If you've been waiting for the right aluminum boat design, the days of limited features, minimal storage and reduced performance are over! Introducing the Ranger RT178. Touting a literal boatload of standard equipment, this is a Mod V design that's priced right, engineered to excel and Built to be Yours®.

Longer and wider than other designs in its class, the RT178 includes a broad, ultra-stable 92" beam that sets it even farther apart while reinforcing its place as the perfect fishing partner. Inside, the raised front deck includes a recessed trolling motor pedal and a world of storage for tackle and gear. Rod storage stretches an amazing 8' in length and even includes individual tubes and handle grips to help protect and organize your favorite fishin' sticks. Elsewhere, the vast forward deck also houses a removable cooler, extra storage and a built-in step to the front deck. Cockpit seating is custom built in the Ranger factory with premium marine grade upholstery. The contoured designs include enhanced lateral and leg support for all-day comfort. There's a world of even more storage under the seating. At the helm, legroom is plentiful and the dash is filled with performance instrumentation including speed, tach, fuel and trim gauges as well as soft touch switching and flush-mounted Lowrance® electronics. The fiberglass console is performance engineered to go beyond minimal industry standards with unparalleled confidence, strength and durability. Reinforcing the tournament-level features of the RT178, there's a slot between the console and gunnel allowing room for even the longest rods to lay flush with the deck. The design even includes bonus tool holder storage just in front of the console. The spacious rear deck includes more oversized storages with drop-in tackle trays along with a large aerated, divided livewell with timer .

Combined with a Minn Kota® trolling motor, heavy-duty 6 gauge trolling motor wiring, on board charger, tie cleats, flush-mounted throttle control, all aluminum floors and decks, integrated drink holders, and a wide choice of outboards, this is the opportunity you've been waiting for. So, treat yourself to the ultra-smooth ride, responsive handling and added peace of mind in our upright, level flotation, legendary attention to detail and full-featured Ranger Trail® trailer. NMMA certified, the Ranger® RT178 is a true, all-round fishing machine. With so many best-in-class features, it's generously equipped and priced to put you on the water today.
