Most of us are quite enamoured with our classic (and nearly antique) yachts. Designed before the sport boat era, these sturdy craft were state-of-the-art production racers at the time. As the competing designs have evolved, the Rangers have held their own in handicap racing and will continue to be reliable racer-cruisers for many years to come.
As far as my R33 goes, I sometimes wish she had a little more space since she's our "apartment on the coast", especially as a 6'2" lug. I've gotten dangerously close to trading up to something with a stateroom (Beneteau First 36.3 or 37.5 or maybe a J35C, but I eventually sober up and realize it's a lot more fun to win all the local club races and the R33 is about as big a boat as I feel comfortable with single-handing, mostly around the dock. Of course I sail in an extreme backwater, where people don't see Volvo Open 60s, but most of the dock walkers comment on what a cool boat I have!
