What Makes A Ranger?

Quality Construction

Why is a Ranger® the best bet in aluminum boats? Wood-free, all-welded construction are two great places to start. Back those up with our unflinching eye toward quality, and you’ve got a dependable, durable rig tailor-made for whatever moves you.

Wood-Free But Strong As An Oak

Ranger® aluminum boats are designed for performance, durability and utility in mind. Whether you choose the RT189P with a 150-horsepower outboard or one of our White River Jons, you’re getting the most boat and highest level of quality for your dollar. Our competition-ready tournament bass line is what has helped make Ranger® the fastest-growing aluminum brand in America, but it’s our attention to detail and passion for perfection that keeps our customers satisfied no matter what rig they choose.

All-welded, wood-free construction gives you peace of mind on long runs and in big water. Plus, every RT and deep V series boat is filled with foam for upright, level flotation that exceeds standards set by the Coast Guard and greatly reduced hull slap for a stealthy approach every time. No matter the model, we fret over every detail and weld to deliver a class-leading product every time.

Our MPVs (Multi-Purpose Vessels) are hammer tough, have thoughtful designs and will stand up to whatever you can throw at them. In other words, they’re  Engineered to Excel™and Built to be Yours®.
