Olivier van Meer developed a new sailing yacht for Puffin Yachts, the Puffin Ranger 49'' .
In this design over 10 years of Puffin experience is combined with highlights of several of our other succesful designs. Although the Puffin Classic is still popular and continous under construction, the Puffin Ranger is a concept for those who want to go a bit more extreme.
The succesful Puffin Classic range was the first concept with a real panoramic decksaloon combined with our famous centerboard system.
Now the optimum live aboard experience is even more exciting on the Puffin Ranger.
The protected cockpit with foldable watersport platform, the galley, the navigation area as well as the saloon are in full harmony combined on almost 1 floor level.
Sailing, watersports, coocking and living is brought to where the fun and social comfort is.
Cabins, sanitary, stores and workspaces are all downstairs.
Built in aluminium or corecell/epoxy the Puffin Ranger is available for very attractive price.
