UPDATE on the NEW KISMET!
Having sold our Ranger Tug R27 a few months ago, we ordered a new Ranger Tug R29S, we’ll take delivery in August 2017. So, we are spending the summer boatless! Lots to do at home while we prepare to travel west to Seattle to take possession. This tug, with a sportier look and a Volvo Penta diesel engine, will take us to some exciting cruising destinations with a quieter, more stable ride. The new tug will be just a little bit bigger, but still trailerable. Looking forward to a little more room to accommodate our growing grandchildren. One of our new goals is to share our love of boating with them for many years to come.
Construction photos to come soon!
Two Long-Distance Cruisers Find the
Upside of Downsizing to a Trailerable Trawler
Jim and Lisa Favors were avid boaters in the Eastern USA for over 20 years before they bought a trailerable trawler. They spent the first year of retirement cruising the 6,000-mile Great Loop route on a 40′ trawler. One year turned into five years of cruising as live-aboards. With another Loop trip under their belts. Their mission soon became a desire to share with others the joys of long-distance cruising.
“We want to help people discover this rewarding lifestyle! Extremely excited to continue our boating adventures on a trailerable trawler – a Ranger Tugs R27.” Flexibility, mobility and affordability – trailerable boating is the wave of the future.
“We use our tug as an RV when traveling to cruising destinations, staying at RV campgrounds all over the country. We can now cruise waterways unavailable to bigger boats. Our initial concerns of downsizing were easily set to rest once we headed out on the water in our new and improved Kismet.” – Jim & Lisa Favors Read More
