BANGORANG is a fully equipped blue-water cruising vessel that recently completed a 6 yr Pacific cruise and is ready to go again! She was completely refit in 2012 with many upgrades including:
- New standing and running rigging
- New large hardtop bimini
- New solar panels
- New latest electronics
- New Spectra water maker
- New refrigeration
- New safety gear
During the cruise, BANGORANG has been maintained to a very high standard and further upgraded with new engines, saildrives, kitchen countertops and a full cockpit enclosure.
With long mini-keels, balanced rudders and an efficient sail plan, BANGORANG performs well on or off the wind, with a comfortable motion at sea. The flat decks, high rails, jacklines and plentiful handholds create a safe environment on deck. While on passage, the networked navigation and autopilot control allows comfortable watch keeping from either the protected helm or the salon nav station and the off-watch crew stay rested on custom spring mattresses in both master cabins.
The large hardtop bimini and roll-down cockpit enclosure maintains the extended outdoor living space in all weather and the galley-up configuration ensures that the cook stays engaged with the rest of the crew. Also, the value of two redundant heads and showers on a boat cannot be overstated.
Finally, when it's time for maintenance, the large workroom in the forward port cabin guarantees that your tools and spares are always close at hand and you'll never leave a messy project spread out on the salon table. This toolroom can be converted back to its original configuration as a fourth cabin if desired. Many tools and spare parts are included with this boat.
