Kick off the new year right and see this all new Ranger R-27 in Chicago & Milwaukee

The start of 2018 brings the Chicago, Boat, RV & Sail Show  at McCormick Place & the Milwaukee Boat Show both taking place in January.  We will be attending these shows and have a terrific line up of our new boats for display including this stunning Hero Red R-27 Luxury Edition that just arrived to our Grand Haven location.  We have been anticipating the arrival of this new model and all the innovated features this New Ranger Tugs R-27 has to offer. We will also be displaying the popular Ranger Tugs R-23. This is a terrific opportunity to get out of the cold and come see why these two new models from Ranger Tugs are so hot in the market!

Maximum Usability, Value, and FUN.


 Cruising without compromise  is the name of the game for the all-new 2018 R-27 from Ranger Tugs. Straight from the factory, your new R-27 will be outfitted to cruise, fish, and play in comfort and style. Powered by the efficient and popular Yamaha F300 outboard motor, the new R-27 doesn’t waste time delivering you and your family to your next adventure. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that the included Garmin 7612 Chartplotter will guide you safely on your passage and that when you arrive, the bow thruster will make docking a non-event.



The curved front windshield and overhead glass atrium provide beautiful 360 degree views and generous light throughout the salon. Open the aft glass bulkhead in tandem with any of the hatches, windows, or port lights to deliver a fresh breeze throughout the cabin. Chefs will be delighted to cook in the full galley or to simply grill on the removable electric Kenyon grill. When taking in a gorgeous sunset, you and your guests can enjoy the view from the spacious cockpit or from the new double lounge seat on the bow of the R-27.

The new R-27 from Ranger Tugs is designed and built to offer maximum usability, value, and FUN. When you buy a Ranger Tug you’re not just buying a boat, you’re joining our family.

2018 Ranger R-27 having fun on Spring Lake!




This new arrival 2018 Ranger R-27 was ordered for a customer and we decided to test her out in December...in Michigan!  This new model is powered by a Yamaha 300hp outboard and cruised nicely at 27 mph.  A little unusual to be boating so late in the year but why not take every opportunity to get out there and have some fun!
