    Hello – I sail in Puget Sound and the Salish Sea and am seeking a Kent Ranger 26 to call my own. Is there one for me out there?

      Hello David,

      I don’t know if it has been sold yet, but the Sundagger in Portland, OR was for sale a couple months ago.

      Good luck!

    Hi Bruce – I placed a WTB ad on Craig’s List in Portland, Vancouver and Seattle and all I got were the usual phishing trollsters. I fear Sundagger is now in the hands of some lucky so-and-so or the seller came to his senses.

    So I continue to dream…

      David,

      Sundagger was brokered by Passion Yachts in Portland and is listed as sold. G T Osborne was trying to sell Serenity with trailer in Anachortes WA. You can message him through the KR26 Yahoo group I believe.

      I am in the same situation as you, on the prowl. Have not found it yet but am planning on ‘borrowing’ Bruce’s boat for 3 or 20 years (I live an hour West of him).

      If you cannot find Gerald’s contact info I probably have it somewhere in this machine.

        I’ve installed a special deterrent security system on the Innisfree call the “NOLES” Guardian Repellor X2. I should keep most riff-raff away, but I might need something more in your case! 😉

    My 1978 Kent Ranger 26 is for sale. 2014 Yamaha 9.9; Lying at Seattle.
    I want to offer it here to the Kent Ranger community first.
    I’m keeping my Minto and R20!

    I am hoping anyone interested in a Kent Ranger 26 will see this message. I’ll probably post on Craigslist over the weekend but wanted to give the “family” first chance.

    The boat is lying at our dock in South Park Marina. It has a new (2014) Yamaha 9.9 (44 hrs), three headsails, and bimini. This boat was formerly “Spontaneity” and “Green Eyes”.

    I also have a new spare centerboard pendant and the limited-edition bronze casting that replaces a corroded stanchion sheave housing (see earlier thread on the problem this can result in, and the correction the casting does). Our 2012 survey determined the original housing to be sound and we have not experienced any issues so the new casting has never been installed.

    We love this boat and I’m proud to say I currently have three vessels from the factory, all circa mid/late ’70’s (Minto, R20, and the 26). I’m keeping the Minto and 20 but my Executive Officer says “upsize the cruiser”.

    Respectfully,
    David Rynning

    We’re sailing her as Gallop, although not “officially” renamed yet. Search Seattle craigs list on “Kent Ranger 26”, posted on Sunday. I have lots more pics of course.

    Our R26 is now asking $9500, appears in 48 Degrees North. I will list the boat in October and move it to Everett but am flexible on price until then.

    Hi we dispose of many sailboats a year and just came across which I believe is a Ranger 26′. I am letting you know if you need parts we will probably start next week at some point to strip it. The wood is in very bad shape but portholes look good rudder and bow rail. Also comes with a mast.
