Ranger Tugs

Ranger Tugs LogoGrowing up in a family that spent weekends on the water, I can't imagine a life without boating. I had the experience of boating in a great variety of conditions, primarily in the Northwest: water sports on the lakes, crossing the Straits of Juan De Fuca with huge tide changes, strong winds, and rollers from the Pacific; exploring and fishing in Canadian, Alaskan, and Florida's coastal waters. These were family affairs and fun times. We were also testing new models or ideas for Livingston Boat Company, Reinell, Bayliner, Wellcraft, and Regal.

We have incorporated the ideas and experiences of insatiable users into the structure, design, and quality that we want in a boat.

Our company was started in 1958 based on a philosophy of quality and 'doing things right' and the reputation we earned continues today. My father Dave works with me daily and is probably the most accomplished boat designer in the world. Creator of thousands of models for various manufacturers, he can boast that more people have owned a boat that he built than any other designer in the world. We concentrate on one model at a time from ideation through in-house design, testing, and manufacturing. Our sales effort is lead by Jeff Messmer who has an impressive history in sales and customer service. In our shop, boats are put together by some of the most experienced boatbuilders in the Northwest. With an average of 15+ years in the business, our staff works hard to ensure that when you're in one of our boats, you'll have fun on the water.

Sincerely,

2013 Northeast Ranger Tugs Association Rendezvous PDF Print E-mail
Written by Peter Haywood   
Friday, 16 March 2012 13:09

3rd Annual

Northeast Ranger Tugs Rendezvous

August 22-24, 2013 (Departure August 25, 2013)

Mitchell Park & Marina in Greenport, NY

Hosted by the Northeast Ranger Owners Association

Check out the conversation at TugNuts

Contact the Northeast Ranger Owners Association Commodore if you have any ideas or requests for seminars, meetings, etc.

Information posted on TUGNUTS:


Hello All,

The reservation for space has been made at Mitchell Park Marina located  in the Town of Greenport. The Rendezvous will start with arrival on 08/22/13 with departure on 8/25/13. However, they have a deal, stay 3 nights and get the 4th night free. The free night does not include weekends.  Each of you must make your advance reservations directly with the marina. Their phone number is 631-477-2200. This is prime boating season on Long Island and even though we have a slot for our event, we do not have a specified number of slips. It is recommended to make a reservation ASAP before slips are all taken. Specify that you are with the Ranger Tug Rendezvous. We do not have a specific agenda set yet, but it will be similar to our past events; pot luck dinner, formal dinner, raffle and prizes, presentations by Garmin as well as other marine related products, an afternoon cruise with a rafting for lunch and much more. I have contacted the South Hampton dealer, Dave Bofill, that sells Cutwater so hopefully we will also have some of our Cutwater counterparts also attending. Peter Haywood of Winter Island Yachts our Ranger Tug Dealer will also be attending. Ranger Tugs will also be providing some of our raffle prizes.

At our business meeting last year it was decided that the cost per person will be $125.00. This will include the formal dinner, cover event costs and seed money for the next event.

Carol Whittier and I are chairing the event. I will be coordinating everything with those who volunteer and Carol will be handling the fees for the event, coordination of attendees and catering.

We need volunteers to help with the following categories:

 

  • Goodie Bags & name tags
  • Presentations and presenters
  • Raffle prizes
  • Publicity

 

Those wanting to volunteer may contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  I will fill you in on the requirements and coordinate it with you.

Those trailering from the north and want to cruise to the event can launch their boat on the Connecticut River right by I-95, here is a link. http://ct.gov/deep/cwp/view.asp?a=2686&q=381770&deepNav_GID=1620. This is a great ramp and very secure to leave your rig. From there it is about 20 mile ride across the Long Island Sound to Greenport. In good weather and seas it is a great ride. There is also a ferry from New London to Orient Point, but I am not sure of the expense for a rig. And then there is always the ride around the Long Island Sound via roadways.

Looking forward to a fun event and hoping Mother Nature cooperates!

Click here for Sea Magazine's Ranger R31 Sea Trial - a review, July 2012.

     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."
