Plans and Life have made changes...with a heavy heart I've made the decision to sell SV-Ranger to someone who can finish refurbishing her.
Much major work has been completed, Definitely my Loss will be your gain.
Brief description of work performed:
A. Muir Cougar Electric Windlass rebuilt, new marine grade wiring, new IMTRA Solenoid, New Breakers, New isolated Windlass Battery. Has deck mounted foot switches. New remote switch installed at helm. (Control Windlass both at Bow and at Wheel)

J. All fresh water plumbing lines replaced with new color coded PEX water lines, new faucets at Head and Galley sinks, new 6 Gallon Water Heater that has been fitted to operate on only 400 watts AC, or can operate on 12 vdc power direct from solar panels.
K. Installed new Lighting In helm area including New nightime Red navigation light. (Did not use LED's at helm due to U.S.C.G. warning about LED lights..suggest you google that).
L. Installed New mini electric high efficiency clothes washing machine...only uses 4 gallons of water to wash a load of clothes!.
M. New Microwave Oven, 700 watts.
N. Installed new double birth in fore cabin! Over 6'4" of leg room!.
O. New bottom job, New Zincs, Hull new Awlgrip Snow White paint job from water line up to rub rail cap. She sparkels like diamonds...all work professionally performed by expert fiberglass and paint marine contractor.
P. Yanmar 3Qm30 diesel engine showing just under 900 hours has been gone through, New Anodes, Water Thermostat, New Dual Fuel Filter/Water separator system installed, New Sea Strainer. (May need new Starter Solenoid just started acting up).
So much more, Must See to appreciate.
SV Ranger has custom Radar Arch/Dingy Davit system,
Complete Raymarine Instrument System including Radar Dome, SmartPilot x10 course computer, E120 MFD/Chartplotter, Wind, Depth, Speed Instruments And New Airmar DST800 Triducer.
New cockpit shower with hot and cold running water.
All Engine controls have been relocated to Helm for Easy Access by Single Or Short Handers.
Many Many more parts and accessories in boxes to go with the boat.
SV Ranger is currently located in a slip behind a private residence, electric and water is available monthly fee only $200.00 per month.
SV Ranger has 130% Genoa, Main Sail and Spinnaker. Genoa and Main in very good condition, never debagged Spinnaker.
SV Rangers Standing Rigging was replaced 8 years ago, however she was never sailed since then. She had stayed stored on the Hard due to prior owners health issues...So standing rigging has not yet experienced any stress of actual sailing.
SV Ranger has 200 feet of galvanized 3/8" Chain, and app: 600 feet of high quality Rode on board.
Fortress high tensile Anchor and CQR, a Bruce may also be available.
Will be taking many pictures in coming days and will be happy to Em them to you.

While SV Ranger is still considered a project boat, she is sailable and liveaboard able.

I estimate another $7,500.00 will need to be spent on her to get her to the condition of a 45,000.00 dollar Morgan 382. Much of the work needed now is cosmetic in nature as the majority of mechanical systems have been addressed....
With the above being said, and with all the work and effort already performed I feel an initial asking price of $25,000.00 is the point to begin negotiating sales price. This price reflects the work to be completed and still afford you a nice 10k or more of equity in her when completed.

No Survey has been performed, You can schedule and provide payment for a Survey if you feel it is needed. Everything about the boat is readily viewable and All questions will be answered to best of ability. All work that has been performed will be pointed out and All new wiring has been labeled and All new manuals have been stored...

Please respond with your full contact Info.
