I just recently purchased my first Ranger boat in January of this year. It's a 2014 Z518C with the Ranger Cup colors powered by a Mercury Pro XS 200. All I can say is I love the boat and I will be a Ranger owner for life. Cant wait to pay this one off so I can get a Ranger bay boat. Thanks Forrest and everyone at Ranger.
I bought a friend's 1977 1600 V with tiller steering. It has been stored a few years, but I'm cleaning it up. I know it's not a new flashy rig, but I have some great memories fishing in it and I am proud to have it in my garage.
Just bought a used 2006 Ranger Z19. I also have a four month old white Labrador that happens to be named Ranger. Both Rangers are great.
Growing up my family has always bought Ranger Boats, so it was common sense to buy one for my self since I knew how good the quality is of a Ranger product. If or when I get ready to but another boat I can assure you it will be another Ranger!!!!
My Father has been a Ranger Guy from the get go. He bought his first New Ranger in 1999. 1999 Ranger 462 VS w/ 175 Mercury EFI. That boat is still a very nice boat and dad says he will probably just keep it going instead of buying anything else. Proud to be Part of the Ranger Owners Family. 23 years old and bought my Very First Ranger 4/9/14. Its a 1989 363V. Very Happy with it, LOVE my new/old Ranger!
I have to say one thing that never gets old with my new Ranger Angler. Bright days when your on your way to the next fishing experience, you'll notice people gazing at the sparkle of the gel coat. It not only puts on a sense of pride, but also a sense happiness!
New 1880 Angler
First of all I want take my dealer Mortiz Sport and Marine. They did an outstanding job and their service is out of this world with Jordan handling all my rigging and selling me the boat. I have had 22 boats. This is my 23rd. This 1880 Angler is smooth, has a ton of room, and Great performance. The fit and finish is the best I have ever seen...
Bought a new 521C from Nichols Marine in Longview, TX. Dana and Gary make buying a new boat easy.
Waited 25 years to buy my first Ranger. I bought a showroom looking 487 with a 200 Merc EFI. Gentleman I bought from kept it in showroom condition and actually teared up when I drove away with it. After 2 days on the lake I understand why. Very Glad I didn't settle for any other boat. I Love my Ranger.
RT178 tournament boat
I just bought a RT178 tournament aluminum boat last weekend. It has the 75hp Mercury Eco Fourstroke motor on it. We live in Lake Havasu City, Arizona and love to go out on the Colorado River and fish. We were very impressed with the power it had coming out of the hole to plane, the ease it had cutting through other boat wakes, and the stability of the fishing decks while casting and moving around... I'm glad I saw a Ranger before I decided to purchase. There is no comparison between the two (Ranger hands down the best, quality, stability, looks, service)
I have feeling my grandkids will be enjoying this boat well into the future.
My Second Ranger!
Just purchased my second ranger in Jacksonville, FL. I bought it from the owner who had it stored in his boathouse since new. You could put this thing in a museum! The trailer had never even been licensed.
Ran my new (to me)393V on the Big O' for a week and then hauled her back to Canada. 63 mph with full tanks and 3 guys in the boat!
Shes sitting in my driveway waiting for the spring thaw...The anticipation is killing me!
26 Year Owner
Thought about getting a newer boat, I have decided not to. Love this old boat too much. 371V I have literally wore out carpet and seats. Time for a restore - thats the plan - old Rangers and old guys rock!
