I've been fishing tourments for about 13 years now and I've owned many boats. But last year I decided I wanted a dual console. So I went in the market to buy a good used boat.
Never even thought about a Ranger... always thought they were a heavy and slow boat but could not beat the price of this boat.
This boat looks brand new... like the guy never used it. So I disscussed price with him and when he told me he would take $6,000.00 for it I ran to my bank.
Well after owning this boat I came to find Ranger did not put anything cheap in this boat and as being heavy and slow goes that engine is anything but slow. I love this boat.
This could very well be the last boat I buy. I strongly belive there is not a better boat on the market.
Last month I traded a 1999 competitor boat for a 1999 518VX Ranger and it was the best trade I ever made. My old boat was a good boat but my Ranger is the best, now I see why everyone says that Rangers are the best they are.
I won't own any other name brand boat ever! Thanks Ranger, you made my dreams come true.
Ranger stands for resale!
I bought a Ranger in 1985, and sold it for 65% of the original purchase price 17 years later. Find another boat company that can provide the owner with that!
WHY BUY OR RUN ANYTHING ELSE!
Everybody in the boating business talks about their boat's quality, but how many of them are still out on the lake after 30 years?
I would match my 1972 Ranger with any of them , and my 1972 Triumph Evnirude... I would be willing to bet that there's not one of them around that can stay with my Ranger, fish all day and at the end of the day be ready to fish the next on without some kind of repair or leak. And as far as johnny on the spot help, all you have to do is call.
I called the factory about a book on my boat and I talked to Hugh. He not only got me a book but told me all about my boat. Talk about value.
Thanks for the boat!
My first Bass Boat
My Dad bought a 1998 17ft Cherokee brand new, I mean right of the floor.
Dad pretty much quit fishing, so I was the only one who used her. I fell in love with that boat, she was all I would want in a bass boat.
I came home from Iraqi Freedom in June, and had saved some money, AND I BOUGHT THAT RANGER!
It's August and I am still on cloud nine, complete with a Ranger sticker on the backglass of my Chevy!
I LOVE MY RANGER
Call me crazy, call me insane! It doesn't matter because I love my 2003 Ranger 185DVS.
I purchased my first Ranger this year in March and it was the best thing I ever did. I lost the parking for one of my cars and had to eliminate the garage door entry to my house. It doesn't matter to me, or my wife Esther, we both agree we made the best choice of boats.
All I can do now is open the kitchen door to the garage and see my Ranger sitting there with no way to get out. I open the door on a regular basis and hug that big ohhh Ranger and think about the next fishing trip.
Thank you Forrest for providing the best!
We just bought a new 2002 518VX, and even though we've only been in it once, I know it's the best 19 foot boat I'll ever buy.
GREAT room, ride, storage, stability, features, looks, fishability, and everything else you can think of. The best part is how the width of the front deck is carried up so far.
I love my Ranger!
New 2004 521SVX
I just picked up my new 2004 Ranger 521 SVX today at the plant. They gave me a wonderful tour and treated us great.
The boat is absolutely everything I wanted. Can't wait until Monday for my dealer to finish their prep of the boat.
See you on the water!
Ranger Fisherman 680T
Just thought I'd say, "YEEEHHAAAA!!"
I just picked up up my first Ranger Fisherman. A 1989 Ranger Fisherman 680T with a 1990 Johnson 60hp tiller.
The boat looks BRAND NEW! THE BOAT IS AWESOME!
THE BEST FISHING BOAT MADE
I'VE OWNED THREE OTHER BIG NAME BOATS BEFORE I FINALLY WISED UP AND BOUGHT THE BEST FISHING BOAT MADE! THERE'S NOTHING LIKE SITTING IN A FISHERMAN SERIES RANGER.
I CAN CRUISE 55 MPH TO MY NEXT SPOT ON CALMER DAYS. I CAN POUND THE 6 FOOT ROLLERS ON MILLE LACS WITHOUT HARDLY GETTING WET. ANYONE WHO HAS FISHED MILLE LACS KNOWS HOW WEATHER AND FISHING CONDITIONS CHANGE IN A BLINK OF AN EYE.
I AM PROUD TO OWN THE SAFEST, MOST RELIABLE BRAND OF BOAT THERE IS. AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, IT'S THE ONLY BRAND NAME BOAT THERE IS! RANGER, IT'S IN MY BLOOD! IT'S WHO I AM! THANK YOU RANGER BOATS.
STEVE AMUNRUD II
I JUST BOUGHT MY FIRST RANGER. THE FIRST TIME I TOOK IT TO THE LAKE I THOUGHT, "WHAT HAVE I BEEN MISSING ALL THIS TIME?"
IT ONLY TOOK 100 YARDS ACROSS THE WATER TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE IN THIS BOAT COMPARED TO THE OTHER BRANDS I HAD. FROM NOW ON I WILL NOT OWN ANYTHING BUT A RANGER.
31 years I have waited. It was all worth it.
My 361V 175 Mercury has improved my Bass fishing performance 100%. I made the cut for the B.A.S.S. Fed. State Tournament at Dardenell. I'm going as none boater but I will wear my Ranger shirt with pride.
