The Ranger Tug R-23 – A Modern Classic…

The new Ranger Tugs R-23 is a much-anticipated addition to the award-winning lineup of Ranger Tugs. Powered by a standard 200 HP Yamaha outboard or optional 170 HP Volvo diesel Duoprop sterndrive, the R-23 bridges the gap between their popular R-21 EC and R-25 SC models. 

 

The first thing you will notice when looking at the new R-23 is the dramatic, curved windshield and visor, which is emphasized by several overhead skylights. There is no shortage of light or visibility onboard the R-23, which incorporates four opening roof hatches, sliding side windows, and an opening glass bulkhead, providing a very open and airy feeling inside and out. Opening portlights also allow for a nice cross breeze in the cabin.

 

The forward cabin on the R-23 has plenty of room for sitting around the teak table, separate sleeping for two or sleeping two together with the filler-cushion. The mid berth is great for kids or storage, and the dinette converts to a sleeper as the third berth. The well-appointed galley on the R-23 is standard with refrigerator/freezer, cooktop, and microwave. The forward head includes a marine toilet with holding tank, shower, sink, and mirror. 

 

The Ranger Tugs R-23 comes standard with Garmin 7610 GPS with Depth Sounder/Fish Finder and available with optional HDX radar. VHF to stay in touch, illuminated compass, cabin night light, cockpit and exterior side trail lighting, and their patented built-in safety trailering lights (brake, turn, and reverse) are all standard equipment making the R-23 ready to cruise. The cockpit on the R-23 is built to fish and ready to entertain with standard rod holders, optional downrigger pads & outlets, a folding double seat, and cockpit table.

 

The R-23 is perfect for overnighting or extended cruises. It incorporates many of the same amenities as a larger cruising yacht that until now were not offered on a boat of her size and price point. Whether you are new to boating or a seasoned captain, the R-23 is the perfect boat for your next adventure. Get on the water today in the new Ranger Tugs R-23!
