Re: Great Tribute to Nigel Irens

Brian,

we are the very happy owners of a Nigel Irens designed powerboat - the Rangeboat 39.
A mid range cruiser or a day boat for longer excursions.
Same concepts: lightweight (4.5 metric tons), long (for the living space) and very efficient (1 l/nm @ 11knots).
A pity that he found that “simple little chine” a bit later but anyhow we have a very efficient and comfortable boat in her class.
