2018 Ranger RT178C

Whether you're chasing crappie, catching bait, running jugs or tracking down a school of white bass, the 178C is a true fishing machine, built for whatever's bitin'! The broad 92" beam means more room inside. More room to fish and more room for gear. Combined with a horsepower range of 50-75, this rig is responsive and priced to get you on the water in a hurry. Inside, the lower front and rear decks are positioned on one continuous plane, making it easy to move from bow to stern when fighting fish. Three-across pedestal seating on the front deck further emphasizes the rewarding versatility of this rig while reinforcing its focus on crappie and other panfish. Also up front, an oversized well, along with a removable cooler, abundant gear storage, tool holders, and series of drop-in tackle trays keep everything close by and easy to reach. A huge, 8'6" rod box parallels the port side and is equipped with handle grips and individual rod tubes for optimum care of your favorite sticks. Flush-mounted Lowrance® electronics center the ultra-strong fiberglass console while additional instrumentation includes speed, tach, fuel and trim gauges. The solid, stable feel of the 178C is complemented by an equally smooth ride and handling features as well as the custom comfort of premium marine upholstery. A world of additional storage is positioned below the cockpit seating and the roomy rear deck. Also aft, another huge aerated livewell includes a free-flow divider, splash guard and automatic timer. The long list of bonus standard features keeps going with upright, level flotation, all-aluminum floors and decks, a choice of outboard power, tie cleats, rod straps on the front deck, a Minn Kota® trolling motor, on-board charger, heavy duty 6 gauge trolling motor wiring, integrated drink holders, 12 volt power outlet and a custom-fitted Ranger Trail trailer with our exclusive center swing jack, swing-away tongue, waterproof lights, deluxe wheels and torture-tough Road Armor Equipped® frame coating. The NMMA-certified Ranger RT178C... Hand-built for total fishing performance, this super-spacious design is geared to put fish in the boat and good times on the water.
