Stephens were all expensive custom builds, and this particular example was the second built for her original owner; he incorporated everything he'd learned from the first boat and Ranger truly is a masterpiece. With major refits in 1997 and 2011 (about $800,000 was spent, as well as a tremendous amount of sweat equity), she's been updated throughout but of course retains the stately traditional lines for which Stephens was so well known and is in boat show condition today. A vessel such as this comes on the market only occasionally and Ranger must be seen to be appreciated.
Some highlights: Awlgripped hull with freshly glassed cabintop and new teak decks (the decks alone cost over $100,000 and are BEAUTIFUL!), Vosper stabilizers, new heavy duty Falcon windlass, twin naturally aspirated Detroit Diesel 6-71s, Kohler genset, new batteries, vessel largely rewired and replumbed including VacuFlush heads and new fresh water tanks, new pumps for all four reverse cycle CruiseAir units, new color chartplotter, interior totally refit in the late 1990s including refinished woodwork, remodeled galley (note the hand laid teak sole) and new canvas/carpets/cushions/curtains, etc, etc, etc.
Note that in 2012 the vessel earned a USCG Certificate of Inspection for chartering. Any vessel that's a candidate for a COI is put under a microscope before it passes; Ranger has been through the functional equivalent of about a dozen buyer's surveys so there shouldn't be any issues of note now! And the modifications necessary for the COI were so well designed and implemented that they in no way detract from the look and feel of a private yacht.
Also note that the boat is lying in a transferable Ballena Bay A Dock slip with a view, and the harbormaster has indicated that they will consider allowing a liveaboard (and this yacht is both better built and has more space than small condos in the City selling for two or three times as much!).
Price just reduced again as of March 2017, motivated out of state owners encouraging offers; originally listed at over $400,000, this yacht is a STEAL!

Also note that the back half of the port hull side had new ribs and new planking installed about 15 years ago, and USCG inspectors went thru the boat with a fine-toothed comb looking for any structurally problems before awarding the COI.
