Z518 COMANCHE OWNER REVIEWS
On-The-Water Insights & More
Thanks Ranger for building such a great product; truly the best on the water. My dad has owned a 1988 373V Classic and a 2000 520. I have always known that I wanted to own a Ranger. Thanks to my dad and wife, that dream has finally come true. I am the proud owner of a 2012 Z518 with a 200 Pro XS. The first time on the water in the new boat, it performed like a Ranger should Ð perfectly. I ended up with 5 good keeper fish that day, what a way to break in my Ranger. Thank you Ranger Boats.

I have the 2011 Ranger Z518 with a 200 Mercury Optimax Pro XS. I use my Ranger several times a week and every weekend. My Ranger rides like a dream and handles even better. My family has always bought Ranger Boats so I have grown up knowing that Ranger Boats are the best Boats built by far. IÕm already making plans to custom order a new Ranger from the factory and hoping I can take a tour. If you want a top notch rig that will make other fisherman at the boat wish they were you, then get you a Ranger Boat, because they will turn heads at the boat ramp. Oh yea I didnÕt mention how many times I have had people to pull me over going down the road because they wanted to look at my Ranger. Keep up the great work, IÕm looking forward to ordering my new Ranger.

My wife and I recently purchased a 2012 Z518 Comanche with a Mercury 200 Pro XS. We upgraded to the tandem trailer, hotfoot, trim on wheel, and bucket seats. With all the other standard features the 500 series Rangers come with, it is truly the best performing bass boat I have been in to date. Thanks Ranger Boats for building my dream bass boat!!!!

I just traded my Ranger Reata for a new 2013 Z518 with tandem trailer. Love what I have seen so far. Looking foward to getting into the structure scan and finding those fish hinding places. Only hate that I did the change in Dec.

Took delivery on my Z518 and it surprised me by the way this rig jumps on plane. I fished with a 250 lb. partner that had a huge tackle bag to boot and it made no difference. I dumped the hot foot to see how much water was gonna come over the back and the water never got close to the carpet. Still not running at WOT, but it continues to perform and the 18' 8" profile makes it easy to get in those tighter areas to fish.

Took delivery of my new Z518 just a couple of weeks ago. Always knew my next boat would be a Ranger and took the opportunity to order the boat of my dreams when the 2010 models became available. The Z518 is a perfect boat for my fishing needs and performs beyond my wildest expectations. Equipped with the Mercury 200 Pro XS, it gets on plane super quick and flat out flies on the top end. I have definitely become a Ranger Owner for life.

I traded in my 1999 Ranger 518 DVX for a new Ranger Z518. I am impressed with everything on this boat just as I was with my 1999 Ranger but more so. The ride, quality, workmanship, etc. is nothing less than excellent. I never had any issues with my 1999 Ranger and I am sure my new Ranger Z518 will do the same. I have had my new Ranger Z518 for 3 months now and love this bass boat. I would suggest that anyone thinking of buying a bass boat seriously consider the purchase of a Ranger. You will not ever be disappointed in your purchase.

Z518 Love It!!!!!!!!!!!

Spring of 2010 I bought a bass boat that I will keep un-named at this time. I only had that boat 4 months and my wife and I were so disappointed in it we parked it in the driveway and did not care to go out in it. My parents own a Ranger and that's what I should have gone for off the start. I traded the boat in mid-summer at DT Powersports for a Z518 with the new 200 Yamaha SHO and words cannot say how happy we are with this boat. All I can say is that the only boat my wife and I will ever own is a Ranger, they are a dream rig!
