Ranger is by far the best boat.

Which one do you like best? Which one fits your budget best? I prefer Ranger over Skeeter and I've owned both. Look both over real close and If you still can't decide, take a ride if possible. The Ranger will probably be more expensive comparing apples to apples. They both have good resale but I like the Ranger quality, fit, and finish best.

Just bought a used boat, my budget was $35k, Looked at the big four, Ranger, Skeeter, Legend, Bass Cat.
I have fished in all but a Legend. It came down to a Ranger or Bass Cat. I ended up with a 2010 Ranger Z520, they were asking $38 for it, but got it down to $36k. It had the lowest hours (66 hours on original Yamaha VMAX 250), best electronics, was well taken care of and the colors I was looking for.
I love it!!! You might add Bass Cat to your search. Either of these 3 are great Boats!

A Skeeter guide boat from Lake Fork will save you almost $25 K on a
6 month old boat.
Contact Nautical Mile Marine,as these boats come and go through them.

My first bass boat choice was between a Ranger and a Skeeter,
Ranger dealers wasn't"as out going" as the Skeeter one.
I've been Skeeter man ever since, that was 20 years ago.
