NEW FOR 2010: RANGER 621VS FISHERMAN

Proven hull, best-in-class features combine to make the ultimate multi-species rig

FLIPPIN, ARK (July 20, 2009) Multi-species anglers have specific features in mind when it comes to selecting the boat that will take them to the best walleye or musky fishing. Whether it's in a tournament or just for fun, these boats need to be as versatile as any big-water angler's fishing presentations; as open and spacious as the waters they fish and designed for proven performance. The new 621VS Fisherman from Ranger Boats delivers on all counts. With a layout and feature set suited for the modern tournament angler, guide or hardcore fishing family, the 621VS Fisherman blends the best of Ranger's multi-species boats with the intuitive and efficient enhancements that anglers demand.

Sporting all-new dress trim from Ranger, the 621VS Fisherman provides a distinctive and performance-inspired appearance on the water. With more keel built into the popular, proven hull design for easier maneuvering on big, rough water, the boat delivers an even smoother, drier ride. Rated for a beefy 300 horsepower and available – like all Rangers – with a wide range of precision-matched outboards, the 621VS Fisherman balances mechanical performance to tame the toughest conditions with increased interior comforts and a bevy of integrated storage options.

Measuring 21 feet, 5 inches with a 99.5-inch beam, the 621VS Fisherman holds 55 gallons of fuel in its single tank, which is mounted below the cockpit for enhanced load distribution, better ride and increased performance. Capable of long runs to the most lucrative and secluded fishing spots, anglers will benefit from the 24V Minn Kota Fortrex trolling motor with recessed foot pedal and console-mounted Lowrance X-135 electronics, all complete with a 15x3 on-board battery charger.

Comfort and convenience features within the boat are highlighted by a redesigned, open floor plan which provides additional dry storage by storing the trolling motor batteries in the floor while also generating 15% more floor space. In the cockpit, an all-new console provides room for in-dash mounting of today's popular, large-screen electronics – including units as large as the new HDS10 from Lowrance. Elsewhere in the cockpit, a new gear management system featuring built-in cup holders and tool organizers is integrated alongside the driver and passenger seats, while snap-in carpet allows for easy maintenance and clean-up.

"Some of the best multi-species waters in North America have at least one thing in common: notoriously rough water. If you're going to be successful – and dry – when you take on these fisheries, you have to have a boat that performs," said Ranger pro and veteran walleye angler Tommy Skarlis. "The hull of the new 621VS Fisherman has more keel that's designed to tackle these big waters and delivers a competitive edge you won't find in other boats."

Paired with a custom-built, tandem-axle, RangerTrail trailer featuring LED lights, the 621VS Fisherman is easier to maneuver and enjoys the smooth trailering benefits of custom alignment and individually balanced wheels. Up front, the center swing jack retracts flush to the frame and creates a more balanced load, making it even more secure on the trailer. Combined with matching fiberglass fenders, stylish new aluminum wheels, matching spare, exclusive oil bath COOL Hub® lubrication system, torsion axle suspension, and swing-away tongue, the RangerTrail trailer delivers long-lasting peace of mind and easy towing.
