Promise is a 1978 Ranger 33 tall rig sloop designed by marine architect Gary Mull. With her fin keel, spade rudder and encapsulated keel, she is fast and easily handled on all points of sail. Her 130% Genoa on a new Profurl and Barient self-tailing winches makes her perfect for a couple or single-handed sailing. Most lines are led aft to the cockpit to line-clutches and Lewmar winches. Her M-16 Universal Diesel drives her easily and using 1/2 GPH at 1800-2000 RPM she is very efficient. With a full galley featuring a Force-10 propane stove, hot & cold pressurized water system plus filtration, she is perfect for extended trips in the Sea of Cortez or farther. The teak woodwork gives a rich warm feeling below deck. There is a custom mattress in the forward V-Berth as well bunks in the main salon. The spacious cockpit with a dodger, bimini and awning plus custom cushions and Magma Grill make the cockpit very comfortable to relax or entertain. “Promise” has been carefully restored during the past 3 years and is turnkey and ready to sail.

Buying a boat in Mexico can have some tax advantages in saving you state sales tax and the boat is already where you want to start cruising. When buying a boat in Mexico, all of the title transfer, paperwork, and funds transfers are handled in the United States by a Marine Documentation Services Company for your convenience and peace of mind.

The owners of La Paz Cruisers Supply and Brokerage are cruisers themselves and have been living and cruising aboard in Mexico since 2008. Our team has crossed oceans, sailed to the South Pacific, delivered catamarans from South Africa and
sailed around the Caribbean, Mediterranean and world. Our goal isn’t to waste your time, but to help you find a boat that fits your budget and dreams.
