After twenty five years in various bass boats, I finally bought a used Ranger boat. I am very happy with everything about the boat.
My Ranger Bass Boat!
I own a 1978 Ranger 158V bass boat. She's an oldie, but a goodie. I'm 16 and this was my very first bass boat. I worked everyday for almost 3 months saving money to buy it. Well, 3 years later I still have her and in excellent shape! I have fished in it in several bass tournaments with TBF student angler federation and that's how everyone knows me, the boy with the ole' Ranger that being 34 years old it still does it's job. I love my Ranger boat!!! Ain't a better boat out on the market! Maybe one day I can get myself the new Comanche Z521. Those are some beautiful boats.
I recently purchased my first RANGER boat. It is a 2005 Z21 Comanche. I have owned three other brands and I will tell you they're all fighting for second place. I have fished out of just about every brand there is and nothing compares to Ranger. This boat makes me feel secure and confident. After fishing out of other boats, I can actually feel the difference in quality. I can truthfully say "I LOVE MY RANGER BOAT".
I just purchased my second Ranger it’s an 07 Z20 with a 225 Etec and I have fell in love with her already. My partner and I just fished a tournament a few evenings ago and the blast off had a lot of waves and my partner was a little worried since he never has rode in a quality of a boat as this and we got to the fishing spot all he could talk about was how awesome of a ride it was. My first Ranger was a 96 461VS and it was a really nice boat but I have really stepped up several notches getting this boat. I’m ready… for her to get out of the shop from getting some simple maintenence done to her so I can to take her out again, I miss her.
I think the Z520 is the best tournament bass boat around. I have rode in a lot of boats and listened to other anglers on the BFL circuit, and that boat is all the talk. I hope to win one someday in the circuit fishing or someday be able to get one. I want it rigged with an Optimax Pro XS 225 HP. I heard the guys talking about how good it is on gas. Thanks for a great boat!!!!!
Many years ago, 1987, I purchased my first Ranger, A 374V and I fished with it until 2011. I have just replaced it with a newer one and can see the same quality in it that my first one had. Thank you Ranger.
My First Ranger
Just bought my first Ranger!!! We bought the Z522 Comanche with Mercury Verado 300. Wow what a boat!!! We also met Forest L. Wood, what a treat it was to meet the Legend!
1989 Apache 375V
I bought my now 23-year-old 1989 Apache 375V new. It looks and performs today exactly as it did then. The original Evinrude 150hp XP outboard is running strong and I doubt I'll ever have to re-power the boat. The original factory-installed trolling motor is still working just as it did 23 years ago. We keep the boat at our northern Wisconsin cabin. There have been many boats on the lake over the years - our Ranger is the only one that has lasted as long as it has.
My First Ranger
I just bought a 2000 Ranger R71. My first trip out with her was a real test of what Ranger stands for. My Ranger was an unbelievably smooth ride that day. Nothing beats a Ranger.
I love my Ranger!
I’m 14 and have my boater’s license in both Florida and GA. I live to hunt, but I’d die to fish. I love it.Best boat we've ever had and the baddest boat I think we will ever have. I live the salt life and would be out there every day if I could. This boat makes it so roomy for me and my buddy to go out and the storage is awesome. I love my Ranger!
How EXCITING Is The Wait.......
I am having Ranger build my “DREAM” rig.I have a few friends that own Rangers. Hands down I knew someday I would save up and own one. That day has finally come. My Dad and I did just that. Together we are taking this journey of building our dream rig. We love to fish together and when it was time to upgrade we did not look at any other boats we went right to the Ranger website and built our dream rig. We are told the boat is currently on track and will be done in May. It’s funny to hear / read the “building your dream rig” as that is truly what we are doing. Picking out the perfect colors, and rigging it with all the goodies right from the factory. I must say, we don’t even have the boat yet and so very pleased with Ranger! I just can’t wait to see my new 620 Fisherman. Better yet I can’t wait to toss the first walleye into the livewell.
You’re Fishing Friend.
