All About Your Ranger 33

Rig Specifications

These are the specifications provided by the designers, but even from the factory, these boats may not be identical. The reason for this is that the sail industry often contracts manufacturing to different sources in order to achieve economies of scale. What this means is – your Ranger 33 may be more unique than you initially thought.

It’s important to note that boats are also frequently customized, so if you suspect that work has been done on yours, it’s best to take your own measurements. When ordering a sail, we will advise you if using the manufacturer’s specifications is appropriate, or if we require you to complete our own measurement forms.

Sail Plan

The Ranger 33 features a high-performance sail plan, with a large mainsail and a high aspect ratio jib.

While the default sailplan is still a good choice for many Ranger 33 owners, your boat may have been modified, or the location you plan on sailing in may mean the design and options need to change. It’s best to talk to a sail consultant about your upcoming sailing plans so we can tailor a design and quote for your specific needs.
