ABOUT RAGAMUFFIN

Ragamuffin is a crewed charter yacht in the Virgin Islands and has been since 2004.   Previously she was on Lake Champlain for over 10 years, as the yacht “Dash”.  From 1980 to about 1990 she was a crewed charter yacht in the Virgin Islands under the name of “Bagheera”. 

Ragamuffin has been extensively remodeled and upgraded in the last eight years.  Complete aft cabin remodel; aft head; complete galley remodel, to increase storage and add new appliances; all exterior plywood walls removed and replaced with teak. The forward head has been remodeled creating 2 heads each head with an en suite shower. New generator; cockpit enclosure; sun awning; chain plates; standing and running rigging replaced; new halyards; oversize winches; complete electrical upgrade with added circuits and more. The teak decks are in the process of being removed and tread master to be installed.

Ragamuffin appears at first to be a CT54 but is considerably bigger than a 1975 model and is noticeably different and slightly larger than a 1983. She had a lead extension of 18 inches added to her keel, making her much better going to weather.  The owner operators have raced her with good results in many classic yacht races.
