Ranger 43 Aft cabin Flybridge

1990 Ranger 43 Aft Cabin liveaboard motor cruiser in stunning condition for age, now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.

This beautifully kept motor cruiser was launched in 1990 and has only had 2 long term owners. Currently owned by a lady that lives onboard and keeps the boat spotless. The feeling of space is immediate when you first step onto the large marlin board swim platform. This would be an ideal spot to dangle toes in the water at sundowners.

Moving up the wide runged ladder takes you to the aft cockpit level deck area. There is room here for several lounge chairs, BBQ and grand entertaining. The upper helm station is forward and has forward facing cushioned seating for 3, a sun lounge that would seat 4, plus the additional skipper's chair. It's a large flybridge area with opening clears that has 360-degree wraparound views. All of the controls are duplicated at the lower helm.

Entry to the main saloon is from an aft doorway or the sliding door alongside the lower helm. The main saloon has beautiful teak and holly flooring, lounge chairs and currently has a removeable office set up.

The aft cabin is a beauty. A centreline Island queen sized bed with wardrobes and drawers everywhere. On the port side is a fully enclosed shower in the bathroom with large vanity and electric toilet to a holding tank.

Access to the twin 375hp Caterpillar engines and Onan Generator is also in the aft cabin via a hinged door.

The saloon flooring has additional access via 4 large lift-up sections.

Moving forward from the saloon is the large galley area which has a very nice feel about it. A full- sized upright fridge and separate freezer gives you the feeling of being at home. Off to the starboard side is the ensuite for the forward accommodation and guests which also has a fully enclosed shower, electric toilet with holding tank and vanity.

The V berth is huge and has a single bunk to the port side above it plus an opening deck hatch.

Outside of the boat, there is wide teak walkways down both sides with sturdy stainless-steel railings all the way around for ultimate safety. The foredeck is a very large flat area and uncluttered which makes for easy anchoring. 4 Fenders stow in stainless baskets on the rails. The foredeck is an ideal sun pad or bean bag area.

This is a fine example of a roomy liveabord style motor cruiser that won’t last long on the market. A 2019 out of water survey is available upon request.
