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.

Ranger 168 Phantom

Boat Description

With an ultra shallow draft, zero hull slap at any wind angle, an incredibly smooth ride, and solid beam-to-beam stability, the Ranger 168 Phantom sets higher standards for extreme shallow water performance. Deck and cockpit space exceeds any other boat in its class and the oversized gunnels deliver a true 360-degree fishing surface. At the stern, a unique, forward-canted poling platform is engineered for optimum weight distribution and a level profile front to rear. The overall design balance reinforces its noticeably shallow draft while providing even easier poling. Combined with a tournament-sized live release well and baitwell, recessed trim tabs, flush-mounted push pole holders, and a fully featured aluminum RangerTrail trailer, the 168 Phantom is taking shallow water performance to the next level.
