Year: 1913

*****See WN RAGLAND in YACHTING MAGAZINE (april ’11). **** Please do not consider Ragland’s lower than market price a quality indicator. She is aggressively priced by a realistic seller, in an effort to avoid a lengthy marketing period. WN RAGLAND is an exceptional yacht, in exceptional condition. In regard to value, she is offered at a price that presents you with the opportunity to own a vessel very, very stable in value, and not vulnerable to the depreciation which affects the other choices you may be considering. There have been many coffee table books compiled over the years which show uncommon ships, yachts, and boats. WN RAGLAND is worthy of a coffee table book, devoted solely to her. Originally built to haul GRANITE in the northern seas, W N RAGLAND is 101 feet in length overall, with a length on deck of 77 feet. A “Rubenesque girl”, she weighs in at 280,000 lbs. on the scales. She is a United States Coast Guard documented vessel. Her Jones Act Exemption deems her legal for USA Coastal Trade. WN RAGLAND has been a privately owned, pampered, cruised, enjoyed, and maintained without regard for cost by entertainer, Neil Young. The experience aboard Ragland is awesome, but not pretentious. She provides an atmosphere which is conducive to everyone feeling comfortable, at peace, relaxed, and content. She is a great barefoot boat. Hard soled shoes are welcome as well….no need to fuss, or greet your guests with a bunch of rules and orders. Every part of the day on Ragland is special, from morning coffee, through the cocktail and dinner hour when you anchor at day’s end. I have seen the most eclectic groups of people and families all find both individual appreciation and special moments enjoyed as groups as well. It is fun to see cell phones take the 2 day migration from pockets to stateroom drawers. Even when moored in an urban setting, Ragland casts her spell of contentment on those aboard. It is a very surreal experience. Her galley is a wonderful place for those who love to cook, and she provides an experience which simply cannot be reproduced in any other ship’s galley. No one forgets their Ragland experience. WN RAGLAND lends herself superbly to world cruising, local cruising, and when at the dock, or a local anchorage, a wonderful home.It is my intention that you have no surprises of any kind subsequent to your acquisition of WN Ragland. The key to owning a wooden vessel is in buying a high quality one. Starting with a completely sound vessel reduces ownership costs to a predictable fraction of what it costs when you buy a vessel with “needs or issues”. If you maintain paint, you do not have to repair wood. Paint, varnish and associated materials for Ragland’s exterior cost less than $1000 per year. At this latitude she goes through 6 qt. sized cans of varnish per year, one gallon of satin white paint, a qt. of flat black for her trim, anchor, etc. Ragland is hauled every two years for bottom paint, zincs, etc. Her last haul was $5000. This included paint, zincs, lay days, white hull paint, and labor cost. Depending on location, plan on 5-7k per haul, every two years. A diver for $100 twice a year for barnacles and prop zinc for the in-betweens. It is not necessary to stop use for extended maintenance, as she is maintained as a routine, just as
