Great Dry Ride with plenty of room to fish multiple people.
The Ranger Bay 2180 is a 22 foot long bay boat that is great for fishing in Florida! Outfitted with a reliable 4-stroke engine that's whisper quiet so you can enjoy your company with the engine running. Whether you are looking for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Sheepshead, or even Bass, this boat will get you there! She offers a smooth, dry ride with plenty of storage! Two HUGE livewells, one ice box for your fish and another for your drinks. Rear bench seat for passengers and a place to keep your gear dry. Ray Marine Dragonfly Pro 5 depth sounder, iPad with Navioncis for GPS, and onboard Wi-Fi! Lenco trim tabs, and a Minn-Kota Riptide ST GPS trolling motor with "Spot Lock" technology to keep you on the fish.
Excellent experience with Steven and his Ranger. Had a slight issue with the trolling motor but that didn’t affect the trip or rental experience. Steven was very accommodating and professional. The Ranger is a great fishing boat for the bays and passes. Hope the boat is available again next summer. A++ renter and rental!
If you've got boating and fishing knowledge, and don't want to be stuck going on a charter when visiting the Pensacola area, I highly recommend this boat as an option. Boat was great for a 50th birthday for 6 guys, we had no issues crowding each other. Steven was responsive to the couple of minor concerns we had and we (eventually) got on some bigger bull reds. The boat handled chop well and had enough power to get where we wanted to go while still being manageable, I was used to a 19' freshwater bass boat so it did take some adjustment. We appreciated having the option of renting a boat like this, which frankly, we could find very few places in the country worth going to escape the cold.
