Ranger Boats's new 2360 Bay Ranger will debut at the 2017 Miami International Boat Show, Feb. 16-20, at Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin on Virginia Key. The new offering is the latest from Ranger's Saltwater Series.
Measuring 23 feet, 5 inches, the 2360 is rated for up to a 300 horsepower outboard and houses an 81-gallon tank. Ranger Boats says the boat is able to draft in as little as 13 inches of water, giving anglers the confidence and stealth few other bay boats offer. The 2360 also comes with the choice of a custom hard top or a factory-rigged second station tower.
Available in a multitude of color options, the boat's Carolina flare design functions aesthetically and is built to provide a smooth, dry ride. Underwater L.E.D. lighting extends swim times, attracts bait and provides aesthetics while under power.
"Consumers looking for a big-boat ride in a trimmer package will find the 2360 Bay Ranger will fit all of their needs," said Ranger Saltwater Business Manager Larry Jett. "The 2360 gives anglers a serious fishing rig along with a touch of comfort, luxury and eye-pleasing styling, whether fishing tournaments or relaxing with the family."
The open design and center console layout provide 360 degrees of open area to work fish around the boat. The front deck has molded-in steps and lockable storage with a port side rod box, drained starboard storage that doubles as a fish box, and a forward anchor locker. The front deck also holds a 120-quart integrated fiberglass cooler while stand-up rod holders are located on the console and along the gunnels. At the stern, two jump seats fold down to create a flush rear casting deck.
The helm is designed to accommodate multiple large-screen electronics and houses a cluster of multi-function gauges for speed, rpm, fuel, trim and water pressure. The captain's leaning post features premium upholstery and houses a lighted 40-gallon baitwell. The center console includes an additional jump seat as well as walk-in access for an optional head. More standard features include Ranger's upright, level flotation standards, custom-fitted marine upholstery, integrated cup and tool holders, L.E.D. navigation lights, hydraulic jack plate, pultruded fiberglass transom, fiberglass stringer system, stainless steel tie cleats, console rail, and molded-in trade dress.
The 2360 Bay Ranger comes paired with its own custom-built, tandem-axle Ranger Trail trailer. Equipped with stainless steel fenders and built on-site, the Ranger Trail trailer includes an aluminum frame, torsion axle suspension, locking, swing-away tongue, LED lights, aluminum wheels, retractable tie downs, a patented center swing jack stand, and Ranger's COOL Hub lubrication system as standard equipment.
Miami International Boat Show attendees can see the new 2360 Bay Ranger at Ranger Boats booth B205, as well as on-water demos on Pier 3.
