She presents an excellent opportunity to own a yacht that is capable of participating in the 2017 America’s Cup events during the J-class races.
RANGER was the first modern J-Class yacht built to bring this elegant class of yachts back into action on the race course. Designed primarily to the original lines of the famous "Super J" RANGER, which defended the America’s Cup in 1937, the new RANGER, 136 feet (41.7m), launched in 2003 at Danish Yachts shipyard. At the time, this brought the number of floating J-Class yachts to four; there are now eight with a ninth one in construction. RANGER is keenly for sale and is an extraordinary opportunity for a new owner to compete in the unique J-Class Regatta at America’s Cup 2017 in Bermuda.
In addition to being a competitive racing yacht, RANGER is a modern, comfortable cruiser, well suited for personal use and charter. She has been maintained to pristine levels and is fully upgraded. RANGER was substantially refit in 2008 and 2013/14. She completed her Lloyd’s 10-year classification in April 2014; she is MCA compliant. This quintessentially beautiful sailing yacht offers a comfortable cockpit and stunning classic interior. Accommodations include four staterooms that sleep up to 10 guests. While on board you will enjoy the modern conveniences expected on a luxury sailing superyacht today.
Recipient of numerous awards, in 2004 RANGER was awarded “Highest Technical Achievement in a Sailing Yacht” at the ShowBoats Design Awards. Her many racing achievements include being the Overall First Prize Trophy winner of both the 2011 J-Class Association (JCA) Regatta and the prestigious St. Barths Bucket 2010. She was the First Place Trophy Winner of the IRC A Division at Les Voiles de St. Tropez Regatta in 2015.
RANGER harkens back to the glory days of dignified classic beauty and thrilling sailing performance while integrating modern technology, conveniences and comfort. Whether you see yourself at the starting line of an America's Cup race or sipping rosé in St. Tropez surrounded by family, RANGER is a best-of-both-worlds yacht and she's ready for her next adventurous owner.
