The Ranger Z117 is built with construction details that have long set Ranger bass boats apart from their competition. The use of pultruded parts (in the transom and under some mounting surfaces) is a highlight: fiberglass is tensioned, rolled through a resin bath, and then pulled through a temperature-controlled die. The glass is resin-impregnated to the perfect level, excess gets squeezed away, and fibers are organized into specific shapes. The finished part is denser and stronger than normal fiberglass, which makes its use ideal in high-stress areas.
Inspect a Z117 closely, and you'll notice that all parts of the boat are built with this kind of ruggedness in mind. Compartment liners are beefy, the sturdy lids all have gas-assist struts, and even the trailer sets itself apart, with features like Road Armor finish and stainless-steel fenders.
As one might expect, using these sorts of construction techniques and materials does up the ante.
iThere's slightly more stowage in the bow, and it has the most rodbox capacity (for rods up to seven feet). The cockpit bucket seats are extremely comfy
Displacement 1,325 lbs
Max HP 115
Std trolling motor 55 lb thrust
Fuel capacity 23 gal.
Livewell capacity 15 gal.
aerated, has a divider, filter screens, and a timer.
The dash is a high-point, with more room for larger electronics than the competition. And take a close look at the bow design, which incorporates the trolling motor and recessed foot pedal, flush-mount electronics, and switch panel. IMHO it's the best arrangement of the batch.
