Update 2/13/2020: The boat was surveyed and sea trialed. This was the first survey/trial. Many prospective clients who previously saw the boat in person assumed she was too small to be seaworthy and stable. The sea trial proved otherwise. We were in about 4 foot chop from a storm that had just gone through, and the boat plowed right through it in a very tugboat-esque fashion. Quite confidence inspiring. Then we goosed the throttle and she went up on plane, skimming across the water right over the chop, at about 18 knots. Ocean spray, wipers going, very fun. About the most fun I have had on a powerboat ever, even more so than giant cruisers and express boats with their big motors and luxury accommodations, if for only just the motoring through the ocean part. Very intimate with the sea, yet stable and powerful. Loved it.

The survey turned up inop bow and stern thrusters. Probably from sitting or a ground wire issue due to some water in the bilge. Owner is ordering the appropriate services. Update 3/15/2020: Brand new bow thruster installed. Both thrusters operational.

The bottom looks like it was painted last week, even though the paint is original from date of delivery Jan 2017. Very clean.

...end of update.

Under 50 hours on this yacht.

Priced well under value. Owner unable to use the boat, due to business schedule.

This is a very high-tech vessel for her size. Fusion stereo, Garmin HD radar overlayed on plotter, Garmin auto pilot, tank monitor, smart ignition with fob, electronic shifter with cruise control, engine management system, bow and stern thrusters, factory solar with monitor, inverter, overboard macerator, refrigeration, hot water, LED lighting including infrared and accent lighting, and underwater lights, trim tabs, convertible dinette, convertible copilot seat to dinette seat, hidden 2nd stateroom under dinette, hybrid electric/alcohol stove, battery monitor, 4 windshield wipers, and much more.

No trailer.

Owner says, I had her built in early 2016, then she sat up in Washington in bubble wrap for about a year until my slip came available, which was January 2017. So this boat is only a bit over 3 years old.

If youre looking for a 25 foot well-equipped diesel tug this is the one.

Look at the details in the photos. A beautiful yacht ready to cruise, and at a significant cost difference vs new, which is over $155,000 with gas motor and without some of the expensive options on this yacht, and a smaller cabin. They dont make the diesel inboard 25 anymore. Only gas outboards.

Outstanding fuel efficiency. A nice-sized diesel cruiser that, unlike her gas-powered counterparts, has good range and low fuel costs per mile.

See picture of test results. Sample boat was Cummins 150HP so your results will vary.

Nautical mile range with 70 gallons: (not including 5 gallons reserve):

Speed 8 knots - 4 nautical miles per gallon - 280 nautical mile range.

Speed 15.5 knots - 2.6 NMPG = 180 NM range

And cruising a bit faster than most sailboats at 7 knots - 5 NMPG, the range is a whopping 350 nautical miles.

Top speed almost 20 knots when its needed.

Real cruising isas much about the journey as it is the destination and the Ranger R-25 SC delivers both. Designed to provide maximum comfort and versatility in a easy to own, easy to operate trailerable mini-yacht, the R-25 SC offers a full 8 6 beam for roomy on-deck areas and large interior space.
