cruising motor yacht / trawler / hard-top / aluminum
57'01" (17.4 m)
We built this 58' Steadysailer for Craig Stevens. She was the first aluminum yacht to be totally constructed under our supervision at our 12,7500 sq ft Lyman-Morse Metal Fabrication facility located a short distance from our main yard. (Read more about LM Metal Fabrication here.)Craig, who had at one time been a member of the John Alden design staff, commission Chuck Paine to perfect his concept for the ideal ocean cruiser. Designed to be a true motorsailer, 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. We are very excited about this project which offers a superior yacht capable of cruising the oceans of the world in refined splendor and comfort regardless of conditions encountered.
