Hi,

Ranger yachts were based in port Macquarie for some time, I recall in the eighties?. I think the owners were ex Steber guy's from Taree NSW. I am sure they built the 35 Ranger there, but not sure about the 40's ? One of the issues with these is the teak decks, with the vessels with this age, they areworn out and leaking due to the way they were installed originally and just time doing its thing. From what I have seen the quality of windows and ports etc were done fairly cheaply when built, and hence don't look like they are doing there job now on vessels I have seen at Marina's.They are fairly low in the Bow, and most likely fairly wet ? . They are a fairly huge volume vessel thou.
You just need to have a good look and satisfy yourself , you are prepared to take them on as they are, or hook in and get them up to speed.
