1975 Ranger 23

About this Sailboat:

Amanda is small enough to be manageable, but she was designed and built to cross oceans. With a full compliment of 12 sails, she’s fitted out for cruising and racing. She’s fast, having taken 2nd overall in 2009 Mug Race. She sleeps 2 and is a great weekender. New 6 hp, 4-cycle Tohatsu outboard (2009) with less than 50 hrs operating time. Her owner is stepping up in class and she is looking for a new skipper. Currently at Lamb’s in Ortega, the slip is also available. Call (# removed) for an appointment to look her over. You will not be disappointed!
