I just bought a 2005 Ranger 165VS. I absolutely love this boat.
New Boat, New Identity
I have fished for years out of many brand X boats, always with my eye of one day owning the best. July 18, 2012 I bought the best... Ranger Z118. Fished a tournament that night first time on the water excited and proud to be launching a brand new Ranger. I'm not just a fisherman any more, I'm a Ranger Fisherman.
I inherited my grandpa's 1997 Ranger Boat. After months of work it's looking almost new! Put her out on the water... still rides like it did the day we brought her home! Thank you Ranger Boats for building such an awesome ride! Miss you PaPa!
Ranger Bass Rig
I just bought a 2003 Ranger 521DVX NASCAR LTD. I have fished from Rangers for a long time and always wanted to own one. Now I have one and I'm sure going to enjoy it. Can't wait to take it out for the first time.
We bought our Ranger Reata a little over five years ago after taking a tour of the Ranger facility. I will NEVER own anything but a Ranger! It is great for fishing and playing and we LOVE our Ranger!

My Ranger Boat
I have recently purchased my second Ranger Boat (520SVX). My first was a Ranger 374 XT that I purchased new from Bedford Sales. My experince with Ranger Boats has been great with each boat. My sons were riding in a Ranger since they were 5 years old and now one of them is also a Ranger owner with a 2000 518VX. Thanks Ranger for building a safe and quality boat for me and my family.
Ranger Reata 1850
This boat gets used all of the time, fishing, trolling (lots of trolling, thanks Evinrude ETEC!!) and tubing. The ride is still amazing over rough water, but the fuel economy is the most amazing thing; what an efficient hull! And, it doesn't hunt side to side when trolling, rock stable and keeps the exact direction without jockying the steering wheel. First boat ever like this. I may keep this forever!!
I'm 22 and I just bought my first Ranger - a 1995 17 foot R72 Sport with a 115 Evinrude. She flys... I can do 53 mph. It's decent on gas, rides very smooth and there is quite a bit of storage on the rig. rod boxes aren't very big, but in 1995 people wern't using 7-8 foot poles. I just love the boat. She still sparkles like new. I love the head turns we get on the way to the ramp. Ranger for life!
My Little Ranger
I am new to bass fishing, but wanted to give it a try from a solid bass boat. I stumbled on a 2006 175VS that was really in good condition. Although it is smaller than most other bass boats on the water, it really rides well in a light chop, it feels bigger than it really is. The quality of the details and finish is outstanding. My wife loves it, too. If I ever learn to fish, I am moving up to a larger Ranger, at least a Z118 or Z518. This is the best built boat I have owned and I've owned some form of boat almost all of my adult life.
I purchased a 1984 373V 4 years ago. This boat is great. It is in amazing condition and a great boat to fish with. Never have had a Ranger before this, but will never change now.
1988 Ranger 373V
I just bought my very first 1988 Ranger 373V Bass Boat on eBay for $3500. 2 Owner Books and Records. The boat was re-engined in 1992 with an Evinrude 150 Spitfire and 22 Pitch Ryker Prop. Evinrude 41# 24VDC Trolling Motor. OEM Ranger Trailer in very good condition with new carpet, bunks, new bearings and Goodyear Marathon Tires. Everything works on this rig. I have inspected every square inch of this boat, motor, and trailer, and concluded that the quality of the Ranger Boat is simply second to none. Every Bass Boat Owner I spoke to said IF you are going to buy a fishing boat buy a Ranger. Truer words have never been spoken. My Ranger is 24 years old and still going strong. Thank You.

My Ranger Boat
Bought my fourth Ranger Since 92' and have had it for two months now. I downsized to the Z118.
Today our old farts club fished Sweetwater Lake in winds of 20-30 mph.
I was told the profile of this boat would make a difference in wind. That is an understatement. The engineering sets this boat apart from all others. I held it into the wind on the trolling motor and never got a drop of water on my shoes. And it was not difficult!
I love this Ranger!
