Ranger 520C ride ?

Recommended Posts

I'm used to the ride of a Champion 206.  I haven't ridden in a Ranger for a long time.  I'm just wondering how todays Rangers ride compared to Champions.  I'm fixing to buy a new boat and have narrowed it down the the 520 C or the new Charger Elite which is a Champion 210.  Either way the motor will be a Merc Pro XS 250.

I have a friend that made the very switch you are considering two years ago. He told me the Ranger was faster but the ride was not nearly as good as the Champion. He also went from Yamaha to Pro XS. I think his outboards were both 250's, can't remember for sure on the Yamaha. I can try to put you together if you wish and he doesn't mind. Let me know.....Al

A lot of Champion guys are going to Phoenix boats. They have one of the smoothest or softest re-entries when coming off a wave. The ride really nice. I have driven the 618 and was amazed, but I have several friends with their 920 ProXPs and they are really happy with them.
