Additional Info

Manufacturer Provided Description
The R27 has nearly 50 Sq ft of aft deck space making the cockpit 25 percent larger than the original R25. This allows for easy access to the standard 180 HP Yanmar diesel and keeps the engine noise out of the cabin. The larger cockpit also lends itself to more above and below deck storage. The well appointed cabin has a midship office with desk and chair, this space also converts to a berth that sleeps two. The dinette table is on a hydraulic piston that allows for an easy conversion to a berth or lounging area. The spacious front v-berth sleeps two adults and is over 6‘5" in length. Cooks will love the standard galley which includes a sink, refrigerator, inverter, microwave and a combination propane stove/oven. The marine head is standard with an electric flush toilet, glass vessel sink and shower. Yacht size features like standard bow and stern thrusters provide for excellent maneuverability around the dock and the 8‘6" beam allows the boat to be easily trailered. Solar panels are an option on all of our models including the Ranger R27.
