Conceived as a true performance cruiser and ready for adventure. Designed by Tom Wylie as a cruising boat that just happened to sail fast and built by Schooner Creek Boat Works in Portland, Oregon. RAGE (All That Is New “It’s The Rage”) is a legendary West Coast performer. Rage is easily handled by a couple or small crew. In 1994, RAGE broke the Pacific Cup record set by Bill Lee's MERLIN by four hours. In 1996, she again set a new course record of 7 days, 22 hours and 1 minute. Up and down the coast and across the Pacific. Her best time to Hawaii was 6 days and 19 hours, RAGE has proven herself to be the ultimate lightweight performer and cruiser.
In 2007, she was completely refitted by Schooner Creek Boat Works. The extensive refit included new interior and exterior paint and varnish, new Lewmar Ocean Series hatches and portlights, Magnum inverter/charger, new batteries, Balmar alternator, and the addition of cruising comforts including an upgraded interior and galley, pressure hot/cold water, Waeco refrigeration, Webasto hydronic heat system, 120v AC system, and flat screen television.
In 2012 Rage had her sail inventory replaced with New Doyle performance cruising sails, the main sail area and hull draft were reduced and she was outfitted with new gear and equipment including an electric windless and anchor locker, electric main halyard winch, a stack pack and lazy jacks for ease of sail handling as well as all new Garmin electronics, auto pilot and wind generator.
Rage has just completed a round trip cruise toTahitiand is ready to go again.
Bring your seabag and step aboard Rage for the cruise of a lifetime.

Finished in white painted surfaces and varnished butternut and Honduran mahogany, with a varnished teak and holly cabin sole, RAGE’S interior is bright and spacious. Large overhead hatches and portlights allow excellent light and ventilation and well placed interior lighting illuminates the cabin at night. Her interior arrangement is finely conceived for long distance offshore cruising or racing and will comfortably sleep a full crew in two quarterberths, salon settees and pilot berths, and a master cabin queen berth.
Starting forward is the master stateroom. There is a queen berth to port with a shelf above on the hull side. To starboard is an L-shaped settee with shelf above along the hull side. At the aft end of the settee is a small counter with two drawers below. Forward of the stateroom is a sail locker with ample room for water toys and bicycles when cruising.
The head is just aft of the forward stateroom. A counter runs along the forward bulkhead. There is a mirror above and a locker below. The head is located on the outboard side of the compartment. There is a hanging locker located across the forward passageway to starboard. The head has pressure hot and cold water as well as a hand held shower.
The spacious main salon is located just aft. Handrails run the length of the cabin to port and starboard. The cabin sides are trimmed with varnished mahogany veneer and there are two elongated portlights on each side of the salon. To starboard is a straight settee with a pilot berth above and outboard. Forward of the settee there is a side table with drawers below and storage locker above. To port is an L-shaped settee with pilot berth above and outboard. Additional storage is available forward in a matching side table and locker. At the centerline, there is a beautifully varnished drop leaf table. Just forward on the bulkhead is a shallow cabinet with storage for bottles and glasses. There is a flat panel television mounted on the bulkhead above.
The outboard facing nav station is aft and to starboard of the main salon. The wide, L-shaped table is perfect for spreading out admiralty charts and features storage below the hinged lifting top and two drawers and a hinged locker forward and to port. Outboard above the table, the AC/DC panel, SSB and VHF radios, stereo receiver, radar, GPS and computer monitor are within close reach of the navigator's seat.
Across the salon to port is the well conceived L-shaped galley. A two-bin under counter stainless sink is located at the forward, inboard end of the counter. Pressure hot/cold water and manual raw and fresh foot pumps are available. Below the sink there is a large locker and access to plumbing. Above the counter there are two smaller lockers that provide excellent storage space. Outboard of the sink is the top loading refrigerator compartment. Just aft is the stainless steel gimbaled stove and oven. There is storage in a bank of drawers under the countertop aft of the stove. Outboard of the sink, there is excellent storage for dishes and dry goods on two divided shelves running fore and aft along the hull side above the galley counter.
Twin quarter berths are aft and to port and starboard of the companionway stairs. There is a shelf above and aft along the hull side and excellent storage below the berths. Reading lights are located over the forward end of both berths. Aft of the quarter berths are two hanging lockers.
