My husband and I cruised on a Ranger
33 for almost three years, first down the Pacific coast to Panama
, crossed to Galapagos
, did the puddle jump to French Polynesia
, sailed from Marquesas
and from there back to home port in Francisco. After that, I have to say that the Ranger
is an amazing boat and totally exceeded our expectations.
Our neighbor in the marina has an ericson
35, and although I don't like the lines as much as the ranger I have to say I like the companionway
much better, since it's way smaller and better for open ocean sailing. Also, the decks are definitely wider, which is another good thing that the ranger doesn't have.
