Ranger Boats introduces fish, cruise pontoons

Ranger Boats brings together the best of both worlds with the introduction of the new Ranger Reata 223FC and 220FC.

The all-new boats combine features for both cruising and fishing into multi-use designs to accommodate families and anglers.

"We pride ourselves on listening to our customers and dealers on their wants and needs in our product lines," said Bart Schad, Ranger Boats vice president of sales and marketing. "We have incorporated that feedback into these new models to create an ideal fish/cruise line that exceeds the needs of everyone on board. Combined with the upgraded aesthetics throughout the entire pontoon line, we have seen tremendous response and look forward to officially bringing these new boats to market."

The new pontoons' fish-and-play design brings together a host of creature comforts for pleasure cruising and fishing features valued by anglers.

Both the 223FC and 220FC have a large front deck with a comfortable couch with storage underneath and two new helm seats with self-leveling armrests. A port side gate with a new stainless steel latch offers wheelchair access to the deck.

Another lounging couch sits midship on the port side with additional storage hidden underneath. The custom, color-matched console with a new glove box door will accept electronics up to seven inches.

A larger Bimini top, also new for 2019, straddles the railings midship for extra protection from the elements.

The stern houses two all-new fishing chairs and a fishing station, replete with an aerated livewell with integrated baitwell bucket, storage compartment, cup holders and tool holders. A back gate with an updated stainless steel latch gives access to the boarding platform with ladder.

Both the interior and exterior incorporate new fencing and exoskeleton that accommodates an optional trolling motor mounted on the bow along with updated graphics reminiscent of Ranger's fiberglass boats. All the new furniture features fully-wrapped custom upholstery with rich accents and integrated LED lighting.

Each model offers a choice of grey or tan interiors complete with matching woven flooring covering the deck from bow to stern. Not to be outdone, the pontoon logs feature a rich, powder-coated finish, available in either black or charcoal for a fully custom look.

The 223FC and 220FC measure 24 feet, 2 inches, in overall length and 102 inches across. Both models are available with a wide selection of factory rigged outboards.

The original line of Ranger pontoon boats - 200F, 220F, 223F, 200C, 220C, 223C, 243C - have adopted the new fit and finish brought by the new Fish & Cruise models.

These existing boats also received the updated seating, graphics, flooring, fence design with rounded corners, bold graphics, chrome badging and console.

Available in several color packages, Ranger Reata pontoons are competitively priced for a variety of budgets and are backed by one of the strongest warranties in the pontoon business.
