Ranger 23 $2,900

Only $2,900 Located Ft Myers, FL
Turnkey and ready to go! Rigged to be sailing in 15 minutes! I’ll provide lessons too. I have completed the USSailing Keel Boat Instructor program and I have a 50 TON USCG license.
Safe, seaworthy, and fast! This classic Gary Mull designed sloop is a wonderful boat to sail and I am offering sailing lessons. It’s a perfect day sailor, weekender, or PHRF racer. I bought the boat in 2003 in Bradenton and sailed her for years with no motor before sailing her to Ft Myers with my daughter. I added a new 2HP Honda 4 stroke air cooled out board and the adjustable stainless steel motor mount. It starts on the first pull. I also painted the hull, mounted the swim ladder, replaced the standing rigging, re-covered the cushions, and renewed much of the wiring.

Looks like a nice example of one of the great small yachts of the era. Some one should snap it up!

Great little boats, a sailing school where I used to teach had one.

Re: Ranger 23 $2,900

Is it a fixed keel boat?

I live about 1 hr. away and would like to come see it. Sent a private message yesterday, but not sure if I did it right, I just joined the forum. Contact me if you will.

Re: Ranger 23 $2,900

I joined this forum the first day I discovered it about a week ago, saw this boat listed, and have been trying to contact the seller with no success. Maybe I made a bad first impression when I sent him a pm. I'm just looking for my first boat to get my feet wet, no pun intended. Has anyone made contact with this seller and found out more. The idea of buying a sailboat and lessons sounds great. Thanks
