Ranger Owner For LIFE
I've owned 3 Rangers and all of them are awesome! I bought a 175A in 1977 and sold it in 1984 for $500 more than I paid for it. I then bought a 1985 373V in March '85 and had it until until March 2010. A perfect family and fishing machine!! I now own a 2009 208VX and it is awesome! It's got a 225hp Yamaha HPDI and it's smooth and fast and a very dry ride just like all of my Rangers.
A Ranger is the only way to go!!
Worth The Wait
I recently purchased a 2006 Z 20 Comanche and O M G what a ride. I have been without a boat for two years and with the encouragment of my wife I waited on the right boat to come along and boy did it. My Ranger is a life long dream come true and very much worth the wait. Thank you Ranger for such a quality fishing boat.
Old and New Ranger
I live on West Boggs Creek Lake near Loogootee, Indiana. I have a 1998 30th anniversary R17 Ranger boat with a 125 hp Merc. I keep it on a covered boat lift. I love it because all I have to do is drop it down into the water and I am fishing. I have just finished restoring a rare 1968 (possibly one of the first 6 built) Ranger Bass boat. It is in remarkable shape for its age. Glass is very good and no rot in the wood. Having worked on the restoration project, I am amazed at the advancement Ranger has made over the years. While crude by today's standards, the 1968 model has withstood 45 years of use and is still in very good condition. This is a true testament to the quality put into every Ranger boat from the start to the present.
2nd And Not Last Ranger
I fished in a friend's Ranger boat and fell in love with it. I bought my first Ranger bass boat in 1975, it was not my first boat but was to be my last boat to buy for over 30 years. I choose the Ranger 175A because I loved the way it handled on the water. I used it until 2006 when I decided to upgrade to a larger boat. I found a red and white used 2003 195VS Ranger that was in great condition with a 200 horse Yahama engine. I fell in love all over again and had to have it. I made the deal and now I was a 2 Ranger boat owner. When I sold my old boat I found that Ranger boats hold there value since I got what I ask for it. I will never own anything but a Ranger. I have had the chance to go to the factory where they are made and it only made me love Ranger boats more seeing the way they are put together. Thanks to all the workers that put such pride into building such a GREAT boat.
1986 Ranger 18'
I just purchased my first Ranger bass boat a 1986 model 18' & I love it. Smooth as silk & rough water is not a problem at all...
I love my Ranger. It has to be the smoothest boat I have ever ridden in. Awesome boat.
I Love My Ranger!
I own a 1987 394v with a 1999 Merc 175, it is a wonderful boat, can't find one thing to complain about!
My First Boat - Ranger 2014 Z518c
I ordered a 2014 Z518c in July and took delivery in September and words can't express how awesome the boat performs. Not only is it my first Ranger but also my first boat. I don't have any regrets going with Ranger. It's powered by a 2014 200 HO Evinrude. It's just awesome!!
I love my Ranger. To me Ranger Boats is a part of Americana just like baseball and apple pie.
My New Z520C
I just wanted to say that this is truly the Cadillac of Bass Boats!!! I had a chance to visit the plant while my new Z520C was being built and I all I can say is thank you to all the hard work by all the Ranger employees for building the best bass boat on the market. Mickey Wood was a great host and I truly appreciate the time he spent with us. The fishability, ride, storage and all around design sets Ranger boats apart from everyone else. In closing this is my first Ranger and definitely not my last God willing!!
Thank your Ranger for a great boat.
I have fished out of a lot of boats and owned a couple myself. The used Ranger 482 Comanche with the 150 Yamaha is the most comfortable and smoothest riding boat I have ever been in. I'm hooked on Ranger.
1999 Ranger R81
I owned a 1989 Winner as my first boat and enjoyed it. Then I purchased a 1988 Ranger and it was pretty fast. I liked the way the boat was put together and purchased a 1999 Ranger R81 recently and it has been the best decision I ever made. The quality and style of this boat is perfect for bass fishing and I am pleased with the quality and look of this boat. A real step up for me.
