SHE’S FAST, SHE’S BEAU­TI­FUL AND SHE’S FOR SALE

Built in 2003, Ranger was the first mod­ern J-Class sail­ing yacht. She won the 2010 St. Barths Bucket Re­gatta, the 2011 J Class As­so­ci­a­tion Re­gatta and took first place in the 2015 IRC A Di­vi­sion at Les Voiles de St. Tropez Re­gatta.

Like the orig­i­nal Ranger, the 1937 Amer­ica’s Cup de­fender, she is built of steel, but un­like her pre­de­ces­sor, takes ad­van­tage of mod­ern ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing com­pos­ite EC6 rig­ging and a car­bon boom.

With her clas­sic looks — large over­hangs, a flush deck with dog­house, and a tra­di­tional in­te­rior with ma­hogany and raised pan­el­ing — she is sure to turn heads in ev­ery har­bor. She sleeps 10 in four state­rooms and is for sale at a re­duced prize of $5.9 mil­lion. northropand­john­son.com
