Overview

RANGER, is a replica of the "J-Class" yacht which defended the Americas Cup in 1937. This sophisticated yacht was a labor of love by the current owner.  While chartering Endeavour for a classic regatta, it came to him to build a replica of the “super-J” RANGER. A stellar team contributed to the successful build of 136’ Ranger, finally launched by Danish Yachts in 2003. Naval architects Studio Scanu, Reichel-Pugh, and Fred Elliott worked with the original lines of Starling Burgess and Sparkman and Stephens to create a sailing superyacht that not only wins honors in regattas, but cruises in style as a proper luxury yacht. A departure from the original, she carries a central cockpit and doghouse as well as a splendid classic mahogany interior boasting 4 staterooms aft for owner and guests with 3 ensuite baths - all created by Glade Johnson Design. In addition, the classic interior is extremely quiet, as acoustical engineer Joe Smullin was in charge of isolating it from the hull, greatly reducing vibration and noise. Whereas the hull is steel, true to the original, the new teak doghouse is carbon fiber underneath and the classic raised panel interior is actually Nida-cored to keep weight down. Countless hours were spent on fitting modern technologies and living concepts into the matrix of a vintage sailing yacht that conformed to the J-Class Association’s rules and regulations. She is the epitome of a "spirit of tradition" yacht.


Accommodations

On deck the quality of the craftsmanship of RANGER is evident from the moment you step aboard at the transom and see straight teak planks with no joins all the way up to the traveler.

 

Sailing yacht RANGER has accommodations for eight in the aft guest quarters (ten if the Pullman berths are used) in four cabins including a lavishly appointed full-width master with tiled bath plus eight crew in three cabins, one cabin port and one starboard that sleeps two, with two full baths, and one cabin forward that sleeps four. A cozy cockpit for up to eight with a teak table is just behind the teak clad carbon fiber deck house featuring glove leather seating either side of the companionway leading below accented by a beautiful teak hand rail culminating at a teak and holly sole.

 

Superyacht RANGER's salon features a formal dining table to starboard and leather seating to port. Forward through a water-tight bulkhead, is the galley to port and the crew dinette to starboard.

 

The engine room and machinery spaces are accessed via the galley sole or a water-tight door under the companionway aft under the cockpit.

 

Forward of sailing yacht RANGER's forward engine room water-tight bulkhead, is a massive custom built-in freezer and refrigerator. This area also accommodates galley dry storage and air conditioning. Aft, via a water-tight door in the forward engine room bulkhead, is the engine room with electrical panels forward, starboard and port generators in sound shields and the main engine on the centerline. This area has been ingeniously designed and provides 360° access to all machinery and systems with great headroom for a J boat.

 

Interior Finish Note:

It should be noted that superyacht RANGER's interior is fully isolated from the hull and no vibration or working of this interior exist under power or with tons and tons of load on deck from winches even when there is 26 tons on the back stays and green water flowing over both her weather and leeward rails.

 

The underlying material for sailing yacht RANGER's interior is Nida-core to keep the interior light. Over this very state-of-the-art foundation, is the finest of old world craftsmanship featuring flawless gloss finish over raised mahogany panels with crotch cut flamed mahogany centers making for a very high quality impressive interior all the more impressive due to the incredible detail of Glade Johnson's design which can only be appreciated by a personal inspection. The traditional 1930s interior was built in Sardinia and shipped to Skagen, Denmark for installation.

Remarks

The original design brief of sailing yacht RANGER called for a yacht that could be used as a family cruising yacht, a racing yacht, a corporate tool and a charter yacht.

 

Ranger was the first modern J Class yacht to be built from the drawings of an original J Class yacht.

At the time, J Class rules mandated the boat be the same material as the original—in Ranger’s case steel.  To be able to charter readily, RANGER was also built and classed to Lloyds and MCA compliance.

 

Over the last 10 years J Class rules have evolved. To this end, super racing yacht RANGER has kept pace by having refits in the weight of the hull, the rigging, and winches. The boat is lighter and weight redistributed, rigging is composite EC6, there is a lighter carbon boom, and electric winches have replaced the coffee grinders.

 

Super yacht RANGER’s upgrades and rating keep her in the winner’s circle for J Class as well as other racing events. In last year’s Les Voiles de St. Tropez, RANGER won the Kappa Trophy for first place in the IRC A division.

 

For cruising, corporate guests, charter guests and the owner’s family all enjoy RANGER’s lovely, voluminous classic interior and stunning super yacht sailing performance.

 

While RANGER’s beauty and refinement evoke the era of the 30s, the conveniences and technology aboard can only be attributed to our modern age. Built to Lloyds and MCA compliant, RANGER is the epitome of having the best of both worlds, a beautiful, high performance racing yacht and beautiful cruising yacht with all the amenities of a modern luxury yacht. The purchase of RANGER is an opportunity to become a member of the elite J-Class Association, soon to become 9 yachts strong. Whether for racing or cruising, super yacht RANGER is ready to set sail.
