Ranger Tug R41

Postby Andrew Custis on Tue Jul 03, 2018 10:59 am

This has been a hard secret to keep for a long time but I think many are well aware that we have been working on a project for a new Ranger tug. Well, the time has come and we didn't hold back. A brand new Ranger Tug 41 has hit the water! The boat is 45' overall with a 14' beam. Twin Volvo IPS 400's standard with a washer / dryer, diesel heating, air conditioning, 9000KW Generator, two staterooms, an abundance of storage and some of the most innovative features you will find! Bruce will be assisting with posting some photos for you to see and more information about the boat will be released very soon. If you have any questions about the boat, I would like to ask that you email me directly and I will be happy to share more information. I can be reached at andrewcustis@rangertugs.com.

Happy boating!

That is exciting news Andrew! Do you (or the new owners) mind sharing where the new R41 will be cruising so we can keep an eye out for it?

Here are a few early shots of the just-splashed R-41. You can find more, with captions in the Album: R-41 Hull #1.

Thank you Bruce..... Niceee. :)

Hmmm.... blinds vs. curtains, right ?

Seems the Photo Album shows the R41 at Roche, right ?

Helm door has returned... :)

Is that a swing-pivoted double seat at the transom ?

You can't have too many windows/portholes.... ;)

At long last the reveal!!
Thank you for sharing. I know that this boat already has a line up of purchasers and you are behind on production before hull #1 hit the water, so again thank you for sharing as I know you do not need to push for sales.
It would be nice when time permits to see a list of all the specs and a layout.
Congratulations on the first Ranger R41 !!

That boat looks fantastic and appears to be the perfect sized move up from our R29. Just a few more years and we’re in. I’m glad the helm door has returned and I love the innovative features in that same appealing exterior visual. And the bed is finally the right size too! Congratulations RT on not giving up the 32+ market to Nordic Tugs any longer! Love the twin Volvo’s with joystick too. Looks like you guys have a winner in my book. I showed it to my wife and she said “look, our next boat”. We’ve has an RY25, then this RT29 and she never said that before. Congratulations! We can move up for more extended Puget Sound cruising, stay within this great brand, and keep the awesome customer service of Ranger Tugs- with the great Tugnuts forum. Am I dreaming?

I've been waiting to see the pictures of this new boat and look forward to seeing it in person. It's been about 2 1/2 yrs since passing Chessie (2010 R-29 Classic) to her new owner- so we can be patient until one arrives on east coast. In the meantime, we have an older 46 Grand Banks we're enjoying in the lower Chesapeake Bay.
Congrats on the new boat!
