Sindur IV is based on the well known Northshore Ranger 36 but was built as a one off by Camper and Nicholson. Has had loving and diligent owners and has wanted for nothing to keep her up to date and in pristine condition and trim. Two en-suite double cabins, saloon and wheelhouse make this a very comfortable and spacious craft. Recent professional modifications and replacement of equipment make Sindur IV a very desirable gentleman's yacht.
Large aft cabin which originally had two single bunks has been remodelled to incorporate a full size double berth. Many lockers and cabinets for storage of personal gear. En-suite heads compartment with electric sea toilet, wash hand basin and shower facilities.
Wheelhouse with helm and navigator seats and bench seat to aft and starboard for crew. Sliding doors lead from port and starboard to side decks.
Forward of the wheelhouse is the galley area to starboard and a saloon with table and large oval shaped table.

They run economically and very smoothly. A comfortable cruising speed is in the 10 Knots range. The original Ranger 36 would be capable of 20 Knots but Sindur is a heavier built boat.

The following is some info about Sindur IV
A Kent yachtsman retired from sailing and wanted a purposeful motorboat. He liked the style of the Ranger 36 built by Northshore in the 1970s but could not find a good one. So, he commissioned Camper and Nicholsons to find the moulds, modify it and build him a one off. The result was Sindur IV. She is number IV, not because there are other boats called Sindur – he had a two race horses called Sindur I and Sindur II and his sail boat called Sindur III.
Sindur is much heavier than the original Northshore boats. The original Ranger 36’s could manage speeds in the 20’s knots. However Sindur is much heavier and she has a top speed of about 14 kts when light. She is best cruised at around 9 kts when laden.
Sindur had a great deal of work done in 2006 by Suffolk Yacht Harbour at Levington and this work featured in Motor Boat and Yachting. This included a re-wire, extra fuel tank etc etc.
A truly stunning example of these classic motor cruisers. Built by Camper & Nicholson to a very high standard, the Ranger hull has a proven track record of build quality, excellent sea keeping, spacious interior and long range cruising capacity. Following an extensive refit in 2006/7 by Suffolk Yacht Harbour and again in 2015 by Harbour Marine Services, Southwold, she is now in quite excellent condition and ready to go for this season. A rare chance to own a beautiful vessel which attracts admiring looks wherever she goes.
