Definitely not trailerable--and will be interesting with the Volvo IPS 400, may not be a shoal draft boat....

If you have to ask, you can't afford it... Smile

Aye.

I e-mailed Andrew Curtis and his response ref price, draft and line drawing, was "we will be releasing specs and pricing soon."

I'm sure they wont have a problem with finding buyers. The Tug Nuts are passionate and many are probably chomping at the bit for a bigger boat.

The 41 will be a huge step in price. I guess more than $I 600,000. Also no longer trailerable, and you are competing against a number of other luxury builders. However, I believe that they will keep the price point under some of that competition. The ISP 400 drives are another factor. They offer a lot, but can be high maintenance. The set of engines is going to be $100,000. The engine has the dual props in front of the 360* rotation drive, steering and controls are all computerized electric systems. Imagine hitting a log with one or both of those drives:



You are pulling 300 hp out of a 3.7 liter (226 cu inch) engine...Fuel consumption will be high. (20 gallons an hour for both engines at cruising speed of 3000 RPM from volvo tables.) Generally the rule of thumb is 1 hp per cubic inch. .. We don't know what the tankage is yet.

It will be interesting.

Well, this puts them right in the same market as American Tug and Nordic, also made in the PNW. I wonder if they're using the same hull fabricator?

The medium? trawler type market was saturated but must be doing well now. There was a whole line up of that size for sale at Anacortes a couple of years age. I don't know how many of the TugNuts are looking to add 10-15' to their boat length.

Well, it has been a long time since I have visited this site but I can tell you that we have many old friends that we still look forward to seeing around the PNW waters and boat shows around the country. I just sold a 19 C-dory to a long time friend of mine that used to build these very cool boats with us back in the early 2000's! I now have a Ranger 23 and him and I both cruise all over. We just spent three nights on Lake Roosevelt, Alderbrook resort, Sydney, British Columbia and more. We have had a blast in our boats and am proud to be cruising with a builder and boat that I have had a big passion for over the years! If you see the Kaes N Point on the water, be sure to stop me and say hi!

The New 41 is one special boat and as Bob said, it is equipped with the IPS 400 diesel engines, Dynamic positioning, washer dryer, Seakeeper Gyro and much more. The starting price of the boat with MANY options is $749,937. This will include things such as two TV's (50" that comes out of the dash in the cabin), washer dryer, davit to lift a dinghy on top, 26" Garmin chart plotter, AIS, Autopilot and pretty much fully equipped. If anyone has any direct questions, please dont hesitate to reach out to me directly. So far, build timing is about 1 year out but we are working on improving that as we fulfill orders from current owners.

Hope everyone is well!

In my opinion, just my opinion, the Ranger boats seem to have a "toy-like" quality to them. Feature packed, shiny, and almost should be sold at Costco. Hard to argue with their market success however.

I see that you are local to the area. One of these days you ought to stop by so I can show you how they are built. Having built the Cdory for many years, I think you would be impressed with the techniques and modern construction we use. Very often I tell people that we donít build boats for everyone so I completely respect your opinion. My toy 23 does the trick for me with 200 hours on it, 2400NM and three trips to British Columbia including a 14 day adventure to Desolation Sound all in six months of ownership.


As long as your out boating and you love what you own, thatís all that matters to me!

Happy cruising.

Classy answer Andrew!

I must say, as an owner of a R-23, I 'm really liking and enjoying this new boat. I'm not quite attached to it like we were to C-Dancer but it's hard to break a 12 year connection to your first boat. Island Time is a fantastic boat and definitely not just a shiny new toy. She handles adverse water conditions like a champ, very smooth and solid. She's comfortable but stout, very well-built. Does she have a lot of bells and whistles? Absolutely but paraphrasing Andrew, to each his own. BTW, Andrew and the rest of the Ranger Tug staff offer fantastic customer service and support, definitely standing by their product. I wish the current C-Dory ownership would take a page from Ranger Tugs.

As the old commercial says, "Try it. You'll like it!"
