Ranger, coined the Steadysailor, was designed by Chuck Paine to efficiently travel 200 plus miles a day in practically any conditions. Working off this stable and functional design, Lyman-Morse built a purposeful and sound yacht to compliment her form.

Ranger is currently cruising south to Florida from the Chesapeake and is available for viewing along the way.

Chuck Paine was commissioned to perfect the concept for this ideal ocean cruiser. Designed to be a true motorsailor, she is a comfortable cruising yacht capable of a steady 10 knots whether under sail or power or both. Her custom interior is "relatively" simple and optimized for two-couple cruising. Her hull construction is of rugged welded aluminum. RANGER is equipped with a pair of hydrodynamic stabilizers ("birds") that when lowered into the water from the beefed-up side vanes help to eliminate roll and provide stability at sea. This is superior yacht capable of cruising the oceans of the world in refined splendor and comfort regardless of conditions encountered.

Layout and Design

Hull & Deck

Hull

The hull, frames and plating are made out of 5083 aluminum with a hard chine.  The long, wide and shallow keel offers stability and a low place tto house the engine (allowing the engine's weight to act as additioonal ballast).  Fuel tankage is also located in the bilge. The hammered hull, though more costly to build, ensured superior aesthetics has a sanblasted finish.  Ranger has a red sheer stripe protected by a practical aluminum rub rail.

  • Fold out & down transom door allows for easy access to the aft cockpit via the large swim platform.
  • 4 watertight bulkheads

Deck

The deck is strong and features plenty of space to store smaller craft for exploring, excercising and sailing. She currently carries a kayak, a sailing dory, a wind surfer and an Avon Tender, all in proper chaulks for quick deployment and security.  Fashioned out of sandblasted aluminum, the wide side decks, cabin tops and fore deck are covered in "Tread-Master".  The aft cockpit is covered with a aluminum framed canvas overhead.

Designer Comments

The Steadysailor is a name we coined for this new type of yacht. With that name, you would expect her to be a motor yacht with a steadying sail, and she is certainly that. She is, also, the embodiment of the term motor-sailor. She was designed and optimized for motor-sailing, which is what the majority of pure cruising sail-boats do much of the time anyway. All experienced sailors know what a difference in speed is made just by having the engine ticking over slowly when under sail, or the sails up and drawing when under power. The Steadysailor is intended to always have the engine running, so that the yacht travels at a given speed(say 10 knots) at all times, no matter the state of the wind. Thus she will make good 240 nautical miles per day, or over 1000 statute mile every four days no matter what. Steady speed rather than the presence of a steadying sail, is what gives this design its name.
