another year another new ranger
I am picking up my new 521 Ranger Cup on Saturday and I have to tell you Ranger has never let me down. But more importantly, the staff at Bedford Sales has always exceeded my expectations and has never let me down.
It is nice to buy a boat from a dealer that equals the quality and service that a Ranger boat delivers.
I traded my 2000 518 in on a 2001 520 then traded for a 2002 205 and now a 2003 521. On everyone of those transactions, not only did I get awesome performance and realiability from the boats, but I received that and more from the team at Bedford Sales in Morris ,IL.
Thanks Ranger Boats!
I have wanted a Ranger for as long as I can remember and finally I had the opportunity to get one.
I have a 2002 195 dual console with 200hp Merc and so far I have loved every minute of it... first trip out I had a limit in the well and it ended up being the best fishing day I have ever had...both because of the fish and the comfort of fishing out of a real boat...
No more look-a-likes for me...EVER!!! Thanks Ranger
My 1996 R70
Iwould like to thank all the employees that work in the Service Department at Ranger for the GREAT work they have done on my '96 R70. As I expected my boat came back looking like it did the day I first purchased it.
I am so proud to own a Ranger and that Ranger does stand by their boats. Their loyalty to their Ranger owners is as good as GOLD!!
Thank you, especially to Mike Shelton, for all your help. It's your attitude and sincerity that shows what Ranger is all about and makes us proud to be Ranger owners.
Thank You Again:
James B./Brenda W.
A special "thanks" to Sonja and Howard at Lake Sara Marina in Effingham Illinois for all of their help in locating my Commanche 518.
They are what owning a Ranger Dealership should be.
WHAT A CADILLAC
HELLO RANGER OWNERS!
I JUST PURCHASED A 1996 482VS COMANCHE WITH A 1996 175 MERCUCY EFI MOTOR. THIS BOAT LOOKS BRAND NEW AND NOT A SCRATCH ON IT! I CAN NOT BELIVE THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL THAT RANGER HAS DONE.IT'S NOT THE FASTEST BOAT ON THE LAKE BUT IT HAS ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLE I'LL EVER NEED.
PLEASE TEST DRIVE A RANGER BEFORE BUYING ANOTHER BOAT. IT'S WORTH THE WAIT.
THANKS RANGER FOR MAKING MY BASS FISHING COME TRUE. WHAT A GREAT STEREO AND WHAT A GREAT CADILLAC.
The new 155- thanks
I just purchased a 2003 Ranger 155SV. As a new boat owner and a woman, I'd like personel thank the Ranger pro staff and the staff at Boat Works, CT for all the time they spent with me, going over every inch of this boat.
I found with other manufactors, their staff was reluctant to speak with me about their boats. I had been researching bass boats for a year to find the right one for me.
My first contact with Ranger was at the Worcester Boat Show in MA. Bruce, on the pro staff working the show, spent about 45 minutes showing me everything on the new 155 - when other manufactors left me standing there. He pointed me to Boat Works Open House. He, and 2 other Rangers Pros, spent two hours with me at the open house. The Boat Works staff were also excellent to deal with.
I can't wait to get her out on the water!
If I can advise any women looking to buy an awesome boat, and deal with people who treat you right, go to Ranger! If you're in New England, head to Boat Works!
Thanks Ranger and thank you to Boat Works!
Is there any boat remodeling companies?
I have a boat made in the 70's and it runs great. I want to find a companie that can remodel it so i runs good in 10 yrs. i live in fl..
All rolled into one!
After years of fishing out of several other boats I finally took the plunge on a 1999 Ranger 519vs with a Johnnyrude 225. After all those years of listening to people say, "Oh this boat rides like a Ranger" I thought, "why not run one?"
I have run several other name brand boats and beleive me none of them ride like my Ranger! The VS hull on the 519 is as heavy as lead.
I call mine "the barge" - it handles rough water like a barge. But the boat has a feel of a sports car. It is so nimble, it's scary.
With the 225 ficht it runs a dead-on 70 mph. And in rough, white capping water you can run it 70 mph. Other boats will run faster of course, but when the water gets rough notice which boats are backing off the throttle. It won't be a Ranger.
When the tournaments blast off and the water gets churned up and the big river barges are loaded, I will guarantee that your Ranger will get you there first. I have blasted off in 45th place in winds that were severely dangerous and the lake just rolling and on 20 to 30 mile runs I will pass much faster boats who blasted off in the top 10 because you don't have to back off the throttle. It's amazing.
LET'S GO FISHIN!
I would like to thank the boys at Pittsburgh Marine in London, Ky. for keeping my Ranger serviced.
I love our Ranger!
Dear Mr. Wood,
I recently purchased a Ranger 185VS for my husband. This was his dream boat.
I told him, "Why wait until we were too old to enjoy this boat with our family."
He loves how the boat performs, rides and looks. He is proud as a peacock that he has this boat. It is his new baby, and to tell the truth, he babies it also.
Thank you very much for making such a quality boat.
Gotta love a Ranger
I bought my 1987 360V Ranger from Florida, when I was 18, and it was in pretty bad shape. But I knew, in my mind, what it could be.
The people at Ranger Parts got me the right things I needed to make it great.
Now I am 22 an I still have the same boat. This boat runs great in rough water and moves about 63 as smooth as glass.
Ranger, thanks for making my first boat a great one.
After fishing a few charity bass tournaments from the rear-deck of my partner's Ranger boat, I decided to get out of my aluminum bass rig and invest in fiberglass.
My funds were limited, however and I was trying to decide HOW TO GET THE MOST BANG FOR THE BUCK. I was fishing with a friend, who is a bassmaster and guide, and asked "Do I buy new brand x, or buy a used Ranger?". His answer was swift and sure. "BUY THE USED RANGER".
With the help of the excellent staff at R&H Marine, in Bull Shoals, Arkansas, I found an almost new, in the box, 1999 R73 with a 125 Mercury. WHAT A BOAT! Trailering and loading is easier than my aluminum boat. Fishing and skiing with the family is a blast!
THANKS FOR THE RIDE!
In 1997 I bought my first ranger. It's only 17 ft. but it rides like a 20 ft.
I live on Toledo Bend and fish a lot. I've not had 1 bit of trouble. My buddies can't believe how it handles in rough water. I'm going to go to a 19 or 20 ft. boat in about 2 years.
I'm not even considering anything but a Ranger. It's the best investment you can spend for safe and enjoyable fishing!
