NEW PRODUCT: Ranger Adds to Its Z Series Line of Bass Boats

From Ranger Boats

Ranger's commitment to custom building dreams for anglers everywhere dates back to the company's beginning nearly 45 years ago. To that end, it continues to reinforce the legendary performance and top-shelf features for which the brand it so well known by introducing another impressive addition to the popular Z Series lineup.

Measuring 17 feet, 6 inches and rated for 115 horsepower, the all-new Ranger Z117 is available with a wide range of precision-matched outboards and delivers the advanced fishability and best-in-class heritage of the Ranger Z Series for under $30,000. In addition to the incredible price tag, show-stopping great looks and Ranger's well-known resale values, this boat and matching single-axle trailer can be easily towed with compact trucks and SUVs and will fit into most garages.

Plus, the popular 115-horsepower designation consumes less fuel and oil - making the Ranger Z117 accessible to anglers who would otherwise be forced to purchase used boats or boats that lack Ranger's reputation for quality and fishability.

"We challenged ourselves to build the biggest 17-foot boat out there and, when you see how much fishing and storage space this rig touts, it's easy to understand how strong it performs - even when compared to so many supposedly larger 18-footers on the market," said Ranger Boats Vice President of Sales Keith Daffron.

"Ranger's legendary Z Series is in this boat's DNA - you can see it and you can feel it when you're fishing or powering across the water. It's loaded with features that serious anglers expect from a Ranger."

Featuring a racecar-inspired console with a full complement of gauges, the Ranger Z117 comes standard with a flush-mount, Lowrance Mark-5X Pro, Minn Kota Maxxum 55SC trolling motor and recessed foot pedal plus an onboard Dual-Pro charger. Electronics up to eight inches can be flush mounted at the console, while at the bow the boat can accommodate electronics up to five inches.
