Spanning more than 50 years, Ranger Boats has crafted an extensive lineup of fiberglass and aluminum saltwater and freshwater boats, plus fishing and cruising pontoons.
Each new boat fills a specific niche, while classics are continually tweaked. Ranger-pioneered innovations are now industry standards. It famously led the way toward new US Coast Guard flotation standards, through its addition of safety-foam flotation material. Ranger also patented the aerated livewell, which keeps fish frisky for post-tournament release.
Ranger’s fiberglass boats have a patented pultruded fiberglass transom, fiberglass knee braces, and a fiberglass stringer system that dampens engine and rough-water vibration, optimizing its stable ride.
Ranger 2510 Bay
Ready to step up your fishing game in a big bay boat? The redesigned 2510 Bay Ranger will take you there.
The 2510 is already famous for its soft ride and Carolina flare, reverse chines, easy-access head compartment with a large, shock-supported door, diamond nonskid surface, and raw-water and freshwater washdowns. Lockable rod storage with rod organizers are included in port side and accomodate rods up to 9’.
A 40 gallon recirculated livewell with 2200gph aerated flow, a handy crustacean well aft and a 26-gallon forward livewell give plenty of bait-keeping options. A 210-quart insulated fish box with a large drain can -alternately supply dry storage.
Now the 2510 comes refreshed, with deft touches including a larger back deck that drains water from the rear deck box channels. The bow cooler/livewell latch is now stainless steel, and the console door’s larger gas shock eliminates slamming in rough seas.
A massive fuel tank and -horsepower-rating boost to 400 means you can go far and get there fast. Fold-down aft seatstuck away quickly at fishing time. Gunwales and transom rod holders total eight—more than most offshore and inshore survey respondents say they need.
A larger hydraulic jack plate, trim tabs and a Ranger Trail trailer are standard; hardtop, second station, shallow-water anchors, trolling motor, bow cushions, backrests and handrails are optional.
