Yup - I was all set on a new boat from a different brand, but the my dealer had a RANGER Z118 on his show room floor. One look and I was hooked. Me and the wife have fished out of our new Ranger several times now and we love it. This boat is awesome from the livewell to the insulated cooler.
The Wait Is Over
I have been fishing ever since I was five years and I have always dreamed of having a bass boat. Up til this year I couldn't afford one. I started looking in the spring at all the different bass boats out there and did my home work. I went to M-W Marine and bought my first bass boat a Z118. Boy I love it and yes its going to be part of the family for years to come. Thank you Chuck at M-W Marine for your help. Thank you Ranger Boats for such a quality boat.
Love my Ranger Boat
Just traded in my 2007 Ranger 519 VX Tour Edition. This boat was my first Ranger and we are sad to see it go. But my wife and I just bought our dream boat a Z520C Nascar Edition. Bunch Marine in TN is rigging to the way we want it. Curtis and the crew are fantastic to deal with. Hope to pick up with in a week. My wife and I fish couple tournaments together and are proud to own a Ranger.
I finally had to replace the trailer tires on my 2000 Ranger 620VS! Fourteen years and the tires still had tread worth thousands of miles left, but the years had taken its toll on the tires in between the tread and they had started to weather crack. I love this boat and it still looks as good as the day I bought it.
We recently purchased a new Z518 (our first bass boat) and I have to say this is a "beast". It fishes like a much larger boat and clearly is in a class of it's own!
Thanks Ranger for making the Z518 the fishing machine that it is!!
18 years old and bought my first Ranger. I love this boat. Really fast and it handles like a sports car. Thank you Forrest L. Wood.
I've only had my new RT 178 for 2 months and I love my new Ranger aluminum boat. This boat is so stable, rides great in rough water, has huge casting decks front and rear and has more storage than I will ever need. Great job guys!
I recently traded and upgraded to a Ranger Z118. I love my Ranger. The dealer that helped me is Real Deal Marine in Alexandria, La. They are awesome. If you are looking for a Ranger, please call or visit them. The Z118 is an awesome machine. It is way more than I expected and I am impressed.
Thank you Real Deal Marine and Ranger Boats.
Just purchased a RT 188 Ranger Aluminum boat. Didn't realize Ranger made aluminum boats. I've wanted a Ranger my entire life and now I have one. It is truly first class. The welds are flawless, the fit and finish are industry leading, and the ride is, well, it rides like a Ranger - fast to plane, quick turning, sure feeling, and dry riding. I now own the finest aluminum boat on my lake. Heads turn at the ramp. People with $50,000 boats make it a point to tell me what a beautiful boat I have. I can't forget the dealer either; Anglers Choice in Lexington, NC. Mark is the best and the rest of the staff could not have been more helpful. Thanks for making the best boat on the water.
I just took delivery of the new RT188 - dual console, black, with a 115 fourstroke Mercury and all I can say is WOW. I traded my 96 482VS glass Ranger in on this new aluminum model. The RT188 has all the quality that you would expect on a Ranger. The fit of all the components is flawless. The ride is smooth and handles wake crossing like a charm. Loading and unloading on the Ranger Trail trailer is smooth.
I am so far very pleased and highly recommend this new member of the Ranger family.
Our New Used Boat
We just purchased a 1982 Ranger 1780V bass boat w/ 1985 150hp motor from an elderly gentleman today. We took it to the lake and it runs great! A lot of power, room enough for 5 people in my family and looks awesome. I really think we're going to enjoy this boat for a long time!
I just inherited my fathers 1976 Ranger. Growing up, this was my father's pride and joy and was always kept indoors and covered while not in the water. Moreover, everything on the boat was meticulously maintained and kept in specific boxes and spots. Some of my fondest memories were from fishing trips that we took in Texas on Lakes such as Grandury, Fork and Toledo Bend. I always hoped that someday the boat would be passed down to me and now that it has been, I find myself with the same mindset as my father with regards to the care of the boat. As I was going through some of the boxes and doing light cleaning, I looked at the running hours meter and although I knew the hours would be low, I did not realize how low. Since my father had the boat custom ordered in Eufaula, Alabama in 1976 the boat and original motor have had a grand total of 120 running hours logged. My hope is to maintain this classic beauty that still looks new, in its current mint condition and pass it along to my son. I truly believe that their ate not too many 76' model Rangers still out there in this condition and I feel blessed to be the owner. I only wish I could share a picture to all the loyal Ranger family members / owners. Also, for the Mercury fans in the Ranger family the 76' model Merc 150 on the back is also in brand new condition. What a classic!!
