Ranger 2350 Bay

[caption id="attachment_122538" align="aligncenter" width="4000"]Ranger

The 2350 Bay Ranger takes a bold step forward, combining the layout and fishing features of a serious inshore fishing boat with a luxury cruising boat's finish and comfort. The 2350 features plush upholstered seating unlike any Bay boat I've ever seen that is sure to appeal to the cruising fan who likes riding in comfort. Beginning forward you'll find matching Chaise lounge style seats to port and starboard with removable back rests. A single jump seat rides on the front opening door leading into the large center console. The console is roomy enough for a porta-head and offers lots of storage space as well. The helm station/leaning post features twin independent seating with super plush upholstery, convertible for either leaning/standing or sitting. Battery/pump storage, rod holders, and a 30-gallon live bait well all complete the custom fitted center. Rounding out the comfort and appeal to cruisers is a wide contoured sofa style seat across the transom unlike your typical fishing boat. This seating arrangement may not be what you'd expect to find on your average fishing platform but it certainly offers something very appealing for times when a compulsory river cruise is the order of the day. Surprisingly, Ranger manages to fit all of this comfort without sacrificing fish-ability to any major extent. This boat is still a fishing rig all the way and still offers performance features for the angler consistent with the needs of serious anglers. The large forward casting deck is roomy enough for two anglers to move freely around and while running a bow mounted trolling motor and features a 9' ventilated rod storage compartment to port and dry storage to starboard. An insulated box sits forward center behind the casting deck. Fishing in the aft cockpit is done from the main deck rather than a rear casting deck due to the luxury seating but easily accomplished working around the console and tackle center. The Remote Anchor option is extremely useful as a fishing tool or to stage up at the local sand bar as well. Ranger has struck a nice balance between comfort and fish-ability in this model with a boat pretty enough to make you not want to get her dirty yet built the way that demands you do it anyway.
