Broker's Comments

The Ranger Tugs line has revolutionized the trawler market by developing trailerable pocket trawlers that offer large-boat features and comfort for extended cruising. The R-29 has created excitement and achieved notable success in a short time and is much in demand. The R-29 is unique -- it's a boat that appeals to a wide range -- people new to boating, people moving up in size, and even people moving DOWN in size.

Imagine where your boating adventures could take you if you had the flexibility to trailer your trawler?

Waterline Boats / Boatshed Seattle is fortunate to offer this excellent example of a Ranger Tugs R-29 with its unbelievably complete equipment list and in superb condition.

A large cockpit, exceptional all-round visibility from the helm, a bright and airy interior, a roomy master stateroom, a large head/shower compartment, a private guest stateroom, and topside storage for all variety of water "accessories" are just some of the features. Plus it's awfully darned cute.

This boat has many options and custom features including a well-matched custom cockpit hardtop, optional exterior and interior lights, custom radar mast, generator, interior joinery, and entertainment system.

This boat, its customizations and its adventures have been extensively documented in the owner's blog:

A triple-axle EZ loader trailer is available for separate purchase.
