Ranger Tugs announced the delivery of the 100th Ranger Tug 29 to her new owners.

The 100th boat was sold by Marc Grove, owner of Wefings Marine, the Apalachicola, Fla.-based Ranger Tugs dealer. He was also responsible for the sale of the first R29 in 2009.

Grove sold the 100th hull at the 2011 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show to new owners Ruth and Wally Naset, who will take delivery in Summerland Key, Fla., and plan to cruise their home waters in the Florida Keys and beyond.

“It's a rewarding experience to be a part of selling and delivering hull Nos. 1 and 100 of the R29. Over the years, the entire lineup has been through various improvements and changes that make them as comfortable, fuel-efficient and maneuverable as possible,” Grove said in a statement.
