I found an 18.8 ft 1978 Ranger 188v bass boat in a overgrown weed patch, it was a stripped out shell. Little by little I restored it. Found a tough 100 hp Mercury and I strapped all 100 horses to the back of my silver and grey baby doll. It is a little fireball. Wont trade it for any other boat. Forrest L. Wood you make an awesome boat!!!!!! Thanks!
I have had my 198VX for a couple of months. I am definitely a Ranger woman now!!!!!
I Love My Ranger
I'm a disabled veteran and have owned and fished out of a lot of boats. I have just purchased a 98 R61 Sport Ranger boat and have fell in love. It is one of the best boats I have ever been in and want to thank you Ranger Boats for making such a great boat. Thank you for your support to the men and women of the armed forces.
I just purchased my first Ranger boat about 3 weeks ago and love the new aluminum style boat! Lots of power with the 75 HP Evinrude E-Tec and fast to plane and just an all around sweet ride. Got the lakes chip for my Lowrance Elite 5 DSI and it is incredible what it can tell you. Thanks Ranger and Central Marine in Carlos, MN for the new toy!
My New Ranger
I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone at Ranger. My newest Ranger is a Z520C Anniversary Edition. It is indeed my dream rig. It's the finest boat I've ever fished in. Thanks again to everyone at Ranger Boats for building my dream rig.
It will be one year next week since picking up my Z118 from Angler's Port Marine in Warsaw, Mo. Pete and the guys (and girls) were so genuine and friendly in making it happen. What a great boat and all around versatile rig for fishing. The storage is awesome for this size boat. And finally, so economical to run with the Mercury Pro XS 150. Couldn't be more pleased! Thanks Ranger.
Ranger 250 cc
I own a 1993 Ranger 250cc. I am re-powering the boat. I looked and could not find a better built boat even today in this size. I truly think this will be my last offshore boat. I will have her from now on.
Yup - I was all set on a new boat from a different brand, but the my dealer had a RANGER Z118 on his show room floor. One look and I was hooked. Me and the wife have fished out of our new Ranger several times now and we love it. This boat is awesome from the livewell to the insulated cooler.
The Wait Is Over
I have been fishing ever since I was five years and I have always dreamed of having a bass boat. Up til this year I couldn't afford one. I started looking in the spring at all the different bass boats out there and did my home work. I went to M-W Marine and bought my first bass boat a Z118. Boy I love it and yes its going to be part of the family for years to come. Thank you Chuck at M-W Marine for your help. Thank you Ranger Boats for such a quality boat.
Love my Ranger Boat
Just traded in my 2007 Ranger 519 VX Tour Edition. This boat was my first Ranger and we are sad to see it go. But my wife and I just bought our dream boat a Z520C Nascar Edition. Bunch Marine in TN is rigging to the way we want it. Curtis and the crew are fantastic to deal with. Hope to pick up with in a week. My wife and I fish couple tournaments together and are proud to own a Ranger.
I finally had to replace the trailer tires on my 2000 Ranger 620VS! Fourteen years and the tires still had tread worth thousands of miles left, but the years had taken its toll on the tires in between the tread and they had started to weather crack. I love this boat and it still looks as good as the day I bought it.
We recently purchased a new Z518 (our first bass boat) and I have to say this is a "beast". It fishes like a much larger boat and clearly is in a class of it's own!
Thanks Ranger for making the Z518 the fishing machine that it is!!
