Images onboard the classic J Class Yacht Ranger (J5) sailing off Newport Rhode Island.
The modern J Class Yacht is significantly different to 1930 versions. Nowadays, it has to conform to stringent safety regulations - bulkheads, escape hatches etc. It has to offer the ability to cross oceans with accommodation and all support services associated with a Super-yacht. All this is not easily packed into a long thin racing hull. Ranger was completed in late December 2003 and departed Denmark in early January 2004. The Ranger that sails today is a replica built to the original lines drawings in steel and launched at the Danish Yacht shipyard in Skagen, Denmark in 2003 recreating the look and feel of the existing J Class yachts Shamrock, Endeavour and Velsheda. The project was in development from September 1999 and its team of designers, naval architects and industry specialists designed and built Ranger to Lloyds Classification, the MCA Code of Practice, for the safety of large commercial yachts, and the J Class Association Rules. Ranger had an extensive refit led by Dykstra Naval Architects to optimize her performance in 2005/2006.
