Notes

Though the earlier RANGER 29 (1971) was also designed by Mull, the RANGER 28 with it’s clear IOR influence, is a completely new design.

Some later boats (after hull #86) were delivered with a taller rig and deeper keel.(5.0’/1.52m)
Tall rig:
I: 37.50’ / 11.43m
J: 12.00’ / 3.66m
P: 32.80’ / 10.00m
E: 9.80’ / 2.99m
SA (100%): 385.72 ft2 / 35.83 m2
