Description

Pristine condition, garage kept 2015 Ranger Z117 with '14 Mercury Pro XS. Ranger Grey, Black and Fusion Orange pinstripe.

Extremely low time engine due to the amazing Minn Kota Ulterra Trolling motor. (Automatic stow and deploy). Go ahead. Be that guy. Back it off the trailer and go park the truck while the boat floats away and anchors via the remote-control unit. Let the trolling motor do the work while people on the dock freak out. Range on the remote is somewhere around 100 yards….that is as far as I have dared push it and I have not had to swim for the boat yet. Ulterra is the 24v version and includes spot lock, GPS and electric trim....extremely handy if you get shallow and want to stay stealthy. Also has enough throw on the shaft so you can fish swells on the "big water" and not broach the prop maintaining your position. Have fished for 10+ hours on a single charge.

The boat fishes shallow water and deep water extremely well. Wide beam Ranger hull handles swells with ease while at the same time giving you the ability to get in shallow places only guys with john boats dare to go.You will love the way it barely changes the deck angle when you move from one side of the boat to the opposite side.

Tons of upgrades...North of $6k worth of after-market additions.

Networked Humminbird Helix MEGA Side Imaging units (7" in the bow and a 10" abeam driver's console). Lowrance TI 7" Down Imaging/Chart-plotter in the console/dash.(Covers for all three units included).

3 New batteries along with an amazingly easy to use and exceptionally reliable Delta 3 Bank Battery charger. Just park it and plug it in using the standard household male plug housed neatly in the rear hatch cover and you are ready to roll.

Seats and interior are pristine,no cuts, wear or cracks anywhere. Clean. No messy stuff between the seats and the hull.

Z-Decals, custom, color-matched carpet protection for high use areas. Classy, not flashy. Can be removed without damaging carpet if desired. Speaking of carpet...no rips, tears or stains.

Everything, including the top-cap decals are color coordinated. Boat gets waxed down every single time it comes out of the water...so you are not going to find a scum line on it.

Includes all the lights...all in 100% working condition. Ulterra comes with two remotes(Handy backup to have if you are on the fish and a remote battery dies; has not happened to me yet, but I like to be prepared). Trolling motor also has the included foot pedal installed in the recessed foot-well as an extra measure of redundancy.

All connections to the trolling motor are "quick disconnect" type fittings so if you are traveling and concerned about theft, you can easily remove/re-install the entire thing in less than 5 minutes for some extra piece of mind.

Swing-hitch, Ranger Road Armor trailer. Fits neatly in a standard household garage. LED lighting along with some custom work done to the 7-Pin connection to make it easier to use and far easier on the eye when hooked up to the truck. New trailer tires installed on May 2020. Includes spare tire. Ranger Cool Hubs (no touch, no maintenance) installed. Bunkers are in great shape.

Custom Ranger/Travel Boat Cover included; stored and never actually used since it has always been garaged and fishes nearby lakes. (I am missing one of the fancy ratchets for the cover...a new set costs around $30 but I just haven't had the need to replace it).

Motor is exceptionally low time and rock solid. I've fished out of it a couple of times each month since 2015 and I'm only just now filling the gas tank on the boat for the 5th time...a testimony to how low time and how fuel efficient it is. Always cranks up on the first turn of the key; no priming and no fuss. The engine easily pushes two adults, full gas and tournament tackle to 45+. Hull shot is quick and efficient...good enough to pop up on the pad even in shallow water. I was the original owner and did the engine break-in myself. Merc warranties these engines well, but I have never had a single thing to complain about with it. Prop is in pristine shape.

Action camera bases/mounts are installed in 4 locations but can be easily removed if you do not want to brag or provide video evidence of your fishing success.

This boat loves the water. Has been an extremely reliable boat that I use often and will continue to use until it is sold. I have taken extremely good care of it.Will provide as many additional details, photos and videos as you want.

Buyer responsible for pick up. (May be able to help if the distance is reasonable).

(Note: Tackle, fishing poles,life vests and other misc. items in the photos are NOT part of the sale).
