Broker's Comments

Aquastar design and build their boats to got to sea. Regularly found in commercial use as pilot boats, police launches and rescue craft they're well know for their strong construction, quality fit-out and kindly sea keeping abilities.

This aft cabin version of the Ocean Ranger 38 provides great accommodation below, not just versatile and useable but extremely attractive too. Above decks she feels safe and solid with a layout which works well both on passage and alongside.

This particular example has been a lucky lady, having been owned firstly by one family and professionally maintained and latterly by a meticulous and very knowledgeable owner who keeps her on a private berth at the end of his garden. She has been out of the water in June 2016 and is fully serviced, cleaned and ready for sea. She is due a little cosmetic attention to the exterior gelcoat around the wheelhouse and this will be undertaken by the owner at his next opportunity but she is very much in use and being enjoyed at the moment as such a lovely boat should be
