I have been looking over the last 2-3 months to trying to pick up a used 20'+ Ranger or Champion (1995-00) since I moved to the area. I have tried craigslist and other websites. The ones that I have found are way overpriced. My question is where are all the good deals? Are people just holding on to them b/c they know they can't get true value in this economy?
Well if your not afraid to take a road trip you can probably find what you want. Last April, almost a year ago, I bought a 2008 Ranger Z-520 Etec/250 with less than 1 hour run time (loaded) with 5 years of motor warranty FOR $40k EVEN! I will admit this was a sweet deal and I had to drive an awful long way to get it ~ but price a new one or even a local (used) 2008 and you will get my point.
Take your time, the country is full of used boats and you will find a deal to your liking.
Try these to start.

Just have to look and jump on the good deals when they pop up because they are not up long..
I bought a 1999 518VX with 200 Optimax for $11,800 and the motor had 154 hours on it. Sweet boat.
2006 Z-19 with 225 Etec $25,800
2006 Z-20 with 225 pro xs $26,000
picking up a 2006 Z19 with 225 Etec HO but this boat is new, just dealer left over... Picking it up for $31,000. Gotta get it next week.
There are tons of deals out there.

We now return you to your regularly-scheduled thread...
What kind of a deal are you looking for, Rangers hold there value better than most, you wont find a 2000 Ranger for $5000 probably not a 1995 20' for that price either.
The only sport besides golf that you can only blame yourself !!!

You are right! they hold value EXTREMELY well. We sold out 1985 385V 3 years ago and we sold it for $9,000....
Rangers are hard to get too cheap..but I am noticing some pretty decent deals! It all depends on price. I know someone had a Skeeter on here for a very good price and it was a 20ft + boat!
Contact steve at mossdale boats. I think he has a ranger in that age class that is for sale. The link to their website is in my signature.
