The deal breaker for us was how tender they were even at moderate speeds. I'm guessing this is also a product of the narrowness.


I too liked the looks of the Rangers and Cutwaters. I bought both a 28 and a 30cb new in the same year. Disappointed in the quality control on both. They are cranking them out like widgets. In retrospect Id only consider them if trailering was important. Much better choices would be American Tugs or Nordic Tugs.
