Designed by Chuck Paine and Ed Joy, Ranger, was commissioned by Craig Stevens, a former member of the John Alden design staff. Together, they collaborated on designing the ideal ocean cruiser, the main tenant being the ability to motorsail/motor @ 10 kts of boat speed in most conditions, hence the name "steady-sailer".
Built by Lyman-Morse, out of 5083 Aluminum with a raw finished hull, Ranger has a no-nonsense, low maintainence exterior, while the interior is bright, warm and comfortable. She has been outfitted to safely and pleasureably cruise extreme latitudes. With a range of 5,000 miles, the possibilities are limitless.
Ranger is currently wintering in our yard in Maine.

Hull & Deck
The hull, frames and plating are made out of 5083 aluminum with a hard chine. The long, wide and shallow keel offers stability and a low place tto house the engine (allowing the engine's weight to act as additioonal ballast). Fuel tankage is also located in the bilge. The hammered hull, though more costly to build, ensured superior aesthetics has a sanblasted finish. Ranger has a red sheer stripe protected by a practical aluminum rub rail.
Fold out & down transom door allows for easy access to the aft cockpit via the large swim platform.
4 watertight bulkheads
aluminum rub rail
The deck is strong and features plenty of space to store smaller craft for exploring, excercising and sailing. She currently carries a kayak, a sailing dory, a wind surfer and an Avon Tender, all in proper chaulks for quick deployment and security. Fashioned out of sandblasted aluminum, the wide side decks, cabin tops and fore deck are covered in "Tread-Master". The aft cockpit is covered with a aluminum framed canvas overhead.
