The Hunter Ranger 265 has modern lines and the it's hull shape is renown for stablility and great handling. This is complimented by a very easy to handle rig with self-tacking jib. Most Ranger 265s were built with bilge keels although fin keel versions were also built. The round-bilged hull form flattens into a near-chine aft, improving downwind stability and giving enough volume aft to provaide a double aft-cabin. Bilge-keel versions have a remarkably high angle of vanishing stability (AVS) * of 147°.

This superb family yacht packs a lot of accommodation into her length, with 4 adult plus two childrens berths, and 6 foot plus headroom. The joinery on this yacht looks very good and she appears to have been very well cared for by her fastidious owner. The cooker has been replaced and so has the upholstery been changed in 2013. She smells and looks a treat.
