What a GREAT boat!
I live on the west coast of Florida and have not owned a boat since I sold my Tournament Ski boat 15 years ago. I recently purchased a used Ranger R91 Sport, 150 HP Mercury. What a great boat. Handles the off shore water much better than I expected and takes me to skinny water fishing spots with no worry of bottoming the boat, and the 65 mph with two people on board makes it a blast to drive. The quality of construction is amazing. What a GREAT boat!!!!!
Just took a tour of the Ranger plant in Flippin, Arkansas a few days ago. What a great visit. Mickey Wood spent almost 2 hours with us explaining all the processes and showing us around the plant. I was impressed with the organization and how clean the shop was. You can't help but smile when you walk out of there, knowing your boat bears the name of the best in the business. Ranger Boats. To top it off we stopped at the gallery next to the plant. Make sure on your visit to check which days the outdoor sports gallery is open. What a display, of not only achievement, but of Forrest's contribution to so many organizations. We felt privilege to meet Forrest and his wife and have our picture taken with him. What a down to earth couple. After our visit I will enjoy my Ranger boat even more every time I take it out.
Thanks Forrest and Nina.
Our second Ranger!
We had owned three different brands of boats until 2008 when we bought our first Ranger, a 198VX. What a fantastic boat! I had never experienced anything quite like it...until my son convinced my wife to start fishing with us. After two consecutive trips of my son hitting me in the head with a TX rigged worm and a spinner bait something had to give before he brought the crank baits out! In the name of "family time", my darling wife decided we needed a 2010 Z522. Good Lord willing, I'll never own anything but a Ranger!
Z520 Ranger Boat
I posted several months ago in the (we love our troops) section after reading several of the stories, and being a veteran myself, that Ranger was the boat of my choice. Well, that happened for me just last week. After purchasing a Z520 last week I took my 2 sons fishing this weekend. My oldest caught the first fish in our boat. Seeing him catch the first fish has some life time memories for me. The other will be when my 6 yr. old catches his. Thanks, to every one for making this happen for families like mine and all the lives that have been lost to make our country the greatest place on earth to live. Freedom is not free we all have to make a sacrifice in some way or the other. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
My first (and defintetly not last) Ranger
I am 16 years old and just bought my first tournament bass boat. Naturally, I was looking for a Ranger. I bought a 1994 Ranger R70 from an older gentleman who was the first owner. It is the greatest thing I ever could have invested in, and hopefully it will give my dream of becoming a professional angler a jumpstart!!!
My first Ranger Boat, 1994 374V
I just purchased my first Ranger, a 1994 374V in great condition! Purchased it from original owner, who won it in a B.A.S.S tournament. It has a Johnson 150 Fast Strike and my 15 year old son and I are loving it so far!
Finally!!! I was able to purchase a new Reata 1850 a few weeks ago! I never thought that day would come! My wife and I had an excellent experience with the whole buying process. The dealership was awesome (Soo Sports). Thanks Ranger! This has been a long time waiting!
I LOVE MY 1999 RANGER R83 WITH A 1999 150 MERCURY OPTIMAX. THE RIDE IS GREAT, AND IT HANDLES ROUGH CHOP VERY WELL WITH A TOP SPEED OF 55 MPH ON GPS.
Got my first real boat 2 weeks ago and I love it. Perfect for us and our three children. What a ride! Thanks Ranger for a quality boat!
1979 Ranger 1850V
Just recovered the seats and buffed out the gel-coat. Worth every drop of sweat. Great boat to get the whole family out and fish. Love our Ranger Boat!!
1983 350V still rockin
Me and my dad were thinking about buying a bass boat. We talked to our uncle. He had a 1983 Ranger 350-V with a 150 Mercury Black Max on it for sale. Needless to say we bought it, and it runs and sounds great. I couldn’t thank Ranger enough for their great boats and great craftmanship. Thanks Ranger, we really do love our Ranger boat!!!
Happy with Reata 1850RS
I fish two trips a year with George Feder a Ranger test ride rep so I thought I knew what to expect from a Ranger boat. My new Reata 1850RS was so much more than I expected, the dry ride and comfort in rough water was amazing. After a day on rough water we talked to some aluminum boat guys and they complained how they could only run 15 mph so as not to get beat up and soaked, they could not believe it when we told them we came in at 38 mph comfortable and dry. This July 4th weekend I got to try it as a family boat and was equally impressed. The 150 E-Tec pulled skiers out with no problem even with 4 adults in the boat. The bimini top that I never thought I'd use was a heaven sent to keep use cool in the 85 degree sunshine, I now plan to use it on hot day's fishing too. I was the last aluminum boat hold out in George’s fishing group that now sports 5 Rangers. Why did I wait so long?
