2020 Ranger RT178

The Ranger® RT178 represents the perfect blend of value, features and performance. It enjoys the same build processes as our larger aluminum models, but in a size that will fit in your budget – and your garage. It boasts an 8-foot port rod locker, a recessed trolling motor foot pedal, three tackle-specific storages and an oversized center storage box. The ultra-wide deck and cockpit deliver stability from bow to stern. The .100” hull is filled to the brim with our signature sound-deadening foam flotation for a noticeably smooth and solid feel at all speeds and in all environments. The carpet is rugged all-weather marine-grade, as is the premium vinyl upholstery. A fully featured console houses electronics up to 12 inches, gauges and a cantilevered design to maximize comfort and space. With so much loaded into its 17-foot, 8-inch frame, the RT178 boldly boasts a Brilliant Pedigree With Matching Performance.
