1973 Ranger 23

Greensboro, North Carolina, United States
$3,200 USD
Condition: good

Ranger 23 designed by Gary Mull very stable racing boat. It has Doyle main and 150 Genoa made in 1/2011. It also includes all of its original Hard Sails including main, 150 Genoa, 170 Genoa, storm jib and spinnaker. The cabin areas have been restored and painted with Pettit EZPoxy and the nonskid also has been painted with Pettit EZPoxy. All sail controls are accessible from the cockpit. The mast on this Ranger 23 is a short coastal mast.
Would suggest this boat have a boat slip as a home and not be used as a daysailer unless it is kept in a boatyard with the mast up and put in and taken out the water when used.

Equipment:
8 hp Evinrude Yachtwin two-cycle motor.
Aros commercial sailboat trailer
