2012 Reata 1850
We bought our Reata new from Cabela's in Sidney, NE. I have to say the service and support from Cabela's was the best. Our Reata was the boat I have dreamed of and it has not disappointed us in any way. It has handled any water we have fished in (even with Wyoming wind). It has also become the play boat for the entire family.
Bought the RT188 about 8 months ago so I can give a good "seat of the pants" review now. I have had this boat in a lot of different types of water and situations and trailered it to Florida and back. I traded in my 19 ft fiberglass boat on this aluminum Ranger.
I have been very impressed with the RT188 and the 115 Yamaha combination. It fishes great from the front, has a lot of room and is the most stable metal boat I have been in, it takes rough water well and rides smooth. I am retired now and it is a lot easier on me to move around and hook and unhook. It trailers easy and is easy to load at the ramp. The 80 pound trolling motor takes it anywhere through grass and weeds. I am very pleased with the purchase.
I Love My Ranger
Last Valentines Day my wife bought me my Dream Rig! A Ranger Z21 Comanche! What else can I say? I upgraded my boat not just in length, as my first boat was another brand and was 18', but the ride, OMG, so smooth, so comfortable. The attention to detail, the storage the everything was an upgrade to the boat I bought NEW. I have had the pleasure of fishing out of many different brands, so many sizes, but there is no comparison to the 21' Ranger, I LOVE MY RANGER!
Love My Z520
Last year I purchased a 2008 that was barely used from Dixie Marine in Cincinnati, Ohio. Since I fish mainly Lake Erie and St. Clair they suggested a 5 blade prop for my 250 Yamaha. Wow, Awesome, Oh my, are some of the comments I get from my partners who all are Ranger owners when they see the performance of this boat in rough water. This is my first Ranger, but like many others I have owned other brands. You can not fully appreciate this boat until you have owned other makes.
First Time Out!
This past weekend I was able to get my two year old son (Mayson) out on the lake for the first time. We have a 2005 185VS. It was a day that I will never forget. The litte future Ranger owner had a blast. Thank you Ranger!!
Fishing on a Ranger
Had the time of my life fishing with my friends Bob Hobba from Buffalo, NY and Dan Petterson of Fargo, ND fishing for 3 days at Lake of the Woods on his new Ranger Fisherman. The boat got more compliments than my new sneakers did.
Awesome boat with so much comfort while traveling on the lake.
1995 Comanche 20 Foot
I love using a Ranger. I belong to a local bass club fish
and fish a lot of tournaments. Me and my brother Walt have
fished out of Rangers since 1971. My brother still uses his 1971 Ranger.
I Love Fishing In My Ranger!
My Ranger helps me get to the best places on the lake quickly and the manuverability after I arrive is excellent! I've caught 2 bass over 6 pounds this spring in the hardest lake to fish in our area. Thanks Ranger!
1987 Ranger Comanche
Just got my very first boat and it had to be a Ranger. She is almost thirty years old but new to me and I can't wait to get out on the water with my son, catch some fish, and make some happy memories.
My Ranger Boat
After 12 years having my Ranger bass boat I sold it this morning. It was the best bass boat I ever owned and looking to get a new one again. Thank you Ranger Boats for making the best boat ever to exist.
I've owned my Ranger 191 Cayman for 6 years now and still wouldn't trade it for any other boat on the market.
I have owned a Ranger 362V, 364V, 354XT, 188V, and currently a 2012 Z520. I have also owned other brand boats but none have even come close to the Rangers. Every Ranger has been a great boat. The Z520 I currently own is the best boat I have ever had and the best boat I have ever been in period. The one thing I look forward to now is the day I can go buy an aluminum Ranger to go with my 520. Ranger is the only way to go for overall quality. I will never own another brand boat...
