Big water, Big time fun

The new VX1988WT is a full featured, performance built boat, with unmatched quality to take you on the biggest and roughest waters. The VX series borrows design cues from Ranger’s fiberglass Reata® fish-n-play series of proven winners with families and tournament-savvy anglers alike. Huge electronics, clever storages and a wealth of premium seating deliver comfort and class for any activity. Buoyed by Ranger’s all-welded, foam-filled and wood-free construction with .125” aluminum, the VX1988WT is a solid platform for whatever the day holds. Non-skid cockpit flooring, a Bluetooth stereo, with USB and 12V outlets highlight the interior while a 7’6” center rod locker, standard Minn Kota® trolling motor and Lowrance® electronics get you on the fish in a hurry. Whether it’s a day out with your family or fishing the tournament circuit this boat can handle it all.
