New for 2016: 2350 Bay Ranger®
FLIPPIN, Ark. – Fresh off its debut at the Miami International Boat Show, the all-new 2350 Bay Ranger from Ranger® Boats is a serious bay boat set to bring an innovative, family-friendly design to inshore and near-shore anglers across the country.
Measuring 23 feet, 5 inches and rated for 300 horsepower, the all-new 2350 Bay Ranger represents the continuing evolution of Ranger’s acclaimed saltwater line through unmatched fishability, big-water performance and unrivaled comfort. By combining the characteristics of a serious saltwater fishing platform with a host of family-friendly features, the new 2350 Bay Ranger enhances the on-water experience for saltwater and freshwater anglers alike, whether chasing tailing redfish in the flats, running off-shore rigs or even cruising big, southern reservoirs.
Able to draft in as little as 13 inches of water and sporting an ultra-stable 102-inch beam, there are few places this dream rig won’t go when the bite turns on. And like all Ranger models, the 2350 Bay Ranger is available with a wide range of precision-matched and factory-rigged outboards, affording anglers an array of engine options unmatched anywhere in the marine industry.
“There’s a lot of work that goes into a totally new design like this, and the feedback we’ve received so far has been incredible,” said Ranger Boats Saltwater Business Development Manager Larry Jett. “It’s extremely comfortable, has more features and delivers more versatility than any other boat in its class. There’s nothing like it on the market; definitely nothing this plush – it’s the best crossover sport/fish utility boat there is.”
The 2350 Bay Ranger’s best-in-class fishing features begin up front where an insulated, 120-quart cooler functions as the front deck step with an oversized fish box built into the starboard side of the deck. The large front casting deck offers plenty of fishing space and increased freeboard for multiple anglers plus integrated rope/anchor storage and pedestal seat mount. An LED-lighted, 30-gallon baitwell is located beneath the helm’s two leaning post seats. Stand-up rod storage is available on the leaning post and at the rear of the powder-coated hardtop, which comes standard. Equipped with an 81-gallon fuel tank, the 2350 Bay Ranger is designed to get anglers where they want to go and is strengthened by the security of Ranger’s legendary upright, level flotation standards.
Beneath the skid-resistant front deck, the portside rod storage features a lined, gel-coated interior that is linked to Ranger’s patented Power Ventilation Rod Storage™ (PVRS) System, which circulates air from a blower to help dry out tackle and equipment after a busy day on the water. With room for rods up to 9 feet long, the rod storage also features built-in LED lighting.
Loaded with standard equipment, the all-new 2350 Bay Ranger features a hydraulic jack plate, LED navigation lights at the bow, underwater LED lighting for swimming, attracting bait and enhanced on-the-run aesthetics; non-skid swim platform with ladder, trim tabs, LED-illuminated cup holders throughout and a step-in bathroom unit forward of the console. Other standard features include an enclosed transom, wood grain accents and hydraulic steering.
Where the 2350 Bay Ranger separates itself from the rest of the inshore/offshore market is its unmatched attention to creature comforts throughout the vessel, making it ideal for families. At the stern, the 2350 features a luxurious sofa-style bench seat with seating for up to four passengers. Additional front deck seating can be found on the port and starboard sides with thick cushioned padding and removable backrests. Additional seating for one can also be found forward of the console. A Bluetooth®-ready Infinity® sound system is also built into the versatile 2350 Bay Ranger, with four speakers integrated into the bolsters and four more built into the hard top. LED cockpit lighting makes for easy maneuvering and rigging on early morning and late evening runs while enhancing the overall aesthetics of this category-redefining vessel.
“One of the beauties of inshore and near shore angling is the variety of opportunities to catch so many different fish in so many different places. Shallow water, big, open passes – you shouldn’t be limited to how and where you fish because of your boat,” Jett said. “As a result, the 2350 Bay Ranger is designed for unmatched fishability. But it’s the attention to family-friendly features that put this do-it-all dream rig in a category all its own.”
The all-new 2350 Bay Ranger comes paired with its own custom-built, tandem-axle Ranger Trail® trailer. Equipped with stainless steel fenders and built on-site to ensure the perfect fit, the Ranger Trail trailer includes an aluminum frame, torsion axle suspension, locking, swing-away tongue, LED lights, aluminum wheels, retractable tie downs, a patented center swing jack stand, and Ranger’s COOL Hub® lubrication system as standard equipment.
