This is a modified 5 stateroom, galley up, (with full office) layout.  There are three complete heads with shower stalls. Featuring  non skid Fiberglass walk around decks, a large covered aft deck, enclosed pilothouse, custom remodeled galley up, and large covered fly-bridge.

Vessel underwent a rigorous modernization and repair which has resulted in a vastly improved boat. Stainless reinforcements were added to the salon ceiling to eliminate the sagging boat deck these models were known for. All new modern galley is open to the salon. Teak decks removed and glassed, entire boat awl gripped. 

Boat was hauled in June 2016 for fresh bottom paint, bottom was stripped, barrier coated and painted. The hull was compounded and waxed and stabilizers completely serviced including seals and rams rebuilt. Engines have low hours since major overhauls, one recent generator. 

This is a very well kept and professionally modernized classic trawler reluctantly offered for sale by an owner who is retiring. Offers considered as well as smaller trades. 



The spacious salon and galley are on the main deck and entered through double doors from the covered aft deck.Forward is the enclosed pilothouse with port and starboard side doors.

Below decks are accessed via curved stairwells, aft from the main salon and forward through the pilothouse. The aft sections  house the master stateroom with en-suite head and shower stall.

Brokers Comments

The 66 Cheoy Lee Long Range Cruiser  has a proven safety record at sea. Her classic rounded stern allows her kind maneuvering in following seas.

Ranger has benefited from two very caring owners recently. She underwent a 14 month professional yard refit in 2002 which structurally reinforced her fly-bridge decks and completely modernized her interior with a state of the art galley and all new headliner and lighting.. She offers quality structural and interior upgrades not available on other 66 Cheoy Lee's.

A well planned and executed  repair and engineering program has addressed the areas of needed improvement which were common to these yachts.
