    For reference, here is some background info on the Ranger 30 -


    And a brief mention on Wiki -

    Mantaray, re the boat that you are interested in, does she have an Atomic 4 petrol engine, or has she since been re-engined with a diesel?

    Re 'blue water' - pretty much any small cruising sailboat can be made 'blue water capable' - but often at a (significant) price.
    What type of blue water sailing are you thinking of?
