Ranger Tugs is expanding its dealer network and seeking qualified dealers to join the company's international division.

Ranger ranked eighth in market share in 2009 for fiberglass inboard boats 24 feet and larger and it ranked fifth in the same category in 2010. There are more than 1,000 Ranger Tugs owners in North America and its line of shallow-draft, fuel-efficient boats is well-positioned to grow internationally.

"Ranger Tugs are an ideal complement to existing dealer inventory and will satisfy dealers looking to expand their product line or diversify their offering to boaters around the world," the company said in a statement. "Dealers will find that Ranger Tugs generate a quick consumer following and opportunity for sales growth."

The international sales division of Ranger Tugs, based in Austin, Texas, is led by Mark Belisle and Pam Hoppe. Ranger Tugs models will be displayed this week at the Miami International Boat Show. Interested dealers are invited to visit Ranger Tugs at the show.
