The cockpit is large and comfortable with a folding table and a larger table for guests. The hand rail that runs from the cockpit to the bow is large and strong for safety on deck. She is equipped with large and strong davits for her RIB and a swim platform stern like a catamaran.
