Ranger introduces 21-foot multipurpose model

Publish date:

Ranger Boats said it has added to its Reata fish-n-play line with the 2050MS Reata.

Ranger said the boat is designed for families who want a versatile boat that is still a serious fishing craft.

At 20 feet, 7 inches with an 8-foot, 4-inch beam, the 2050MS Reata is rated for a 250-hp outboard and is available with motors from Mercury, Yamaha and Evinrude.

Starting at the bow, the forward deck has integrated bolsters and available padded seating that can be stowed to allow for the configuration of a patented folding deck extension that turns the bow area into a casting platform.

The bow has tool and cup holders, a charging cord and an area to flush-mount large-screen electronics. Also in the front deck are an aerated baitwell, an insulated cooler and two storage compartments.

Moving aft via the walk-through windshield, the cockpit has a new console that accepts 12-inch electronics screens and comes with multifunction gauges. To port, the console has a Bluetooth-ready stereo, a phone-charging and management system and a glove box.

In the cockpit, snap-in carpet is available and there is storage for large items such as water skis in an under-deck compartment. Aft jump seats can be folded up to access additional storage compartments, and when folded down they create a large aft fishing deck. In this area there is also a live well and dry storage.

For towing, the 2050MS Reata comes on a custom-built tandem-axle trailer.
