Platinum Portfolio Company Ranger Boats on Boating Magazine Top Ten List

Article · March 01, 2010


Ranger Boats, an Arkansas based manufacturer of premium fiberglass fishing boats, is featured in the Boating Magazine annual feature of the best boats of the year. Hundreds of models were judged under stringent selection criteria with Ranger’s all-new Z521 Comanche earning the prestigious honor of placing on the Top Ten list.

Platinum acquired Ranger Boats as part of its February 2010 acquisition of Genmar, a suite of recreational and fishing boat brands.

The Z521 was recognized for its features that appeal to both competitive anglers and performance enthusiasts. Editors praised the speed and stability of the vessel, along with the boat’s running surface and smooth "floating on air" ride.

Boating Magazine's editorial staff wrote how the Z521 pampered anglers, allowing them to "focus on the tournament winnings, not the details of running a boat or managing gear." Interior features, including a completely redesigned console, make this possible.

Ranger Boats, which is owned by Platinum Equity, is the nation’s largest manufacturer or premium fiberglass fishing boats. Since 1968 Ranger Boats has earned its reputation for its commitment to building the highest quality and best performing boats on the water.
