Default Ranger $$ up 9% for 2022 boats

OK, my dealer sells Lund, Caymas, Ranger, Tritons etc. Ranger's jacked their prices 9% with 2022 models.

That pushes their 22' deep-v over $101k with a 400 Verado.

My question is a hypothetical one: For us who would consider a Ranger, what is that mental cut-off where "just too much money" gets crossed?

A 2021 came in at $127 rigged the way I want it, so I took a pass. Rigged, my 2019 Lund 2075 Pro-V tipped 103k, so I'm not afraid to "fund the habit" (pretty much like some other guys here do also)

At $101,000 I'm most probably taking a permanent Ranger pass now- that's my mental block of $$ to boat ratio.

621fs Pro: 300 XL went from $82300 to 89,995
622 350 VRod: went from 89,900 to 97
622 400 VRod is 101,000.......... crossing the 6 figure mark, unrigged

At what point does Ranger (& other makes) just wind up out pricing themselves versus what you get for the $$?

Feel free to chime in

Happy Fishing!!

I would say it would depend on if the buyer saw any fall0ff in quality or fit & finish. Ranger for years was the benchmark for quality. If todays buyer still see's that value then they will bite the Bullitt and write the check. If they see a falloff then why not look at the other contenders more closely.

I'm guessing most Ranger sales are sales to existing Ranger owners moving up to bigger & better.

Maybe I'm wrong.

I dont care how great something is, at some point it just becomes unaffordable. 100K for any walleye boat, no matter the engine, blows my mind.

The same was said at $30k, $40k, $50k, $60k, $70k, $80k & $90k. The market will be what the market will bare.

And it was just as true when said about 30,40,50 etc. You can not buy what you can not afford, or can not get a loan for... It's pretty simple. So yeah, the price going up 10% surely pushed Ranger boats out of some peoples budgets.

High demand and a shortage of parts and labor is fueling the pricing. Things will change once the economy resets and inflation takes hold. Methinks there's going to be a bunch of slightly used boats on the market in the next few years.

2% annual jumps versus 9%........... inflation isn't 9% or we'd all be on Poor St.

9% just feels "odd", greedy even


Happy Fishing!!

You're reading my mind with that--- I'm probably going to be playing that game out too: trading a slightly used 1 for an upgrade while interest rates are dirt cheap

Hopefully it doesn't blow up in my face & become boatless next July for vacation though!!

Happy Fishing!!

There's a rigged 2021 Ranger 622FS Pro for sale in Sauk Rapids MN $139900....so you might be a little low on your estimates

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...8-78bf9633e0a9

That doesn't include sales tax. So in the great state of Minnesota you can tack on another 6.9%.

Eventually the boat market will crash, along with the housing market. All of these prices are so inflated and are in no way sustainable. Just look at history. We are at the peak or close to peak.

However, with Covid no end in sight, who really knows.
