Description: Hauled for winter, now on the hard in Stonington village, Connecticut. The classic American ketch designed by Samuel Sturgis Crocker. Built at Chute & Bixby of Huntington, Long Island, completed in 1936. The thorough 'very major', definitive refit and impeccable rebuilding program was concluded in 2002 by Nathan Greeley at his boatworks in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. At that time, RANGER was declared to be: "bascially a new vessel" by one of the most respected wooden yacht surveyor's on the east coast.

Carvel mahogany planked on steam bent oak frames. Fastened with copper rivets and bronze screws. Full custom cut main'sl. Evolution jib and mizzen sails new in 2012. Also a new set of cotton sails (for antique class regattas). Auxiliary power provided by 47 hp Westerbeke diesel engine rebuilt 2000, estimated @ 600 hours since rebuild. Her interior is spacious and appointed with five comfortable berths. Awarded the prize as "Most Pleasing Sailboat" at Mystic Seaport Wooden Boatshow 2011.

RANGER is a well found, seaworthy, traditional cruising boat. The beauty of RANGER is everything needed to be done has, and she remains original in concept and true to her era. She stands ready and able for classic regattas, easy evening sails, coastal and blue water cruising. Call for appointment. The price has been reduced by motivated seller for off season sale.
