Consumers Digest magazine named the 2008 Ranger Z520 its top “premium selection” in its list of “Best Buys in Powerboats.”

The editors of Consumers Digest praised the interior layout, seat design and smooth, rough-water ride of the Z520. The magazine also touted the speed, acceleration and standard equipment features of the Z520 Comanche.

“To receive such a positive response from such a reputable publication is a testament not only to the attributes of the boat itself, but also the pride and skill of the men and women who give everything they can to produce the finest fishing boats on the water,” said Randy Hopper, president of Flippin, Ark.-based Ranger Boats, in a statement.

Measuring 20 feet, 9 inches, the Z520 Comanche is rated for a maximum 250-hp and features 48 gallons of fuel capacity. The blend of power, size and fuel capacity make it perfectly suited for long runs on big reservoirs or fishing open water, according to the company.
