Affordability meets quality craftsmanship and big-time performance
FLIPPIN, Ark. – Ranger® Boats' latest offering from its acclaimed Saltwater Series – the 2260 Bay Ranger – will debut at the 2017 Miami International Boat Show, Feb. 16-20, at Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin. The all-new 2260 Bay Ranger packs big-time performance and Ranger's legendary quality in a value-priced package.
While the 21-foot, five-inch bay boat is the smallest offering of the Ranger Saltwater Series, its enhanced design delivers big-water capabilities. Rated for a 200 horsepower outboard, the 2260 Bay Ranger provides high performance with smaller horsepower motors and is more maneuverable than larger rigs. And like all Ranger models, the 2260 Bay Ranger is available with a wide range of precision-matched and factory-rigged outboards, giving anglers a wide variety of engine options unmatched anywhere in the marine industry.
"The 2260 Bay Ranger gives boaters Ranger's high-quality performance and features at an entry-level price," said Ranger Saltwater Business Manager Larry Jett. "Whether chasing redfish in the shallows or heading out off-shore, the 2260 delivers more value with the tradition of quality craftsmanship Ranger owners have come to expect."
The center console design and improved non-skid pattern on flooring and decks provide a stable, 360-degree casting platform to work fish end-to-end or side-to-side. Agile and able to draft in as little as 12 inches of water, the 2260 Bay Ranger sports an ultra-stable 101-inch beam and Ranger's legendary upright, level floatation standards.
Standard features include a pultruded fiberglass transom, fiberglass stringer system, aerated livewell, custom-fitted premium marine upholstery, leaning post, stainless steel tie cleats and automatic bilge pump. At the console, a host of gauges display speed, rpm, fuel, trim and water pressure levels. Rod holders adorn each side of the console for quick access to fishing gear.
The front casting deck, with molded-in steps, doubles as anchor locker along with port and starboard rod boxes for rods up to eight feet. Molded-in rear jump seats fold down for a convenient back casting deck and give access to a boarding ladder.
The all-new 2260 Bay Ranger comes paired with its own single-axle trailer for easy towing. Equipped with aluminum steel fenders, the trailer includes an aluminum frame, torsion axle suspension, locking, swing-away tongue, L.E.D. lights, aluminum wheels, 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 2260 Bay Ranger at the Ranger Boats at booth B205.
