We had a real close look at a Ranger 30 during our last boat hunt... I would not put it in the same category as the earlier Mull 26/29/33 series. Usually pricier than a R29 but not necessarily a better boat (but, of course, somewhat newer)
The one we looked at was clean enough, but all the hull liner material (carpet..) in the forward berth area was sodden, and it was clear that there were some serious deck leaks at stanchions etc.
The rig was oversized in section and seemed heavy for the boat (good or bad in that depending on your priorities) Nevertheless we did give it some serious consideration but realized that 30 feet was just going to be too small for us, as we were downsizing from 40.
