J-Yacht Ranger 1937
Built for Harold S. Vanderbilt in 1937 by Maine's Bath Iron Works, notable

was successfully defended. Designed by W. Starling Burgess and Olin J.
Stephens of Sparkman & Stephens. The "Ranger" measured 128 gross tons
with an overall length of 135 feet, her spinnaker sail is said to be the
largest sail ever made. This replica J-Yacht "Ranger" features a
beautiful antique finish in the original red and white, plank-on-frame
construction, hand sewn sails and brass fittings. Part of a
collectable A-Cup series that includes a certificate of authenticity.
