It was announced earlier today via Bassfan that Ranger Boats and their sister boat companies Statos and Triton, were sold to Bass Pro Shops and their founder Johnny Morris. This is shoking news from the standpoint that Bass Pro already owns rival Nitro and Tracker Boats. Early reports indidcate that Ranger will continue to operate out of their current facility in Flippin, AR and that they will operate independently from Bass Pro in Springfiled. We will reach out to Ranger on Friday and hopefully get some more information about this breaking transaction.
