After fishing in the C.A.S.T. $100,000.00 Classic tournament on Lake Sam Rayburn, my wife and I were on our way home when we were involved in a six-car pileup on Interstate 45.
We hit the car in front of us and a car hit my Ranger 519 Boat from behind and another car hit that car driving it even further into my boat. My outboard motor was imbedded in the cars hood. While I was standing on the side of the road with the police officer he looked at my Suburban and my Ranger boat. He said,” it’s too bad that they don’t make the Suburban as strong as they make Ranger Boats."
My Ranger, I found out later, only had $600 worth of damage. They totaled my ¾ ton, 4-wheel drive, heavy duty Suburban. I believed in the Ranger quality before, but I truly believe in it now.
I will always own a Ranger Boat.

My Dad Mr. Ranger
My dad, who I still call Mr. Ranger, had a 1600-1 series bass boat.
In 1996 my dad past away and left me that special bass boat. I was in Bosnia at the time in the U.S. Army. That boat was my dad's special fishing tool, some people have special poles, lures, bait, but my dad had that boat. That boat caught fish everytime he was in it on the water.
With my dad's guidance as my personel co-pilot I will continue his quest, searching for that BIG Catch.
I Love My Ranger
Thank you for a truly awesome machine.
Words can't describe the joy of owning my new Ranger.
My Baby Turned 20
In 1983 I ordered a new 372V. Well, my baby turned 20 this year and she still runs great. When people see this boat they think it is a '98 or newer.
She looks as good today as when I picked her up. If you take care of a Ranger they will last and last!! Thanks to the Ranger factory, I called and ordered new carpet a few years ago, because everything else still looks new.
People ask if I want to sell her, but no way, Ranger Boats can't be beat.
Thank you Mr. Wood
After many years of dreaming of getting a Ranger, I finally got it. It's an old one but it's a great one.
I didn't want anything but a Ranger and I found it! I live in Northern Indiana, and the boat was in North Carolina. Talk about desperation. I gave 6 grand for it and she still appraises out at $10,000! And everything still works.
I am very satisfied. A Ranger is the only boat I ever wanted and the only one I ever bought. After all this time, I finaly got one!
I have waited 8 years to buy my first bass boat and last winter (02) I made my choice to buy a Ranger. I had looked and rode in other boats but nothing came close to the craftmenship and ride of a Ranger.
I have had my boat in 4 to 5 foot waves and have not gotten wet once. The 195VS is a all-around great boat that is stable, solid and quick.
Ranger, Thank you for building a great boat!

Dreaming of a Ranger...
We just ordered a new 2004 522DVX Comanchee with a 300HP Yamaha. This boat is decked out with everything you could want and then some...
This is a totally custom boat that we pretty much designed at the factory, in Flippin, while taking a tour with Hugh Dewey.
I was told we could expect delivery in about 6 weeks.
This is going to be the longest six weeks of my life.
Thank you for making the most beautiful boats in the world in one of the prettiest places in America.
I love my Ranger
THANKS FOR BUILDING SUCH A NICE BOAT!
I BOUGHT MY 518SVX IN 2002 AND, SINCE I'VE OWNED IT, I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT GREAT THINGS TO SAY ABOUT IT. IT'S GIVEN ME MANY MEMORIES THAT I COULD NEVER FORGET LIKE THOSE PRICELESS FISHING TRIPS WITH DAD.
I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT WHEN I BUY MY NEXT BOAT IT WILL DEFINITELY BE ANOTHER RANGER. THANKS ONCE AGAIN FOR BUILDING A BOAT THAT REALLY MADE MY DREAMS COME TRUE.
1989 Ranger 361V
I have always wanted to own a Ranger.
I was finally able to buy one in excellent condition, due to the proud owner of this Ranger keeping it in perfect condition.
I have ridden in other bass boats and none of them rode as well as the Rangers that I rode in.
I am now totally confirmed as to why I always wanted a Ranger...QUALITY!!!!!
Thanks Ranger and Mr. Wood!
Oldie but a goodie
Purchased a 1985 373V. It's still in great shape.
I've learned that Rangers have a great resale value if they're taken care of!!
I have owned a Ranger since the late 80's, when I lived in Illinois. After moving to Florida I had to find a new one in my area. When I got in touch with my rep, he was not only happy to help, he got me the parts I needed!
He also sent them to me in a couple of days. He's just one of the reasons I will continue to run the best boat on the market.
Thank you for the total commitment to your owners.
I FISHED IN A NIGHT TOURNAMENT A FEW WEEKS AGO. AT ABOUT 4:30AM MY BUDDY TOLD ME THAT THE FLOOR OF THE BOAT WAS FULL OF WATER AND WE SHOULD CALL IT A NIGHT. I TOLD HIM TO CHILL OUT, THAT WE WERE IN A RANGER AND IT WOULD BE OK.
AT THE BOAT RAMP THERE WAS ONLY ONE OTHER RANGER BOAT. THAT'S WHEN I PULLED UP THE RAMP WITH A BOAT FULL OF WATER. ONE OF THEM YELLED THAT I HAD HOLE IN MY BOAT. I SAID, "YES, I KNOW. IT'S MY PLUG" AND THAT I HAD FISHED ALL NIGHT WITHOUT IT. I TOLD THEM TO GO OUT THERE AND TRY IT BUT THEY DIDN'T WANT TO.
I NEVER SIT IN ANY OTHER BASS BOAT.
