(Friday, May 19,2000 - Flippin, AR) For years, saltwater anglers have looked to Ranger for a wide variety of exceptional fishing boats. Now, they have another reason to look to the nation's largest manufacturer of premium quality fishing boats for their sportfishing needs - the all-new 2180 Bay Ranger.

Ranger Boats President Randy Hopper states, "We're very excited about the 2180. With its introduction, we're adding even more diversity to a lineup that keeps evolving, innovating and improving. The 2180 encompasses everything sportfisherman have come to expect from our boats - a smooth dry ride, a broad beam for shallow draft and stability, as well as outstanding performance and fishability."

The 2180 Bay Ranger joins the 175C, 190C, and 200C, center console boats that are equally at home in both saltwater bays and freshwater lakes, and the 164 and 184 Caymans, favorites among flats and shallow water anglers.

Measuring 21' 8" in length and rated for a maximum 225 horsepower, the 2180's versatility makes it the ideal rig for chasing snook, redfish, tarpon, cobia and a host of other coastal and in-shore species. Inside, the broad 8' 4" beam delivers greater stability and a large, unobstructed casting deck. Extra wide 8" gunnels add up to a 360° fishing platform, and make walking big fish around the boat extremely easy. Inside the hull, layers of 'zone-tempered' fiberglass combine with Ranger's exclusive pultruded fiberglass transom, fiberglass gussets and fiberglass stringer system to transfer a solid, one-piece feel to the ride and handling of the boat.

With the addition of the all-new 2180 Bay Ranger, the line of premium inshore fishing boats from Ranger just got a little wider. And, the quality of saltwater angling just got raised a little higher

Ranger Boats, headquartered in Flippin, Arkansas, is the nation's largest manufacturer of premium fiberglass fishing boats. In addition to the Sportfisherman Series, Ranger also manufactures a popular line of more than 40 freshwater fishing boats. With emphasis on building the best boats in the world, Ranger Boats is still building legends-one at a time.
