1994 Comanche 481V
I bought my 1994 Comanche 481V boat new. I only have about 200 hours on the boat and motor. Work has not allowed me to use it much over the last 10 years. It is great to know that this garage and custom boat cover has kept this a beauty. All I do is prime the fuel line/bubble and this baby cranks right up. In the last 20 years, all I have replaced is the engine computer, batteries, and several water pumps. This metallic candy apple red boat still gets the attention of other boat owners. I plan to keep my baby 20 more years.
1987 Ranger 396V
I purchased a 1987 Ranger 396V new before getting married and starting a family. It was and still is perfect for my needs. I figured it would last ten or so years when I bought it. Boat has been garage kept since 1994. Two years ago a fiberglass guy who did some work on it couldn't beleive the condition and quality. He was blown away by the trailer which I recently replaced because of an accident. My two teenage kids argue who will get the boat when I'm gone. I'm convinced that this boat will easily last fifty years.
Wow, Just got my new 2014 RT-178 in camo. Love the Boat. Plenty of room, storage. This is my 3rd Ranger in 6 years, and my last. Keep up the good work Ranger. Well maybe not my last, lol.
Best Fiberglass Boat Made
I've had and driven multiple models of Ranger boats. Any model from the classic 619, 620, 621, and all the way up to the new 1880 now. I can honestly say no other boat has the fit and finish like a Ranger and no other boat out there out performs a Ranger boat. The new 1880 is a great model...
I got my new Z118 in July and couldn't be happier. I love the way Ranger deals with its customers. I had several conversations with people at the factory and couldn't have asked for better customer service. Can't wait till spring to get back out on the water!
Just bought my 2nd Comanche Z522. Had a Z-20 and Z-21. My favorite is the 522 because my son says I carry too much stuff, I need all the room I can get. Still have my 1st Ranger, a 1984 350V. Still use it. Special thanks to Dana at Nichol's Marine, Longview,Tx for all her help.
My 1998 Comanche
I finally got me a Ranger. Is not new but is very very close to new. I bought a 1998 481 VS Comanche (25 Anyversary Edition) with a 150 Evinrude in super mint condition, and I have to say I LOVE MY RANGER.
I ran many brands of boats before my first Ranger. I ordered my first Ranger (185VS)in 2003 and still have it today. I can honestly say the Ranger has the best finish, ride and speed of any I have had. Nothing but Ranger for me! Love my 185VS.
After purchasing my first Ranger in 1972, I have been fortunate to own several since. I believe anyone who owns a Ranger likes it and appreciates the quality, design and functionality. However we forget to praise those who are dedicated to providing us with a first class boat . I currently have four Rangers from 1974 to 2012 models. All four boats are as structurally sound as the day they left Flippin, Arkansas. When we talk about "Made in America" and "American Proud", Ranger Boats, it's founders and employees are prime examples.
My new 2014 Z119c
My dealer who by the way is great, Knox Marine in central Ohio, called me and said my boat is in. I have owned a Ranger for 17 years now. When I went into the showroom and saw my new Z119c it actually took my breath away. Knox Marine guys Steve and Mike had that boat so shiney I could see myself in it. Color option A is awesome. Thanks to all of the Ranger group.
1983 375V Commanche
Last June I bought this boat from the original owner and I can't tell you how happy I am. 30 years old and this boat is mint. Knowing Ranger Boats, because I was lucky enough to buy one when I was 22 (1600 VIII). I had to sell that boat and regretted it ever since. Now that I have my new (to me) Ranger and it is in great condition with the original motor (150 Johnson V6 - still running) I just wanted to say "I love my Ranger" !!!
I love my 168 Phantom boat the best ever!!! I bought last year and have a nice experience ...
