2410 Bay Ranger

FS tours and photographs the 2410 Bay Ranger at the Miami Boat Show.




















According to Ranger, the 2410 Bay Ranger was built with versatility in mind—for both inshore flats fishermen and offshore anglers who fish the beaches and nearshore reefs. Features which carry over from the older Ranger 2400 Bay include deeper, taller gunnels at just over one and a half feet, and added deck storage at both the bow and stern.

Maximum speed is 50.3 mph according to a Ranger performance report in February. The performance boat was powered by an Evinrude 300 hp ETEC, though Ranger can outfit their boats with a customer's preferred engine. The performance test also recorded a planing time of 4.8 seconds.

Three livewells are available on this boat—bow, stern and built into the backside of the leaning post. Up front, a fiberglass cooler doubles as a seat and is easily shifted for quick access to an optional head. The front of the console opens like a Lamborghini car door. Other features include midship tie cleats, castnet storage, a freshwater washdown, trim tabs, and an available Bimini or hardtop.
