FLIPPIN, Ark. – Celebrating 45 years of boat building excellence, Ranger Boats commemorates its storied past with a look toward the future by unveiling the limited edition Carbon Z Anniversary Package, available only on the upcoming 2013 Ranger Z520C.

With limited quantities slated to arrive this fall at authorized Ranger dealers, the Carbon Z Anniversary Package Z520C combines the brand’s newest flagship with today’s most coveted accessories and a technologically advanced, head-turning exterior. Highlighted by the strikingly unique paint process wherein Ranger’s custom Viper Silver Metallic paint is applied to the top of the gel coat for a rich, show-quality appearance, the custom look and feel is complemented by a carbon fiber lamination package, red LED lighting and red anodized appointments throughout the boat.

“Forty-five years is a milestone of which we are very proud,” said Ranger Boats President, Randy Hopper. “We felt the best way to pay tribute to this anniversary year was to produce a one-of-a-kind boat that combines our latest innovations with the finest materials, craftsmanship and accessories. The result is a cutting edge representation of the Ranger brand and serves as the perfect platform to celebrate our forty-fifth anniversary.”

The Carbon Z Anniversary Edition Z520C’s standard features will include an exclusive red anodized steering wheel and TH jackplate, in addition to red LED lighting, all of which is available only on the Carbon Z package. Also included is a carbon fiber lamination process which is highlighted in every compartment lid and other strategic locations throughout the boat, another feature exclusive to the Carbon Z package. The Ranger Touring Package is also included as standard equipment, which includes a deluxe boat cover, American Racing aluminum wheels, parking brake, keel protector and integrated Oxygenator system.

Measuring 20 feet, 9 inches and rated for 250 horsepower, the all-new Ranger Z520C is available with a wide range of precision-matched, factory-rigged outboards to deliver an unequalled blend of fishing features and performance. Based on the acclaimed running surface of previous generation Z520 hull designs, the all-new Ranger Z520C sports a completely redesigned deck, complete with unparalleled aesthetics and cutting edge engineering throughout.

Also available for the 2013 model year, Ranger will offer a special 45th Anniversary color package on all of its boat models.
