Flippin, AR-based Ranger Boats has launched two new 2012 models – the Comanche Z520 and Comanche Z522 – with what the company describes as “a long list of refinements” led by a raised front casting deck, designed to facilitate casting in tight quarters. “Without changing the highly acclaimed hull design, the increased height of the casting deck will in turn allow more space in the boats’ storage and rod lockers” notes a company press release. Also on the front deck, anglers will find a recessed foot pedal standard on all 2012 Ranger Z500 Comanche Series models.
Additional enhancements have been made on the company’s Z500 Series trailers, as well. All 2012 models will feature new style lines and be equipped with an additional step integrated into the fiberglass fender, making it even easier to access the vessel.
Also introduced for the 2012 model year, Ranger is now offering a “Touring Package” that combines several of the most popular add-ons in one package. This includes a Hamby’s keel protector, deluxe traveling boat cover, water line stripe, Oxygenator, as well as a trailer parking brake and aluminum wheels from American Racing.
