2nd Generation Ranger
I now own my dad’s Ranger he bought brand new in 1988, a 680c and love it. I will pass this boat to my son. My Ranger has a million hours on it literally. This boat will last 3 generations no problem. Thanks Ranger!

I LOVE MY RANGER
This is my second Ranger and my wife bought it for me. It is a 1999 R83 with a Mercury 150 Optimax. I picked up this boat 5/2011 in New Jersey, it was still in show room condition. I took the boat to a Mercury mechanic said it had 60 hours on it . What a deal, thank you Suzie!
I took delivery of my new Z521 4 weeks ago, already had 2 weeks fishing for Barramundi (yes I am Australian) and competed in a Bream Tournament. Couldn't be happier with the performance and ride not to mention the stability of it as a fishing platform. Do yourself a favour, if you have not been in a Ranger, go for a ride in one and become a convert.
After owning several aluminum boats and always wanting a Ranger Boat I bought a 98 R82! It was kept very nice and looks like new. Has a 175 Evinrude Intruder and runs like a champ. Our family has already had a lot of fun in it. Thanks Ranger for making us happy!!!! Thanks Forest Wood for making Ranger Boats!!!!
I just bought a 2006 519VX. This was my very first Ranger and I absolutely love it. The boat only had 55 hrs on it when I bought it. It was very well taken care of and I just love going out sitting in the garage and wiping on it myself. There is nothing more beautiful than a clean Ranger. This was a dream of mine to own a Ranger and it came true. I am very blessed to have it and I want to thank Ranger for there quality and design.
1994 482VS #52
Just picked up another Ranger. It’s a 1994 482VS. It’s a Bassmaster Classic model #52. Great boat, awesome shape, she should be great on lake Erie! I can’t wait to get her out.....
Always wanted a Ranger. Now I have one just what I wanted. Found a 1991 361V with 175 Merc. Nearly perfect condition, I love my Ranger!
I grew up wanting a Ranger boat. Seeing them on the water was almost as exciting as catching the fish! I got my first Ranger in 2001 it was a 1981, but still a Ranger. After riding in that boat I was hooked. In 2009 I bought another brand of boat due to a great deal, it was a 95 *******. Newer, but not better. I finally got back into a Ranger last fall. I found my dream boat Fisherman 620!! All I can say is what a ride - you guys out did yourself. I have taken some friends out fishing and they can't believe how nice it is. Thank you so much for the great quality well worth the price and wait to get a Ranger.
How Awesome Is It?
I AM IN LOVE WITH THE SPORT OF BASS FISHING! This may make my husband a little jealous, (ha ha), but I totally love going out on our 2011 Z118 and ripping lips! We get to spend quality time together and enjoy a sport that we both love so much and try to instill in our children! We have a boy who is 3 and a girl that is 5 and they both love to take their little poles and fish for whatever!!! As long as we are having family time and enjoying something that we all love to do it is ALL GOOD! Thank you Ranger Boats for providing us with a safe rig to teach our children the ropes on hooking the bucket mouths! WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE OUR BOAT AND THE EXPRIENCES AND MEMORIES THAT WE MAKE WHILE USING IT!
1998 519 DVS COMANCHE
I've owned several brands of bass boats in my life and have always seen and wanted a Ranger boat. 2 years ago I was able to purchase a used Ranger (1998 Ranger 519 DVS Comanche). This boat is great. I fish in the Chesapeake Bay and it can get pretty rough and choppy. This boat handles it like a champ. The original owner fished the Everstart series out of it and I must say that it has held up terrific. I still get folks coming up to check it out and ask questions. Most of them can’t believe it's a 1998 year boat. For me, I feel like it's a new boat. Thanks Ranger for building such a fine rig. :)
My 2004 Ranger 185VX, purchased used in 2005, get's the job done every weekend I get her on the water which is, like, every weekend! With basic maintenance this sweet ride has taken care of me and my fish in every tournament I've fished in it. The Merc 175 Optimax get's me where I need to go and home again. Over time I've upgraded electronics and added a Power-Pole, but the stability, the ride, the performance, the assurance of fishing our out of GREAT product just can't be beat!!! LOVE MY RANGER!!!
I was wary of buying an older boat, but after owning my 86 375V I know this old boat is a nice ride! At 62mph its no slouch either. Thank you Ranger Boats!!!
