Additional Info

Manufacturer Provided Description

Imagine a 40-foot cruiser with sleeping accommodations for up to six adults, live-aboard accommodations, a complete navigation electronics package and the economy and reliability of diesel power. Imagine its headroom and elbow-room, complete galley and head with shower, and its standard bow and stern thrusters for pinpoint maneuvering.

Now imagine all this—and more—in a trailerable 29-foot hull. That’s the idea behind the Ranger R-29, a comfortable family cruiser offering admirable range, a smooth ride, responsive performance and all the standard features you need for a cruise itinerary that could be measured in weeks, not just weekends. Among the R-29’s many noteworthy features are two private double staterooms plus a convertible dining banquette that converts to a third berth; a fully-equipped galley that’s ergonomically arranged for efficient meal preparation; large view windows and five opening skylight hatches for outstanding light and ventilation. There’s even a pilothouse door for immediate access to the foredeck, and a molded-in cabinet in the self-bailing cockpit for refreshment service and additional storage.

Thoughtful extras include a cabin-top rack for securing water toys, crab pots or bicycles; a stainless steel railing system surrounding the transom platform; and a hinged mast for trailering and access beneath low bridges. You can also select a variety of just-right options to tailor your R-29 exactly to your cruising style; these include a diesel generator, enhanced navigation electronics package, autopilot, air conditioning…even a Kyocera solar panel to keep batteries fully charged and to power selected onboard electrical systems.

Powerboat Guide Description

The Ranger R-29 is a compact coastal trawler with the salty lines reminiscent of a commercial tug boat. Marketed as a trailerable boat, the R-29 is a comfortable family cruiser offering admirable range, a smooth ride, responsive performance, and all the standard features required by the cruising couple. The R-29’s cozy interior incorporates a single-level salon with the galley to port and convertible dinette to starboard. A convenient pilothouse door at the helm provides easy access to the outside deck. The forward stateroom features an island berth with separate head and shower, and a bi-fold privacy door separates the midship stateroom from the salon. Large salon windows and five opening skylight hatches allow for excellent light and ventilation. Standard features include a full stereo system, hinged mast, bow and stern thrusters, swim platform, remote controlled spotlight, and cockpit safety rails. Note the cabin top rack for securing water toys or bicycles. Built on a semi-displacement hull, the R-29 is a lightweight boat and her offshore capabilities are modest. Cruise at 15 knots (20+ top) with a single 260hp Yanmar diesel. An updated R-29 CB (Command Bridge) model was introduced in 2017.
