1979 Sea Ranger 59 Trawler Yacht

Leros, Greece


This C&L Marine Sea Ranger 59 delivers the spacious inside and outside areas of a much larger yacht and the functionality of a modern trawler, without the excessive "new yacht" cost.

Extensively modernised and refitted by the current owners over 28 years of ownership. With a resilient construction of a solid fibreglass hull, white GRP superstructure, teak-laid main decks, custom-made carbon fibre hard top and swimming platform, the yacht offers style and durability, backed up by a thorough structural survey completed in 2023 (available on request).

Twin Detroit Diesel 8V71TA engines deliver 870 horsepower, while the Wesmar hydraulic stabilisers and thrusters offer stability and easy maneuvering. The yacht's self-sufficiency, powered by a Kohler 9Kva generator, ZF Marine electronic control system, a 1640W solar array, lithium batteries and a Spectra Newport MkII watermaker, allows her to stay at sea for extended periods without needing to dock at marinas.

Onboard, you'll find, sympathetically updated ensuite cabins, a well-appointed galley, and a spacious saloon with a Bose Acoustimas sound system, providing a comfortable and self-sustaining voyage.

With the C&L Marine Sea Ranger 59 Trawler yacht, you get to experience the blend of large spaces, modern amenities, and self-sufficiency at an unbeatable price.

The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht, you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.
