NEW FOR 2011: RANGER 620VS FISHERMAN
Proven hull, best-in-class features update this tournament proven multi-species rigFLIPPIN, AR (July 22, 2010) Ranger's 620VS Fisherman has long been a mainstay among multi-species anglers across the country. Whether pursuing monster walleye, musky, pike or anything in between, the 620VS delivers the ability for anglers to successfully target fish in adverse conditions. Boasting the legendary pedigree of the Ranger Fisherman Series, the 620VS is redesigned for 2011 with an all-new interior ideally suited for the modern tournament angler, guide or big-water fishing family.
The redesigned 620VS is highlighted by an all-new console layout that accommodates in-dash mounting of popular large-screen electronics - including units as large as the HDS10 from Lowrance. The flush-mounted display eliminates the need for gimbal and swivel mounts in most cases, providing an especially clean, unobstructed view for the driver. 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 quick clean-up.
Additional refinements include a revamped, open floor plan throughout the cockpit to allow for easier movement while fishing and trolling in rough water. The 620VS also sports wider gunnels at the rear to better accommodate downriggers - yet another feature anglers and boating families will appreciate.
"I've been running the Ranger Fisherman Series from the beginning, dating back to the very first 680T," said Jim Saric, professional musky angler and TV host. "The big water performance and evolution of the 600 Series has been incredible. My current 620VS gives me a competitive edge you won't find anywhere else in the market. Combine that with the new console and design innovations for 2011 and I simply can't imagine a better all-around multi-species rig."
Measuring 20 feet, 3 inches with a 96-inch beam, the 620VS Fisherman holds 51 gallons of fuel in a single tank, which is mounted below the cockpit for enhanced load distribution and an even more comfortable rough-water ride. Rated for a maximum 250 horsepower, the 620VS comes equipped with a 24V Minn Kota Fortrex trolling motor with recessed foot pedal; console-mounted Lowrance electronics and a 15x3 on-board battery charger. Additional standard features include digital switching and keyless ignition, a custom multi-function gauge package, fully adjustable Soft Ride seating and an oversized 50" livewell designed to help keep big fish comfortable and stress free.
Paired with a custom-built, tandem-axle, RangerTrail trailer featuring LED lights, the 620VS 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 and 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.
