Ranger at speed

Ranger at speed

The supremacy of the Logan and Bailey families ended in 1938 when the Tercel brothers built the Ranger. The Tercels, of working-class, Dalmatian background, worked in a shelter beside their Ponsonby home. Through careful study of overseas designs they produced by far the fastest yacht in the Auckland fleet. The boat was 60 feet (18 metres) long, built of kauri, and had a three-skin diagonal construction.
