2018 Ranger 168 Phantom

With an ultra-shallow draft, zero hull slap at any wind angle, an incredibly smooth ride, and solid beam-to-beam stability, the 168 Phantom is setting even higher standards for extreme shallow water performance. Deck and cockpit space exceeds any other boat in its class and the oversized gunnels deliver a true 360° fishing surface. At the stern, a unique, forward-canted poling platform is engineered for optimum weight distribution and a level profile front to rear. The overall design balance reinforces its noticeably shallow draft while providing even easier poling. Combined with a tournament-sized live release well and baitwell, recessed trim tabs, flush-mounted push pole holders, and a fully featured aluminum Ranger Trail trailer, the 168 Phantom is taking shallow water performance to the next level.

  • Poling strakes for effortless control
  • Zero hull slap
  • Solid beam-to-beam stability
  • Trim tabs for rapid planing
  • Underseat livewell
  • Forward-canted poling platform for even weight distribution
