Chesapeake Ranger Tugs Introduces the New Ranger R27

Thursday, July 08, 2010

Chesapeake Ranger Tugs announced the all new Ranger Tugs R27, a fully-equipped cruising vessel that continues the Ranger Tugs tradition of creating trailerable seaworthy tugs. “Ranger Tugs has done it again,” said Chuck Wistar of Chesapeake Ranger Tugs. “The new R27 is the perfect choice for cruising in this region thanks to its shallow draft, comfortable interior, and solid engineering. This is one great trailerable tug.”

The R27 shares many of the same characteristics as her larger sistership, the Ranger 29, and hits the mark with an attractive design and technical upgrades. The new R27 features an expanded cockpit and aft deck or “back porch.” With nearly 50 square feet, it provides 25% more cockpit space than the popular Ranger 25. Comfort and convenience are not compromised; the new layout offers easy access to a standard 180hp Yanmar diesel while removing engine noise from the cabin.

 “Our Chesapeake Edition is made for people who love cruising and want to explore the Bay in style. We’ve added all the features you need to cruise the East Coast, Canadian Maritimes, the Great Loop, or the Bahamas. She’s also a great boat for inland lakes and rivers,” explains Wistar. “With a shallow 26-inch draft, the R27 is the ideal boat for a weekend, endless gunkholing, or a month-long cruise.”

Built in Kent, Washington, the fuel-efficient R27 has a well-appointed cabin and galley. The midship office has a desk and chair with enough space to convert to a berth that sleeps two. Moving forward, the spacious master cabin with its 6’5” v-berths sleeps two in comfort.

Cooks will love the standard galley which includes double sinks, refrigerator/freezer, inverter, microwave, and a combination propane stove/oven. The dinette table has a hydraulic piston that allows for easy conversion to a berth or lounging area. The R27’s standard marine head has an electric flush toilet, glass vessel sink and shower.

Year-round comfort and effortless operation are both possible with the options available for customizing the R27. Yacht-like systems such as standard bow and stern thrusters offer excellent maneuverability around marinas and docks. The vessel’s 8’6” beam makes the R27 easy to trailer. A new option in 2011 will be solar panels on all Ranger Tug models.

With a special introductory price of $149,937, the R27 can be fitted out with popular options that include a generator, air conditioning, Garmin touch-screen chart plotter, radar, and sonar, Garmin autopilot, and other options for under $185,000.
