The 47 Sea Ranger is a beautiful, sea worthy, and affordable twin engine, full keel trawler with a spacious two stateroom arrangement. She is a stout little ship with a warm homey interior.

The current owners purchased Sea Strider in 1991 and the new owners will benefit from this long history of proud ownership and professional care. Hand built in Taiwan by C&L Marine, the Sea Ranger compares well with similar vintage Grand Banks, Defever or Ocean Alexander. 

Her sea kindly hull, efficient diesel power, and her pilothouse design makes a simply wonderful Pacific Northwest cruising yacht.
