Ranger Releases the VS1780 Aluminum Deep V

New for 2014: rangervs1780

 Ranger Releases the VS1780 Aluminum Deep V


New design brings Ranger quality and aluminum accessibility to multi-species anglers nationwide.

Ranger’s acclaimed roster of aluminum bass, crappie and multipurpose boats continue to be one of the industry’s best-selling product lines as the brand’s strong heritage, quality construction and innovative design resonates with boat buyers. This year, Ranger Boats is poised to introduce another category to the most sought-after aluminum boats on the water, the all-new Ranger Aluminum Deep V Series.

With more models planned for introduction in the coming year, the new Ranger Aluminum Deep V Series will deliver feature-laden boats complete with a solid, all-welded aluminum hull constructed without the use of any wood components. Upright, level foam flotation adds even more confidence, stability, and security to this ultra-quiet design, as proven with the new VS1780.

“We’ve incorporated so many key elements we’ve learned and developed in our years of building the most popular and best-performing multispecies fiberglass boats into the new Ranger Aluminum Deep V Series,” said Ranger Boats President Randy Hopper. “The 1780, in particular, features a solid, one-piece feel and the peace of mind that comes with quality construction and attention to detail – all starting at under $20,000 in some configurations.”

Measuring 17 feet, 8 inches with a 96-inch beam, the Ranger Aluminum VS1780 is rated for outboards ranging in horsepower from 90-135. Equipped with a 24-gallon fuel tank, the boat offers plenty of fishing space on its expansive front deck as well as the ability to accommodate kicker motors.
