Check out Sea Magazine's Ranger R31 Sea Trial - a review.
There is a lot to read here, from reviewers who experience a lot of boats and pull no punches. The tester's opinion: "Ranger has done an excellent job with its new flagship. The R-31 is fast and comfortable, but it can also cruise at lower, more economical speeds. The builder has addressed many of the issues that owners of small cruisers have been complaining about for years." The article ends with a solid thumbs up: "The entire range has been a success story in the boating field. This latest offering should add to that success. The R-31 is a must-see for people looking for a comfortable coastal cruiser, regardless of which coast they live on."
