Nothing Is Better
Having three Rangers..a 1989 361, a 1997 451, and a 1999 R81, I can honestly without a doubt say Ranger Boats are the best boats money can buy. I'll never own anything else and once someone has owned one they will say the same thing... hands down there is nothing better! Also want to say thanks to Bud Leininger at Ranger Boats for his very helpful and expert information and help. A+ customer service.
We recently picked up our 2nd Ranger. A 620VS. After running a 619 we knew the next boat had to be a Ranger. I've ran many other brands, but nothing comes close to the ease of boat control with a Ranger Fishermen model. Hoping the ice melts soon!!!
Purchased the Z117 in October from Cabela's of Gonzales, LA. Great experience all around, from sales, service, & factory follow up. The boats ride and performance has been as I expected from Ranger. Many features that are optional on other boats come standard on this model. In combination with Mercury's 115 Pro XS it has proven to be very economical and efficient. Great ride and very stable fishing platform with plenty of room when family comes along.
I got my first Ranger last spring from Central Marine in Carlos, MN. After years of aluminum I cannot get over the difference. I ordered the boat new and had my own paint scheme put on it, using Rangers colors of course. The people all the way thru the system were a great help in answering questions and helping me thru the process. I fish mostly on Northern MN lakes and some in Canada and cannot get over the quality and smooth ride in the rough waters. I have the new Mercury 4 stroke 150 on it and we made 100 flawless hours last season with it. Can't wait for the ice to go out this year.
I Got a 1984 375V Ranger
It took 30 years to get one, lol, but its a great boat!
I Love My Ranger
This is my first Ranger. Man do I love it. Got the Ranger Z118 last year. It's great.
I Love My R93
I was in search of a good boat and I found a great boat. A 1998 R93 with a 200hp Vindicator. It sat in the TX weather for 5 years, but after some tender loving care it is an awesome fishing machine. I have had other brand boat owners fish with me and tell me what a great ride and boat I have. I will just keep upgrading all the accessories because this boat design is near perfect. Even in 2012!
Bought my boat from my brother-in-law about 15 years ago.(He bought a 20 footer since he was a part time guide on the Potomac.) I truly love my 1986 373. Had to put a new motor on her in 2003, but we're still winning tournaments together.
New Ranger Z520C
I had posted earlier about moving to Louisiana and buying my Ranger Ghost, but had just ordered my new Z520C.
Well...I got it last week from Cabela's in Gozales, LA. I did the Mercury break in thing on Friday and fished the West Pearl River on Sunday in our local club tournament (oh yeah, I won as well).
Ranger you've certainly outdone yourselves, from the live well covers, the measuring board at the ready, the running lights built in, having my plier holders as well as a cup holder in front of me all day to putting the cooler in the right place. And the most important thing of all, no more adjusting my HDS 10 so I could see it, its now mounted in the dash where it's suppose to be. I just wanted to say, I truly would not fish out of any another boat. Did I mention the trailer with the full plug built in, a parking brake and custom racing wheels....she even looks amazing.
Thanks Ranger Boats and FLW...
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.
Ranger Reata 210
Just bought my first Ranger. This 2001 Fish/Ski looks brand new. Glad previous owner took great care of it. Super excited about spring time. Can't wait to enjoy it with the family.
Hi, my name is Kurt Bergstrom and I have been a Ranger owner since 1999. I have been to Flippin and really enjoyed the tour and facility and cannot tell you how fortunate I feel to be a part of the Ranger "family". I really appreciate the fact that if I have an issue whatsoever I can call Ranger and actually talk to someone. Today I had an experience with one of your drivers that says a lot for the type of company you are running. He was delivering an 1850 Reata to Anglers Edge in Loves Park, Illinois and the boats are unloaded offsite by my shop. Today the driver (name unknown) was so cordial and knowledgable about the Ranger product. It was wonderful to hear him compare Ranger to any other boat on the market today. It was below freezing temperatures and he took the time to talk.
