This fine Ranger Tug was purchased new by the current owner, who is moving to a larger sailboat.
The Tug is equipped with virtually all of the available options, including Autopilot and Bow Thruster. A knowledgeable owner has shown the boat great care.
NOTE; The Volvo engine has been determined to not meet US EPA standards [although it does meet Canadian emission standards]. Volvo will replace engine if the boat is sold into the US, at no charge to the owner.
From John Livingston, President of Ranger Tugs:
Our company was started in 1958 based on a philosophy of quality and 'doing things right' and the reputation we earned continues today. My father Dave works with me daily and is probably the most accomplished boat designer in the world. Creator of thousands of models for various manufacturers, he can boast that more people have owned a boat that he built than any other designer in the world. We concentrate on one model at a time from ideation through in-house design, testing, and manufacturing. Our sales effort is lead by Jeff Messmer who has an impressive history in sales and customer service. In our shop, boats are put together by some of the most experienced boatbuilders in the Northwest. With an average of 15+ years in the business, our staff works hard to ensure that when you're in one of our boats, you'll have fun on the water.
2015 Ranger Tugs R-21EC
The Ranger R-21EC has earned a loyal following among enthusiasts who enjoy cruising at its classic best. And today it’s even better, with a boatload of improvements from greater interior volume and higher speed, to more responsive handling and convenient storage spaces.
Owners of this popular vessel have always measured fuel use in pints per hour, not gallons. With a refined hull design, the new Ranger R-21EC delivers significantly higher speeds and even better economy, bringing more cruise destinations within easy reach. And with a new cabin design that’s eighteen inches longer and seven inches wider, there’s room inside for pilot and companion seats, head, galley cabinet and a larger berth…greater comfort to make the trip all the more worthwhile.
Inspired by a traditional Bristol Bay trawler design, the Ranger R-21EC will never go out of style, ensuring both lasting appeal and maximum resale value. Easily trailerable, this boat rewards its owner with a level of versatility that few other cruisers can match.
