Ranger Boats 1750 Reata (2006-)

A Well-Equipped Fish-N-Ski for the Whole Gang

By Capt. Bob Smith

Ranger extends the line of fish-n-play boats with the 1750 Reata. This boat maximizes interior space for storage, has an ultra-wide beam for stability, and unbelievable floor and fishing room. Ranger packs the 1750 with fishing features you need to comfortably chase fish near shore and across the lakes while making sure it has the power and punch to pull skiers. We tested this model on Bull Shoals Lake, Arkansas in some pretty strong winds yet found she was a stable riding, model that kept us dry in almost every run and turn. At winds up to 35mph, you expect to get wet, but we only got a few sprays.

Starting at the Bow

The 1750 Reata has a standard Minn Kota 55 Power Drive trolling motor wired with 6 gauge heavy-duty wiring. The remote switches in the bow make it easy to raise the big motor out of the water or lower it in. Up here there is tons of storage. The port and forwards lockers boxes are gasketed to keep the water where it belongs. The center floor locker has room for 6 ½” long rods. Room for the beverages and sandwich meats is in the starboard forward cooler locker with the livewell/baitwell just aft. A neat system converts the bow area from room for the kids to sit and enjoy into a large casting deck complete with a pedestal chair. The deck extension lifts out and drops into place very easily and stores away just as easily. By having a slot to live in, you don’t have to scrounge around in the storage boxes looking for the extension. A high, wraparound windshield protects the cockpit from the morning air and the walkthrough is plenty wide to save your elbows as you move to the bow or back into the cockpit.
