Ranger

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.

Boat Description

Feature after feature, the RT188 Ranger® is built to be an angler's dream. Not only is it incredibly affordable but, with such strong attention to detail, this ultra-fishable, all-out fishing machine is built to be in a class by itself. Inside, storage and fishing space abounds. The front deck is broad, stable and wide open, making it easy to work fish, even when sharing the elevated platform. Extra-large gear lockers balance both sides of the front deck while the tournament-designed center box is equipped with individual tubes for rods up to a whopping 8' 6" in length. Elsewhere, the front deck includes another bonus with the comfort and convenience of a recessed pedal for the factory-rigged Minn Kota® trolling motor. Available as a single or dual console model, the RT188's cockpit features a flush-mounted Lowrance depthfinder and full array of switching as well as speed, tach, fuel and trim gauges. The added good looks, strength and quality of a fiberglass console deliver yet another bonus since the helm isn't prone to flex like cheaper designs. More highlights include custom marine upholstery, hand-fitted for optimum comfort. Passenger assist straps, integrated cup holders, rod straps on the front deck, a removable cooler, on-board charger and a cranking battery further combine to give this rig a superior level of fit, finish and function. Elsewhere, the rear deck houses even more storage as well as an oversized, aerated livewell with free-flow divider and automatic timer. It's a full-featured system punctuated with design strengths like upright, level flotation, all-aluminum floors and decks, an aluminum transom with pultruded fiberglass reinforcement, choice of custom colors and wide range of factory-rigged outboards. Coupled with a custom Ranger Trail® trailer with deluxe wheels, swing-away tongue, waterproof lights and our torture-tough Road Armor Equipped® finish, this is the kind of opportunity you've been waiting for. Solid, responsive and packed with serious fishing performance, experience the NMMA-certified RT188. It's built to out-fish, out-perform and out-class... all while carrying the right kind of quality, looks and features - at your kind of price.
