With an ultra shallow draft, zero hull slap at any wind angle, an incredibly smooth ride, and solid beam-to-beam stability, the Ranger 168 Phantom sets higher standards for extreme shallow water performance. Deck and cockpit space exceeds any other boat in its class and the oversized gunnels deliver a true 360-degree fishing surface. At the stern, a unique, forward-canted poling platform is engineered for optimum weight distribution and a level profile front to rear. The overall design balance reinforces its noticeably shallow draft while providing even easier poling. Combined with a tournament-sized live release well and baitwell, recessed trim tabs, flush-mounted push pole holders, and a fully featured aluminum RangerTrail trailer, the 168 Phantom is taking shallow water performance to the next level.
