The tallest order in the boating world is creating the next flagship Ranger bass boat. Doing so requires an extensive knowledge of—and appreciation for—the past, while putting forth complete dedication to delivering a paradigm shift in all-around performance, fishability, quality, safety, and style. The all-new Z521R represents countless hours of R&D, testing, and continuously raising the bar, and the boat you see here is not only unquestionably worthy of the Ranger name, but instantly evolves and elevates what a bass boat can be.
The Ranger Cup Equipped package adds pro-selected options that let you hit the most daunting tournament trails with even more advantages.
From bow to stern, hull to top cap, the Z521R has been tweaked, massaged, enhanced, and perfected across every inch with a passion for perfection. No element of the boat’s design, performance, quality, safety, or fishability was untouched as we crafted this next-generation legend. The culmination of this work has yielded an all-new boat with revamped and elevated all-around performance that melds with aggressive modern styling that sets this rig apart as the apex of bass boats.
Real-world improvements include a perfected hull that delivers rapid lift onto plane and a stronger top end. We’ve also elevated the technology that comes standard on the Z521R. The Ranger RIDE system lets you monitor and control every critical function while a key fob permits quicker start up and enhanced security when you’re not nearby. The Z521R also features an industry-first push-to-start system that gets you to the next spot fast. The driver’s seat is heated with an adjustable lumbar support to match the Cloud Nine™ air-ride seating that is present in both seats. Long, cold, bumpy blasts across the lake just got a lot more doable.
Deep within the Z521R is a reimagined core and stringer system that not only bolsters our One-Piece Feel Interloc™ construction but permits larger storage boxes for even more space. The rod boxes feature an all-new tiered shelf system for unmatched customization, flexibility, and capacity and the ability to hole sticks up to 9’. Every box features an automatic light sensor that cuts on LEDs when a lid if lifted. A larger day box and cooler feature the same construction as today’s premium coolers for daylong ice.
We invite you to peruse the photo galleries below to further familiarize yourself with the Z521R then contact your local Ranger dealer to see this newest legend for yourself. The Z521R carries more advancements in performance, technology, fishability, and style that not only set it apart from the crowd but leads it.
