Y.CO has listed the 77.73 metre Lone Ranger for sale. This spectacular vessel started her life in 1973 as an ocean going tug. For her first twenty years she worked towing oil platforms, floating docks and other ships around the world as well as salvaging casualties, including tankers, freighters and bulk carriers. She was one of the largest and most powerful tugs of that time, often spending up to one hundred days straight on station in the North Atlantic.
In 1994 she was purchased by a knowledgeable yachtsman and under the guidance of Kusch Yachts in Hamburg, Germany, she underwent a thorough conversion into a private yacht. In 1997 she was sold and gain underwent several refits in Miami that included the engine room, bridge area, deck and interior accommodation areas. This refit was extensive and was designed to give the owner years of comfortable world cruising.
Lone Ranger has a 31,000 mile range at 12 knots, with Quantum stabilizers (installed in 2004) for greater comfort. In the last decade Lone Ranger has cruised the world several times, including a trip to Antarctica and the Arctic polar ice cap - she can break ice! She is ideally suited for cruising all oceans in comfort and style, yet keeping a low profile. Her interior features a large master suite with private owner’s library/study and four spacious guest staterooms, all ensuite. The large open deck space, including a basketball court, swimming pool and helicopter pad, plus her ability to carry a 40’ cabin cruiser and numerous small boats, adds to her many amenities. This vessel’s capabilities are unlimited.
Lone Ranger is asking $ 20,000,000.
