Ranger Boats announced a new line of pontoon boats for 2017: Reata by Ranger. The line pulls inspiration from Ranger’s Reata series of fish-and-play designs and features the same quality and features of a Ranger boat.
“With so much versatility and comfort, we’ve seen the pontoon segment attract more and more families each year,” said Ranger Boats Director of Product Development Lance Newton. “We’re excited to offer these customers a product paired with the same craftsmanship and attention to detail we put in all Ranger designs, as well as the long list of 5-Star advantages that come with it.”
The Reata by Ranger pontoon line combines Ranger’s fishing heritage with sporting capabilities. The new Reata pontoon series consists of seven models ranging in length from 20 to 25 feet in both fish and cruise designs. The product offering includes three Fish models – 200F, 220F and 223F – and four Cruise models: 200C, 220C, 223C and 243C. Both series also include high performance, triple tube models with 26-inch diameter logs complete with lifting strakes.
The new designs feature amenities such as powder-coated pontoon logs, vinyl flooring, fiberglass consoles, automotive-inspired dash designs and fully-wrapped custom upholstery. All models also feature wheelchair-accessible interior swinging gates, phone management systems and thicker, extended side panels for added safety and comfort.
As with all Ranger boats, these new Reata models will include standard equipment such as a snapless mooring cover, easy-to-deploy top, stainless steel boarding ladder, reclining captain’s chairs and tilt steering all come standard. Both the fish and cruise series offer a multitude of configurations to fit each customer’s needs.
The fish models feature aerated livewells, Lowrance Hook 5 electronics, rod storage and are pre-wired for easy installation of trolling motors available from Minn Kota and Motorguide. A fishing station with tool and rod holders, lockable 7-foot, 6-inch rod box with organizer and multiple livewells are also available, dependent upon model.
The cruise models sport full-width swim platforms, storage, custom upholstery, a stowable changing enclosure, LED courtesy lighting throughout, port and starboard bow lounges, stowable table, 12V and USB outlets, Kicker stereo with Bluetooth input and built-in L.E.D. navigation lights and docking lights.
Each Reata by Ranger model is available with the choice of a factory-rigged Mercury, Evinrude or Yamaha outboard and comes in several rich color packages.
