Ranger redesigns its website

Ranger Boats recently launched its redesigned website.

The new site features in-depth information about the brand through product profiles, feature videos and other original content.

Other new features include RBTV, Ranger's online TV channel, complete with original video content that features new products, tips and insight from Ranger's pro staff and factory personnel.

Ranger owners also will be able to post and read reviews of each model, giving buyers first-person insight into the features and benefits of the boats. Elsewhere on the site, visitors can access their local dealer's Ranger Owners Group store to purchase dealer-exclusive owners group merchandise.

The site also incorporates an "Inside the Ride" overview covering Ranger features and designs. Highlighting recent tournament results, the "Driven to Dominate" section showcases the latest Ranger angler accomplishments.

Accompanying the new site additions, Ranger Boats is incorporating several new social-networking features. The new Ranger Boats Blog delivers up-to-date looks at boats, as well as tips and other news of interest to anglers.

Facebook users can choose to like Ranger Boats on the popular social-networking site; post pictures and comments about their own rig or one of the upcoming models; follow Ranger on Twitter; or visit the boat brand's YouTube channel.
