Ranger boats were some of the first ever designed to specifically target a single species of fish – the largemouth bass. Since this is the most popular freshwater gamefish in the country, it made sense to delve into details like release wells, casting decks, rod lockers, and electric trolling motor systems which would assist the anglers targeting them. And Ranger made a name for itself doing so. Then this company went a step father, taking Ranger Boats into competitive bassing with performance that is literally eye-watering.
Pads, set-backs, notches, and other hull tweaks were designed in along with construction techniques like pultrusion, urethane core sandwiches, and digital switching, to ensure that these boats are tough enough to match up with their performance potential - which includes blistering speeds and hair-pin turning ability. Today, Ranger has expanded its line to include not just bass boats but also general fishing boats in both fresh and saltwater models, an aluminum series, and even some “Fish-N-Play” multi-purpose boats.
Measuring 17 feet, 7 inches in length with an 87-inch beam, the Ranger 175T carries a 23 gallon fuel capacity and is rated for a maximum of 75 horsepower. Available with a wide range of precision-matched outboards, the 175 features an instrument panel with a full complement of gauges and rocker switch controls and comes standard with Lowrance electronics. Generous storage areas are integrated throughout the design, including an insulated cooler and baitwell, and a pair of lockable rod storages with room for rods up to 9 feet, 6 inches in length. Additional standard features include an on-board battery charger, premium marine upholstery, an oversized 50-inch livewell and a slip-resistant front casting deck and cockpit capped with removable, snap-in carpet.
