Current and former military personnel wishing to live the boating lifestyle can double up on sales incentives through Ranger Boats' "Operation Troop Salute," thanks to a matching offer from Evinrude Outboards.

For purchases of qualifying Ranger boats powered by Evinrude outboards made from an authorized dealer between now and Oct. 31, any current or former member of the U.S. armed forces is eligible for a deluxe incentive package.

The package includes a factory rebate of $2 per engine horsepower from Ranger, plus a matching $2-per-engine-horsepower incentive from Evinrude for buyers of Evinrude-powered boats.

The package also includes a $100 RangerWear clothing and accessories coupon card, plus an exclusive military appreciation jacket, T-shirt and decals.

To be eligible, customers must either be currently serving, retired from or have previous service in the U.S. armed forces. Qualifying boats include any new Ranger boat, motor and trailer package that has not been previously registered; and the program is not limited to the current model year.
