Fits in your budget...and in your garage

The Ranger® Z185 represents the perfect blend of economy and performance. At 18 feet, 8 inches in length, the Z185 boasts an extra wide 96-inch beam for maximum storage, handling, comfort and stability. The time-tested hull is agile, smooth, and solid while the interior strikes a perfect balance of convenience and efficiency. Dual rod boxes with gas-spring assists, triple-lip seals and deep drain channels keep your gear dry and accessible. Up front, a recessed trolling motor pedal, flush-mounted electronics and a Minn Kota® trolling motor let you focus on the fish and the timed, divided and aerated tournament-size livewell is designed to keep your catch spunky all day long. Our exclusive Rite-Track Keel® delivers maximum confidence at any speed while hydraulic steering delivers solid all-around handling. Compact in size and big on performance, the Ranger Z185 boasts big-league construction with a legendary pedigree.
