The Ultimate in Fish-N-Play Fun: The 1750 Reata

FLIPPIN (December 12, 2005) Life has a way of getting faster every day. So, when something comes along to take the focus off of the clock and the pressures of work, it's worthy of closer attention. With those thoughts in mind, the all-new 1750 Reata from Ranger Boats is more than a fishing and recreational boat. It's a real connection to family, friends, fun, and a higher quality of life.

Loaded with space, comfort, convenience, and total performance features, the design of the 1750 is geared for greater value and versatility. Its deep-V, deep-interior design is combined with upright, level foam flotation and what Ranger calls its exclusive Interloc Construction® standards. The result is a smooth, responsive ride and reassuring peace of mind. Ultimately, the all-around nature of the design makes it a great choice for tournament angling as well as well deserved weekends of rest and relaxation.

Inside the 1750, forward seats are adjustable while the back seat can be removed and placed in the front and rear fishing positions. The cockpit is designed with enhanced legroom and finished in custom-fitted premium marine upholstery. Featuring molded-in driver/passenger footrests, as well as a walk-thru windshield, the 1750 makes comfort and convenience available to everyone onboard.

Equipped with a broad 94" beam, the rig is equally abundant in lockable storage. Rod storage is in the gunnels and beneath the front deck. An integrated tackle storage system, rod/ski storage with organizer and an insulated cooler are also included in the 1750's storage capabilities. By maximizing interior space, the 1750 also incorporates even more storage into the sides and front of the boat. Combined with a long list of features including Lowrance® electronics, a Sirius Satellite-capable stereo with CD player and speakers, a full compliment of cockpit instrumentation, the 1750 Reata is the ideal choice for a world of adventure on the water.

"There's a freedom on the water that this boat really emphasizes. From serious fishing to skiing, tubing and scuba diving, the 1750 opens up a world of opportunity," said Randy Hopper, President of Ranger Boats. "With performance, looks, quality craftsmanship and integrated safety features standard on every Ranger Boat, the 1750 Reata is another example of our legendary commitment to lasting quality and owner satisfaction." Stretching 17' 5" in length, instrumentation on the 1750 includes a cluster of speed, tach, fuel, trim and water pressure gauges. Additional electronics are highlighted by a Minn Kota® 55 Power Drive trolling motor and a Lowrance® X-52 fishfinder with N.M.E.A. backbone. Utilizing the breakthrough technology of the all-new LowranceNET™ networking system, made possible through the N.M.E.A. backbone, the 1750 Reata enjoys optimum flexibility with standard electronic features while also being pre-wired for future accessories.

Combined with the unmatched strength of a pultruded solid fiberglass transom, foam-filled fiberglass stringer system and upright level flotation, the hull is engineered for faster hole shots, strong top-end delivery, responsive handling and a smooth, dry ride. Elsewhere, the 1750 Reata is equally well suited for aquatic passengers. The aft-positioned oversized livewell includes recirculating aeration, filter screens and manual/automatic timer functions.

Equipped with a single-axle custom-matched RangerTrail® trailer, the new design 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. Covered with Ranger Boats' exclusive Road Armor Equipped® protective coating, the trailer enjoys a super-tough shield guarding against virtually every normal road hazard. Combined with matching fiberglass fenders, aluminum wheels, spare tire and wheel, Ranger's exclusive oil bath COOL Hub® lubrication system, torsion axle suspension, and swing-away tongue, the RangerTrail trailer delivers lasting peace of mind.
