Ranger Tugs has introduced its new R27, an all-new boat that combines many features of the R29 with the extended sport cockpit of the latest R25. Introduced at the recent TrawlerFest in Anacortes, Washington, near the home of Ranger Tugs, this trailerable tug is going to be an attractive option for cruisers who want as much flexibility as possible.
Chesapeake Ranger Tugs has an early incentive base price on the new R27 of $149,937, which includes a remarkable number of standard features that would normally be options. These include bow and stern thrusters, Garmin VHF, stereo, windlass and electric head. Have a look at the complete list here.
A “Chesapeake Edition” from CRT includes air conditioning, 2.5kW generator, macerator, Garmin 5215 15″ touch-screen chartplotter/GPS with radar, sonar and autopilot, an anchor package, a Bimini for the cockpit and a “Cruise Kit” which is basically the Coast Guard-required equipment. See the details in this brochure, which includes the price.
The photos you see here were provided by Chesapeake Ranger Tugs. Chuck Wistar, who co-owns the dealership with his wife Andrea, said the new Ranger 27 will be at his dealership early this autumn and will make its East Coast debut at the Baltimore TrawlerFest. Wistar also said that the first customer to step up and order the new R27 will get a spectacular deal on the price. That’s gonna be impressive since the published price (see above) is already pretty reasonable for a diesel-powered boat with these kinds of options and with an expected lifespan measured in decades before it needs major refit.
We will have some more photos to share with you soon.
