I was at the Miami International Boat Show today. I went aboard the Ranger Tug 29, the Benetau Swift Trawlers 30 and 34. All really nice boats but all with bad access to the engine and other systems.

Any updates to the bigger Ranger Tug news? This is an interesting discussion for me because I agree with what some have said about brand loyalty.

My first boats were C Dorys and I loved them (and still do). There are many reasons why they have a big following and I'm not gonna get into that here. But I've always said that if C Dory made a beamier and bigger model then I'd be all over it.

I'm quite certain that there's TONS of Ranger Tug owners who feel the same way about their line as I did about C Dory. The biggest Ranger is a 31' and it's really not all that beamy. The biggest C Dory is the 26' Venture with an 8'6 beam. Ranger probably loses a good deal of customers to Nordic Tug, American Tug and others (although their sales are through the roof, they probably could care less!).

I'd love to see a 35'+ option from both of the companies I mentioned. (and yes; I'm familiar with Sea Sport and OceanSport boats.....)
