Lake Erie is a rough and unpredictable place. When I head out on the big water, I rest in knowing I'm in the toughest, safest, and smoothest riding bass boat in the business. Dave LeFebre

Grew up fishing in a Ranger with my Dad. Spent 21 years in the Navy on BIG gray boats, retired and bought a Z21-I. Decided I wanted the new 2015 Z521c, gave my Dad the 2013 Z21-I and I just picked up my new 2015 Z521c! Ranger will always be in our family. Going to contact the shop and see about having the 1983 Ranger refurbished for my son. The best boats ever built. Thank ya'll for bringing our family together and creating some of the best days in my childhood... fishing with Dad.

I've had my 2014 Z521c for 7 months now and every single person (no exaggeration) comments on how smooth and solid the boat feels. The most common phrase is, "I love your boat." That's great, because so do I!!! Thanks, Ranger Boats for making this FLW/BFL fisherman one happy customer!
This is my third Ranger and by far the best Ranger boat I have ever owned. I bought the Z521C from Willie at Nixon Marine. Before buying the new boat I had fished with Steven Johnston at Toledo Bend and Sam Rayburn a few times. I asked Steven what he thought about the new Z521C, and he said "Ranger did it right on this boat". I have to agree. Thanks Willie, Steven, and Ranger.
I will always be in the Ranger Family. I had a 06 Z20 and now just picked up a 2015 Z521c and love this boat. Bought it off Vic Sports Center, These guys are top notch. I can't drive down the road without someone saying awesome boat. Best boat ever... don't know how you could possibly make them better. The worst part is I can't stop waxing it - wife says I'm nuts.
I just picked up my third Ranger. I ran another brand for years until 2012 when I got my first Z521. WOW!! Wish I had been in them way earlier. From comfort to attention to detail, they are by far the best bass boats on the market. Keep up the good work guys!! Thanks for the great ride I have in my new 2016 Z521c!!
Picked my new Ranger Z521c w/Yamaha 250 SHO up from Augusta Marine in Georgia. Took it out on my home waters of Lake Anna, VA and WOW, this is the Cadillac of bass boats... Takeoff to plane is 2 seconds. Fishing platform is great. I love My Ranger!

... Now that my career is peeking, I could afford any new boat I wanted. On December 31, 2014 I finally bought my dream rig from Augusta Marine. A 2014 Ranger Z521c. This boat is truly the apex of all bass fishing boats. Thanks to the Ranger engineers for continuing to lead the industry on comfort and performance. I am a Ranger fanatic for life.
My new 2014 Ranger 521C is the Mac Daddy of bass boats. I am so impressed with the engineering, craftsmanship and quality of the boat from comfort to safety. The technology built into the boat enhances its fishability for someone like me who really enjoys a good day on the water with family and friends. A Ranger Boat is the boat to own.
The Z521C is an engineering masterpiece... form, fit, finish and safety are unmatched. The most beautiful Ranger boat I've ever owned. Everything a fisherman would want in a boat the Z521C has it and more. The attention to detail is remarkable! What makes this Z521C special are the new bow lights built into the fiberglass, remote plug, oversized tires and chrome wheels on the trailer, giant glove box, ventilated rod storage system and new wider redesigned front deck and hull. This boat is a head-turner from bow to stern. Don't know how the Ranger design team keeps coming up with innovative, functional and appealing designs year after year, but this new 2014 Z521C is the epitome of beauty and flawless design.
This is my second Z521. My current Z521c is rigged with 250 Pro Verado, power poles, three Lowrance HD 9's touch. The 2014 model has so many improvements from my 2013. From wider, more storage that even me the ultimate tackle geek can be happy with. I tournament fish and recently actually loaned my boat to a Ranger sales rep who I consider a complete expert. He has sold and owned countless boats and he agrees with me that this is best boat he has ever had the pleasure to drive and operate. At one point they were in semi rough water and running 68 with full fuel, live wells and one of them was over 250lbs and passing other boats. The Pro Verado on the 521c is a keeper package. I will never go back as this is the easiest boat to not only own but to operate. Not only can I run to my spots faster than before, I can actually carry a conversation with the other person in the boat without a ton of wind or motor noise. Perfect boat!

Just took delivery of my new Ranger Z521c. What an awesome boat. Thank you to everyone at Ranger for building my dream rig and thanks to Aaron Green and Rex Pendergrass at Watson's Marine in Bluff City, TN for the great deal. They are the best.
I love my Ranger Boats!! Simply put. I just picked up my second Ranger this week. I previously had a Ranger 188VX Comanche and what a great boat and decided to take the step up and traded up to the Z521c with a 250 Evinrude!! All I can say is WOW!! These boats are truly awesome!! I am a Ranger guy through and through and I can tell you that will never change! Had a great experience as I did with my first Ranger dealing with DT Powersports in Uxbridge, ON Canada, top notch folks that know their Ranger boats and know how to take care of their customers!
