My New Ranger Is AWESOME!
I have a new 2015 Z118c and am amazed at the quality, handling, and performance. I had waited a very long time to purchase a new boat and am so happy I am a Ranger owner! It has been a life changing event for me and now I can run and fish anywhere I want with confidence! Also....Ranger dealers are the best I have seen at customer service and satisfaction!
Hooked On Ranger
I bought my first Ranger, a 1983 330V, in 1996. Later I found a deal on a used 374V and purchased it in 1998. In 2010 I purchased a 2004 185VS with a 175 Merc and Paralift Jackplate. It is an awesome boat. I still have all three and wax and shine on them every week. They are my pride and joy. I feel they are the very best boat on the market and plan to keep them forever. Thanks to Forrest Wood for creating such a great boat. I take great pride in owning them.
2008 40th Anniversary Z21 w/ Evinrude 250 E-Tec H.O.
Just purchased my first Ranger. Love it! I am adding new Lowrance HDS 12 and HDS 7 Touch units and will be using a Lowrance HDS 7 Gen 1 or HDS 8 Gen 1 for instrumentation.
I bought a new RT178 aluminum in April. Love the boat...
I traded boats a couple months back. I have sold rangers in the past for Dave Varney in Kenova, WV... back in the late 90's to right at 2000. I ALWAYS ADMIRED THE CRAFTSMANSHIP... I sold many, but had to stay with what I could afford. Dave and I would take one out every now and then and fish. He always wanted me in a Ranger. Well sad to say Dave and his son are both gone now, but I think he helped get me in a Ranger finally. I am the happiest guy you will ever see. It is the smoothest ride I have ever been in and the attention to detail surpasses every other boat I have seen. The craftsmanship is unbelievable. The storage is surpassed by no one. I think that Dave is looking down on me with a big smile from Heaven and telling everyone there that that's my friend teaching those kids how to bass fish at Boyd County High School and I finally have him in the boat of his dreams
Love My Ranger
Last year I bought a 1997 Ranger 488vs. Has about 30 hrs on it. I love it. Rides like dream. Quality never ages. Best boat. If I ever buy a new boat, it will be a RANGER.
I recently purchased my 188 with Yamaha 115 package from Duncan Marine in Brandon, MS (Great folks to do business with. This boat is awesome!!! It has great features, rides smooth, very stable, has great storage for all gear, love the rod locker, and fishes great! It has a giant front deck! That's just to name a few of the great features! I love my new Ranger and would highly recommend anybody interested in a new boat check out the features on the Ranger RT188!
Living The Dream
After a diagnosis of stage 4 prostate cancer, I decided to get a Ranger. I have always wanted one but my budget was a bit small. I looked and looked and finally found a 1983 350V that was a one owner. My boat had a newer Merc 150 EFI installed in 2009. The boat is in great shape but has a few nicks. The engine has only 120 hours and I have enjoyed several weekends on the lake watching the sunrise. First time out I caught two 1+ pound bass and a 3 pounder. I just looked at my son and said "let the good times begin".
2013 Z520 of Pure Goodness
I picked up my brand new Ranger a week ago and since have gone out on it now 3 times. Having come from a different brand of boat I can't say enough about this boat. Ride, Fishability, Smooth, Sleek and handles amazing like driving a race car. Can't wait for the weekend!!!
Having Affair With My Ranger Bass Boat
It's not new. I like to call her seasoned. 1998 30th Anniversary 481VS. Johnson 150 Fast Strike. I just love the way she looks.
Just recently purchased Z118c from Toho Marine in St Cloud, Florida on July 10, 2014. Had it on the water twice and the performance is flawless!! Equipped with Mercury 150 Pro XS... Wow what power! Minn Kota Fortrex 80lb thrust does a great job getting me through the thick Florida hydrilla with ease. I have owned 7 boats in my life and this Ranger will be my last!!! Ranger is perfection!! A dream come true for any angler!!!

I purchased my 2013 Z118 with the Mercury Pro XS 150 back in May 2014 and I can honestly say that Ranger is the finest boat on the water!!!
This boat is very stable, roomy and fast!!
I purchased it from MARE Inc., and they treated me like one of the family! Thanks again to Brian and John for the great service!!!
I have been on the water every weekend since I bought it and I am enjoying it very much!!! Keep up the great work on your boats!!!
